Fellow VAG Member's. What repair manual should I get? Haynes is only for 4000,5000,and the A4. I think most of the VAG Community kick's Bently Manual's, but are they worth the 130$? (DVD ROM) [editline]BDSLIJHFVDS[/editline] I herd firetruck's n crap at around 12:15 am me and my mom went to go see. Rainy wet road. A Chevy Silvarodo ended up flying threw the ditch threw a fence and into veins and trees. The truck is 100% Fubar. Not even a spot of the truck was untouched / dented. He some how survived he was pinned under the vehicle. Question now is HOW THE HELL TO YOU GET PINNED UNDER A VEHICLE!

Plus you'd have to get a new turbine wheel, and those aren't cheap. Going to guess the shaft is also bent so you'd plan on replacing that. Rebuild kit for a regular old Garrett T3 is ~60 bucks, plus those two pieces which are $$$... Would be easier to ebay a china turbo and run it til it blows, you'll have less in a brand new china turbo than you will have in rebuilding that obviously abused one. Did your header come in yet? Still interested in that.

Ah okay. I totally missed the post. Is that the cheap ebay one? Looks like a quality piece imo. [editline]18th February 2012[/editline] Also [img]http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/426309_347776501923929_100000747462026_1079481_1880136852_n.jpg[/img]

My father's neighborhood's gates are NOT trailer-friendly. [t]http://i.imgur.com/lPzgM.jpg[/t] Had to get out, go to the camera/intercom and wait for someone to open the gate again.

I don't know why but comanches are awesome.
So my truck has been making a weird rattling noise at idle, I kinda thought it was something loose in the exhaust, but lately I've started thinking it might be the transmission. It's started rattling/grinding under throttle too. Checked the dip stick when I got home, and it's well below the add a pint line. Ffffffffffffff
Ugh, I'm getting more and more anxious for later in the year. It's been close to a year now since I've driven my truck. For those that don't remember, in August I moved from Maine to North Carolina and had to leave my '79 Chevy behind at my grandfather's. He watches over it and starts it up every so often, he says the ol' girl starts right up every time. Feels like just yesterday that we were cruising down Walter Lee Road with Dirt Road Anthem on the radio. I managed to find a couple pics of it when we got it and after we started restoration.

If anyone wants to hear the back story on it, I can write it here again. It's a bit of a tear-jerker for me though.
IT LIVES! [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G00BgnAExqM[/media] Fucking hell now I have to stuff the harness back in, and deal with a small clatter issue... Hmm.
So my dad and brother were drinking, and i was sitting in the jeep So my brother comes up and is like i wanna drive it, and my dad says me first My dad then puts the transfer case in neutral and tells my brother to give it a shot. He then spends 15-20 minutes trying to get it to move, giving it gas and letting the clutch out, then every few minutes my dad would say Get out and let me try ya pussy puts transfer case in 2hi and then moves it forward and back, then puts it back into neutral when its my brothers turn. my god i laughed so hard.
WELL FUCK Looks like a main bearing failed. So now I've got a busted ass D16Z6 block with a P&P D16Y7 head sitting in my car, and a wiring harness full of issues. Sigh. I wish things would just WORK for once.
