      Started Nov. 26, 2011 started driving Dec. 11, 2011. Can't say Completed cause there's always some tinkering going on...
      Now to get all this...

      In

      1995 VW Cabrio OBDII converted


      With parts coming in from FrozenBoost, ECStuning, APTuning, Maperformance, Jegs, Autotech, Aem, Turbosmart, Precision, Etc.

      the motor had approximately 96,720 on it before teardown...


      Guides were surprisingly intact.. Inside was clean no extensive wear. I guess something good could be said for Quaker State Synthetic Oil.


      Old Head Gasket a little carbon build-up. Nothing major

      While my son works on the head...

      Yes he's putting on the manifold, installing new cams.


      I'm outside working on New Rings, ARP Rod Bolts, Rod Bearings, New Oil pump. Due to oily hands couldn't get the shots I wanted.


      While this dries..


      I'll get to my oil pan.

      I really like the idea of a turbo or super Cabrio. Top down with a full head of steam, ballin.
      Motor looks really clean inside, should run real good.

      Maybe since I have been in the racing scene something was invented, but either I am missing something or I dont understand why you painted your Head Gaskets?
      What is something you learned last year that you are going to do differently this year?

      Copper spray acts like a glue to keep the head gasket sealed up tight. On a VR6, when you add a head spacer using copper spray just gives you a much more reliable seal. Mainly because the head is so big, lol.

      Oh and OP, I think its reall great you and your son are wrenching on dubs together. I can't wait until my oldest son is a little older.
