      Question for you...
      Running in there without the fender liner, are you sketched out about a rock or some other debris hitting your leak detection pump and screwing up fuel and breather lines? I'd try to fab up something like an old license plate folded up and mounted to protect that stuff.
      It's a pretty expensive little part that could really ruin your day if it went

      Geez, judging by the image size and how it still shows signs of heavy compression, that must be a mighty fine camera you got there.

      replaced my turbo oil return line yesterday... much happier with a nicer length line knowing that there is NO chance of restriction. i still get concerned about the return line being so low, but i suppose with crank case pressure and the oil pump pushing i think it's safe...

      that and i took a little look at finally installing my lower control arms... i have aluminum cc lcas and havent yet gotten them on... so maybe next week i can get them done. then i'll do a little alignment action
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      I pulled out the engine cover and the skeletal remains of the old intake box. Then I zip-tied the sensor out of the way. Then I just ordered some new LED lights for my side markers and interior lights. (Thanks to thygreyt for answers to some of my noob questions)

      Moved the battery to the center of the car. Car handles better. With that oem battery centered instead of at one of the ends. I can tell.

      Also changed the oil to Mobil 1 motor is fully broken in. Took a pointless trip to Columbus and back to do so lol.

      Now hunting for some pieces to set the car apart.. Anyone have a spare fuse box harness and engine harness?

      I traded it in! Fiat 500 Cabrio. Hate to be a fair weather friend, but I need to put my concentration elsewhere.

      I wish I could say that it's bee a fun ride, but all in all, I wish I'd kept my Mk5 GTI.

      The Cabrio is fun though.

      See you at SoWo next year. Yeah, I'm still going. I'll just be speaking Italian.

      Yup, Fiat is the company. Fiat is a great company, Abarth is a great car, pretty peppy too. I ran into one and it was almost just as fast as my Rabbit. If we were on a road course that Abarth would smoke me.

      I'd never trade a VW for a Fiat, ever. I dont care if its an ugly MK3 with mis-matched bumpers, it would still not get as much **** as a Fiat.

      The only people I have seen driving those are 40yr old cougars and flamboyantly gay guys, that's gotta say something about the image of the car.

      Pretty sure my girlfriend would dump me if I got a Fiat. Limp wrist syndrome...

      Then my dad would disown me for my lack of masculinity and the gay guy at my work would try to check my dinger out at the urinals.

      Have you seen the Victoria Beckham edition Range Rover. I would drive that in a heartbeat.

      The only people I have seen driving those are 40yr old cougars and flamboyantly gay guys, that's gotta say something about the image of the car.
      I heard NLS is getting one for a track car...

      Also just after making that Range Rover post I left to go to my store. The car started up fine but upon startup I heard a heavy clunk against the top of the hood. Just thought it was my catchcan hose so thought nothing of it. Let the car fully warm up, I then go to put it into reverse and it won't go into gear. I try first it went in and moved. I got it into reverse started to drive away. As I got to the end of my complex to turn onto the main road as I hit speed I hear a huge bang look in the rearview mirror and it was a f*ckin coon that was sleeping in my bay.

      My valve cover is covered in this gross grime, and there are panic coon prints on my hood! Lol
