Pat, just working on the railroad... :)

Yes, I have snub mount. Bought it like 2 years ago.  :)  I am going with ECS combo with the waterpump. Can't beat that deal.

As for the EFK. Is it really worth? Any experiences? What about the belts then if I decide to go that route?

In my opinion, the EFK is worth it.  Aside from the chip, it's easily the best mod for the dollar.  It's something you can feel evenly through the entire rev range.  There's not many mods you can say that about with the 1.8T.  I don't know of anything else you can get that will increase engine power so much for so little.  Plus, it puts no additional stress on the engine.
In case you can't tell, I'm happy I did it.

 I have a floor jack and two stands if someone brings two more we can pull all four wheels off at once and cut downtime.  Jon, thanks for looking up the info in the Bently.

/Matt


Matt, I have a floor jack and 4 jack stands, the more peole can bring over, the better, if we can get 2 cars up in the air at a time, that woudl be ideal.  Does anyone have ramps?  That will help with the sway bar installs as the car needs to be weighted for best fitment.

Hey Van,
I have some polishing/clay bar/waxing to do, also.  I'm guessing that's going to take a back seat to the other projects.  There's just so much scheduled for the day already I don't think I'm going to get to it.  Do you want to hook up some time and we can do that together?
BTW, I can't wait to see and ride in your car after all the recent mods.  Jon says it looks really cool.


Cool, see ya there. I think it looks nice. I might actually keep the lowers unpainted now.
here are three kinds of people, those that can count and those that can't.

I am SOOOOOOO ready for Saturday.  :D  :thumbsup:  The tie rods, tie rod bolt kit and haynes manual arrived.  I also decided to splurge and picked up a W8 sunroof kit.  The new beige does not look that bad compaired to the old.

I will be there, but my TB kit will not be here yet, so I'll just hang around. I will need somebody's garage on the weekend of 5/8-9 for my TB change since I live in apartment now. Anybody volunteer?

Hey Boris, I won't be home all day on the 8th, otherwise, you would be more than welcome to come over.

Hey Dave... not suggesting you'll need help, but if you do need help with the W8 thing let me know. I'm an electronics goddess. :D I also have a bunch of tap and splice connectors I can bring if you need some.

Thanks for the offer.  

Actually with the help of instructions from ECS Tuning I had it installed in about 15 min.  Their kit has everything including a wire tap. Can you believe I installed it in the parking lot of the UPS depot!  Can you say NO patience.

Getting closer to the pimp ride that I alwas dreamed of.  8)  Rollin' with Momma, and Lil' Bitch of the Toecutters MC!   :lol:

Man, I wish I didn't have to work early Saturday, or lived in the Denver area like a lot of you!!  So much fun stuff going on lately :)
