    100K MP5 Club

    I just broke 100k miles on a 2002 mp5. Anyone else?

    Remember the Blues brothers movie when they pull up to the tax office in Chicago and the car comes apart into a hundred pieces?? well, I have duct tape ready.....

    I've got right at 117,000 on mine. 3 years ago my drive to work went from 1 hour to 5 minutes. That helped keep the milage a little lower.

    I need to redo the valve cover gasket which means I may as well change my belts which means I may as well change my timing belt (its due) which means I may as well take the head off and totally rebuild the top end polishing/porting the head which means I may as well do some light boring and put some pistons in there which means I may as well go with a different cam which means I may as well go turbo... Sounds like a good plan. I havenít completely installed my exhaust yet (on order) but things are a haapinin fast! Hehe my wife is very happy that I bought an "economical" car. (evil grin) oops..

    You can't rebuild the bottom end while it's still hooked to the tranny unless you drill some holes in the bellhousing to access 2 screws that hold the windage tray on that are only accessable with the transmission seperate from the motor.

    Thanks! It will probably be at least 3 more months before I seriously go into that. I'll try not to whine too much when I get there.
