Awaiting my new rear main seal. Went to get the oil pan.on the other day and the rear main stripped. Ordered a new billet one from Issam. Got the billet coolant T and new set of VC bolts to add to the bling factor.

Once the rear main is in, i can start the remaining assembly and install. The weather took a dive here so its to cold to work outside in the garage now.

Did you get a B6 A4 1.8t rear main seal?

Improved design and much easier to source.

Nice work Kenny! Don't forget the steps for connecting the starter trigger to wrong post, panic about having a dead starter, then swapping to the correct post.

Was really close...went to load the tune in Vems today but noticed a small pool of coolant under the car. No worries...figures it was a clamp loose or something... my bad luck turned out to be the water pump Oring that was pinched. Spent all day ripping the front end off and pulling the pump to replace the 50 cent ORing.

And this is how she sits for now, going to see if it leaks over night and try and load the Tune tomorrow.

**UPDATE APR 10th**

The Car does start, which is good. The Tune I have is running a lot more rich then expected, so the car will Idle but not run well. Marc is working with me to get it all sorted out which is great. the car does have a small coolant leak off the nipple on the side of the block for the turbo coolant line, as I'm not using it ill have to figure out a better way of clamping it shut as my current method is not holding up.

other then that, the car starts well, and builds good oil pressure. no big big issues.

That's super cool that Marc is pitching in, you're in good hands.

Would be nice to go for a rip when I'm home on my next furlough, definitely be a kick in the ass (and motivating, to boot)!
