    Installing a used clockspring

    Anyone have any tips for installing a working used clockspring? I want to make sure it doesn't get overwound one direction or the other.

    Anyone have any pictures of a bosal tow bar installed on a mk5 jetta?

    Well they have a different rear bumper for the jsw and end up doing some funky hack on the rear bumper where they have a template that they cut out.

    BRM Low boost below 1800rpm issue

    Yeah already played with that. Using a zip tie is a pretty sloppy way of doing it though as it can sometimes jump onto the side of the adjustment nut or the actuator arm, it can also jump around on the VNT nipple or land on the rubber vacuum hose. I used stainless steel mechanic safety wire...
