    I am so confused.

    So, If I'm reading this right, you stuck a v6 in it, and it's now going back to a BAM?

    I just want to feel the air in my bouffant :glee:

    No no... in the end the red tape to have things “officialised” to just sell wasn’t worth my time and headache making appointments to get tests done on the emissions, brakes, the SRS system (basically one engineer telling me I’d need to crash the car to prove the SRS would work with the VR6 in it... wtf!!!) and other hurdles - it was quicker (clearly) for me to just change it all back for the reason of selling.

    Both the TT Roadster and the S3 ...

    Got the body/o2 side harness in this morning so now the 1.8t can swing back in. So much easier to fit it than the 3.2!

    Now where are my curlers???

    Had to change the fuel filter back over to the return system filter VS the returnless from the 3.2

    Your 3.2 was the later engine then with the cast crank if it had return less fuel system? Mines got a return :)

    Nah mine is a BML :)
    Definitely forged crank


    you wanna see a pic of the car it was from? it’s quite a sight to say the least!

    I used the mk5 rail because it came with injectors and was the most cost effective option at the time due to my kit missing them - plus it is FAT compared to the mk4’s rail. Along with the shallower/baffled mk5 sump.

    Been putting this job off for ages where my headlight had dropped.
    Looking inside the ball joint broke off the adjusting section leaving the headlight pointing directly down.

    heated up the light in The oven and pried it open

    Just need to wait till it’s dark to get on with adjusting.

    If that's a 3d printed part mine broke twice with them. In the end he had to order a new headlight and swap the parts over which worked no problem. Good luck

    So for completeness sake I’m going to post the one last pic I’ve taken of Noggie before moving him on.
    8FB7B400-70E3-4ACB-81EE-EE688994F519.jpeg

    Me and that blue chunky butt had a great time, as documented, and has now been moved on to a keen as a beam younger guy who I am sure will take good care of him.

    I told him to. Hahaha.
    Props to everyone who has pitched him over the years, you know who you are, and long love the 8L’s! :nogarors4:
