      Tranny still doesn't need to be touched to go back from 2 gaskets to 1 split. It's not that much work when you factor in the piece of mind.

      I dont know why im picturing the tranny having to come off in order to remove the chain oh well .. so you're saying the best idea would be to swap from 2 gaskets to 1 and machine down the guide for best fitment?

      Im not going to direct this at the OP since his bay is pretty custom and he has had a hard enough time as it is, however that Quote should sure as hell go in a Sig or maybe even be Stickied somewhere for future generations of modders!

      I took exactly that advice and my car came out of the shop, I put gas in it, drove it 800km home, and have been driving and enjoying it ever since

      OP, I was going to mention why not just take the head back of and redo the whole thing, if only to have peace of mind down the road, but I thought that might be the last thing you wanted to hear after your long wait...

      this wasnt a "kit" by any means .. so nothing fit .. at all really .. and thats my fault for trying to make it work .. between trying to make a 24v downpipe fit on a r32 exhaust manifold with a S cover turbine housing to custom charge piping .. to trying something new out on the transmission casing that didnt quite work out .. not to mention using 2.5" charge piping off the turbo .. 80% of "kits" use 2 inch piping to insure fitment .. but my turbo housing was 2.5 so we went with 2.5 .. everything fits .. its just all super tight and its a pretty amazing setup

      compare my bay next to a bolt on c2 or kinetics kit .. there is a world of difference .. not to mention tom did a stellar job on the wiring .. everything is SUPER clean and everything unnecessary is deleted in the proper fashion.

      Correct that is my recommendation based on a setup that I personally installed and ran for tens of thousands of miles.

      and it can be smoothed down all the way so there is no height difference? or does there have to be a slight difference in height?

      yeah i cant bring myself to dropping that coin on the schricks at the moment .. whats the difference between them and the techtonics .. schricks putting out more power at top end vs techtonics more midrange? I sent you a request on facebook .. I upload more photos on there than I do on here ..

      The info I have shared here is specific to the 9.0 : 1 spacer setup C2 sold in the past.

      As far as the HPAs kits, in the past they used two mechanisms to relieve tension.

      One is the machined guide and two is the oil feed line / banjo fitting that they use on the main tension bolt.

      The simple presence of that fitting takes up a few threads and lowers tension on the chain.

      Don't get distracted though. You are using 9.0: 1 head spacer and your oil feed comes off the top of the oil filter housing right?

      Agreed on both counts, and noted in my previous posts.

      Well, its not exactly a huge secret (in general), however, thats one of the benefits you get (or should get!) when going with a proven kit. I dont think a company should have to share all those little things - thats one big advantage why to buy a kit because (hopefully) someone has figured it all out beforehand

      Like you said, yours wasnt a kit at all, so, in some areas you were running blind...

      Thats how it is when you want something different.

      I thought he was just talking about the head gasket as well. I believe he is talking about replacing the chain though. You need to remove the lower timing chain cover to get it out I believe which would require removing the trans right?

      Yes, if you want to remove the chains entirely, of course. You don't have to remove the chains completely for a head gasket or guide shaving. Shoot, even a link addition...

      yes .. we have the old chain on .. we couldnt get the new chain on due to it being that tight

      in my perfect world .. i would like my new chain on .. 1 head gasket split in half .. and a modified guide if necessary .. removing the chain without breaking it would mean trans has to come out .. correct?

      let me explain that a little further .. I bought a new chain .. new chain wouldnt fit .. so we put the old chain on which was worn out and fit .. but just barely

      Correct, but you want to break it, by adding a link, no?

      I dont want to .. like i said in my perfect world .. with the single gasket and a modded guide .. which is documented to work .. a factory chain SHOULD fit .. but with 2 gaskets

      i dont know how he plans on doing this .. i assume .. break the chain while its still connected but taken off the gears .. break the new chain .. add a link .. run the chain through the gears til it loops back up .. then press them together? but how the heck is he going to press together a chain while its connected to the motor .. if hes going to make the chain longer by adding the link outside of the car and then completing the chain so its all connected .. then isnt he going to have to remove the trans anyways? I imagine pressing a chain together would need a machine press .. or is there some sort of handheld tool that can securely press it secure?

      all i know is he says he can do it .. and has done it before .. not on a boosted R but on VR chains several times .. so lets sit back and see how this pans out

      and just a tidbit here .. I dont do the work on my motor .. all work is done by tom .. am i capable of doing most of this stuff? probably .. but i dont own 1/500th of the tools that tom has .. i just do all the polishing and tedious things .. I work 50 hours a week behind a computer so I dont have time to do this kinda stuff

      Schricks = German greatness with a more aggressive profile! Tt are worth the money despite losing 8hp to Schricks! Power comes on real hard around 4k and lights up every gear till redline!

Using a non split gasket modified for max coolant flow has greater benefits than the traditional split gasket design. Yes, one may argue that a split gasket seals well but understanding how it works you would argue for the non split gasket. Having more layers makes it flexible to form to irregularities in material as well as have a higher tolerance for uneven expansion in bursts of heat.

      I might be wrong but then again, VW/Audi might be wasting money on their headgasket design.

      well....... I just want to know if you actually added the link to the chain or removed the head and split the gasket?? have you heat cycled the car and re torqued the head studs? what are you using for head studs BTW?

      I understand the two gasket theory.. But why reinvent the wheel? For quite a while 12v's have been running split gaskets aswell as alot of r's and 2.8 24v's with good success and no mods to chains or guides. Im gonna run a further spacer and split gasket on my setup, which is extemely similar to yours mitch. Down to the 4" inlet housing and ram horn manifold

      i didn't understand this concept of toms idea with the chain until he showed me how a chain comes .. split already .. so who is the say they can't be taken apart, extended, and re-connected ..

      additional 1/2 link was sourced overseas .. running the dual gaskets is a slight extra bit of reassurance that there will never be any problems .. and tom is pretty good with measurements and calculators so i trust his idea on this and we will see where this goes

      I've been busy all week with this ****

      turning this



      into this



      not for me .. for a buddys 1.8t .. baby throttle body

      his caps def needed a touchup ..

      well thats not for my car its for a 1.8t .. all that was taken out was the black casing and 2 gears inside .. then I threw some painters tape around it tightly so i didnt bother anything .. pretty sure the entire thing can be taken apart fairly easily though
