I love it when that little brown truck poops out more parts.

What flares are those?

Rusty's standard.
Very flexible and just cover the tires like I wanted.
They come with some pretty wimpy littel rivets though.

Remote oil filter block so I get rid of that huge VW oil filter housing.

Nice. I spy with my little eye, an oil pressure sensor, inlet, outlet, and turbo oil line.

Did your shop make that? Looks like an expensive little beast milled out of a hunkc of aluminum.

And a second oil pressure port just in case.
This is a prototype and was expensive to make.
Price should be in the $150 range if we did a run of them.

Easy to adapt to an ALH? I don't know if the BEW housing is similar at all.

I imagine that if you did make a run you'd have a decent market. Not just people swapping! Working with bare media sucks *** and is just as expensive as a spin-on!

I am far from a TDI expert at this point but the gasket is the same for ALH, BEW and BHW so the adapter should work on all of them?

That's good to know. I had no idea! Yeah, makes sense then. I don't imagine they'd move the turbo oil line...

Here is the start of the passenger side motor mount.
Still needs gusseting on both block and frame side.
Stock Jeep starter slides right in.

I'm a true pack rat so chances are they will still be here long after I'm gone.
You never know what the next project will be and what you might need.
We took a whole B Train of scrap out of here two years ago, you know how many times I have wondered around looking for something I Know I had.
