<x-flowed>I pulled the engine since I needed to replace the axle boots and check for mud wasp nests to find that there was a good sized one attached over the number one cylinder. In addition there was a paper wasp nest and a large pile of seeds, probably stashed there by a mouse.
I have run this engine and this is the material that remains, and from experience on my non-VW truck, I decided to pull the tin and clean it up. I had a mud wasp nest on my exhaust manifold on my truck and it just stayed there until I knocked it off.
I uploaded a couple pictures to thesamba showing this and one that shows the foam on top of the oil cooler. There was a large mud wasp nest above the number 4 cylinder that made it difficult to install the spark plug. Images are at:
