Let’s just go ahead and order crank, pistons, rods now and build that bitch for 600hp
Crank no need, rods yes, steel pistons yes.

Round 2 of degreasing this pig. Noticed in the light today that the oil drain back line is disconnected. Greaaaaaat, time to drain the oil out of it.

Who knew Jettas and Beetles had different accessory mounts? Motherfucker is occupying one of the motor mount holes. Not sure I can cut that section out without removing the whole bracket. Which supports the injection pump. Super awesome.

Good thing I took lots of pics, my memory is shit. Motor mount goes on top of the bracket.

Might get a piece of paper in there. If it was a steel pan I would let things sort themselves out. But with the cast pan it looks like I get to do some more shitty TIG welding.
