      coating looks great Brad, and god does it get addicting. have you tried connectoing the BOC to that flange since it is now coated? hopefully it seals well. Just a thought. keep it up.

      and I will do my best to get you an update as well. I am just about to head back into the garage for a bit.

      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....

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

      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

      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)
