Did you get it balanced with the flywheel and front pulley on it too. As they can throw it out of balance. Also weigh your rods. Make them all the same

I hated going to Millbrook. They put them stickers over phone camera lol. And then you see all this new nice stuff and no one believes you and you can't show any one any thing either lol
It's cool there isn't it. If your a car guy that's pretty much heaven. The bank on the oval, what dreams are made of.

I replaced my Toledo's interior mirror and changed color, now I have a black one instead of stocks "cream". It is the same as the Leon, found it in Amazon if you need one:

Mine was somehow smoked and had some melted stuff around the borders, the previous owner lived in a very sunny and hot area thats probably the reason. I can take a couple of pics tomorrow if you guys are interested.

Did some cleaning on the leon.
Those S3 rims look great on the Leon.

I have a Toledo 20VT but my street is full of high-end SEAT, here's my latest pic (arrow points my ride):



A couple of Leon Cupra 290 too. Need to contact all those guys and create a whatsapp group or something LOL.

I've been looking about as I'm going to do the cam and can't tell if the cam cap and the other bolts are stretch bolts or not. Where do you buy them from as I've seen both on zedperformance. I've never done such a job but I'm thinking if I go balls deep and it goes balls up....a replacement block is not much cost.

Mine is losing oil, but not leaking, i've changed the oil fumes separator ( that's what we call it in bosnia ) and it lowered the oil losing, but it's still doing it. And quite a lot of smoke out of the exhaust. Mechanics say i should rebuild the engine, its a 1.6 16v so its pretty expensive. Anyone else has/had this problem?
