Look at post #60 in this thread (two posts above yours)is there any word on these kits being available to purchase? thanks
This is beyond awesome... Now how much was it out the door for parts? I heard something about these being pretty good with a turbo upgradeThanks!!! Yes, I did the install myself. First time wrenching on this car other than maintenance.
The hardest by far was figuring out how to get the EGR/ASV out of the way. Once I figured out that the hose under the ASV could actually be removed, I read it couldn't , I could access the ASV bolts and then the EGR bolts. Granted it wasn't easy to get the hose out of there, but once I did, it was game on.
I also did the timing belt and added the 2micron lower timing belt cover at the same time.
I posted a few pic in my album from the install. Happy viewing.
What a fantastic kit and the feeling that goes with knowing I removed that ticking time bomb is priceless.

Yep, I noted it as well in my install thread. Congrats on the CP3 installAnother added note. Schriebers and myself both feel like our cars start faster with this fuel pump.
Usually it took about 3 or 4 cranks to start my car before and now it's only 1 or 2. Has anyone else noticed this?
Yeah, the extra filter head and cimtek 1 micron filter is a very good idea. Andrew just sent me a pdf of a fuel sample vw had tested with a wear scar measurement of over 560 microns. Wish I could figure out how to post it up. More filtration might not help with that, but there is bad fuel out there. Also the hpfp isn't the only expensive part of the fuel system. Have you priced out a new set of piezo injectors lately?I'm wondering why the 2micron filter when adding the cp3 pump. If they do not fail why is it needed?
Increased filtration protects your injectors and HPFP when used as a pre-filter; this in turn should also result in longer life for the overall fuel system.I'm wondering why the 2micron filter when adding the cp3 pump. If they do not fail why is it needed?
ha ha... i feel ya! I had to pull my ABS fuses out of the engine bay fuse panel to keep traction control from interfering. Also had to clip the RPM pickup around one of the injector power wires to get a good RPM reading.Ha. People around me are retarded about not knowing what to do to Dyno a diesel. You find a place within an hour and I'll go.
