3 worst activities is doing a turbo replacement with the engine in place, Bolt on the back of the alternster thst nobody replaces. Passenger side stock downpipe removal.and thats a pretty looking engine bay, but I have absolutely no desire to mess with TT z32's. They are a nightmare to get around especially in the engine bay.
The OEM configuration of the girdle/main caps is a limiting factor for the VG motor. I think people can safely make about 700hp before it gives way. I have no intentions of making that kind of power but there is an alternate solution provided by mazworx which converts the 2 bolt bottom end to a beefier 4 bolt bottom with billet hardware. Pretty cool piece of engineering.That girdle built into the main caps is amazing.
The car is fantastic, dig the fab work.
Hmmm could be ratting the pump around a little more than it's supposed to! I think some people underestimate the importance of good balance.Im almost wondering now if that non harmonic crank pulley had something to do with it. Only reason I cracked the pump open was because it was a low mileage oem pump.
