you haven't had a working car in like 6 years.

Trans is cleaned up after 3 hours in the cabinet (old enamel is hard to get off), took it to the car wash to power wash out any little glass beads from the blast cabinet. Baked it in the oven after I got home to make sure no water was hanging around to rust the bearings before I got it assembled. Wife didn't appreciate that

That is something I will never understand... it is clean and solid so what's the problem... It's the same thing at my house: when I want to clean something just by throwing it into the dishwasher(AFTER I cleaned it already with degreaser etc) the wife starts nagging... That is what it is suppose to do right: clean stuff(whether it are dishes or car parts...)

Titanium exhaust studs are in, trans is reassembled and I picked up a metal plate TB that has the stock MKV bolt pattern and is 68mm. The inlet flange needs modified but it's not too difficult




Old vs new:



Bigger metal TB

Whats that throttle body off of? Always something I can snag at work new, like those hemi throttle bodies. I just dont know which would have problems bolting up. What do you have to modify for the inlet flange?
Got my valve cover bolts! Thanks

Lol that guys been a wreck. Back in the day when me and my room mate came up with the 2.0t coil packs in the 1.8ts abd the spacer design. We gave issam our cad drawings and he gave us free spacers. Then if I ever mentioned it on a forum he was on he would lose his shit an he came up with it even though its on our thread on the vortex.

So much win. The best looking 2L TFSI engine I have seen. Where did you get the titanium exhaust studs from? and have you painted the cylinder head? I can't wait to see this all bolted back together.

Why vent the PCV directly? it will make your engine bay a mess with those oily fumes, as well as it will stink as hell. I'd reroute it to somewhere under the car, or just install a catch-can.
Other than that: boner giving build!!!!!!!!

I had a line going to a catch can last time, sold the can and just needed something to cover the hole for now. It will eventually get routed to a new catch can. I have run it with just the filter before, it honestly wasn't too bad

Thats from when I ran it into my exhaust with the slashcut fittings. That was a bad idea. It basically tuned the exhaust into an oil vacuum lol

Going to wait since I know the tune I have works with my current hardware. Once I make sure there aren't any bugs, I'll start the other upgrades
