    Go for it. U can do it. Rule 1! Stay always calm. If u find yourself where u can kick the thing, always go back to rule 1, with that u will fix the R5 with flying color's. Hope one day ill be brave as u to tackle the V10 on my own.

    Intake manifold came off without much fuss. Captive bolts makes it a bit easier to keep track of bolts. I try to refit bolts and nuts into their respective places where possible

    I would love to see this developing as Dealers told me that one has to lower the chassis with some special equipment to get the engine out.Strongs Marius,this is ground breaking work.

    right, did some work today.

    some notes I appreciate about VW

    exhaust manifold studs are copper nuts and came off easily - they were also very easily accessible
    the clip design on coolant pipes and boost pipes make them a pleasure to install/remove

    Pictures

    parts rack - near as possible in chronological order


    intake manifold removed



    exhaust manifold removed



    exhaust port



    turbo exhaust inlet



    overview



    rear side of fan assembly - note the corner surprise



    jip. a dead rat - must have been a painful death. I kinda feel sorry for the bugger.



    front view of fans



    fan part numbers





    clearance for taking the engine out. should be more than enough



    primary catalytic converter condition after 250'000km



    secondary catalytic converter condition



    I was considering taking the cats out with the rebuild but they look almost new so will keep them as is.

    the amount of oil that came out the boost pipe that runs at the bottom of the radiator

    Nice work, all very tidy. What would that amount of oil in the boost pipe mean? Normal?

    Remember, i had low compression on one cylinder and a lot of blowby because of it so the CCV pulled a lot of oil into the boost pipes.

    Over time all engines will gather some oil in the pipes but mine was excessive.

    If you are bored over the weekend it's always a good idea to clean out the pipes and intercooler to restore the effectiveness of the boost side of the intake. Less oil = better heat exchange = cooler air = denser air = more performance and better economy.

    Looks like a easy dis-assembly. Keep the pics coming.

    Touch wood. So far so good. Some bolts were hard to come by but didn't struggle with any for more than 4-5 minutes.

    This is the first time by the looks of things that I'm working on an engine that hasn't been touched by someone else previously and it makes life a lot easier when bolts are not mismatched, overtorqued, crossthreaded or stripped.

    I have only used a strong arm on two exhaust downpipe bolts and the turbo/exhaust bolts (funny starpoint sockets) The rest was all done by a quality quarter inch socket set.

    If the rest goes as easy as this the engine may be out before xmas. (I only work after hours on it)

    Thnx, I'll add this to the list of things to be done as my mielage climbs. I would imagine that enough oil there can eventually cause a hydrolock situation.

    In extreme cases i suppose it could but part of my rebuild would be to include a drain nipple in that pipe and the intercooler.

    That way i can drain easily anytime and at need.....

    Disconnect pipe at turbo and intake, fill with cleaner, drain out, connect turbo side, give it a rev to blow out, leave couple days to dry out, reconnect intake pipe, clear low boost via vagcom and off I go.

    However hopefully after this built the rings will seal like new again and the intake will hardly see any oil buildup.
