      It wasn't that bad. It would be fairly easy if it had a main plug for the engine harness. I'm sure if I had to do it again I could probably shave an hour off the time it took me. I did it without a book or program, just went in and looked around to see what needed to disconnected so that took a little while.

      yup..then with everything out the trans disconnects in about 10 minutes...design is nice because it drops right down through the bottom then slide out through the front..no subframe removal.. IMHO the wire harness is the worst part..

      NICE..i wanted to do them myself but i didn't get enough info on it in time..i like to save money and get the experience out of it..if i had the time i would have tried to watch a lot of the process while RSW is doing the work..but i have some other things to do on the car while the motor is out..

      pulled the ECU today so i can take it and get flashed at RSW when i pick up the motor..thats about all though..decided to take a little break today..have to run around and pick up a couple of last minute things tomorrow..as much as i love working on it i can't wait until its done..want to see what the car transforms into, kinda forgot the power of an upgraded turbo kit..

      on another note, got a ride in my friends TT-RS yesterday..i that car...tune, intake and exhaust and that car would be beast..i just wish our cars would have the same type of intake manifold it has..i really don't like the plastic one..

      VagPuncher, are you a trained mechanic or mechanical engineer.

      Just asking because this is some extreme work for a home garage.

      for learning it the right way! No school or books or training beats jumping straight into the deep end. Separates the creative from the cookie cutters
