      while part of me thinks this is a great idea the other part is worryed about the search .

      inless people pick there subject title to be within a thread and not the topic they will never find what they are looking for. with so many new guys they wont know to search it that way.

      Where as if there is a million threads they will find what they are looking for and not have to make there own thread.

      good idea but way to hard to keep it on point or clean as it would need to be.

      If the mods could extract and/or link good information from this thread to the Corrado FAQ, it would be great. It seems that if we want less repeat questions then we need a more comprehensive / easy-to-use FAQ.

      for starters, i am not suggesting that i am "the expert", more so that we have a lot of good folks in here that know their ****.

      secondly, i have seen SOOOOOO many of the same thread over and over and over again over the last 7 years, that i felt we should have a thread like this. one that the more senior level forum attendees could check every day to help out the new peeps, and/or the old ones with questions.

      i will check it everyday, and maybe be able to help someone.

      when i started in this racket, i WISH there would have been a thread like this.

      as for the search, i agree they need to be used, but most newbs actually don't know what to search for (ie terminology, proper explanation of symptoms, etc)

      so, lets keep this going and see where we end up.

      Turbos, Timepieces and Firearms.

      I think a format like I suggested earlier would work.

      Start a thread. Get it stickied. Users IM a mod that they know their $#!@ about ... and inform them that they'd be willing to receive IM's from perplexed owners.

      Their name is on the list. Someone needs help. They look at the thread, drill down to the area they're looking for help in and viola! You have an expert help line. Pretty simple I would think.

      If there is no such thing as a stupid question, what kind of questions do stupid people ask?

      i got some questions...

      If i install a non-abs master and booster and other required parts, will i loose my mpg, and trip, distance, and realted functions in my mfa?

      anybody got some aftermarket oil cooler line routing tips when retaining A/C?

      Is replacing the apex strips something a skilled and trained person can perform?

      That will not affect the MFA

      Cooler line routing is pretty simple run it infront of the radiator on the driver side

      Replacing apex strips is something that can be done by someone skilled and confident, but if there is further damage to the charger like the seats where the strips sit are broken then it will need to be rebuilt professionally.

      I'm trying to move my radiator out of the way but there's one plug I'm not sure how to remove. Driver's side, a few inches over from the fan. Here's a pic.

      How I do remove that bastard?


      Also, I'm noticing that while there are excellent threads for doing timing chains, clutches, removing the trans, that there is JACK (that I can find anyway) on removing all the crap that's in the way of my head gasket job. For example, the aforementioned plug. Another, the fuel rail. I have the bolts off but those injectors are stuck fast and I don't want to break them. And what about that clusterfack of wiring they're connected to. Is there a DIY thread for just one-by-one getting items out of the bay for a Head Gasket/timing chains/coolant flush and fill etc and so on job?

      Thanks. Thus far the expert vortexers have been immensely helpful.

      squeeze that bitch like you have a pair. And wiggle it out a little bit. It should come right off.

      LOL. It's a LOT easier when you pull the plug's foreskin back. It's almost exactly like a legacy connection on a hard drive. Rock n roll!

      I like your idea OP, but it would be great if we could find a way to make the info that would be presented in this post more easily accessible to the new forum members. We need to re-invent the existing FAQ.

      Side Note: I have learned allot from this forum over the years and greatly appreciate all of the "experts" out there.

      So does anyone have any thread links on general tear down of the front end. As I said, I've gotten to the fuel rails, but not past. And I have a lot more to go. I'm slowly getting coolant hoses and stuff out of the way in the mean time... but I will need to go further into the engine itself.

      best place to get new interior parts and clips? Got a few pieces that look ass and a few pieces that just don't stay where they're supposed to.

      Like Mr. McNair already said - european performance parts is a good place to start. Christian (used to be HeizerVr6 on here) is great to deal with and goes above and beyond trying to find stuff. Email him if it isn't listed on his site. Just be prepared to pay out the butt for some of those stupid clips.

      You should seriously buy the book w/the digital version included. The Bentley is hands down the MOST important thing you will ever buy for your Corrado (or any VW for that matter). It sucks that its not cheap but the info in the book will save you tenfold in the long run.

      if you put plastic wrap on the foglights and melt the plastic into the crack, you wont even see it anymore. and you can fix your strobe light issue by putting a piece of tin foil in the fuse by the battery. gives it more power baby!
