    '97 TDI engine into '97 VR6 possible?

    Over heating while full of coolant

    Hey all. My 2000 TDI with 370,000 miles has just started to over heat. The odd thing is that the STOP warning comes on (my UK cluster) and then the temp hits 130. I stop and by the time I get to the engine the coolant is filled back up and when I get back into the car the temp comes back down...

    VNT25 install (still shaking)

    Well, after years of having a VNT25 from a Dodge Daytona (purchased new), I finally got it installed. For the last 265,000 miles (of 341,000 total), I have been running a K04. The K04 was great and I had the boost capped at 24PSI. Suddenly the K04 went south (the same time my mother went in for...

    Exhaust Manifold for VNT 25?

    I am in the process of finally putting on my VNT25. I have had it for years but loved my K04. But after 265,000 miles on the K04 at 24 psi, it finally gave up the ghost :( I had a flange made to mate to the VNT25 and will cut and weld it on the manifold. I have to clock the turbo of course and...
