      Thank you an looking forward to it. This build is coming together really fast all things considered. Excited to watch the progress from here, especially with you aiming to take it to shows next season. Would be sweet to watch it rip down the strip at June Bug.

      That's the ultimate goal is to do quarter mile passes in this car. I plan to test it on the street first until I feel comfortable with the car. To be honest, my MK4 daily driver (2.1L + GTX2867R) sometimes scares the crap out of me. So, you might see Bill Schimmel driving the MK1 down the quarter mile (at least at first).

      mainstay, I have a question, and pardon if you have previously covered it...

      What will your engine break in strategy be? Everyone seems to have different preferences when it comes to this topic.

      I break it in hard to seat the piston rings. Change oil after the first few hundred miles. Then drive like normal.

      So, hard as in max load/max RPM limit?

      I understand that different load and engine speed ranges should be exercised. Some folks are in the “easy does it” camp, others in the “drive it like you stole it” camp, and the rest somewhere in between. I dig the high load idea, to put pressure on the rings, but not so certain about max RPM (let’s say 8500 rpm 1.8t hydro lifters and stiff valve springs) the first 500 miles or so. Like to hear your opinion on the latter.

      I will probably keep it below 7200 RPMs to break in the engine for the first 500 miles. But I definitely will be pushing the boost during break in to get the piston rings fully seated. I am scheduled to stop by Bill's shop this Monday and will hopefully post some updates.

      I am hoping someone can help me out here. I am getting the following error code on my MK4 daily driver:

      16716 - Knock Sensor 2 (G66): Signal too Low
      P0332 - 35-00 -


      I ordered a new knock sensor to replace Knock Sensor 2 (G66) but I noticed that Knock Sensor 1 seems to be in the wrong location. Bill rebuilt this engine last year and may have bolted the sensor in the wrong location. Below is a generic picture of a 1.8T engine block. I circled the location of Knock Sensor 1. It looks like it should be bolted to the port on the left. Can someone confirm where Knock Sensor 1 should be located? Also, can this cause an error code for Knock Sensor 2 due to too much variation in voltages between Knocks Sensors 1 and 2? Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Thanks Chad! That's quite helpful. In your picture, the left side port is used, but it aligns about the same as the right side port in the picture I posted. Which is just left of center on cylinder 2. That leads me to believe that maybe my Knock Sensor 1 location might be correct. In which case, I'm inclined to leave it alone. I did check my wife's 2004 Audi A4 1.8T which I sold to a friend and it is definitely on the left side port but more in the center of cylinders 1 and 2.

      Does anyone else have any more insight or pictures they can post?

      That is interesting, hadn’t noticed that. I would have thought the knock sensors would be more centered between the two shared cylinders, but both are off quite a bit.

      That's exactly what I was thinking.
