    Pan wont sit flush and the whole pan is shifted towards the exhaust side as well. The baffle in the pan is to the left of the pump so all the clears, its somewhere near the pickup or pump itself I think

    Got my upper oil pan on last night along with the oil pump. Does anyone here have the iAbed baffled oil pan? I'm assuming I don't need the OEM baffle when using that, but even with it off I wasn't able to get the holes to line up, but with the pan on I can't really see what it's hitting on

    So I actually cleaned off the lower section after work. Used the small screw driver again to scrape out the big pieces of gasket from the screw holes, then the dremel to clean the rest up. I had to use a metal brush this time since the plastic wasnt cutting it, but I just went on the lowest...

    Wouldn't that just leave him with a stud in the crank shaft though that would also be pretty difficult to remove?

    Replace turbo price...?

    I guess you could try that, worst case you just have to replace the turbo anyways. I would just be careful on the first drive after doing it, if you bend it too much and it gets bound up and pins the wastegate shut you could have issues.

    What did you do to your MK6 today?

    This is the way, could probably post in any local fb groups if you dont have a welder and find someone to come do it for relatively cheap, if you don't have any friends with one that would take a 4-pack as payment. Also are you planning on going past stock power at any point? My stock clutch...

    I'm definitely not gonna be up at 800, but hopefully I'll be utilizing the pump pretty well with full e85. Curious to see what I can get out of this turbo when it's maxed out

    What did you do to your MK6 today?

    Reached out to YCW to get my suspension rebuild started and also got my Walbro 450lph lpfp in. Once I get the motor all buttoned up i'll be pulling my existing fuel basket and seeing if I can modify it to work with my new setup.

    Once we turn on the microchips in the vaccine and everyone becomes a bill gates slave, then the entire world will be the US, and they will be exclusive to the US. Alright time to pack up and move to Florida with the rest of my Sheep dog brethren. /zrickety
