      yea when i talked to marty he only told me about 1 option for my 2.0 5speed.

      2.0 axles are a lot cheaper then 1.8t axles though

      If Im not mistaking, the 2.0/TDI axles are skinnier and they have a smaller hub so that's why they are cheaper.
      I haz too many cars

      Weird he asked me right away. Additionally he actually understood how low I was. The man knows his sht. Any other company wouldn't have known the difference between 26 FTG and 22. It would just be a trivial number to someone else.

      I'm guessing the bottom of my coil was rubbing the boot. I haven't jacked it up yet to check. I only reached under and got a bit of new grease on my hands.


      Other news, I put my engine covers back on. Engine bay looks much better now. I think I may polish my FMIC piping when I have nothing else better to do. Maybe break down and finally get a Cone filter. Maybe....
