      I know SOWO is a long drive for a lot of people, including me so i thought it would be a nice idea to start a thread of some "just in case" parts that we can bring to help others out in case of breakdowns or issues witha phone number or some way to reach you quickly. For example i will bring a 12v VR oil pan, 16v oil pan, plenty of 1.8t coilpacks, jumper cables, full tool set, and a low pro jack. My phone number is 7032831257.
