      ======================

      stage 3 of the build:
      is engine build time, 1200 cc injectors, fuel pump and push it to turbo limit. And maybe change the turbo or hotside to a .63

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      well, here it is...for me to "Finish" the car on its current stage i need to do the following:

      Mods planned, yet i'm done. Maybe? these are maybes, track dependant
      -Sparco seats for better track time
      -Wheel Studs
      -Oil cooler

      Engine mods:
      Max out injectors
      6 port injected meth, and 1 before the ic or right after.
      Re do the intake manifold.


      X. Rear GLI brakes
      X. Audi TT RS control arms and bushings (for whiteline's anti lift)
      X. Custom 3.0" V-Banded exhaust Quad


      ==========
      THEN, the GOOD mods:

      -AWD swap.
      -----front and rear LSD
      -----all the mods for the drivetrain.-I doubt this.

      -Interior:
      -----seats
      -----harness
      -----steering wheel
      -----lil misc fun things

      -Turbo:
      -----maybe upgrade to a v-band and custom tubular manifold.
      -----maybe upgrade to 60xx or 62xx turbo or a 58xx with a BB

      -engine build:
      -----Ferrea valves
      -----forged pistons 8.5:1
      -----Forged rods
      -----ARP headstuds
      -----complete rebuild (new main bearings, new headgasket, hone and polish, etc)

      well, i DO have a build thread on jettamkv.com, and i usually just make thread for whenever i do something to the car.. so, why not just have 1 thread with the story of the evolution???

      short timeline:

      and today is the 2nd aniversary!!!
      so my car is now 2 years old.
      happy to report that it hasnt had any downtime, any other than caused by me, lol :biggrin:
      happy ~43k miles.

      anyways, since i havent taken any new pics, since the one from the hwy, here a lil timeline:
      from stock... to stage 1... to stage 2... to stage 3... which is the current.


      stock car...

      it started as a regular grey / gray jetta mkv 2009 2.5L 5 cyl.





      silver tails
      [img]

      stock front





      eyelids, front_black_logo...black_side_markers, Fogs





      just a closer look of the front... i like the pic





      model .:R 25

      (dont worry, it has since been removed.)




      stage 1, completed. tinted tails, and rear roof spoiler!


      stage 2 begins... and its like: "what the hell?"


      ok, so i take advice and i get the wolfy grill! much better too





      a nice pic in the sunrise...


      at a show, and my first booth.


      when i got the newest and latest set of wheels.


      and at last... one in a sunset.





      Aaaannd... the engine bay...

      my stock bay


      with the beetle engine cover...


      without the cover... just because i like the way it looks.


      the upcomming eurojet stuff





      and at last...!




      and my trunk.



      kind of lengthy, but hope that you like it.

      2 things:

      1 - you shoulda told me about your new exhaust i would sold you the one sitting in my garage with like 50 miles on it.

      2 - if/when you start to think about entertaining the idea of quad exhaust, i know someone who's getting rid of his rear valance soon....

      it has been a fun weekend!

      on friday i went to the shuttle launch!



      my first and only, but it was good! its amazing when you hear the rumble!

      and on sat, i meet with ted (teamZleep) and he drove the car, so that he too could help me diagnose my tranny "issues"... most people say its normal... but i like being sure!

      then i went to Irish Mike's to do corner balance (search if you dont know what it is)


      oh, did i forgot to say that they have a couple of TDI cars they race in the TDI cup?? lol... they are an authority in jettas!
      also, they have a GTI tranny in their cars (02q) and they say its a VERY good tranny... which makes me happier with my desition!

      when looking at the car, i noticed they were packing 235s and 245s easily... with NO camber! so i asked them, HOW!?
      their answer was simple, they rolled the rear fenders...and their quote?? 40 for both rears!!



      obviously i did it... it came out looking good!





      back to the corner balance...

      we lifted the car, put the scales underneath it, and we saw the numbers...


      thats the car by itself, at a full tank.
      Noteworthy to say that the tech was REALLY impressed with a car thats comming in as a 48% crossweight... and when i was on the driver's seat it became 49.6...
      when he asked, how did i tune the suspension to such a "precise" height, balance, etc... i just had to say: i just played it by ear..!

      in the end, we just had to give it 2 spins at the copilot's coil, and that was it!

      i now haz the stance of the TDI cars, same fenders rolled, and perfectly balanced.

      with compliments to Ted (teamZleep) for finding and recommending the shop! RACEKOR FTW




      in the end, i have 1 degree of camber all round, and oem specs on the rest. ftg height? not sure... around 25 or 26...

      not really trying to offend those LOW (23 FTG and lower) guys..

      Shuttle launch was awesome. Did you just have the rear fenders rolled? Looks really good. Now let's see that engine build you have been buying parts for.

      Also i have to ask was it hard for them to roll the rears? They use a heat gun? I have to do the same with mine... And how much did they charge?

      I have to say man, your car is boss with the fine tuning, everytime i see your mod posts you do werk!

      Sadlyn no can't do waterfest this year... For mod purposes I can't do any long shows that are out of state.

      The shuttle was awesome! First time, and well... The last one too..

      As for the thread, thanks! I do try!

      On the rears: I helped the guy, I was holding and heating the surface, and he was rolling... It came out good!
      As for the pricee, just re read the post, its there! That's what the tech charged me... I dunno what's the regular price.

      When I mod, I try to do it good, or not at all...
