looks good.. mind i suggest a cheap lil mod? the breather filter would look much cleaner if you did what i did.. just saying other than that looks sexyy
said mod:
::::::: Mod Name: SAI Breather filter
::::::: Why Worth It: Looks a lot nicer cleans up the bay a little
::::::: Cost: 10 bucks at pep boys and some electrical tape
::::::: Where to buy: PEP boys
::::::: Time required: 10-15min
::::::: Difficulty: Easy
::::::: DIY:
Step 1: remove covers and unbolt the sai harness thing from the intake manifold..
Step 2: unbolt the sai line from the middle bolt holding it to the bracket
Step 3: cut the sai with a box cutter where it is FLAT not where the hose is ribbed
Step 4: wrap electrical tape around the rubber part of the breather to give it "thickness"
Step 5: shove it in the sai hole .. if too loose wrap more tape.. if it wont go in take some tape off
Step 6: bolt the bracket back to the intake manifold and DONE

Re: (rapyoke)

yea im not sure about the hood thats just how it fits the bumper is on correctly but doesn't line up 100% bc of my fmic is so big piping holds it from lining up but im not sure about the hood fitment i think its because of how the grille makes it look it didnt look bad when i had the stock grille on. anyone know if the hood latch is adjustable cuz it looks like it should come down a little more

yea im gona work on getting that front fixed to line up i just havent had time yet with it. and timing belt and water pump took me 8 hours. and i had help. its pretty easy and strait forward. only problem on the hole project was the motor mount.. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2840728 is the thing i used to review. but step 16 is the one that blows because of the PITA motor mount that hangs in the way.... that one step took 4 attempts of taking it out and back in and 3 hours. besides that it was pretty easy and fun. just a tedious job. make sure all your **** is correct.
