    I was able / willing to go out and beat on the ole effing Jetta tonight got a bit done still working on it just had to rest the hands from all the little things but was able to button the motor up and back on the motor mount which is 10x easier with the comealong tightened the timing belt got all the sheilds back on now all that's left is the injection line and the intercooler lines prime the system and fire her up and set the timing but while under the Jetta I was looking aroun nd to kinda check on everything and noticed a bunch of bushings that are all crapped out an need replaced also both CV joints where they mount to the trans are loose and a few hoses need replaced so it's the effing Jetta that keeps taking but hopefully I can get it done tonight IMG_20190119_212855.jpg IMG_20190119_212918.jpg

    Alright all last night I got my final part and blead the fuel system and it fired up like a champ and runs so smooth even before I set the pump timing now all that's left is to change the oil an put it back in service also I need to change the name I don think the effing Jetta is a fitting name any more as I'm pretty happy with the way it was running last night even before I set the timing so thank you Wes for the quality pump

    Well last night took the Jetta out for a spin with the vcds Hooked up and everything is spot on for specs and boy does it move :peeloutthe roads were a little snowy but it pulls pretty hard through all the gears also it pulls all the way to defuel it was dark so I couldn't see if it was smoking or not also it governs a little higher than the stock pump but I don't mind also I filled it up and going to check fuel mileage I bet it a bit better I'm very please an so is the wife I'll get a video uploaded asap

    Those ALH engines matched with a five speed are untouchable when it comes to efficiency. It’s a shame they were EPA’ed out of existence.
