      UPDATE: Well the new radiator I installed is leaking. Called pep Boys where I brought it from and they don't even sell the radiator anymore. Yeah wow. So I have to order another radiator online and then take the paperwork to pep boys to get reimbursed. So I ordered a new radiator today also ordered a new condenser. Plus I'm still not getting heat in the cabin so I ordered a new heater core and hvac tape. So whenever my new radiator and condenser comes in I'm going to install those then after that I'm going to go into the cabin and see if I need to just reseal the flaps or replace the core. But start up and driving it drives good. Only takes 2 minutes to warm up then it's ready to drive. My date to turboing the car is still end of July early August.

      I’d try to flush the core, rather than replacing it. I did one on my B4 and it’s a weekend job, if you don’t want to cut the box... I didn’t.

      Drive the car while on recirculate and see if you get heat I do this with the winter car, since I’m not going to fix the blend doors.

      UPDATE: radiator, condenser and heater core arrived today. I'm going to try to look at the flap to see if I need to replace the heater core or not

      UPDATE: installed turbo manifold today and fitted the wastegate. Wastegate is to big was hitting power steering rack so have to order a smaller one. Ordered a 6 Puck clutch because of the price.

      Got a new wastegate today should be installing it tomorrow plus mounted the turbo. Had to hammer the firewall and it still just fits have to hammer more tomorrow. The brake line runs right in back of the turbo but the heat shield is still there so should be ok.
