Its like an oil drain that connects to the puck thing on the valve cover. As far as I know its an aaz thing. The puck has 2 outlets, one for the intake and one to drain back to the block. Think its meant to act like a catch can but I'm not sure how effective it is.


These were also used on the VW1.6TD , however not the VW1.6 N/A , hense the block off plate ..  [thumbsup]
Not all the VW1.6TD had them either ...  ;)
The idea was to reduce base pressure under boost .
Also depending on the engines location , as some  were mounted nearly  horizontal , it was used as a full pcv ...  [thumbsup]



As for the colour ?  I would leave it natural,  or hit it with hammer bronze.. looks good with this blue set up ! ;D ;D

I did a bit more sandblasting on the weekend. I didn't get to any painting but will hopefully finish up most of it this weekend if the weather is nice. I started freeing all the wiring and cleaning up the engine bay in preparation for paint. I cut out the ammo can I had beside the brake booster to relocate the battery there. Right now the bay has been mostly de-greased but there is a huge mess or wiring I'm going to have to go over and fix. Its going to be interesting figuring out what I do and don't need and what I can remove from the original harness.

The new input shaft for my tranny came in the mail today as well, I'll hopefully get that back together after I've painted this housing this weekend.

I also made a run to pick a part and I grabbed an eps, as well as a 1.6td boost pin/spring. I grabbed the eps from a Nissan versa and its a bit different from the one in the how-to section. The wiring on the computer is a bit different as well as the mounting points. The model number I grabbed matches the one listed in the guide http://bbs.zuwharrie.com/content?topic=134451.0 so hopefully it works out.

Took me about 3 or 4 hours to modify the steering shaft and make some brackets for it. I used some scrap 1/8" steel I had laying around and I'm thinking it was a bit thin. The eps flexes a bit when I turn the steering wheel, I imagine it will be even worse when its hooked up and has power assist. I might try and add some gussets or just completely remake the mounts. I'm pretty horrible at welding lol, my welds on the shaft turned out ok for the most part but the mounts to the frame are pretty gnarly. There solid so I'm not worried about them breaking but definitely not something people should look at lol.

Isn't the EPS going to be in the way of the lower radiator hose,I love the idea of the EPS though

If you go how acme does it, it may but I route my hose a bit differently. I use a straight thermostat housing and then have a U and then bring it up by the water pump and over the steering box.

Just got an email from lror my basic lift kit, clutch and a few other goodies shipped today and should arrive some time next week. I really need some good weather this weekend so I can get the majority of the painting finished and hopefully get the engine back in the bay. If all goes well it should be back on the road mid May! Would be awesome if I can take it for a camping trip on my birthday May long weekend!
