Do you make a good living ? Building an engine sounds like it would cost a lot of money. But all I can say is your lucky you know how to work on cars. I'm sure you have saved tons of money doing it on your own.

Lookin forward to seeing how it turns out.

jettaboy: i work at a machine shop im in the lab my official title is metrologest technician. basically what i do is inspect parts after they get machined and deburred. i check them for flatness in microns (micron = .001 mm) and for surface finish in microns.

and its not like a car machine shop we make parts for cars like roller bearings and various other parts our biggest contract is with a company called autocam which makes parts for cat (construction equipment). we also make piston rings for nascar engines.

i went to school for mechanics at universal technical institute and graduated with certifications in automotive and deisel. also while i was in school i obtained 6 ase (automotive service exellence) certifications. i need 3 more ase's to be master certified in the automotive feild.

and to top all that off i worked at a volkswagen dealer for 6 months before i got a dui and i quit b4 they found out n fired me.

so yea doin this build isnt too hard for me but it is very time consuming for the actual building of the motor ill prob send it out so i get some sort of warranty on it if anything were to go wrong with the engine.

Fukin: yea i was planning on doin diy's as i go along with the build so far on my list is the pcv delete diy, N249 delete diy, SAI delete diy, FPR diy,headliner , door card, and pillars diy, and for all the noobs out there ill do a quick DV diy.

ill prob also do a fmic diy when i get it ordered and installed.

Everyone else: FIND ME A AEB HEAD i need one badly considering the stock awp head has tiny little runners... i plan on redoing the whole valve train and cams too.


Thank you all of u who are following this thread it gives me alot of inspiration when i get stuck on something or gettin to the tough parts of the build.

uti is pretty good if u actually pay attention and study n what not. though there are alot of pure idiots that went there also that gives uti a bad name but its the people that actually apply themselves in the program that come out on top i was in the top 5 percentile for grades in my graduating class.

NEW UPDATE :

goin to jo ann fabrics to day to go and try and find a fabric that i like, also i have started taking my headliner off and some of the pillar peices.

sounds good..

u can always do a diy for ur headliner in a gti... ill throw it up on the diy..

besides.. 2 diy's for the same thing isnt always bad since people tend to do things differently.

plus one will be for a jetta the other for a gti.. even tho its basically the same idea.
