      i got all new sensors. didnt feel like wasting time to tape off the old ones.

      got the motor in today. the valve cover paint didnt quite match so ill repaint it with the base coat clearcoat i have left from the bay.

      welp i decided to rip into my wiring harness tonight. got rid of probably a 100 wires that arnt going to get used. im about to buy a painless wiring kit and eliminate all this nonsense.

      how is it that mega squirt can run a whole motor off of 12 wires? why didnt vw do that in the beginning.

      well hopefully my megasquirt kit and harness come in this week so i can get a intake manifold and start the dam beast

      mine looks like this inside my car. i think it might be the ce1 but the pics dont match up. this is my first vw so i dont know crap about what the different electrical things are. I just wanna run megasquirt and not blow a fuse every 2 minutes lol.

      i dont think this is the same as ce1

      You need a Bentley Manual. If the Local dealer can't get it for you, go to Border's Books. If you don t have one local, try: http://robertbentleypublishers.com
