Hey, new guy here from Pittsburgh, PA. I'm normally trolling VWVortex forums and recently found a thread here from Calimori, it proved to be a huge help since I'm currently rebuilding the top end of my AWP engine and have been finding oil in my intercooler. So here I am, currently working on rebuilding my K03s turbo. Hoping to get my Jetta back on the road.

Thanks, he looks like a real evil genius Very Happy

Right now the car is pretty rough. Just a stock MK4 1.8T, Tornado Red. The clear is peeling off of the hood. But I got a 3" DP, 3" high flow cat, then it just clamps onto the stock exhaust, which I'm hoping to finish with some 2.5" stainless and a glasspack, maybe 2. I had to put in hardened "dogbone" inserts so my new DP would stop hitting the power steering and the underbody when accelerating or decelerating.

But I'll try to put up a DIY or something on re-assembling the turbo and putting an AWP head back together.

Yessir, on my right calf. I'm an American, but I love German engineering, and most other cars from "over-seas". I can't stand the domestic cars we have here.

Yeah, I got a little Chevy S10 to beat around while I have my car in the garage, and I might keep it to haul around my wife's dirtbike and other junk. But this tattoo is the beginning of my "mechanical" leg. I'm working on having other tattoo's work with it and go around my leg over time.

I never really thought about that... parts here for an old Chevy are crazy cheap, I might just do that! Very Happy
