I powder coated everything I could strip off!! dipstick tubes, every cover, bracket, mount, both sway bars, battery holder, fuse holder, oil pan, structural collar...
since gates was refunding me quite a bit for the failed tensioner I took opportunity to overhaul the transmission, I had a shift kit & a phantom grip LSD put in and overhauled the rest, diff too. since it was clean and my cats are relocated I put a shit ton of heat shielding on it and converted all lines to braded stainless AN6 lines.
high stall torque converter was added too, its a 2700/2800 stall.
the excessively oversized trans cooler and AN6 lines.
can see the orange for the fuse box holder and I did the cruise control holder too.
sorry none of the pullies were touched up.
im still babying it as I only have 1200 miles on the rebuild. but I can say the phantom grip LSD has let me do a respectable burn out with both tires.
phantom grip sponsored me and I got a discount on the LSD and in turn I will be updating my siggy photo with a phantom grip window banner.
the only other internal upgrade [I had left] this time is ARP rod bolts.
they are part number for a VW VR6 motor.
