Rebuilding a 2.0 TSI after timing failure at 173k *ON A BUDGET* (less than $1k spent) - And Then Balance Shafts 2 Years Later


The Fixer
@riceburner thanks for stopping by my thread, I've been admiring your car. Not many MKVs alive anymore.
I have not updated in awhile. Since last year I've replaced the center vents, 2k the headlights (amazing), replaced a radiator fan, ABS module replaced (recall), and fixed the HKS exhaust that was damaged by my friend. Haven't seen the oil low pressure light since I did the fan, so it seems that was temp related. Just replaced a few PCM relays for a random no start, but I think one was just loose.
Driving this thing everyday! Turned 190k today.
