    ErBall's Thunderbunny Build log

    Well I guess this has been a long time coming. I've been trolling here for a few years and chiming in once in a great while. I'll start from the beginning. I've had a few VW's over the years. Including a mk3 vr6, mk4 24v, mkv Jetta Package 3, and now my MKV Thunderbunny. Now first things...

    Catch-can winter concerns....

    Hello everyone. If this has been discussed ad nausea i apologize, I have searched to no real avail. I'm mulling over the idea of doing a catch can vs. just doing a revised pcv setup (bsh setup). I've heard multiple times about issues regarding colder climates and the issues that can result...

    Orca 2 piece wheels?

    My GLI came with 17" Orca wheels. Come to find out that these are true 2 piece wheels from VW, or at least that is what I'm being told.
