      thanks man this is another update


      some of the pics have been posted before


      added cross drilled rotors and new pads





      installed a Stage 2 BFI chip and 268 CAM









      then some enjoyment






      Let me just start by saying this has been the worst car month ever.....my car has never been towed before this month and it has been towed 3 times lol..and only the axles breaking was my fault(i went alittle crazy with camber) , the rest just random issues. so the latest was the crank bolt backed itself out and sheared the keyway and the engine skipped timing and bent my valves


      HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED OUT!!!!!!!!!







      NO COMPRESSION... :cry:




      TEAR DOWN




      FAIL




      VALVE-8 ZACH-0




      LAPPING THE VALVES



      THE REBUILD



      FRESH



      READY FOR HEAD



      ALL DONE




      NOW I CAN GET BACK TO


      I THINK I LIKE THE OEM BETTER



      AND my last day of enjoying it before i stored it on aug 19th lol and headed off to work









      TILL NEXT SEASON

      thanks man...iam happy with it , just need to figure out power plant options

    20. 01-09-2012 09:15 PM #125
      so just a little update , i am fixing all the lose ends on my car to make it 100% so iam re-doing my exhaust , installing an AEG intake , fixing a broken wire , new tires , alignment and a few other odds and ends

      Pacesetter header



      New High flow cat



      got new exhaust studs installed and the header on





      and i am installing this




      the car will remain a 8v for a little while as i am having a baby and have other priorities...i just want the car to be drivable and fun on the cheap to go get diapers(for now).............................................. . :wink:

      P.S my rims will be possibly up for sale when i put new tires on them...looking at something new :lol:

    21. 01-09-2012 09:17 PM #126
      OK so i lied.......Somehow(sprinkled pixie dust in the air and poof) i was able to pick up an 1.8t AWP stage 1 with a k03s swap for the MK3 :twisted: :twisted: and so my current plans have changed . i could use all the aba sensors ecu and harness with a C2 chip and G60 injectors and the motor will turn key with 200+hp .but what iam "attempting" is the other method(aside from standalone) is take the ce2 harness and the mk4 harness and switch all the plugs to CE2 and incorporated the headlight alt and fan from the mk3 harness into the new harness and use the mk4 ECU then upgrade to Maestro and have all the tuning option standalone offers down the road

      ABA management(mind you this is interesting)

      The MK4/CE2 route

      http://myweb.whitman.syr.edu/srotblat/swap/

      ◦Partial Donor Wiring
      ■Basically the same as using the complete wiring from the donor, except you don't wiring in any part but the donor's engine harness. To get around the need of using the donor's matched cluster you'll need to have the ECU chipped by REVO or Dahlback Racing. Pretty much all chip tuners offer programming which disables the ECU's immobilizer allowing the use of your OE cluster, just ask as its not typically advertised.
      ■NOTE: Check your wiring diagrams! In order to get DTCs from the ECU without the OE donor's cluster you must confirm that the K-Diagnostic line is routed from the ECU to the OBDII port. On some vehicles this was run through the cluster and would need to be corrected.
      ■On AWD Engines pin 43 on the ECU needs to connect to pin 7 on the OBDII port, wire should be gray/white.
      ◦Standalone

      AWP swap w/ DBW to CE2 Harness:•Brown Plug, Pin#:
      ◦1. black/purple wire Fuel Pump Relay
      ◦2. purple/white fuel pump relay
      ◦3. red/black starter interlock relay
      ◦4. red/green ignition for ECU
      ◦5. blue/yellow power fuse 43
      ◦6. yellow/black power for instruments fuse 34
      •White Plug, Pin #:
      ◦2. black wire goes to pin 19 on instruments
      ◦3. white wire goes to pin 20 on instruments
      ◦4. white/red wire clutch vacuum vent valves switch
      •Orange Plug, Pin #:
      ◦1. gray/white goes to pin 5 on cluster
      ◦3. red/black goes to back up lights ( I did not use this)
      ◦6. blue/white speed sensor
      ◦7. green/gray A/C
      ◦8. Blue/red A/C
      ◦9. Green/ Brown Goes to cluster
      •Blue Plug, Pin #:
      ◦7. Yellow/Brown Leak Detection pump
      ◦9. Leak Detection pump
      •Black plug I did not use either it is for most accessories. Such as cruise control. The other plug you will need is a large 14 pin plug near the battery. I did not use all the wires but I did use most. I ran my own aftermarket fans so I do not have much wiring in there for them.
      ◦1. green/blue oil pressure switch
      ◦2. black/green power for speed sensor Fuse 7
      ◦3. white/blue speed sensor.
      ◦4. purple engine coolant temp sensor.
      ◦5. red/purple power for fuel injectors fuse 32
      ◦6. yellow/black power for engine control fuse 34
      ◦7. brown ground
      ◦8. black power computer fuse 29
      ◦9. Brown/white MFA computer
      Diagnostic/OBD2 Port:•4. Ground
      •7. K-Diagnostics Wire
      •16. 12v
      Tach Adaptors (for using OE cluster):•MSD Tach Adapter 8920
      ◦Red Switched power
      ◦Black Chassis ground Ground point above fuse box
      ◦Violet Tach. Output
      ◦White Tach. Signal

      I have to start out by saying that your work looks top notch, iv been tossing the idea of a 20v swap myself and after reading threw all the links posted here its seaming much more doable with the strict emissions standards here in new York. Good luck with the swap it seams like youl have no problem

    35. 02-22-2012 03:58 PM #140
      well just a lil update...been super busy lately and now i can focus on freshen up the 1.8T and gathering the parts ill be needing
