Started on the front suspension while I'm waiting on my trans ...
I was just going to freshen up the grease and the rubbery bits but I found a bit more debris than expected.
I thought the CV boot was just split but the innards were mush and the stabilizer link snapped when I looked it.
I bought new bigger brakes from GoWesty and rebuilt axles from Van Cafe.
I'll start bolting it back together today.

Transaxle showed up , installed decoupler and spray bombed the case because the pitting and corrosion were just too much to look at. I tried forever to get the motor and trans together and finally I reinstalled the clutch , the plastic alignment tool I have has a bit of slop, then it just slipped together with no effort at all.
Hopefully lift it into place next weekend. Very Happy

Did the wiring take you long to do ? What fuse panel did you add on ?

Road test = FAIL
About 2 blocks went through all the gears gently then a huge cloud of smoke!?
Checked the plugs and one is covered with oil.
At this point I hope it is something simple and obvious like a head gasket fail but I won't know till I tear it down. It idled in the shop nicely and the only codes I'm getting (OBD2) are for the fuel sensors that are in the subi tank.But maybe it didn't run long enough for a full diagnostic scan.
Also while underneath diagnosing I grabbed the header to roll myself out like I've been doing the last few weeks and now I'm missing my fingerprints on 3 fingers.
"Did the wiring take you long to do ? What fuse panel did you add on ?"

The subi harness/ECU was redone by Rocky Mountain Westy (~$600) and was pretty much plug and play , they gave me directions to re pin a couple of connectors and I had to solder 4 or five wires and crimp on a couple of connectors and that was it. They gave me printout of the subi wiring diagram aswell .
The subi ECU replaces the VW one and has a few relays hanging from it along with 3 fuse holders so there is no fuse panel add on , the VW fuse panel stays and functions as is. The entire harness took about 4 hrs to install , the starter took me 2 days to install. (I was warned about that one)
So right now its going to sit for a few days while I cry in my beer.

you won't get any codes for this and it won't be a wiring issue.....as far as head gasket there are only the passages for camshaft lubrication...did you use sohc gaskets and follow the SOOB sequential torque specs? My guess would be CHECK YOUR CRANKCASE VENTILATION/PCV and how you plumbed it as you may have a crankcase pressure issue pushing oil past the rings...otherwise valve stem seals. I also repair Rocky Mtns harnesses and built the deletes for the ECU. Look at how you vented everything first these motors are close tolerance but fairly bulletproof.If you ever change /pull an injector make sure the seals are in RIGHT...a seal leaking fuel into the cylinder will bent a rod RIGHT NOW just cranking

dropped valve guides .... apparently not that uncommon with a 2.5 ..... I have one guy checking on available heads and a mechanic checking with a machine shop to see if machining for oversized guides is an option. ..... it's just money....
