    One thing to keep in mind is that ideally these can easily be removed (particularly the passenger side) because they...

    Not P1054, but I repaired mine as well, and if I recall correctly, I just carefully pried the case open, using a sharp blade and patience. I did the re-solder per this thread:...

    The engine alone is worth 4500, but obviously you need to deal with parting it out of you want to go that path. Is the front bumper intact? In any case, you probably have $10K in just the big...

    Looks good! Regarding the SAI solenoid, I also had nubcake tune it out, and I did the "loopback" and capped the tee where the "S" hose is attached. Worked fine, no codes.

    My wife's standard response is "JESUS CHRIST GREGG, KNOCK IT OFF!", usually followed by comments about how I still act like a teenager. I take these as a compliment. Another recent response from a...

    I don't believe lifter failure is a regular thing with these cars, although what you are describing sounds pretty mild. I have occasionally had a mild "tic" for a few minutes on start-up after...

    I'm still rocking the DRC on mine with the Hotchkis ARB's, and I like it a lot, but I know my days are numbered with that setup. I had the PSS9's on a B7 A4, and they were pretty stiff. Handled...

    On the wheel bearing thing, I suspect is makes a pretty big difference whether the engine is installed, or not. There is not much weight on the front when the engine/trans are out. Also, I always...

    I'm confused, how does rolling the car without the axles installed destroy the bearings? I'm quite sure I rolled mine around quite a bit during the my 6-speed swap, and I haven't had any issues with...

    Not really recent, but it's newest one I could find on my phone. Bonus points if you can figure out why these two cars are related!

    I used Loctite 518 because I read it was better for aluminum. I used the same CHRA's on mine and installed them myself. It was pretty straightforward, but I struggled quite a while disassembling...

    I don't think there are many people that have done a manifold upgrade without a lot of other changes at the same time, so it's probably going to be hard to get an objective answer. I suspect a lot...

    My understanding is the interval might be related to the bearings. Those belts should not wear significantly faster than other cars, but the guide rollers are stupidly small. You could probably run...

    The car looks really nice, and it shows a very high level of care and maintenance, which is critical for these cars. I think you are going to dinged on the timing belt. I know it's still within the...

    If anyone wants a spare transmission to keep on the shelf, I've got a good one that I pulled at 82K for my manual swap. It was actually working fine, but I am a 3-hour drive from AMD, so if someone...

    Mine were done around 82K miles while the motor was out for the trans swap, and they looked almost exactly like yours. A bit of wear, but not bad.

    When I did it, I'm pretty sure I just used blue RTV. I don't remember exactly why I chose that sealant, it's possible it came with the Blauparts kit that I used. I guess I don't understand how the...
