Miata Is Always The Answer. Either that or an E30/36/46, or really anything would be better than a GTI

Well, since the rear main blew and the rest of the motor leaks like a bitch, figured now would be as good a time as any to just pull the motor and do a refresh. Everything else on the car is practically brand new at this point so I'll just finish it off. Also pulling the turbo and sending it out for a rebuild at the same time.

Well the motor shit is slowly coming along.



Also decided I might as well install this water meth kit.







Hoping to have it all wrapped up by the end of next weekend.
