      my daily has develpoed an issue, so i will be tending to that for now. not sure what all is gonna be involved or what the outcome will be either. looks like the gti is gonna be put to the side for a little longer. not all bad tho its a little too cold to tune it and and the roads are covered in snow removal nonsense so its gonna have to wait til spring regardless.

      So basically I'm am still out of a daily but have figured out that I really don't need a car as badly as I thought. With that said I finally stopped being lazy and got some of the guys together and started working on it again. As said above I have reason to believe the clutch fork is bent, so we just pulled the entire engine and trans. Reason being is I want to go over everything in the bay and whatnot. I'll have some pictures up in a day or two when I get off of work.

      Have a good one guys.

      4" exhaust?! Jeez. That's crazy big. My Supra only had 85mm piping. That's a nice GTI, man. Maybe get a cutout system for the exhaust so you don't get in trouble for not having a muffler?

      just got done pulling the tranny off. got the clutch apart and the shift fork is in fact bent, cracked, split. whatever you wanna classify it as. gonna order a new one from flipside i think and possibly a new pressure plate from southbend. more info and pics to come.

      also was wondering if anyone has any experience on the flipsidecustoms fork, or should i just take a stock fork and make it stronger myself and use it. another question i have is short shifters. who has them, who likes which. any feedback is appreciated..

      thanks guys.

      From what I hear people like the flipsidecustoms reinforced fork. Definitely the route I will be going when the inevitable happens.

      right on, ive heard nothing but good things about them so far, but my buddy has an extra tranny layin around and another friend works in a machine shop so i may just make my own. looking at pictures of flipsides kinda makes me think that there isnt a whole lot involved... idk im kickin some ideas around.

      gettin the flywheel and pressure plate refaced, hopefully that will be done tomorrow. didnt order a new disk mine is fine. engine should be able to go back together maybe next weekend. just need to replace a oil return line off the turbo. lookin into replacing the k member as well due to a decent rust hole right at the mounting point on the passenger side. abs delete will be worked on soon as well.... one step at a time i suppose.

      later yall

      so this kinda got put on hold again due to buyin a minty mk2 daily lol. but started moving forward on it again yesterday. replaced the k frame becuase the old one looked to be in rough shape. luckily i did because when i took the old one out it pretty much crumbled at one of the passenger mounts when i stood on it. ill get some pics up of that mess when i get off work sunday. got the clutch refaced so the tranny will go back on first of the week and hopefully the engine will be back in soon as well. tryin to have this back together for the classics but i still need inspection and a complete custom tune. i guess we will see.
