      Sure, you can come and jack up my car and take the wheel off. Jacking up a lowered car sux, you should know this.

      Don't worry, the rabbit will be getting resprayed in the factory LE3K Mahogany... Which I hate, but I'm too lazy to do a full respray. It will also be staying square.

      Oh yeah, I'm the bald guy in all the pics. It's nice cause they make me look like I'm doing all the work.

      Been a long time since my last post. Since then I have replaced various coolant parts. I also ddecided to completly remove all my hvac controls.
      Heater core is gone.
      Blower motor is gone.
      The dash wassuch a pain in the ass to remove!

      Did a lot since last update. Port matched my upper and lower intake, removed more dead weight.

      Also using my old hvac control panel and turned that into a guage pod. Got the gauges from on old junked 944 from the late 70's. Vintage!

      Seny from your moms phone.

      for being willing to show a car in progress. keep at it as the satisfaction at the end is worth it.

      Disappointing news on the car occurring in the last week. Pulled the passenger seat out and pulled the carpet up. Found some pretty nasty holes. don't quite know what the plan is at the current moment. talks of pulling everything essential and putting it into another MKIII/II but nothing official. He'll post pics later.

      you didnt happen to buy this off some guy in austin did you?! im from mn also and almost bought a red jetta from a similar sounding guy in austin who bragged about the fresh coat of paint and then when i got it under some light it had rust spots he painted over, the hood was sprayed black and looked like ****, the hid he installed on the left light flickered and had a messed up intake, the only thing he managed to do was make a fart cannon look semi good on a vw, and i still dont like the look of it but it didnt look out of place at least.. and id say thats not a good acomplishment...

      Ok, so i had a spare tb laying around so i decided to de-bridge the front intake side of the tb. Take a look at the new shinny metal where the bridge used to be.

      I had some idling issues when i first installed it, but once the computer adjusted it soinds beautiful! Throttle response is fantastic. The car sounds just mean as hell.

      I did a ****ty job debridging it, from my research ive done i found that debridging the tb on an obd2 will render it useless. So i just wanted to seee if i can do it. I used a dremel and a 80 grit sanding wheel to do the debridging. Then after i got rid of the bridge i used 150grit to smooth the metal and then 600 for the final sanding. I am very pleased with thia mod. The car sounds amazing at idle and even better at wot. I did however notice at a constant cruising speed of 35mph 2100rpm that the car has a lttle bit of a hickup, meaning the tps might be a bit confused. But its so minimal that it doesnt bother me.
