225 TT Vert

Well it’s back on the road, with no check engine lights. Even with the secondary air deleted. [emoji51]. Anyone wanna buy it.

225 TT Vert

They had a little damage but nothing serious. The cylinder walls surprisingly had nice looking cross hatching. Hope to have it on the road this weekend.

225 TT Vert

It took me a day and a half just to get the 3 turbo/manifold bolts out. It definitely had bent valves. 12 of the 20 were bent. 1 intake per cylinder and all the exhaust valves. Other than that it’s mostly been a smooth swap. I did go with the aluminum thermostat housing and coolant flange. Should ho...

Re: 225 TT Vert

Well scoped the cylinders this morning. Definitely has bent valves. The good news is I found a super clean remanufactured head with super low miles for $150. Hopefully next weekend it’ll be running. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210221/592c70de4974733b48b0adf8fb2bd9d9.jpg https://uploads.tapata...

Re: 225 TT Vert

I’ve been a tad busy lately, so I haven’t touched it since the compression test. I don’t think I’ll do a VR swap. I’d have to source way to much in parts. The 1.8t has more potential for power anyway. But for now I’m on the fence on whether I should build it or sell it. I’ll be on the road to San Di...

Re: 225 TT Vert

Well here’s the update. I pulled the valve cover and intake cam. Then installed the new cam chain tensioner. Cleaned the valve cover and installed it. Pulled the plugs for a compression test. Short story is that all 4 cylinders have 0 compression. My assumption is that when the coolant pump failed i...

Re: 225 TT Vert

It seemed to be the same size. It must be the angle that makes it look a little off.

225 TT Vert

So picked up a new project a few weeks ago. 01 Audi TT 225 Quattro 6 speed manual. I was told the owner and his some were going to replace the water pump and never finished the job. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210104/3818e4005dc6882ac108de6cb46ba413.jpg https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202101...
