Anybody know a part # or make-up of the thick coating used on the underbody of later model VW's? I'm thinking specifically of the layer under the finish coat that appears to be "brushed" on. Thanks for any info.
I'm looking at moving to Ontario and bringing my Malone tuned BRM with egr and cooler delete. I'm just wondering what is tested/looked at during an e-test. One of my readiness conditions is "failed" and I have a cel because I haven't updated the tune since putting in a 1749b turbo. Do they look...
Just found out my rust perforation warranty claim was denied. Pics below. They said the rust was caused from outside influence, such as debris, ice etc. building up in the door sill and damaging the paint. I can see that happening at the front door but this is the back door. I have never had ice...
Is there any advantage in using a BRM bottom end with a BEW engine? I am asking because I am doing a BEW build and I have a BRM shortblock in my possesion.

Just bought a couple front bearings from idparts. The kit came with an axle bolt I have not come across. It's a 17mm Allen head bolt, 8.8 strength. I'm going to double check with idparts that it's the right one before I use it but I'd assume I'd use the 8.8 torque procedure for it. On the site...
I just changed the turbo on my BRM to a GTB1749V and blocked off the egr and removed the egr cooler. I have not yet tuned for the new turbo or egr delete.
When I get up to ~120 km/h, the car goes into limp mode. No codes are thrown, aside from an underboost code if I continue to drive in limp...

What's the biggest front mount intercooler that will somewhat easily fit into a Mk4 Golf? I have a BRM intercooler available but the Golf isn't here to measure so just wondering if anybody has done this.
I am looking for a good driver's side subframe mount. It is the aluminum framework that the lower control arm and center subframe bolts to. Part # is likely 1K0199295F. It is #22 in the pic below. Threads must be intact and no cracks.
Is there any way to activate the radiator fans using VCDS? Will they throw a code if they are inoperative? I just want to make sure they work before the summer as I had a little excursion into some deep snow and they may have been damaged.
Can you cycle rad fans with VCDS?
Is there any way of checking rad fan operation with VCDS? I damaged my lower front bumper in deep snow and want to make sure the rad fans still work before the weather warms up.
