      Oh I see. I'm going to bleed it again. I ask my 3 month pregnant wife if during the last bleeding if she let the pedal come all the way up? The answer was "ah was I supposed to"?lol poor thing. I will try again today.

      is the G60 and the VR6 shift towers the same? The part that goes into the transmission that is?

      All that's left on the whole build is

      1) The tachometer adapter
      2) Get the oil temperature indicator on the MFA
      3) Get the stupid shifter issue solve! I have a funny (is not) that the transmission might have to come out.

      Having the VR6 radiator fans is awesome for the 20V. The temperature only goes up to 185F and with the A/C running 170f.

      interesting to note. as I have a VR rad/fans in the garage and I was comparing the dual fan shroud of the VR to the Corrado, seems I can swap my dual fan onto my g60's single fan as the secondary fan for the VR is ran off a belt.

      Interesting. I thought about doing a VR fan swap. I will toss in the G60 fan for my h2o attempt and later replace it with a slim fan. I am not too worried about doing a shroud with the slim fan. The temps should stay normal. I have a Shrick pan and it helped on my PG turbo set up. I do not think I ever saw temps get high enough to worry.

      Pretty sure they would fit together. The g60 rad/VR dual fans and shroud. I looked at the anchoring points (if you will) for the shroud and they match up to the g60 one. I want to convert mine to dual fan, for the time being I will leave it single fan as it's only 4 bolts to pull the shroud out and now where that stinkin g-lader gone, there is tons of room up front

      Got the engine bay all cleaned up. I hid the fan control under the coolant bottle just to hang the air filter. Installed the freshly powder coated strut brace. Took pictures with an actual camera too.


      here is a picture of the black with yellow line ABA coolant temperature sensor.




      In order to use the A/C I needed to use the brown plug since its an x-VR6 so I used the TDI upper radiator hose plastic piece.


      This is an add on just to make it look original but since the stock Corrado coolant is G11 but I'm using G12. I got the 1997 Cabrio Coolant cover that said G12.

      dri0514, subscribed, looking good man.

      Most cars (esp my vw's) coolant rubber LOVES aerosol tire shine, such as meguairs hot shine. I used it religiously on my daily 24v/G60/Jeep and it kept ALL of the hoses nice and pliable. 24v/g60 were thrashed in south ga, and serviced frequently when supercharged I used to detail aircraft and high-end cars alike, all used a silicon based product to keep rubber (de-icer boots, weather trim, etc) pliable.

      Spray it, let it warm up, shut it down and wipe it. Give it a shot, I'd highly recommend it over wd, it will not dry out as fast, or ever really

      Not to mention it attracts dirt when you wipe it away and keeps everything in the bay looking great.

      Since I'm prior VR6 and would like to keep my A/C I need a spot for the brown sensor.

      I've though of this hose and that "T" pipe.

      The never ending story. Had to pull the transmission out because it didn't want to go into gear. Turns out the clutch was ****ed. The spring retainers were cracked and disk worn bad. I guess single mass flywheel plus VR6 clutch here I come.
