      Looks good man! Maybe you can chime in on some of these coolant lines.


      coolant return line from turbo?


      red= bottom line from coolant globe to block
      green= coolant line from turbo


      bottom line from mk4 coolant globe to block


      coolant line from turbo to ???
      not sure where this went in the original car and not sure what to do with it?

      --
      compare it to a AWP GTI 5spd
      --

      coolant line from turbo.


      green= coolant line from turbo to 'Y section'.
      red= coolant bottle to 'Y' section to block.

      should I just find one of those 'Y' sections to connect the coolant line from the turbo to the line that returns to the block on my AWP, like on the GTI? I am assuming this is different because my car was an A/T car. Or what should I do?


      here I think the top line from the coolant bottle should go to the nipple. The big hose is for radiator feed. What should I do with the extra spot on the coolant flange? Bottom of my coolant bottle?


      this was for the A/T deal, can I just cap this off?


      Was also wondering if anyone can answer this. If I just use some regular ol' hose from the block breather elbow to the valve cover PCV section will that be fine?

      still need a few things to obtain before I finish:
      42DD MAP flange
      2.25" IC piping
      2.5" Siliconeintake's bar/plate 300HP IC
      2.5"-to-2.25" Siliconeintake's reducers
      billet oil stick tube
      TIP
      turbo-to-downpipe gasket/nuts.
      IMMO defeat/EMS delete/SAI delete//Stage 2 tune
      bits of coolant hoses
      vacuum hose for DV and FPR.
      finish block-to-valve cover relation.
      new MAF

      I still need the ignition control module since I'm using an AEB harness which comes in on Friday, then im towing it to a muffler shop to get the IC done and hopefully it starts. It cranks over and fuel pump kicks on. I'll take some pictures tomorrow after work.

      That pic above (3 pics up) is not correct. You do not want to connect your coolant bottle lower hose to that spot as it is a higher pressure port coming off the head. Pretty sure sure that fed the AT cooler. You should be able to connect it to the one pic down from that which should be the AT return and is a suction line into the water pump (should also tie into your heater core return line) somewhere. Hard to see from those pics and I just looked quickly, so you will want to verify.

      You may want to change that Coolant flange on the head to the non-Auto one as you won't have that extra nipple for the AT Cooler.

      ^ok, that is what I was thinking if the extra nipple off the coolant flange didn't work. You're right, I remember the A/T cooler bottle sitting there and connection from the coolant flange to the spot on the hard pipe next to the turbo. I followed that hard pipe and it runs on the front of the block back to the water pump, so I think I'll be good like you said. And thanks for the info, now I just need to figure out the coolant line fromt the turbo.

      That would be my guess. I would.

      oh right. I believe that one was for the Oil Cooler in. I think some models had 2 on that outlet (like the AWP I got from a Beetle S 6speed) How does your Oil Cooler Lines hookup. I am now guessing there were A LOT of variations which does not surprise me LOL.

      aforementioned AWP with 2 there.

      here is how my cooler lines run- line on the left goes back into the hard pipe to the waterpump.


      and more pics/link to your 20vt Corrado build?

      Issam AKA "INA" had some shop make up a nice AL one a while back. I picked one up and it is really nice with AN threads, etc. It was in the 1.8T forum. Just not sure you want to spend that much or not, but I would assume they are still available.

      Here is a pic. Notice, it does have provisions to add a threaded nipple, but you can easily use a threaded plug.

      werk done breh. after some intense wiggling. I turned the crank pulley over a few times and heard/felt no hard resistance, so I am assuming I will be find and that the 02a BARELY fits on the 20v block. ECS said that the casting imperfection on usually on the late models- I'm hoping I'm ok

      I did however NOT use my brain and torqued the front billet mount down to the torque specs the Bentley says too...and stripped it. FML. So now I need another solid front mount

      Heli-Coil it! Better than AL tapped threads anyway. Loctite for extra security.

      Can anyone take a peak at this? I'm wondering if my subframe is a tiny bit crooked which I'm not sure how, would that cause the gap between my front motor mount and bracket?

      Issam- how much are they?

      Dumb question but is that a VR bracket?

      I am going to launch the entire billet line very soon. Now that I have a 3 axis , been machining parts I always wanted to machine. Have you seen the billet 1.8T valve cover?

      nope the angle is way off. so the problem is the new after market front mount doesnt line up? but everything else is fixed? idd just fit an oem front mount to see if that sorts it out. if it does you know who to blame..

      Not sure how you plan to intercool this thing - but you might want to move the coolant bottle to the passenger side if you run the turbo out line to the drivers side to give you more room to say - change the brake fluid. Otherwise it's a pain.

      To block off unused water nipples I used silicone caps (doubled up) I bought from McMaster.
      A life frittered away disgusts God; he loves those who run straight for the finish line.

      Awesome, thanks. I'll show you how I plan to do it.

      here is how I have it now that I played with the bracket (which wasn't tight)
