      Those are the stock shaft differences. You can modify the original shaft [trim the gear thinner] so the crank/rod does not hit it. Timbo's page...

      I agree you should not overthink things but I'm pretty good at it. What goes on in my head is pretty scary.

      One thing for certain as time goes by, information is lost and questions come up again....

      Yesterday, I had time to play with the wastegate and replace the compressor housing gasket [I tore it while clocking it]. I called my trusty Mercedes Jesus and he told me that it's about 1 turn for...

      The only intermediate bearing that I've ever installed that needed a ream was in the early 80's. I suspect nobody makes them now.

      I would think twice before installing that engine with a tight...

      If it's an automatic transmission, the front wheels must not be turning. Do not forget, if you elect to keep all the wheels on the ground, make certain the steering wheel is unlocked and the...

      URO is another bad one.

      No matter what anyone say's, lifetime warranty parts at OReally, Autozone, Carquest, and all the other box stores are pretty much junk. Sure their lifetime, but you will be...

      As for why the Germans elected to have so many foot notes? Because, they are Germans. I believe most German engineers want to do things right, then on...

      Good to know that the noise was so loud that it was obnoxious. Maybe I will take off the exhaust at the down pipe so I can hear it myself. I have driven the car with the wife [no she's not scared of...

      You could always hook a test light to the exciter wire or rev the engine to about 4k and the alternator will turn on. Obviously, you only need that alternator for longer running times, not to move it...

      Make certain there is a good spring contact on that fuse too. Not a bad idea to solder the wire connector on too.

      Get the diesel version starter, not the gas version. The automatic starter has a shorter nose and fits perfectly. Yes, the circuit 50 is a spade terminal so you need to modify the harness slightly....

      Within 30 seconds of you video you proved my point. Thank you.

      IF you do not maintain your engine with the proper oils/filters, you may need to flush things out. Especially with the VANOS system....

      6N0 820 679C appears to be the part you want and you get what you pay for.

      I have never heard how loud an open wastegate is. Even if it was not that loud, exhaust belongs in the back. Having it go out the back allows me to have a 1/5" tailpipe at the stock location. Making...

      Most people know, I'm not a fan of Meyle. It's very misleading to have a package labeled Meyle German but a sticker says it's made in China. The good thing is that it will probably work. It's hard to...

      That is not the cold idle hose. That is for the blow by. I would not recommend pinching that off for any amount of time. The blow by has to go somewhere so pinching it off could cause some seals to...

      No matter how you add it up, a turbo will add way more power and be much more driveable than a normally aspirated engine. I just do not see 150HP NA as a daily driver unless you like driving at high...
