This weekend I relocated the battery from passenger side to driver side.
For now I just left the positive wire long (It's way to cold outside).
The engine bay cleaned up quite a bit.

The ground wire could just be reused.

Yesterday I finally swapped in my first M90 along with a diesel clutch. All worked out great and I'm really happy with the result.

How is shifting feel compared to an m46/m47?

The gears go in MUCH easier/smoother and the clutch feels really nice. I made my own short shifter for the M46 so I cant really compare the shift distances.

It definitely feels like a different car.

That's a real nice upgrade!
Did you use the stock flywheel combined with TDI clutch?

Going to swap my M46 for a late M90 (M90L2) next week.

Installed BTI's wasted spark kit yesterday.

I had some issues with it (hopefully they will be resolved today):

I did some testing because it would not start. After resoldering the wiring I finally got spark (I tested all plugs). The car still would not start. It started once but only for a few seconds. Checked all the wiring and voltages along with continuity.

Could the starting problems be caused by too much fuel in the cylinders from prior test starts? After it died on me after running a bit I gave up for the day and reconnected the dizzy. After all I had to go to work in 4 hours.

This weekend I found myself a 98' B230FT with 125.000 miles on it. It came with a AW71 but I already sold it the day I picked up the engine. I basically paid next to nothing for it.

It will get a all new seals, piston rings and a good paint job and cleaning.

Very nice find on the '98 Redblock..... you should have a proper "stage zero" with new rings and all sealings. What camshaft will you be running in the 8V?

Do yourself a favour and throw new crankshaft and rodbearings in there unless they look perfectly fine (they wont).
Cost around 100€.


Regards,
Dennis
