Car in a garage - leave a fan heater in car until the headliner material is warm to touch (flexi...

Yes - the pump is available at most aftermarket vw shops online - some even sell them with the tapped and plugged outlet which avoids you having to drill, tap and plug the case. a few pictures - hopefully this will give you an idea of whats involved - most of it was pretty straightforward - just nee...

Re: Full flow oil system

I fitted a plugged shadek 26mm oil pump, a gene berg pump cover with outlet and a CSP oil gallery inlet fitting - plumbing takes some patience and some light clearancing on the engine hanger to clear the fittings but it is all plumbed up nicely via a filter with thermostat and then into a large oil ...

The auto case has a different casting at lower flex plate end to allow spanner access to the flex plate bolts. Standard case 'could' be modified - carefully - particularly if its magnesium -

Re: Auto box failure

They are quite sensitive to oil level - read up online on how to check oil level with car running - half a litre of ATF...

Re: steel wheels

best to get the wheels first and then measure up if you want max tyres. i would say 4.5 on front and 5.5j on back - ideally with ET42 wheels. depending on what look you're after - a tried and tested would be 195/65/15 on back and 145/15 on front for classic stance - prob get fatter tyres on but best...

I had my discs and hubs re-drilled - most competent engineering companies will do this for you - fairly easily. If you take the M14 x 1.5 studs along with you they will also press fit them for you too. couple of pics of mine - you can also buy front discs in 5x130 pattern and the rear hubs put they ...
