Nah, it's not that bad, but I can hear the Vanos slightly ratte at idle, and then again at 3kish.

It didn't before, so something must have moved when we did the cams.

Hey sorry everyone. Kinda been MIA the past couple weeks. Been really busy.

But anyways.. I picked myself up a new daily driver. It's a 1983 MK1 VW Rabbit GTI.

It's on coilovers, cammed rebuilt engine, euro bumpers, and straight piped. Tons of parts replaced. 113k on body. It's in great condition for the year. I'll have pictures to come soon.

And while were on the topic of VDubs.. If you get a chance to look at a copy of this month's Performance VW. There's a small picture of my M3 in the Eurowerks section
