hey corey-

are you still running the blue pool hose intake mod?

i just found that write-up of yours on the old forums, and i'm seriously contemplating it.

I'm wondering how it's held up for more than a year (any problems with the pool hose, etc.)


THANKS! :wave3:

Turbo S door panel swap

So one of my wants is to have an all black interior, like the Vortex Blue New Beetles. This is the next best thing. I found a set of Turbo S door panels for sale on eBay. These were supposed to be on for our SVFest 2005 but I had a little trouble with the shipper. They finally arrived and I was able to do the install today. There was a few missing attachment items as well as the black grab handle covers (need to order) but everything is a direct fit so just a simple swap.

Overall I am very happy. The sills were a bit scuffed and black does show a hell of alot more than the gray! So I may be complete on my all black..

and no I'm not trying to make a Turbo S..

The front doors are easy compared to the rear panels. 3 Torx on the bottom and 2 phillips behind the grab handle cover.

Before:


After:


Driver side closed:


Passenger, both:


Compare:


Switch swap:


Along with the panels, I ordered a few other Turbo S parts.

Dead pedal:


Door locks:


Vase:


and last my chrome shift plate cover. I'm not a fan of 3M stuff but I've always loved the chrome plate in Passats etc.

I have always admired your nb-so clean looking-carefully planned out mods. Excellent pics ,and also you are excellent moderator.

I to have automatic trans and i am finding that when i make a performance mod the trans has a little difficult time adjusting. Hard off the line the at wants to stay in first gear little to long. I am using j valve.

I do have a vag -dont know if one can fine tune the at with vag or even if that would be advisable.

Thinking about going to ko4 but the added torque could be a little rough on at.

You Guys would not regret driving to Irving TX for the TNBRU. The quality of the NB's on display there is remarkable. And the Poker run on Sunday is a blast.
