I found the perfect one for you today.My wife wants to move somewhere warm, I'll take it as well but we've got a fair amount anchoring us here at the moment. Someday though, we're gonna move to a sunny, warm state and have fun cars (she wants a 911 GT3). And someone will wonder WTF was going on at our house when they see the garage minus the toolboxes and accessories, because it doesn't make any sense without them.
Oh I really did. She turns wrenches, cooks and bakes, loves to try new foods, and likes the plaid in the GTI. She's an animal person too, and will occasionally play racing video games.
@GTI Jake not sure if you're aware of these or not, but I've heard a lot of good things about these on Garage Journal.
It would seem the HF press plates are known for occasionally exploding(?), and these were recommended as a far superior/safer alternative.
Super shitty about the DKM thing though. The email suggests that Competition Clutch, Vengeance Clutch, and DKM Clutch are all the same company/under the same umbrella, which is surprising because I thought that Competition Clutch had a pretty decent reputation.
What's your plan moving forward, as far as clutch solution?
The power coating on mine turned dark maroon after 2 track days. I wish I'd just painted.Heading home tonight from a long project here in Ohio. Looking forward to starting up the GTI tonight and taking her for a spin.
I have the Macan calipers to instal after I paint them. I have red G2 caliper paint I bought initially. Thought about powder coating them but no one will do it local. I’m going to take my time with the G2 and maybe even wet sand them after. I have no clue what I’m doing when it comes to paint but at least they’re calipers.
I have tomorrow to myself so my plan is to start on them. I don’t plan on stripping the black coating that comes on the Macan calipers off. I don’t want to disassemble so I will be masking them off well and taking my time.The power coating on mine turned dark maroon after 2 track days. I wish I'd just painted.
Was gonna do carbon cleaning today but its been cloudy and overcast all day 2016 with 51K; 99% of the time 92 octane used, IHX475/tuned for about a year. Used CRC intake valve cleaner about 30K. My drive intervals are short (less than 10 miles a day). Watched The Humble Mechanics intake manifold removal video like 10 times. Other members have done it (Daks, Acadia18/dtfd) and figure it should be relatively easy. No compressor as I live in a apartment building so was gonna use CRC intake valve cleaner and brake cleaner as the chemical agents. Maybe next week
I'm thinking about wet sanding the powder coating, then just painting them. I have some red G2 sitting where my intercooler used to sit.I have tomorrow to myself so my plan is to start on them.
