      In a mkIV, def not, but that same motor in a mkI & mkII, fun any and all the time. In a mkIII, more work is needed. Our mkIII with a mild cam, a ported mkIII intake, header and tt exhaust does pretty...

      I would think the counter flow head would flow better, being that it's intake side has a better angle(steeper) for air entering the cylinder. The exhaust side seems to be identical on both. The cross...

      Same reservoir is correct. If you look at it, the line for the clutch comes off of the brake reservoir. And buy as many bottles as you think you need. Buy more and return what you don't open.

      Have to agree there, on an NA motor with a decent cam, by 7200 the power could be falling off pretty good. It might rev beyond that, but not much good will come of it.

      Coolant temp sender is next to head and in a continuous flow of water(normally), fan switch is in the radiator, only in hot water when thermostat allow water to flow to it.
