Purchased a replacement engine from KCTDI out of a 2002 Automatic Jetta with 11mm pump, turbo, intake, turbo inlet, and everything to replace the busted one in the Golf. 120k miles on it.

Engine gets picked up tomorrow in Central MO, then next weekend, Ill be heading down to Bruces place for reinstall on Sunday. so, in one week, I should have my Golf back on the road. YAY~!!!!

Ill soon have some parts for sale... (gotta pay off the bleeding CC...)

Changed the transmission oil - old stuff was thick and muddy looking, probably been in there for the whole 575,000km - which fixed the grind going into 2nd & 3rd gears

Made a new plunger for the front passenger door open microswitch out of a nylon bolt.

That worked too, so it was a good day

Good deal, growler. I'm happy you found an answer so easily. 11mm and PP357s ROCK with a VNT-15 and RC3+. One of my favorite setups evah.

Installed a Highline CECM and OEM Bi-Xenon headlights on my 09.

Now I just gotta wire up the foglights and the Bi-Xenon shutter.

But for the meantime I am loving the Xenons.

I might consider the PP357s in the future, but for now, I will be keeping my Balanced Sprint520s.

$$ is understandably tight...

520s should also work well. I know this is a lot of work, but once it's done prepare to have some fun.

Yesterday

installed a brand new set of bridgestone potenza RE 070
a bit bigger than what I wanted (235/45 R17) but the price was right.
Also got a wheel alignment.

Today:

replaced A/C compressor
and recharging the system right now at the shop
