Picked up some the parts today from INA for my G-lader rebuild, seals, bearing, Apex strips, lube.


Picked up the G-lader oil return line, banjo fittings, custom hose adapter from 8mm bolt to AN-2





Custom adapter will fit into where I've drilled through the block for the G-lader oil return

I purchased a cheap bench top sandblaster and some glass bead media. Not 100% where I want it but in time I'll get the parts looking almost new. Two halves of the G-lader:

I'm taking the buy back for my 2015 Passat TDI next week, needed some wheels, so got the Corrado a buddy :D Going to drive this until I get the Corrado on the road.
1998 GTI VR6 not perfect but nice solid car, two small rust spot one by the driver's mirror the other on the hood from rock chip, everything else is rust free. Done recently rotors and pads done, wheel bearings, ball joints, poly bushing on all but strut towers those are TT's, serpentine belt/tensioner, O2 sensor, new windshield, window regulator, motor mounts, water pump, timing chain. Everything electrical work with the exception of the cruise control. Needs fluids service, new wheels/tires, rear passenger side ABS sensor. Tranny is good no grinding but long throws so that will need attention, motor 242,000 kms but runs strong, came with ST Coilovers, 25mm sway bar. Interior is mint no tears. It was originally a BC (British Columbia) car so didn't see much snow, it's been well maintained/regular services.

Picked up the GTI today in Levis, Quebec, was a little anxious about driving a 19yrs old car that I haven't maintained 365 km's, did the pre trip check, tire pressure, oil, powered steering,coolant levels. Fuel it with 91 Octane and went for it, really pleased with the car, no issues on it's first trip. Some general fixes are required to pass the safety, wiper blades, horn doesn't work, CEL was told it was passenger rear ABS sensor, needs wheel alignment and new tires (that's covered). Nail down some rattles, as previously mentioned the long throw in the shifter got to go. Next couple days will be going through it making a parts list. Some body molding need attending to and some require replacement. Swing by body shop to see what can be done about the rust spots. I do like the VR6 exhaust note it is SWEET!

So got the wheels on the MK3 going to need to do some fine tuning to eliminate the rubbing on large bumps. :D But REALLY like the look it give the MK3. Had to use the spacer/wheel adapters 5 x100 - 5 x112.

Had to fix the horn in the GTI for upcoming safety it turn be being steering wheel clock spring contacts, was full of dirt and grime no contact was being made. Cleaned the contacts with contact cleaner tweaked the contact upper a bit. all works:




Next is getting ABS sensors to clear the warning light.

rought the GTI for a pre-safety today, they failed the wheels (which I was for warn when I booked the appointment) the Ontario Ministry of Transportation is cracking down on car with wheel poke and fender clearance (lowered). I've borrow a set of 15" wheels get by this fail, also need to replace outer tie rod end on passenger side, rear license plate light, wiper blades, rear rotor and pads and right front hose support bracket needs to be secured. All parts are ordered and some on there way.

Corrado update:

Got the pistons 4 clearance issue with oil squirter solved, oil pump, oil pan, water pump and cylinder head installed.



Just notice I've got the water pump pulley on backwards LOL  :hmmm:

Thanks, still interested in getting the tune since I've found out that Unitronics didn't take into account the SAI in their tune, so leaving some performance behind  :undecided:

integrated engineering is the only company that really knows the 2.5L to my knowledge. We've got a great tune on a base motor but no testing with that intake. One of our employees just bought an 07 rabbit so eventually we'll coax him into a manifold.

I believe that United Motorsport has it as well. Be cool if your co-worker would upgrade his. We were going to purchase the IE tune with the July weekend discount but there was a glitch in their web page that would give you the discount. Would gladly buy of you guys special if it's tune to our Canadian gas.
