      Well guys dumped in a tune from Marc and fired it up... I'm a little worried as I have alot more Clutch Chatter than last year when I was 1.8, clutch and tranny are the same just added Vaps pinion brace and IE reinforced clutch fork...

      In this video you can hear when I push in the clutch, just want your opinions, let it run to operating temp, now gonna go change oil and put my tires back on and front bumper, hopefully take it out and see how it does....

      Yeah when I first started it up it scared the sh*t out of me, thought something was knocking in the engine... I gotta finish getting my front bumper and tires on the car.... I Don't know what would cause more chatter in it, I've got my Fluidampr on like last year... I guess when I try to drive it we wil see what happens

      I had the same issue years back. I just cut-off a conical portion from the rubber boot on the coil and it fits right on. Cut it like on the left coil.

      Dont start it again until that gearbox comes out.
      Ive seen a simular situation before where (1) of the (4) nuts holding the pinion (now pinion brace) snapped (as in the stud sheared but was still held in place) and was bouncing around in the bell housing.
      I assume in the above vid you put it into first (car is on stands?)

      I have a guy coming over that works at a VW repair shop in town here (the same guy that put my LSD in a couple years ago) I will have to start it one more time so he can hear, then most likely removing the damn thing starting tonight

      Good luck man... Hopefully it's nothing significant.

      Don't get me wrong anything is possible but the pressure plate is torqued to specs as I use a torque wrench for everything, and the flywheel has ARP bolts torqued down and red locktite on them.... Will be posting pics this weekend when I get the thing out so I can satisfy mine and everyone elses guesses

      Appreciate the ideas from everyone

      didn't know you had this build thread. Subscribed. I hope the issue stands out like a sore thumb for you when you drop your tranny. You must have that down to a 1 hour job anyway by now.

      Don't start losing sleep. I know I probably would

      Yikes! That is pretty loud for a chatter! I hope you sort everything out and fix the problem.

      Thanks Man, pulled starter and checked flywheel and its not moving, turned engine over by hand a little at a time and looked for rubbing ect with my inspection mirror and nothing looks out of the ordinary, marked one of the pressure plate bolts while turning over and there all there...

      I'm starting to think my reinforced clutch fork is vibrating hitting the pinion brace, (not 100% sure yet) I have my slave cylinder out and am waiting for my buddy to come over, gonna pull the wires off of my clutch pedal so I can start car without clutch pushed in and fire it up, and use a magnet to stick to the clutchfork and keep it sucked in towards drivers side fender and see if that noise disapperars...

      Its probably a shot in the dark but I can always hope (would rather not have to pull transmission)

      Well good news for me, it was what I was thinking,started car and you can see my clutch fork bounce around a little clanging around, use screwdriver and push in on fork and you can feel it a little bouncing and hitting brace....

      Suprisingly after i reassembled everything it quieted down some (still kinda loud)... Not pulling tranny and I'm breaking it in this weekend..

      Thanks everyone

      That's for sure. I thought I would of had to pull transmission. But all is good Just gotta fix a few minor coolant leaks and than drive it and see how Marc's tune works out. He will help me out if need be. Looking forward to this summer now

      Suprisingly after i reassembled everything it quieted down some (still kinda loud)... Not pulling tranny and I'm breaking it in this weekend..

      Took my car out tonight and logged for a run from 1st gear to 3rd gear (heavy throttle in 3rd)had it on low boost (16-17 psi) And damn do cams and 2.0 make a difference, this years 16-17 psi feels like last years 22-24 psi.. Glad I went with the 3658 that I got from Marc, Both Al and Marc recommended them and am very happy with them

      Was gonna go for more driving tonight and now it won't start Charging battery now hope thats all it is I'll post a video one of these days of a short run

      Found the problem with the starting issue was a bad ground, had bay painted this winter and where I have the ground wire going from engine to chassis had to sand off some paint to get a good ground....

      Still gotta pull transmission as the new OEM teflon rear seal is leaking I used the stupid plastic guide and everything.... Oh well no use crying over spilled oil

      Well pulled tranny this afternoon, what a pain in the a$$ that is, found the sources of the noise I've been getting even though thats not the reason for pulling transmission, rear main seal is leaking




      As you can see its alittle thicker than the stock one
