Tell me about it! They're like craters. I constantly look as though I'm drunk because I'm swerving around them like a madman.

I'll join in here:

-Find my intake leak and fix it (yeah, with my luck, that means I am doing the CCV and the intake manifold gasket. Toss in the valley pan for good measure)
-find the cause of my airbag light and fix it (apparently it's some module or some such under the drivers' seat)
-find and fix that juddery vibration I am getting from my exhaust
-hood release cables
-drivers' seat cushion
-rust on inside of drivers' door (hello, POR-15)
-if I get to it, the right rear regulator
-a solid buffing
-a serious interior cleaning
-deal with my regret for not buying Bilsteins.

What'd you buy instead of Bilsteins?

Koni? I've heard good things about Konis.

I went with stock, which are by no means a bad choice, but I was hoping that they would be a smidge stiffer than they are.

The BavAuto guys dissuaded me because the Bilsteins (HDs) can raise the nose of the car a smidge if you have the sport package.

ahhh the To Do list

Here's the e30 version

-change oil/ filter
-reinstall stock flow matched injectors
-reinstall stock air box with K/N
-adjust valves
-find new 3.73 LSD diff and instal to replace whining 3.73 currently installed
-check for vacum leaks with propane (new trick I discovered on r3v)
-sand down and paint rockers with 3M rock gaurd
-remove and paint bumper surronds
-remove bumper and replace non functioning driver side turn signal
-remove and paint rear spoiler
-remove and paint front spoiler
-reinstall deck that PO shitily installed
-install new day time running lights in euro elipses
-install osrams sitting in my room in euro elipses
-buy new BFG's/ spacers and install enkei mesh that were stolen from Lee (ssshhh)
--buy from Adam and install new IE urethane rear subframe bushings
-wash/ clay bar/ wax e30 and pray paint comes out halfway decent
-replace cracked dash with non-cracked dash in storage
-install racing dynamics rear strut bar sitting in garage
-steam clean carpet
-remove carpet and por 15 floor
-leatherique seats and pray they turn out halfway decent


Future to do list
-find/ buy/ paint/ install new sunroof to replace rusted one
-find/ buy/ paint/ install new fenders to replace rusted ones
-save money for new suspension parts/ m30 parts
-realize I don't have any money for any of these things and conitnue to drive indestructable golf.

I know I am missing a huge list of projects. Eventually I will buy colour matched euro bumps and an alpina replica front spoiler. I also need to have the front subrame welded/ replace for non cracked one and I want an e36 rack but those will probably happen with the m30 swap b/c it will be 2000X easier. Plus I need to run a new hard line from rear brake T junction to the m/c because I don't really trust that crush washer.

How does one check for vacuum leaks with propane? I have this vision of rooting around under the hood with a barbecue tank.....

Gee, I'm not sure if my car needs anything. I might pony up and get the A/C fixed this summer. Otherwise it's been doing well in storage....I started it up over the weekend. Started right away too.

Oh, I think I need a tie rod on the left side but that might be it.

Using a small propane torch (the kind you'd solder copper pipe with) you crack the propane but don't ignite it. If the propane gets near a source of vacuum leak, the propane gets pulled into the intake and burned, which caused the revs to bump up.

There is the possibility of blowing yourself up.

Thinking of this engine as a possible swap

Film this if you do it! Set the camera on the tri-pod a couple of 100 feet away and zoom in on it, that way the camera won't melt incase you die.
