    crank is cleaned and balanced. tfsi crank is forged and is used to stroke the engine to 2L.

    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 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:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/KIMISS-Interior-Rearview-Mirror-3B0857511G/dp/B07KK9443S/

    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.

    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.
