    This time to fix my heater core. Going without heat in the civic sucked. Even though I still have the passat, the civic is my primary means of transportation as the whole purpose for me buying another car was to keep the miles down on the passat and provide me a play thing. Anyways, as you...

    Most of you know about my little project but some of you may not know the kinds of things you begin to realize once you've plunged into a project of significant size. This forum was great as a launchpad for "trying out things" that nobody had done before. Helped me build a lot of confidence...

    A local buddy, John, and I were talking last night about projects. Also, there is another member that may switch to a GTi within the coming months as well. Here I got this thought that maybe I can do something on the side as well. I know that with the upcoming GTi MK5 rolling out soon that some...

    UPDATE 2003-12-12 - Here's a review: The front dropped about 1". The rear dropped about 1/2" (with NO load - there will be more drop in the rear if I start loading in the cargo). The car no longer looks like an SUV, but because the 2002 wagon starts off so high, with the drop it doesn't look...

    Okay guys. I am working on a new turbo system for my car. After having the RS4 ko4 turbo set up for 6 month. I got bored with it. I can tell you that my car does run great but with all my boys having Pes Stage III, I want to keep up with them in the top end. New project consist of...

    Over the past few nights, I have taken on a new project. While my car is still tied up at the dealer, I have decided to work on a few auto body items for when I get the car back. A few months ago, I bought a Deitrich bumper from Jason (Thumber) and when he had the bumper, a tow truck ended up...

    Well, as many of you know, I've been dreaming for YEARS about this and the first BIG STEP has been overcome. Today, I called my wife and told her I found what I believed to be the donor car for my future project. I addressed her main concern of time and money by indicating this was planned from...

    UPDATE: I've refreshed the results as of this morning 14 October. ----------------- Here's the deal: I want to put together a table of suspension codes, vehicle types, and weight loadings for 1BE and 1BA suspensions. (There is a special agenda: I believe that one should determine the correct...

    Well, for better or worse I have picked up another project to work on. My Passat has become more of a garage car as I keep fixing it up more and more and the daily driving is taking its toll. I found this deal for a wrecked 2000 Audi A4 that I could just not pass up. It is really mostly bolt on...
