    It's difficult. I've tried to do the same thing for a CCT swap before. I ended up just marking the timing chain with paint to make sure that they didn't skip a tooth on the sprocket. Also triple check 16 chain rollers between the cams. You'll be fine.

    Thanks. Pretty sure I did it last time just counting rollers and using white out. Saw old guys tip about using rubber on the side too to ensure chain can't move so will probably use that too just for precaution.

    You should be able to get a ratchet on the crank from below. If you can't see the crank TDC mark, you can remove the Cyl 1 spark plug and put a dowel down the hole. as you turn the crank, TDC is when the dowel is at the maximum height.

    Thanks. I'll give that a shot with the car up on ramps. Was just planning on using the mark behind the top timing belt cover.

    Has anyone come up with a way to get the Enfig install kit to have a similar chrome piece on the bottom as the stock radio does?

    I'm at a junkyard right now and found a B7 with all calipers and rotors intact. Is it a good upgrade to do if I have the stock B6 ultrasport setup? Should I pull both front and rear or just the fronts???

    I think it has the same size as yours. An S4 brake set would give you more of a benefit

    I would do both front and back if you can.

    Ever since I've owned the car, shifting has never been smooth. It's always a chore to shift smoothly, it either slams into gear or makes like a clunk kind of sound. Every now and then I can feel the pedals....not vibrate, but like kick back or pulse or something.

    I haven't looked to see if there's any kind of cover over the clutch/flywheel, but if there isn't, can I try to turn the flywheel back and forth or anything to see if the dual-mass portion has failed?

    I'm pretty certain it has, but I don't want to drop a grand on a jhm clutch setup if that won't fix the problem...

    It is a great budget upgrade.

    Nope, Ultrasport 1.8T has same brakes as a normal 1.8T, so 288mm front brakes.

    B7 front is 320mm.

    I am in the middle of the rear coolant flange. Is there an o-ring on the hose that goes straight down?

    I found the o-ring in the coolant line, and the other hard plastic was just below it on top of the transmission. Not sure if they are from a previous repair. The sensor has its o-ring and the one against the block is accounted for.
    Thanks

    After some searching around, it looks like these are in fact supposed to be in the quick connect hose that supplies the heater core. Is this an "easy" line to replace? By easy, I mean doable without removing the transmission kind of easy. I imagine it just loops up into the batter tray area and into the heater core hard line right?

    it's fairly simple to do.
    That is the correct line you are talking about with the clip connect fitting

    I thought about that, too. I really need to get under the car and check out all my mounts.

    The damage is done, though. I already ordered the lightweight flywheel and clutch from JHM, lol.

    I'm thinking of ordering the short shifter trio kit. What about the rod(s)?

    Should I spend another $150 on the rod or is it not necessary?

    Tranny is gonna be out for the clutch anyway, so all the shifter stuff will be nice and easy to replace.

    I just don't know if that rod will do much for shift feel.

    The hose goes right up to the heater core pipes against the firewall. Itís a little awkward in that area to work but fairly easy to replace. I went with an aftermarket hose the first time I changed it and ended up replacing a couple months later. Thereís a price jump on OEM but itís worth it do not have to do it twice.

    As said above, it's an upgrade to our B6 brakes. I swapped to B7 brakes all around and the difference is noticeable and I would certainly recommend it! Clean them up and get them powdercoated if you can! That's what I did: http://www.audizine.com/forum/showth...1#post12501498
