Limited supplies, so I presume limited sizes too.
This is an awesome deal, thank you! I'm picking mine up this weekend.

I will be replacing the clutch in my MKIV Jetta in a few weeks. Just about to 250k miles and the throwout bearing is starting to rattle more than I'm comfortable with. I have all the parts and bolts needed but don't yet have a flywheel holder or triple square bits. I'm wondering if anyone near Bloomington, MN, has these and would be willing to borrow them to me for a weekend?

a standard box wrench works for holding the flywheel, put a transmission bolt into the block thru the box end and put the open end up against a dowel pin.

Don't bother with the local auto parts tripple squares, you'll probably round them off.

soo... I unfortinately killed my jsw. Hit a deer with the headlight while doing 70. Total loss. Thankfully i got gap insurance. Also i think something was weird with the ecu. sparratic Comminucation errors with so many things. INS wants 1500 for it. be a really good parts car. Took the radiator out so it cant be driven. it only took out bolt ons. still straight structure wise. So now i will have a red mk6 jsw with a pano roof.

So I’ve disappeared for quite a long time now, but I’m finally building up my ‘02 Jetta again after throwing a rod. The engine work just got finished, timing belt on order, tools are on the way, just need to pull out the last bit of money to pay for it all. Anything I should be looking at doing? I believe I’ve listed off everything I’ve done.

Mod list:
11mm fuel pump
DLC1019 (stage 3 flow) -May be replaced in the future
PD150 intake
Colt Cam Stage 3
CX Racing FMIC
GTD1752 vacuum converted
3bar MAP
BHW Pistons (so I’ll finally get to have that 2L goodness)
Rosten Rods
Peloquin LSD
SBC Stage 3 Endurance w/ 21lb flywheel
Malone Stage 4 Tune
BHW oil sprocket mod

Other Mods:
3DMFD Cluster (I absolutely love this thing)
Oil temp, quality, and level gauge in pan
Outside temp sensor
AEM Boost gauge and EGT gauge
.658 5th gear
Full turboback straight pipe

You'll need to forgive me, but what is the 3DMFD cluster?

A beautiful creation that replicated an MK7 cluster.

oh, that's the russian one right?

Looked into that a while back as additional instrumentation
would be really nice to get airmass, IQ, injection timing, and other measuring blocks on the MFD

IIRC they let you display actual measuring blocks and not just the very limited information available by generic OBD scanners like the scangauge

Made by Eduardo Diaz, a very economical and IMO better option than ColorMFA. For what I wanted, this cost me half as much as the MFA would have. I didnít really look into what *all* it could do, but it has been amazing for the period of time I was driving with it.

Thumbs up Any interest? Please send me an offer.

Hi everyone,

My son wants to get sell his 2001 GL Jetta TDI. There are 260k miles on the car. We got the car in 2016. Clean title.

Here is some maintenance history:
- 6/16 236k miles: Timing belt, VR6 clutch, new VNT-15 turbo, stainless braided turbo oil feed line, suspension and steering refresh kit, oil pump replacement, flush brake fluid, coolant temp sensor, oil cooler orings, oil cooler flange gasket, all filters (cabin, air, fuel, oil), TDI heater, skid plate and new aftermarket headlights.
- 3/17 244k miles: change oil and filter; new oil cooler o-rings
- 12/16 240k miles: Bosio DLC 1019 ULSD rated injectors including calibration
- 8/17 247k miles: rear axle bearing
- 6/18 254k miles: all filters

Here is the not so good news:
- The body has rust especially the front fenders.
- The interior is not in the greatest shape.
- 2 of the tires leak air. When we put the new tires on the rims we did not replace the valve stems. My guess is valve stems.
- windshield is cracked.
- car has been sitting since June. The battery is dead and will not recharge it seems.
- there is an oil leak from the oil cooler area. We have replaced the orings a couple of times. I have the oil cooler flange gasket and will provide this with the car.

You can boost the car and take it for a test drive. The car runs very well. The engine is solid. This car will drive for many years to come.

If you have any interest, please PM me and we can set up time for you to view the car. THe car is in Burnsville. Or PM me an offer and I can review it with my son.
