So over two days before christmas my car stopped dead in its tracks... After finally getting a police officer to call for a tow (both busters and Volkswagen Roadside let me down because of the snow) the car got towed up to clarkdale motors... As it was right before christmas, the car was not checked out until the monday after the holiday.
I get call from my service advisor telling me there is no compression on three cylinders and he needs permission to tear down the engine... The next day I get a call...
This had happened...

Consequently... the engine is DONE!!! Apparently the mechanism that would protect the engine in case of a timing belt break failed... Luckily it is under warranty so they ordered a new long block for me... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
And because the engine is out of the car... I have decided to order a few new parts :rockin:
Yesterday I headed down to the states to pick up the first two of my new goodies...

HOly.. your engine broke? how were you abusing it?

timing belt broke... and when that breaks nothing should technically happen... but in this case it did... and timing belts... catastrophic when they do fail...

Interference engine . . . . something will always go bad if the timing belt breaks.

Re: My First Teaser Thread!! (Oscar33)

So today I made my way back down to the good OL US of A to the fine city of Bellingham... To pick up another part at Roger Jobs Audi/VW/Porsche/Jeep?
... They had an R8 parked inside... Also an RS4 outside, a good selection of the new TT-S! :rockin:

The injectors from this car...


(mine still have the OEM part numbers on them

More to come!

No you sure can't... but now that the cat is out of the bag... we can all benefit

The "kmd injectors - or so they say" thread sure made for some entertaining reading

Well... had to go down to the USA today again... everyone seemed more pleasant... I wonder why?!

So I picked up the final pieces of the puzzle...


I figure go big or go home right?! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Todd was right of course... the ATP Turbo kit featuring a GT3071R :rockin:
Image uploading. Refresh page to view

=====
The GT3071R Kit includes:
Garrett Dual Ball Bearing GT3071R turbo
ATP Cast Turbo Manifold
Tial External Wastegate
V Band Downpipe with External Wastegate Recirculation Port
Stainless Oil Feed and Return Lines
Stainless Coolant Feed and Return Lines
Inlet Piping with PCV Port
Intake Option
Connection to work with factory Intercooler
Hardware kit consisting of nuts/bolts/gaskets needed for install
====
Of course dropped the kit off to Phil @ Clarkdale Volkswagen (Vancouver, Canada) for the build to begin... a few other goodies will be coming from a few local shops... (gauges etc) and software of course to get this done right!
Should be fun!
Also engine mounts are going to be ordered as well... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Should have a few build shots soon... LSD install should provide for some interesting pictures seeing the guts of a DSG!
Also to come the HPA DSG remap and when its available the clutchpack upgrade (which will allow the car to be tuned for more power!)

Wait? we have interference engines? for some reason i thought it was non

They will be interference motors because of 10.5 to 1 CR and overhead valve .
