    im still around... a lot of shit has happened in the last forever....

    whats new with car... still not much but utter maintenance catch up..

    about 3 months ago i had to complete rebuild my front end on the mk4.... started with some how ripping the passenger side axle off at the transmission... i was able to get a buddy to put in on a lift and was able to take a look at every thing... my front end was basically holding on by the dub gods....so came the rebuild... i did the ECS Stage 3 Suspension Refresh along with the pass and driver side axle ...

    blew a turbo coolant hose last summer doing 90mph in 100+ heat which drained coolant, and cuz i was driving so heavy i guess in just evapped all thee oil..... looked down, temp was through the rough and the tin mans can was flashing... after several cuss words and pulling off the freeway and after pulling the valve cover and looking, no major damage....

    blew a tire doing 80 on the inside side wall... no damage to the body that god.. 4 new tires

    Aux Water Pump Froze....lead me to do Aux Pump, the main water pump went out, pulled inspection cover off and low and be hold the timing belt has never been changed... i had cracks so big you could put a quarter in the crack and had wiggle room...


    on the good news side of it though.... end of April my wife and i drove from the SF Bay Area to San Antonio TX 27hrs with no major issues other than my hoods T-Handle come off in my hands (easy fix) ..... but car did over 3k miles with no hesitation....

    but ya im back at it.... got a new job, im working for a VW Dealer in sales making a hrly wage + commission... everything commission is hopefully going into the car... new wheels and coils this summer hopefully....

    not really bad luck.... just full neglect on the previous owners part.... i thinking im finally got caught and starting to plan out my build... however there are no real builds out there on Jetta's for motorsport or canyon runner setups... its mostly stance boys.... i hate stance boys lol...

    So Random Question....

    is it possible, or has anyone know to have swapped a ECU from an MK1 Audi TT 1.8T into a MK4 Jetta?

    ive been looking at doing the remap thats popular in Euro ( i mainly want it for the transmission remap) but if i can get away with all the gains....

    I'm not sure about running it constantly but I do know of a guy that swapped a TT 1.8T into his Jetta to diagnose that his ECU was dead

    Verticalscope was hacked, so it forced everyone that uses verticalscope for the forums/websites to change their passwords.

    Ordered spacers from 42dd on June 24 and each week when i call them, they keep giving me the run around saying its ready and will be shipping today or the next day... Seems to be the same story each week, yet i still haven't received the email that it has shipped and now it's 3 days past the day they said it would ship again... I understand when you get backed up, but don't tell me some BS that it's ready and waiting to be shipped... They're very close to losing a customer, because i still need rear spacers and i will order my rear spacers from someone else.

    I bought wheels with decent tread since they were cheaper than buying new tires. Well the tires are 10mm wider and the offset is 5mm more than my Avus. lol. So my car has been sitting ever since.

    I understand they will be great quality spacers, but if your willing to wait, then it might be worth it. I'm just getting impatient and want to drive my car.

    LOL. Nothing special, but definitely better looking than my Avus wheels.

    Montreal II's I bought for $180. They were plastidipped black.



    Here's two wheels with the dip removed.



    And the reason why I am in need of spacers.

    Despite waiting about a month. I am really impressed with the work 42DD have put into these spacers. They seem to be very well made and not as heavy as i thought they would be.
    The real test will be later on today when I install these and go for a drive.
