  3. Golf V R32
    Hello everyone! Pretty new to this forum so pardon me if I’ve posted in the wrong thread! But I’ve been wondering, has anyone ever swapped a 2.5L 5 Cylinder engine in the Mk5 GTI? I’ve seen posts about this being done in the mk3,4,6 and 7s but have yet to find any info on the mk5. If there is a...
  4. CC
    I’m currently looking to get new wheels and tires on my 13’ cc sport. It’s running stock r17s on 245/40 tires but I really want to fill up the wheel well more just so I don’t have that crazy gap. I thought about lowering springs but since it’s a daily and suspension is soft as is I don’t want to...

    Bought my Jetta for $700 with a possible head problem Interior: 8/10. Needs a new headliner and sun visors (dirty & sagging) and a few other small things, but otherwise it's in great condition. Monsoon system with single din aftermarket unit wired in terribly. Exterior: 4/10 (right now). Needs...
  6. Golf II & Jetta II
    Hey All. I'm new to this forum and to GTI ownership. I picked up a gem of a GTI. 125k miles with almost no rust (only one bit below the rear driver side window). Car is original as far as I can tell. But the paint is terrible so it's in the process of getting stripped for body work and paint...
  7. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hi, I am new to this sub. I just picked myself up this rather rough 1.8T GTI for 1k today. The car is a 2003 with 94k miles, previous owner says it overheated and died last week. It is a manual trans at least. I have no experience with this platform. I did own a MK7 GTI prior to this, but It...
  8. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    TLDR: I'm learning to wrench while rebuilding a MK4 GLS. My overall goal is to showcase the car's ideal form. I'll be breaking down and rebuilding the suspension, swapping in a manual, rebuilding the engine, upgrading to a big turbo along with the appropriate intake and exhaust work, finding my...

  11. A4, S4 and RS4 (B5) Cars
    I'm considering starting a project with a B5 avant should the right car appear. That said, I am very flexible about the details of the car, as long as it is a wagon. I would prefer a running, stick shift 1.8T, Quattro car that is any color but silver, but this is not a requirement. Price and...

    As we continue our restoration and upgrades to the project mk2 (or as we call it in the office: the neverending story, ed), the number of period-correct mods that are available to us keeps getting smaller. But after a summer of spirited driving, we found something to add to the list. Despite...

    When we last left you, MOMO had officially broken ground on their 2015 SEMA project, installing a P3 Cars Vent-Mounted Boost Gauge.  It was just the first of many modifications, but arguably one of the most important due to the fact that in many ways the car will act as a testbed for quite a few...

    With summer officially over, and the more basic among us flocking to Starbucks and their local breweries for Pumpkin-infused everything, those of us in the aftermarket industry have turned our attention to SEMA.  This gathering of automotive excess in Las Vegas brings out the best, and sometimes...

    When we started our mk2 restoration, the decision was made to return the car to its original Cashmere White color simply because, as VW Vortex contributor Wes says, “it hides all manner of sins.” And its true—black and darker hues, while beautiful when clean, tend to show every last speck of...
