      If you have a leaking cooler, oil can flow both ways. It's not prejudice.

      When the engine is off and the coolant pressure is high, the coolant flow one way. When the engine is running and the oil...

      I totally get that.

      I explain to my clients that I want to keep their car on the road for 200k. The odds of a car making it to that mileage are poor. The car looses its value and usually gets...

      I get the your issues about CIS but the resolution about a cheap carb swap is not going to be cheap or easy.

      You'll have to get an intake manifold, then the carb, air filter, throttle cable...

      I'm no electrical designer and I understand every year software/hardware get better.

      That said, I believe the engineers found the right type of noise that the sensor was picking up and used that...

      I questioned this thread when it started. Then I understood what you meant.

      Years ago I read something published, but I do not recall what it was. I believe the steps were 3 degrees until it...

      None of this surprises me. Today's oils are really good and those that have to change them earlier than the recommendation are usually throwing away their money.

      I stress to all my clients that...

      That link only mentions that you must use their spec oil. It lists oils that are 'Generally Available in North America'. It does not say that those are the only ones they recommend. Read the document...

      The same as for a manual. I'm assuming when you say BOV, you're implying it's for a turbocharged engine.

      The only real reason for a BOV is to reduce the shock loads when you lift on the throttle....

      At the oil filter housing. It's an older 1 sensor type.

      I did modify the oil circuit so there was additional oil to supply the turbo.

      Not that it matters, I pick up the oil pressure at the head on my 8V engine. So far so good. This picture shows a portion of the line along with the cooler lines I was making....

      There are a lot of 'stories' in the past, but +250whp with CIS basic from VW did not happen without a lot more fuel added. Fuel not coming from the basic CIS. VW's are known to be good to around...

      I had a MINI cylinder head rebuilt from my machinist, $1000. It's not cheap around here.

      I suspect that to properly rebuild an engine would be $1,500-$2,000 in parts and $1,000 in machine shop...

      To rebuild an engine is not cheap what so ever. The machining bill alone will total the car. It's understandable that people just throw in new wear parts and hope they can get the engine to run...

      There are two different syncro's in a 020 transmission [probably more than two different versions over the years]. One is moly coated and the other is not. They look real similar and they can be...

      Yeah, but what are you suppose to see? Nothing abnormal. If it was worn out, I suspect I would be able to see a wavy surface. This was 15 years ago I took it apart and basically gave up on trying to...

      I agree with the benefits of thinner oil but it's not for me. I'm too old to change. I used to run 20W50 and now I run 10W60. Synthetic of course.

      Seems to be better than most. Anything over 1 bar is good. Is that with a good gauge or the factory stock one? Seems to be that the factory ones are not that accurate but then again, they are all...

      You press in the tab on the side of the connector. Obviously when you have it out, it will all make sense.

      FYI, I do see the picture.

      I think it is foolish that a bearing company would be called ***. You would never get your name out because it gets blocked by bad software.
