      Fuel and cabin filters today. Pulled the passenger end link to see if that was the cause of my low speed front end groan when turning the wheel. Top joint has a small tear in the boot and is a little stiffer than the bottom. Could be the prob so ordering a pair. Control arm bushings seem okay and I didn't see anything out of the norm with the balljoint or tierod.

      Installed my 42DD shifter cable bushings and NLS short shifter over the weekend!

      Also have an ESC lightweight underdrive pulley ready to be installed, just need to get a hold of a 10mm triple square.

      Dropped it off at the dealer. Due for state inspection and an oil change, plus they're running a special on a 4 wheel alignment and mine feels a little off so I figure why not. Also wrote on the ticket to have them listen to the timing chain to see if the amount of noise is excessive or not. We'll see how that goes. I'm fairly certain I'm still under warranty if they think its too bad and hopefully that covers it.

      Ordered a 74/76mm 14 flute oil filter wrench since I can't find one locally to save my life. Also ordered a triple square assortment from metalnerd.com since I anticipate getting some work done on this car in the next six months.

      If that's your Jetta infront of it, lower it.

      Hacked off the 2.5L suitcase muffler...



      I drove it a day without the suitcase to see what difference it makes...which is not much really.

      Today, I slipped this one on...



      too bad I left the GTI rear valance in my parents garage

      Good call with the ones under the grill. Didn't realize it was a bolt and nut for some reason in my mind I imaged a button head style bolt. For doing something different and something YOU like.

      Looked at it. Broke my hand Tuesday, had surgery on it yesterday, can't use my right arm for 6 weeks, so no tinkering or driving it till then. Driving my sisters crz, and this car is f*ckin sweet!

      Do have a show next Sunday and the car will be there and it will be judged.

      Installed a catch can and boost cap to complete my turbo install.

      I'll eventually clean it up with some better looking hoses but its fully functional at least (and about 1/3 the price of other catch can setups!).

      Also replaced some ugly fasteners in the engine bay with new stainless ones.
