turbo water coolant plumbing?

 Er yes...... there is water cooling to these turbos.
 Not much action here to damn busy working and then being to lazy or sick of cars.

I have fitted all the hoses and hard ware to the turbo now and then removed it again and the head.
 the head is at the shop and it looks so good I think it will only need guide seals :)
 I do really want to hone it and re ring it tho. I think this can really bring back the best of a ageing motor. I will want to do the big end bearings to then but depends on price.
 I rang Simon at Giltraps and rings are NLA :P I'm sure I can get some after market tho, will leave that up to my engine guys to find.
 Hopefully this will bring the old 200 alive in the same way my golf has got me so happy.
 As said I have driven a K24 200 and it was so much better than standard.
 I will refit the modded ecu that dosen't cut out the fuel pump at 6psi boost! Rex modded it for me but it made my car pink unless I had mobil 98 and I use it where I cant always get that.

Head done, reface, strip, vac test, all new guide seals, cleaned and checked straight through the cam tunnel and hardness etc.
 $220 :) Im happy with that it looks mint.
 I have also got new rings for it. Expencive :P $450 but it will be worth it in the long run, its done 168thou and a new set of rings will restore good compression.
 I have stripped down the long block trying hard not to ruin any gaskets as I don't want to have to pay for anything more :P
 The big ends look fine, tho I will price some.
 loads of bits of steel to clean and paint, rocker covers sumps cam gaurds etc, i think i will bother too paint this engine all up and have it looking real nice.

Im really surprised any VAG engine requires rings at such an early age Jeremy, but good to see the old girl heading for another 168 thousand k's. Good tow vehicle ..

It ran fine but the bores were smooth and getting a slight glaze. A hone and new rings will see it into the ends of time ;D

Well got all the bits back except new head bolts on order.
 Cost me $940 to get the block, pistons etc all cleaned and honed and assembled. $450 of that was the cost of the rings :P
 It looks great and I fitted the oil pump and pick up and sump last night out in my man shed.
 I love doing nice clean work like this.

I'm not sure what the problem is... have you got a photobucket account Jem?

They are very handy for putting all your photos up on :)

I've been having the same problem when trying to post pics for the last few weeks.
I thought it was since I loaded Ubuntu, but others are having problems too.
I even signed up with a Photobucket account and did it that way, but with the same result.

Got the engine out of the 200, new one about to go in.
 Will sand all discs and pop all calipers apart and clean them and reasemble with good fluid.
 will get a new engine mount made from autoalighn.
 fit a better AC compressor and get it regassed.
 Hopefully I can suss out the reason why the ABS wont work as well. Would like to replace the wheel sensors but where do you get stuff like that :P I'd Love a new bomb as well.
 Its gona be good to get it all up and running sweet tho, it needed this.
 the clutch was getting all covered in oil but looks almost new and wasnt slipping at all, i will wash it down and get the flywheel refaced as i can see its only running on the outer edge! its a new sach clutch thats only done 5000kms or so.
 My exhaust gasket was all blown open as well.
 wish the photos would work.
 maaybe i go join photo bucket now.
