      Picked up a set of 16 x 6.5 ET33 Tiguan Steel wheels. Had some tires kicking around the ship. They look pretty cool. BUt will look alot nicer onces it's lowered.. and painted flat army green. Also found out why i had a bad clunking noise... rear diff mount was snapped !! SO welded it back up for now. ALso the rear strut had snapped at the base too.. so looks like i'll be buying new rear shocks while i do my springs.

      Got a almost complete brown interior in mint shape !! Only thing missing is the back bench... i have the headrests though... figure that out. Got it for free from the PO. Have some issues to work out with the front seats but not a big deal.. have the original interor that worked perfect to play with. Digging the brown alot more then the faded tan.
      SO if anyone knows of or has a brown rear bench kicking around.... please msg me !!!!

      Was checking around one day and saw that the ground from the front of the engine to the body was pretty brutal looking. so i sprayed it down with contact cleaner and cleaned it up.. can seemed to run alot better and not hesitate. So i will be replacing both engine grounds with 0 gauge wire....hoping maybe this helps

      Had my coolant bottle spring a leak at work one day.... so got a new one of those too lol.

      Still waiting for my friend to get back to install my chip...

      I got my 100 running the other day and today I finished up the last of putting the interior back together and mounted my LS2 coils to the fire wall. It's all set to get the exhaust done.

      ummm....I think i know of 1 or 2 5000's in my local junk yards.
      I've heard of a place called Dominion Auto Wreckers....was told they have a mass amounts of 5000s
      or try http://www.shokan.com..might be a bit pricey... and it's gotta be shipped.. but i bet they would have one.. and possibly even in your colour

      You could build yourself a serious turbo engine with the....

      - Diesel Turbo
      - Diesel block
      - NA Cylinder head

      Some new pistons and maybe a cam .. 034 EFI and you have one hell of a Super torquey high HP engine

      Well I want to make it a serious engine. Just need to see how much time I will have. But I can assure u. With time this will be a SERIOUS engine

      And u can not use the NA head because the diesel heads don't have spark plugs but rather have glow plugs and the injectors are different.
      The engine was apparently rebuilt not so long ago and than it sat a long while. Honestly I don't believe it. I also bought the car with no keys. Only papers. So I will try to get it running tomorrow.


      Oh I will also put a semi good door on my car cuz its still rapped from what happened a few nights ago.

      To stay on topic I also replaced my power steering bottle cap cuz the gasket was damaged and was leaking.

      Ah ok, well just FYI MG is probably the best forum out there for oldskool audis. There isn't a question that can't be answered there. I'd suggest stopping by if you ever need an answer quickly.
