My only advice........ get a factory heater core so you don't have to do the job twice. For now, it has the infamous 'heater-core-bypass' so I don't even have to do the job once ;) . It sucks though. I thought I left the days of driving w/o a heater behind with my bug. (Merged header = no heater bo...

Dang.... 12 hours "book" or 12 hours "actual"?

IIRC, heater core in a Fox with A/C 'books' @ 14 hours. Yippee.

FYI- Your rotors are ATE's "Premium One" model. (Formerly known as the "Power Disk".) I've been using them on all my dubs (MkII, MkIV, BX, & B5) since 97 and been very satisfied with them. The set on my BX (Fox) have over 200k miles and are finally coming due for replacement after 5 sets of pads. Ho...

Maybe it's the flat-ish black and textured look of the flares in that side view, but it makes me think of a Chevy Avalanche. That is wrong. There may be some potential if it was more than a photo-chop, but at first glance it looked like the offspring from the irresponsible mating of a MkII with an A...

I suppose a temp tag could be a possibility - but I will be spending this Saturday trying to isolate and eliminate the source of my high NOx reading. If I'm lucky, I'll even get it to pass on Saturday. On Sunday, I'm flying to Chicago for 5 days. The day after I get back, my wife is taking off for 3...

Spark Plug question...

Has anyone here tried the NGK BP6ET as a replacement for the Bosch W7DTC? If so, how did it compare and what were you running it in?

Thanks-

Is that a crack in the top of the lens of this one or just a weird light angle?

I'm interested in Fremont. (The 200mm application also fits the first generation Fox.)

Yeah, I should probably put it away as an antique. My neighbor gave it to me when I was getting pissed at a Selle Italia Turbo saddle. He said it was 14 years old then. I got it into condition with oil, heat, and a baseball bat - but that was, er, 21 or 22 years ago. Dang I'm getting old...
