Im in the market for a dead Jetta wagon.... HERES WHY!
First off 3 pages and NO GreaseCar Bunny shots!!!
Secondly... watch for a thread on this cars build up.. coming soon to a vortex near you!
Just need to place orders for the pistons and rods I want then its off to the races (well garage but you get the idea)
The stuff from this car:
Air to Water
HotBits Rally Suspension
and just about everything bar the holy floored shell will be going into this :-D
Heres some pix of my 05 Jetta TDI that I just got done lowering with Eibach pro springs and put some 18'' MSR wheels on!
Im looking to do some work to it but not really sure what my limitations are as far as block, auto trans, axel strength are? Any insight from anyone that knows about the TDI's would be great!
Here's my 2010 Golf TDI going around the SCCA track
I upgraded the tires and wheels later in the season.
Here's a friends mk4 leaving a smoke cloud
It was my first year in SCCA. This summer I picked up a ride with a subbie rs. Which makes a little sad that i wont be driving the TDI around the track.
from an autocross a couple of summers ago..
it was mostly stock back then. I have much better tires and brakes now, along with revo software. I had it on the track once last year, and will definitely be spending more time on the track this year.
yall know anybody that wants to trade a tdi for a gti

Rootrider, how is the revo software? Has the dealer done any ecu flashes to yours? Mine has suffered from the notorious hiccup and has been given an updated firmware that helped. At my 20k, they did a second flash which didn't make a difference. I want to do the flash, but don't want the dealer to wipe it while they try to QA their ecu software on my car.
I'm scheduled to have my ecu flashed by the dealer next week.. and then we'll flash the latest revo revision onto the ecu and see how it goes.
I have a rather boring video of my car on the track a couple of weeks ago
it's quiet due to gopro's crappy audio, but then, all you're hearing is rain & tire noise.. the engine's fairly quiet.
4:20 miata almost losing it
5:10 fast lap on an open track
7:42 highlights of other cars passed

10:26 few clips from the last session
@rootrider the hiccup/shudder/hesitation that occurs around 1800 - 2000 RPM for a lot of folks (you're lucky if you never saw it). Hence the reflash you will get from the dealer and each one makes it better. Mine used to actually die on occasion before the first software update. Because of that, I'm hesitant to get the Revo Flash as I don't want to bench flash it every 6 months, especially if it costs me money every time.
BTW, how do you like your Direzza's in the rain? I've done a few HPDEs in the Rain and found them to be a tad slippery. Speaking of the lack of noise, people would laugh if I drove by all by myself as the TDI really doesn't make too much noise.
I love the stance with the STaSIS/Koni coilovers. That's next on my list.
