Exciting! In case you didn't know, the flywheel only bolts up one way. On the end of the crankshaft this is indicated by a number stamped between two of the holes. These line up with the small extra hole on the flywheel located between the flywheel bolts. I did not know this and you won't realize until you have installed 7 of the 8 bolts (last bolt won't go in). Since I didn't know this I had to figure out by trial and error...kept rotating and installing the bolts until it worked haha a big pain since the DMFW is a heavy SOB to hold while installing bolts.

Also don't forget to install the intermediate plate before you bolt up the flywheel! It's very easy to forget.

When are you installing?
I do remember reading about that in your thread. Thanks for the reminder because yeah that would be a PITA. I'm surprised at how heavy it is!!!!

I made sure to buy the Victor sealant also. Is the sealant for around the billet flange part? I have not received the iABED RMS yet so I am not sure if it has some sort of instructions. I am going to print the VW RMS install sheet for reference.

This plate?

Install is the week of Feb 17th. Took the whole week off for my daughters bday and to do some stuff around the house and figured why not throw a clutch install in the mix ?. I have never done one but figured when things don't go as planned I will have a week to get it straight. I'm sure I won't have a tool or something at some point despite preparing for a month now.

If you haven't, watch the videos about the RMS and iAbed on this youtube channel. Also, I had a hell of the time pressing the seal into the metal casing of the iAbed. Just make sure you have something to press it with.

I have an APR catch can sitting in the garage waiting to be installed :(
I have an ECS can and I kind of wish I got an APR. No issues at all with the ECS can - the APR can just looks nicer lol
I have to drain it every 5-7 days since it's been hovering between 20-40F.

Awesome!! I had not seen that and it answered all my questions that I had. I do have a shop press and would like to get that pressed in ahead of time so I can just put her on. Thanks for the link.

I looked down at a light and caught this.
45k on the nose. Oh man that 70 degrees has got to be nice!!!

How. How. Did the first owner die and their car was locked in their garage and no one knew for 6 years? Are you that old lady who only drives it church on Sunday?

I bought mine from a couple of engineers. They bought it as a fun third vehicle but never had time to drive it. I’ve put 24500 miles on it since July 2018. I’m only commuting 3 days a week now. I used to do that many miles in a year.

Finished Podi boost gauge install... Spulen boost tap looks like it's not even there. Ran the hose along the ground and into the tray under the battery. Wiring I did under the dash isn't the cleanest but it works... Time to get a tune on this turd

32,800 mile 2013
