Those hollow concrete blocks? I don't know why, always get nervous when putting something heavy on them
Omg no way. That would be very unsafe. These are stronger they weight a lot. It's not hollow. And to top it all off, I had the hardwood setting on top and bottom of the concrete for a stronger rest. No cracks in the wood or concrete.Those hollow concrete blocks? I don't know why, always get nervous when putting something heavy on them
Really, don't use those cheap hollow blocks. I work in construction. They can break open to easily with something sharp. They hold a good weight when they are used correctly.Those hollow concrete blocks? I don't know why, always get nervous when putting something heavy on them
The concrete blocks are solid, not hollow. It's best to understand proper procedures before going under a car. Just because you see something online, always be cautious of your actions when dealing with something heavier than you
You're correct. The 1.8T has a great aftermarket scene. Plenty of information and parts available online. I think the 1.9TDI, VR6 and 1.8T are the most modified VW engines, along with the EA888 platform.Hey everyone,
An update on the progress. I've ordered parts last Sunday night from UroTuning. It's from the states and I live in Canada. So I'm guessing it takes much longer. I do have to say, if you make an order, better not to put the order on hold to add to it. Just let it be. The cost of adding a bushings for the leveler for example was $15.00. The part only cost under $5. A good heads up too that. Just make a new order or buy from a different dealer. I was at the dealership. They were charging $8.
To add to this, I really am learning this whole build. I've not ever taken out a motor or transmission. This is a new study. I build houses.
I'm so grateful for all the help. And it was my fault for making mistakes in ordering parts. I had to order one more bushings. When I saw the bushings for left to right on all websites. I thought left and right was for the leveler not understanding it's for 2 different components. Know I have 2 bushings for both parts when they arrive.
If anyone is speaking with the guys at UroTuning. Make sure you have part numbers and a better description of what you need. I was placed on hold to speak with a different sales persons to find that they sent me to another person to talk too, until I got the point and hung up the phone. This happened many times over.
This is not the blame game. I really could care less. Yes it's been 2 months of not driving my car. Life goes on.
Thought do more homework with building and repairing and be very grateful of this website because it's been the best support! Thanks to vwvortex.com
The lesson I learned from all of these is to relax, be kind to the self. And have no expectations of when and how long it takes.
On the bright side. Lots of parts are fixed. And located the ac leak.
For now this car will be stock with a upgraded clutch. In the summer I may take things apart and maybe push a little more power out of it. I've been watching many videos, it seems like this 1.8t is actually a very impressive motor. Good job to the guys a VW for building a very good motor. So impressed.
There's forms of doing deletes to hoses and much more. I'm gonna learn lots.
It would be much nicer to have it looking cleaner.You're correct. The 1.8T has a great aftermarket scene. Plenty of information and parts available online. I think the 1.9TDI, VR6 and 1.8T are the most modified VW engines, along with the EA888 platform.
With the PCV system, you considered deleting it all and installing a catch can?
Nope. You can do PCV delete without affecting the EGR or SAI stuff.It would be much nicer to have it looking cleaner.
Will this effect emissions test? That's the only thing I am not wanting to mess with.
Lots of possibilities.
