Re: 2001 New Beetle Busted Up

I wouldn't even use the valves that touched the pistons. They aren't designed to be slammed into a piston. It took a lot of force to make those indentations on them. Even if they seem perfectly straight, they might have micro cracks you won't be able to see. Few heat cycles down the road and the end...

Re: Missoula Events

I'll be at the one in Missoula. Just look for the ugly multi shade green Corrado with lots of boost.

Re: 2005.5 Jetta TDI 5 speed BRM

I'd check compression first before spending any more money and time on that tdi. There's a good chance it bent some rods from eating all that oil.

Awesome job cleaning that thing! Looks new! What did you use on the engine bay?
