Jason Thompson grew up working on farms, shoveling snow, wrenching on cars and snowmobiles, helping customers in various hardware departments, moving furniture, umpiring baseball games and creating a golf course in Southern Minnesota. He transferred to academics and completed his BA in Law & Society at Winona State University and the International University of Ulaanbaatar where he studied U.S.-Mongolian Foreign Relations 1860-1920.
Jason continued his language, history and teaching studies at Soonchunhyang University in the ROK and DPRK, ABC School in Dhaka, Bangladesh and Nepal, Macalester College in St. Paul, and Academy Prep in St. Petersberg, Florida. He then shifted gears back to Hennepin Technical College taking courses in diesel and hybrid technology.
From 2008-2012 Jason was a photojournalist for Truck Trend magazine and published more than 350 articles, conducted social media, and organized events.
In 2015 Jason completed a MA in journalism and media studies at UNLV and The Harry Reid Center for Environmental studies as a student assistant for Dr. Oliver Hemmers its director. He studied climate control, enhanced weathering and helped install the most powerful linear particle accelerator at any university in the United States.
Recently he attended a Positive Leadership course at the University for Peace in Costa Rica and wrote an article about it in The Costa Rica News.
Jason currently wants to turn the Las Vegas valley into a date, lemon, pomegranate, fig and urban farming paradise of pleasure. He installs gardens in backyards, church yards, corporate yards, prison yards, and public spaces.
I’m seeing more and more poor people with bandages on their arms.
They get $400/month maybe for plasma and blood.
The medical industry and the rich are literally sucking the blood of the poor. Also sucking the fetus up for stem cells, vaccine production and God knows what else. Armageddon?
Skates made from animal bones have been found throughout Scandinavia and Russia, including some that date back to around 3000 B.C.
Greg Bateson and the Illuminati have used sports as the Romans did with the bread and circuses plan. See Price’s work on Bateson’s OSS papers. Who took it one step futher…
The discovery of Machimosaurus rex in later rocks from the Cretaceous hints that if there was a mass extinction, it didn’t kill off life planetwide. “The new find adds to growing evidence that a lot of marine reptiles made it across the boundary and through the supposed extinction,” Brusatte says.
8And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure from the beginning: wherein he placed man whom he had formed. 9And the Lord God brought forth of the ground all manner of trees, fair to behold, and pleasant to eat of: the tree of life also in the midst of paradise: and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
10And a river went out the place of pleasure to water paradise, which from thence is divided into four heads. 11The name of the one is Phison: that is it which compasseth all the land of Hevilath, where gold groweth. 12And the gold of that land is very good: there is found bdellium, and the onyx stone. 13And the name of the second river is Gehon: the same is it that compasseth all the land of Ethiopia 14And the name of the third river is Tigris: the same passeth along by the Assyrians. And the fourth river is Euphrates.
As little as 6,000 years ago, the vast Sahara Desert was covered in grassland that received plenty of rainfall, but shifts in the world’s weather patterns abruptly transformed the vegetated region into some of the driest land on Earth. Now a researcher is trying to uncover the clues responsible for this enormous climate transformation — and the findings could lead to better rainfall predictions worldwide.
may be hard to visualize if you’ve been through drought-stricken southern California lately, but much of what’s now Los Angeles was once a teeming wetland. And a new landmark survey going back 8,000 years has found that human settlement in the region has ebbed and flowed with the levels of the sea and the waters of the Los Angeles River.
The fluid squished out the hydraulic Engine mount. 134,000 miles and maybe a rock.
This one is solid rubber I think.
I got an engine support bar from Harbor Freight.
The radio might be my electric drain.
Thanks Mr. Daimler for the turbo.
Every car without a turbo is missing something…they were invented in the 1880’s….
Some of the images are from Niflheim Media’s 2004 Passat B5.5 GLS 1.8L and some are from a 2002 Passat V8 and a 2002ish Passat 1.8L where you can see the intercooler bracket even though the bottom tab was bent by someone who got got its intercooler before me.
The slip fit o-ring connections are nice. I wonder how much pressure they can stand?
Make sure to put oil on the new surfaces before pushing them together and securing them with the spring c clip.
Putting another intercooler on the other side looks harder than expected but I found an awesome oil cooler from a 2002 I think 🤔I have the serial number Passat V8. It doesn’t have an intercooler but a remote oil filter, a liquid to liquid oil cooler, separate cooling system with small radiator. Must have an electric pump? This would be awesome for my new idea of a liquid to air intercooler plus extra oil capacity and thermal control.
I need help with this project…or lots of time.
The plastic intercooler is the first bumper and lowest point on a Passat.
The Thor skid plate would be nice. Also no off roading even though the 4 Motion might tempt you.
The bracket that holds the intercooler on is bolted and I think riveted on. If you could remove the bracket this job would be easy. That’s what I plan on doing eventually making the intercooler bracket bolt on.
I think they want you to leave the bracket and take out the headlight. There is no room above the intercooler so its two top round plastic tabs or pegs are able to go over the bracket and into the round holes. I bent it into place a little bit but it’s secure.
Our intercooler broke from a rock or old age? The bottom plastic mounting tab broke and after 3,000 RPM or with load you can hear the boost leak. This motor is almost turbo dependent.
Trying to find a video on it or installation instructions.
I just loosened the side bumper and it’s in there now it was pretty hard and the bracket is not quite right
I think there is room in the other side for another intercooler? That would be better than one big one in the middle?
The motor mount is leaking hydraulic fluid and now it’s vibrating. I need to replace it with a solid rubber one perhaps? I think they make them according to AutoZone website…
I was born in 1982 in Minnesota.
It would be hotter but the humidity is like 100 percent…
Giant clouds cool in summer warm in winter..
