      yep. cel is gone...! like i said on the other thread, the plans are simple: LSD, pistons, turbo and all the related parts, and thats will probably be it for next year as well...

      I'm thinking of getting an LSD too and since I'm running basically a junior version of your setup, which LSD do you think would be best for the 2.5?

      this is just the beginning.

      it ws dirty


      just polished a bit


      wiring, relocated. SAI hoses removed.


      a side look.



      on the SAI removal.

      i have 2 codes so far. nothing to worry about


      it gets a lil rich on star ups.


      once warm it goes back to normal


      i havent yet gotten my block off plates... but the SAI is disconnected, and so are the hoses. but the thing is just physically there... for now.

      i was bored, and decided to thermal coat the exhaust... i'm doing it by sections, so i started from the back, just cause it was easier.

      tools


      first coat


      second coat


      third coat


      all done!!

      tomorrow i gotta wake up at 630 to fix the car... the thread in the tranny for the dogbone mount got all messed up, cause when we did the tranny swap the air tools over torqued it and when i took the bolt out on thursday to install the HPA puck, there was no way to get it back in.

      today i got the Heli Coil kit, and tomorrow i gotta wake a 630, drill the hole, tap it, insert the new thread, put bolt and torque down to 30lb.... then its the test drive.

      in the last 2 months, i have had the car down for 5 weeks. it sucks...

      as for the exhaust, my trunk was getting unusually hot after road trips... and i mean REALLY hot... so i decided to wrap it, to contain the heat.

      some companies say that a termal contained exhaust flows faster and therefore gives more hp... i dont believe so... i just like to maintain temps at a min.

      i wrapped the headers cause the engine bay was getting really hot... and it actually helped a LOT.

      and well, now the exhaust cause like i said, the trunk was hot.

      stainless releases heat REALLY easy. same with aluminum

      ok so, finally i fixed the car, and i could drive it.
      the issue had nothing to do with HPA or its puck!

      a little back story: my car is a 6spd MT jetta 2.5L
      -eurojet headers
      -high flow cat/ downpipe
      -neuspeed power pulley
      -neuspeed intake
      -awe exhaust
      -unitronic stage 2

      -bsh motor mount
      -bsh tranny mount
      -bsh dog bone mount
      -HPA 85a puck.

      so.. i turn the car on, instantly i can feel more vibrations.
      i put it on reverse, and well.. it shaked a little... nothing bad i tell myself.
      then i put it in first... i drive up to 3k, same as it was...[shift to 2nd]... and then the car shaked some more. every thing was rattling... and i told to myself, this is why i chose 85a... its the 2nd hardest... i can tolerate the in cabin shaking (more than little vibrations)

      then eventually i get to the hwy. i stop on the side of the road and wait for a clearing. then i SHOOT out 0-90mph.
      my tires are a little bold, and the floor was wet, so i started on 2nd gear. without 100% throttle i get to 7k, and shift to third... then a smile creeps into my face. "wow, this is some CRISP, SOLID and PRECISE shift"... in comparison to having the neuspeed insert, all i can say is: before it was like i was slowly sliding the gear into place... now? i'm PUTTING it where it belongs. Then, again i thought: THIS IS WHY I GOT A 85a.

      by reflex, i shifted into 4th (3rd only reaches 80 at ~7k) and i kept on flooring it... i was doing 100mph [on a close course, of course] without knowing it, and the car felt good. When i saw the speed i inmediatley braked a lil and downshifted into 3rd. and BAM, it was in.

      i dont really know how to explain how GOOD this thing actually is. But i can say is that with my set up, you can feel a definite connection with the car. You can feel the clutch connecting with the flywheel, you can feel each gear going into place. Throttle response is even better!

      all in all, a GREAT upgrade from the "band-aid" of an insert.

      out with the old


      in with the new


      tranny mount:


      motor mount


      dogbone mount, with the band aid
