      If you look on JB Welds website, they say it's...

      I did find something that indicates they are from 45-46cc if anyone cares. No measurements were done by me.

      I've already jumped that hurdle. What little bushing that is in the small end of the Golf R 21mm rod is not worn out. That is what Mike [machinist] indicated.

      Speak softly, she does not know. Plus the POS has a higher priority.

      You're thinking about this wrong. It's the amount of correction to prevent a knock. Is it a lot? I would think so, but you are asking a lot more from what VW said was enough. Many individuals never...

      I suspect that is normal but I also think your using good gas [ie premium]. If you are using regular/mid grade, it's time to step up.

      You could have good compression but bad oil rings. Not much you can do to test them but remove the pistons. If the rings are seized to the piston, that will cause the rign not to do their job. Even...

      I'm still trying to get my wiring diagrams to this computer. Until I see what you are doing, it's hard to truly understand what you are doing.

      Sadly, I'm real busy keeping my clients on the road.

      Head gaskets are pretty good but people with air tools are not. With the abrasive round pads and a die grinder, it really causes issues with aluminum.
