ill second that motion! It was great to meet everyone. I need to get my GOPRO hooked up to the car...
By chance does anyone have an old 4 speed 020 trans laying around for parts? I finally cracked open the trans on the 82 to figure out the clutch issue and found that the release bearing had grenaded, and the clutch finger had welded itself to one side of the bearing housing, and the pushrod welded itself to the other... I'm now on the hunt for a pushrod and clutch finger.
lol nice! no worries all I need is the bottom end stuff, there are plenty in the junkyard but id rather see my money go to a local dubber
UPDATE: I checked in with Aaron's chop shop today.. Gotta say I was impressed by his progress and super excited to see his projects coming together! we also had the weirdest lady come by digging through trash for aluminum cans.
Ok, so I registered for Euro Sl,utfest. A link was posted a few pages back here in our thread. If anyone else is going to go let me know and we can caravan down there.
I've got friends in the area and I will be staying at their place but I can't vouch for them being ok with hosting a bunch of people. If it's just 2-4 people I can probably talk them into it but more than that probably won't be cool, sorry.
Still, I think this looks like it is going to be a good time and I think we could represent our nameless (almost an) organization pretty well at this.
i was talking about an aba but i do know someone that has a few trannys lying around. dont know what condition they are in but i can ask to see if he would want to get rid of one
i was just looking through some of the back pages and notice you have an obd1 aba that you are selling parts off of it, would you still have any of those. im looking for the idle stablizer valve and all the hoses that come with it.

I've also got a complete mk1 non-ac setup (good alternator with pulley, mount, crank pulley, water pump and pulley) if someone is looking for one.
I only need a few parts off of a 4 speed, namely the clutch pushrod, finger, and guide sleeve for the release bearing.
^^ Sorry to hear that man, i'll keep my eyes open.
On the flip side though, I got my hands on a 290 degree cam... I have no idea who makes it but I pulled it from a 2.0 Audi Motor (Hydraulic)
My thoughts are.. "Well hell.. I have a bad ass cam, might as well build a bad ass Corrado"
So this summer will go towards an ABA block, Rebuilt head + Chip/Cam/Header Upgraded Pulley's and STANCE THE HELL OUT OF IT!!! But I haven't been able to find any info on running a 290 cam on a 2.0 block. Any Input other than its going to idle like crap?
To be completely honest though if your going to drive the car somewhat daily or daily I would run either the 268 or a 276 as you will get the most useable power with either of those 2...
Spotted what looked like a mk3 was lowered and with a Fmic and painted what looked like a baby blue primer driving by Boise state I was in my bmp 20th

Cool dude indeed ^^
As for the next meet, it's that time of year we get some drives together. Meeting at 7pm is going to cut that out IMO. I'd really really really like to see us meet earlier in the day, let's say 10am then drive to Idaho city or something grab some lunch, talk about how are cars are the greatest things in the world when they're not broken, maybe photoshoot and then head back.
