      I took the intake manifold back off to check the fitment of the new design for the cast plenum. Some tweeks will need to be made, but I need more than 2 hands to hold and measure so they will have to wait until tomorrow, or until I can get some helping hands.

      Hardest part is getting the OEM rubber bushing out of the arms. Super easy for me since my battery is in the hatch and out of the way. Be careful not to drop your clips into the abyss. PM me if you have any questions. GL

      Finally got my brakes done... Effin eh! stupid north! I hate the salt and snow. I've been down here now for 5 yrs (2 with the car) and haven't changed the brakes until now. Man those 4 M14 bolts were a huge pain. It took a day to get them off. 3 hrs of liquid wrench, 3 hrs of PB and then 1.5 hrs of the home brew (ATF and Acetone) and finally got them loose with a 2 foot pipe. Oh and there was some paint involved... I only have a crappy cell phone picture: (The GTI brake upgrade, just finished bedding them. These were still new lol

      Ate premium one. Here are the rears, but you get the idea. Good luck finding them though, they just pulled out of the USA. The rears were next to impossible to find. The fronts were a lot easier. I grabbed the ceramics to hopefully cut down on some dust int he rear and HPS up front

      the front never seemed to have any dust compared to the rears but after bedding I could see the pad material in the groves lol.

      hmm... I have never seen any pictures of the black and yellow calipers. Personally, I love it and am very happy
