Dude as always man love the car!
What the hell did you do to your eye bro? Amateur boxer perhaps
I got punched in the face by a hockey rink hahaha. I'm thinking I passed out and collapsed then woke myself up from the impact. I honestly don't know because it all happened so fast. It kind of scares me because I really don't know how I fell. I was skating and had my balance then I remember laying on the ice.
Ha thanks. It doesn't even hurt. The worst part was getting the numbing medication injected into the wound. And the inner stitches. It was so deep I needed inner and outer stitches
dang, glad you made it out ok. Could have been a lot worse for sure.
What are you planning with that 'secret refinishing project'? chrome plated?
Ordered some stainless steel fasteners for under the hood. The company's history in racing makes them seem legit. Baller Bolts
And a big thanks to Doug for helping me figure out the sizes I need. Being away from my car makes it hard to order sometimes

Could you please explain the gear box? It looks as if you have the manual transmission, but where in the world did you get the gated shift box?
I would love to do that to my car!
Lol, I've got stitches that have stitches. So don't feel bad. I'm always just happy that they manage to close it My only concern in your case would be the impact on the brain. Head injuries suck. Enough of them in your life can make simple tasks not so simple any more. As "dick" as it is to say.. Wearing a helmet is a good idea.
The car looks great!
Thanks. The only complaint I have as of now is that I can't focus my eye. I'm assuming that from the swelling and the fact that I wear contacts. If it doesn't go away with the swelling it looks as if I'll be taking a trip to the eye doctors as well
Oh and I just found this. PENDOT is hiring college students for summer jobs. I may take them up on this and make sure that the roads are absolutely perfect for lowered cars.....on second thought I would probably get fired for being to anal and slowing their progress rate
Alright here is one of many much more exciting posts!
I got home from school and picked up my parts from powder coating. Also my stainless nuts and bolts came so I started to assemble some stuff.
Another shot of the parts
A close up of the throttle body
Bolted up to the manifold
A mock up of the coil packs
Fast forward an hour or so and..........
That's all for tonight
Oh and does anyone know how to screw in the spacers for the injectors? They start off easy but I can only get them in halfway with my hand

I was thinking about polishing them if I have the time. Those packs are the only red parts on the car and I planned it that way to draw attention to the valve cover
Thanks Ben. I actually looked at them. The adapters look like they are only clear coated so they would be easy to polish. Unfortunately the ECS hold downs look anodized and I'm not sure how much a pita those would be to do. I came to the conclusion that I will leave them alone until next winter most likely.
Look into the OEM connector cover off the MK5/6 part number is: 06F 971 824 C
Dealers have them for the same price too.
I really like the powdercoating- Ascetics are a part of my car I've yet to touch upon that I'm looking forward to one day!
