      yeah the GF and i will be going to the rally!! some of you other guys should make it a plan to go!!! im sure pat and i could meet you sturgeon bay boys on the eastside of green bay and go from there

      What time does it start? There is an off chance that I'll actually be in GB visiting some friends so that might work out quite well.

      No pictures yet, but I got the summer wheels on. With the rain coming I'll probably have to give it a bath before I snap some pictures.

      Looks good there Tyler. Atleast it was a fairly easy fix to get it running again. I'm assuming you used the Rocco tires, since the ones on there not the best.

      I'd say you made an improvement from the Sable

      Thanks, and yeah I used 1 rocco rim on the driver rear and 1 Borbet rim on the driver front.
      Yeah this is a hell of an improvement from the Sable, this car is almost as fun as driving the VW but a hell of a lot faster at the moment
      The Rocco's exhaust and suspension are going to have to wait a bit so I can get this integras maintenance up to par so when I sell my sable I know I can rely on the Teg if the rocco is ever down.

      If it's this weekend I've got a Dyno day going on in Platteville. I posted it in the Midwest forum here. It was originally going to be for mostly TDI people, but a few people had to cancel, so I figured I would open it up to some of the Vortex members.

      Here is the link to the thread on TDIClub http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=265752

      Since I went to Platteville I'm pretty used to the drive, so I don't mind it. Now with the TDI I actually like the road trip down there or a road trip anywhere.

      Plus it's Mudfest weekend, so it promises to be a good time.

      I believe runs start around 10AM. The plan is to meet up at my place and caravan together. PM me if anybody is interested.

      The second post down on that page has a guy commenting on how someone is selling his old 337. The old owner has nothing nice to say about the guy that bought it.

      Well I guess the originally owner sounds like he's got the new owner labeled pretty well then.
      Sucks that the new owner is a douche.

      Nice! The value of scrap seems to be on the rise, so if you have any scrap metal laying around it seems like now would be the time to take it in.

      Remember how I mentioned that there would be one more snow "storm" before the season was over. lol

      Yeah I ended up plowing today, instead of doing spring clean ups.

      It's funny how things work. I put the summer tires on and even looked at the forecast a week out and it all looked good, then this happens. Oh, well it's Wisconsin after all.

      Remember how I mentioned that there would be one more snow "storm" before the season was over. lol

      Yeah I ended up plowing today, instead of doing spring clean ups.

      It's funny how things work. I put the summer tires on and even looked at the forecast a week out and it all looked good, then this happens. Oh, well it's Wisconsin after all.

      yeah im in the same boat. ive got all season tires on but their more like summer tires

      Haha yeah I am, thanks again for the favor man even tho it was for my Honda and not my Vdub Lol your not a honda hater tho like the many that are out there, in my opinion its only worth hating if its riced out

      But seriously thanks, saves me from having to buy it online and wait a week for it to ship to my door when I can just pick up that valve cover stud tomorrow.
      I'll have to give you a ride in the teggy once I get it on the road and all ^^

      Also I must add, your GTI is sick man, You spun your tires doing what- a 35-40ish roll? Thats damn impressive in my book man. Major props

      Yup I picked it up and it looks like the right part (there is another part # for the longer studs that are in the center of the valve cover)
      Oh and believe me I dont ever plan on snapping any bolts in the first place, this was my first time ever

      Still not sure what my plans are this weekend.............

      On a side note I had a fun time at the dyno day. Put down 151/260, so not too bad IMO.

      I was hoping to be in the 165/270 range, so I'm fairly pleased with the results. Gives me a nice base line to know when I add PD150 injectors and a cam, what the improvement is over what I ran this past weekend.
