    Everything was going along well on my timing belt replacement, and I figured I'd replace the camshaft oil seals. I might be regretting that decision. Put a sheet metal screw in the seal, pried it out and my f-ing vice grips slipped off and put a noticeable gouge in the nose of the camshaft...

    I was wondering if any of you know where I can get a nose piece with vents in it? I have seen pictures of B3's with vents of various design and sizes. Are these custom? Do they just make a template and cut the holes in the nose piece themselves and then back it with grill material? Just...

    I feel like a newbie all over again. But the question is how much louder are our 1.8T engines during idling and at a stand still? Also, the 1.8T seems to vibrate some more than the V6 I noticed. Same with the Audi A4 1.8T. Is that normal? I know I recently took notice of my B5.5 vibrations...
