    Roll cage for a Mk4 Jetta?

    Are there any options for custom built roll cages that are bent and cut perfectly that you can just weld in yourself? I want one for LeMons and Chump/Champ and Lucky Dog, but it really has to be perfect and I'm not confident in, for example, the Autopower cages...

    2002 Jetta Sacramento (bad trans)

    Yet another 01M failure. A little over 200k on the car, in good shape otherwise, engine is good, interior is good. We will either be looking for good used and cheap 01M to replace the one that took a dump, or we'd be satisfied to just let the whole car go cheap to someone who wants to do a...

    single lobe camshaft wear on PD 2004 (BEW) Jetta

    3.5 years and 46k miles ago I replaced the cam and lifters in my 2004 Jetta (which now belongs to a coworker) because the cyl #1 exhaust lobe wore down to dangerous territory, and the lifter was similarly bad shape. ALL the other lobes and lifters were pretty much fine...

    You'll love this - Redline 5w20 20k OCI And he got reasonable wear metals from UOA on it (if you consider 14ppm Pb "reasonable"). He's now running some kind of 0W5 oil that I'm not familiar with. (Yes, you read that right...0W5).
