    Geared balance shaft reliability?

    Finally got the 2005 passat home I bought back in Dec. for a donor car. Plan is to put the bhw into an 2003 4door blazer I have. I had assumed I would be doing a balance shaft delete, but after pulling the motor today I popped the pan off and discovered it has the geared balance shaft module in...

    Will it make it home?

    Looking for a bhw to swap into my 2003 Blazer. I have located one with 250,000 kilometers (156,000 miles) on it for a good price. I know the transmissions on these are problematic and the owner says this one is starting to act up, being sluggish to shift and sometimes feeling like it is slipping...

    River started to run slush here last week so I pull my boat out for the winter. Thinking I should do the timing belt on it in the off season. Anyone know if I can use a kit for the bew or brm on the bpx engine or will I need to source the kit from Europe? I am pretty sure the water pump is...

    What cars had starters that spin the the opposite way?

    I have the original starter mounted behind the flywheel on the 1.9pd I have in my boat. It is a very close fit between the rear of the engine and the transom, so I am thinking I would like to mount the starter the other direction alongside the block ahead of the flywheel. To do this I need to...

    Just wondering if anyone else has ever had an issue with excessive amounts of water collecting in there intercooler due to the temperature drop pulling the moisture out of the air(condensation).
