Pics of my slow progress

Well, Im almost out about 85% there, Just gotta drop the fron cross member and unbolt the bell housing, Sorry its been taking me soo long I did all this work on Saturday 26 since it was finally warmer out. Soon she will be out and then the fun starts.

Ohh and sorry about my garage its kinda messy and the floor is wet because of the rain and my garage just sucks, Anyway here are some pics















Anyway I know it looks like a mess, But everything will be cleaned sorted and inspected before reinstalled. The headers will be cleaned painted and wraped, The engine, well the engine is gonna get some "work done to her"

Looks alright to me, but I want to know about wraping your headers. I think some people love their cars a little too much! :-)

Be happy you have a garage, my parent's house is the only one in the entire typical suburb development without one...however we are also the only with a 100 foot driveway and recessed property. Working out in the cold, rain and snow is no stranger to me!

bjenkins- Header wrapping is when you wrap the header with a installating material.

IMHO, headers that are wrapped will have a short life. When I was racing my GTi, the header would almost dissolve under the wrap in two years. However.... with the way 944s' are becoming part cars left and right, I am sure you can pick a few extra sets. The under the hood temp on my GTi went down 20 F while driving, 40F at idle. I bet you could expect very good results on the 924S as well. Keep up the good work, my 24S is getting jealous...

Im hoping that the Bursch headers will last but who knows, mybe I wll go and get the header Jet coated. Does seem ike you did get good results in your GTi, I would love to get theses crazy under hood temps down a little just to help performance all around.

I knew what headder wrapping is, but header wraping brought to mind something completely different.
