Almost 6 and Still Feels Brand New

Post by JayRyan » Nov Sun 29, 2009 10:13 am

I did the day-long fall detail the other day; inside, outside, everything. Then I drive and I'm like Man, this car's really holding up well. Now I just pray I don't smack a deer or the deer smacks me or a car smacks me or...

Ah well, time to order a new timing belt and replace another bulb. My turbo should start failing sometime soon...right? right? :laughing:

Love your car and it will love you back :thumbsup:

I love bringing up old threads, lol. But if your turbo goes before mine I'll be surprised. My stock K03 is on it's second motor with 123,000 miles on her with only slight shaft play. When I had the turbo off I took a looksy at the exhaust side and even the fins look good.

And I'm not exactly driving like grandma either. haha

Well, actually decided to swap it out this spring. I have to do my TB anyway so while I'm in there...

Getting the turbo out frustrated the hell out of me. BUT, that's because the jackass who had the exhaust done on my car before I bought it has no idea what was going on... let's just say that something are welded that shouldn't be welded. :banghead:
