  2. I was thinking of a catch can with a breather on it
  3. So, whilst perusing the engine bay, I noticed this is looking a little worse for wear, probably from the amount of times I swap my airbox for a cone filter and back again. Can I just bin it off and vent to atmosphere? Or do I need some sort of weird catch tank set up?

  11. Engine lift

    Just having a read of this because my back g/box mount is shot. Can I just replace this with a couple of pucks?
  12. OK, so my box feels like stirring porridge when it's in gear. Would just a pair of linkages sort this out, or are all Mk3's like this? (cable shift methinks) Also, would installing a quickshift get rid of this feeling, or would I compromise the box? I know some cars can chew boxes when fitting quick shifts. Finally, when I have the clutch pedal depressed and turn the wheel, I can kind of feel it through the pedal, like when parking. Anyone had this before??
  13. VW North West @ Tatton Park 4th August 2013

    Contacted the organisers and they said they were going to email you, lol. It's no biggie if we cant arrange something, I will ditch her on the car park.
  14. My OBD2 Mk3 VR6

    Looks lovely. I dont suppose you still have the other splitter and recaros?
  15. This. 8v is a smaller bore though
