That's the plan. Jumper up the pump relay again and then see if I have voltage at the pump connector. If there's voltage and no pumping, she's dead, no?

I thought I was going to light the fires again last weekend, but when I chopped off the OEM flanges into the resonator, I found one to be 1 7/8 OD and the other to be much closer to 2". So my 1 7/8"...

Yes, you put one non-lock nut on the stud far enough down to get another one on right behind it. Then you hold the outer nut with a wrench and back the one closer to the head back off. It won't...

Our TCs are light. You can probably get a low mileage one on ebay for less than a grand, I would bet. Definitely not worth 3000 to put a new xfer case into nearly an E53 at this point.

I'll tell you this, I'd buy a BMW with 200 before I would keep a modern VAG product past 150.


Wish I had heated seats and the tow package. You will be happy with those.

Did any of you chase the manifold stud holes? I know they are 7mm and most go in no problem, but the ones that never had a stud before are a bit belligerent.
