      I believe the R32 one is 90 durometer. I've got one in my R32 and I love it. So worth it.

      Nice car. Heard good things about your build threads. I'll have to read thru this thread more closely. Hope you don't mind some PM's...asking some questions about parts.

      It was Volkswagen of Hartford. Iight nice, I'll PM some questions when I get a chance. Nothing to serious or complicated you'll prolly laugh when you read them. I don't think I'll be doing anything as advanced as you.

      yours isn't leaking. that's the vapor that comes through the filter. that's the exact reason i wanted ours out of the bay. puts an oil film on everything and puddles underneath!

      our new setup is routed into the downpipe, just past the cat. it's called a crankcase evacuation system.

      you need a pipe nipple from jegs/summit, a check valve (some don't use this), and weld it in at a 45 degree angle.

      [quote author=Zach link=topic=28358.msg535627#msg535627 date=1302106945]
      A hole is drilled in the exhaust and the nipple is welded in at a 45 degree angle. The open end of the nipple and the slashcut are inside the exhaust. The slash cut faces upstream. Exhaust flows into the slashcut and out the open end of the nipple, creating a vacuum in the hose and crankcase. Adequate vacuum on crankcase slows acidity buildup in oil and helps seal piston rings.






      total of $30 and it works better than a catch can.

      very cool build and good read. However, I couldnt see what kind of numbers you were putting down on the latest dyno.?

      As a fellow 2.5 jetta owner in FL this thread gets a big

      update!

      on tuesday i got my ECU!


      got the tools ready for the ECU re-install


      after driving 150miles on a rented car, i was finally reunited with my beloved.


      well, ecu installed... the car now KNOWS its a manual. no more cels, or dash lights. even lesser rev hang... its good!


      finally back into Gainesville, the hometown. and after over a month of no wash, well.. it was the least i could do.



      and i saw this on the way home!
