      I got a 180degree bend that im gonna use off the valve cover thread, and the line will run from there to the catch can mounted where the windshield washer fluid is current sitting windshield washer fluid is over rated anyway lol

      Btw TT has the best deals on "R" valves, almost identical to OEM valves except the TT valves have single grove keepers, and not tripple (not a big deal IMO) and literally cost HALF as much, $30 vs $67

      OHHHHH and guys, if for whatever reason you have to remove the 24 damn valves from your head lol, dont let the machine shop rip you off!!! they wanted to charge me 4hrs of labor for each removal and install $700 !!! i went and bought the VW tool for that head(a rail system) $130, and it took lil ol me all ALONE, a whole 40min wtf?? haha i got a really good deal on the rest of the work tho

      Cars coming on nicely!
      So did you lot across the pond only get fwd 24v's? Ours were only 4 motion and a bit over 200hp in the old A3 was bad enough with fwd (non ATB diff tho), let alone the 400-500whp+ some of you are running!

      Did you get the R32 in the States? Was thinking with the money you've spent on engine and prep you should look into sourcing Haldex for it.

      I already talked to them, you have to give them your entire performance setup, and they build your manifold custom to your specs

      I have a few fuel parts you may be interested in. I was planning on doing a build similar to yours, but I decided to go an all motor route and don't need this big of a fuel system.

      PICS HERE: http://imgur.com/a/Hc7S0

      The FPR is http://aeromotiveinc.com/products-pa...ass-regulator/, the injectors are Siemens 870cc, and there are 2 walbro gsl392.

      I've been looking for a stock rail and saw you had one for sale over in 3.2 technical, let me know if you want to do an exchange of some kind, or not I still want a stock rail either way.

      I also have enough AN fitting to convert the whole fuel system to AN, a Y fitting to run the two pumps in parallel, and two sets of upper/lower timing covers.

      Let me know if your interested in any of it, or if anyone else wants any of it. I'm not quite ready to go to the classifieds with it yet.

      Few tear down shot









      Had only one slip up, we broke the lower chain guide on the head besides that it went pretty smoothly, took me about 5hrs to pull the head off! Next.......new head goes on
