      Yeah, the tires are defenitely bald. Just been putting it off until I get the wheels I want on there.


      What is non power assisted power steering?

      non-power power steering is simply a power steering rack without the assistance of fluid. usually caused by failed pumps, leaky lines, or intentional removale of the afformentioned components. made popular by the fact that scirocco manual steering will not work in a power steering car without finding the increasingly rare (and expensive) u-joint assembly thingy since the rocco is a strange bird and manual linkage from any other car will not work. and of course, they dont make them anymore.

      I know we have had this discussion before..but..I have a manual rack..in my PS car...and it bolted right in with no mods...am I lucky? did frankenstein get to my car ?

      I cant wait to pull my engine out and get that rack relocated..only so I can take pictures and figure things out

      the black car is commonly referred too as "west coast beauty" and has a pretty well built NA setup. this car was featured in eurotuner years back with a full list of specs. i still have the issue i will dig it out. i was making arrangements to purchase it when it went up for sale the first time but due to how far it was from me i settled with the white one above.

      before i tore into it it had:

      2.0L 16 V (swap) (rebuilt)
      9.3:1 compression ratio
      Dished 9A pistons (forged)
      Custom Audi based short runner intake
      40 lb/hr injectors with SX Adjustable FPR
      DTA P8 Pro Engine Managment
      Bell Vertical flow intercooler (28 flow tubes)
      GT-30 Dual Ball Bearing Turbo
      02J gear box from a TDI
      Peloquin torque biasing diff.
      Custom full 2.5" stainless exhaust system
      AMS Cast Iron tubular exhaust manifold
      TT 16V Cam Set
      TT Port and Polished Head
      Full Front and Rear Corrado G-60 Disk Brakes
      Spec stage 2 clutch (waiting on my stage three to arrive)
      G60 Drive Axle

      and a bunch more im forgetting,
      then i started this: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...-teaser-or-two... to build it up to the 400mark. still working on that.

      im also building a jeep in my spare time and acquired a 33 studebaker that i tinker with as well.
      needless to say time is the only thing i don't have enough of. toys... sure, got plenty.

      caster troy's car was in so. cal, im in washington state. it just wouldn't have worked out, i didn't have enough to fly down there and drive back without trying to get him to lower his price significantly, and to be honest i didn't even bother asking him. his car was worth more than he was asking for it, it was that perfect IMO


      and to stay on tpoic, here is the first day i brought mine home over the mountains from where i bought it. i was very happy that day to say the least

      i do recall that conversation, vaguely. but thats how i recall most things so im kinda used to it. without having actually atttempted this i cant be 100% positive, but several who have proven reliable as info sources in this forum have said they shouldnt fit. im guessing you're lucky unless you happened to get the right one with the rack if you picked it up used. but for the most part when ive seen one available its gone in a flash or is cost-prohibitive

      Very nice. I've always loved those TSW wheels. I don't suppose you have a spare center cap and nut laying around?

      The gas struts are something that many owners are doing themselves. There is a writeup somewhere on these forums ... I believe that a guy with a red rocco ... phenom I think his username is did the writeup.

      Do these struts hold the hood with ease? Is it a difficult install? I can't imagine it would be.
