Its been a long time coming, but Iv finally started my build. I haven't ever worked on cars before at all. Most I have ever done is change my own oil. So its going to be an experience doing all this work. So here it is, my build.
Things I'm putting on the jetta.
TSW Nurburgring wheels
Drilled and slotted rotors
42DD 3" turbo back exhaust
Forge 007 Diverter Valve
Updated center console
Short ram Intake
Badgeless front grill
This is how it looked when I got it
I spent the weekend putting on my coilovers which was an experience to say the least, and this is what it looks like right now.
Here's a little coil over pron for you guys
Stayed tuned there is more to come.
So iv managed to take care of all the issues iv been having so I am actually ready for my build now.
I cleaned my maf which helped a bit with the cold start then replaced the coolant sensor which helped out with the cold start, but didn't fix it. Then I replaced the front 02 sensor which was bad, and that went ahead and fixed the cold start.
Old vs New. I replaced the dry rotted pvc breather hose, and now I officially don't have any CELs so Im hoping in a week maybe two I should be starting for real this time. Also I went ahead and popped on my new rotors which look fantastic sitting on my car if I do say so myself haha. Ill have to take a picture of them.
Got my FMIC on today. It went very well I was really happy with the way forge did their inter cooler. I didn't have to re route all the stuff that I would have had to do with the euro jet fmic. Although from what it looks like the euro jet one is bigger I think the forge is fine for the turbo.
Finally got into the good stuff. I got my exhaust on today, and it fit great, super easy. The turbo should be in Tuesday now, and Ill be pretty much done for the moment. Here is that wonderful 42dd exhaust.
