Hi Guys. Been a lurker for about 3 months and decided time to get one of these going. Own a VW Jetta mk3, 1800, 99% stock. I dont think i will be racing at all so i'm aiming for a fuel efficient, awesome looking car with a bit of performance under the hood. One day when i'm big, new engine and turbos bla bla but not now.

Posted some pics in the existing welcome thread, here's some more for now

This is where i am hoping to take my car

with an engine bay that looks like this, imagine the red as white

Let the journey begin. Got my car booked at Dynotech for Tuesday to check power etc etc and to chat to Izak about some stuff. I'll post the results when i ge them but trust me, dont hold you breath :oops: but we need a starting point dont we?

Till later,
Cheers.

Your Mk3's gearbox will take 2 litres of EP 75W90 GL4, like this:


Or use Castrol SMX or BOT 130 M gear oil, works very nicely indeed.
