      You'll need to do a bunch of fabrication, and stop asking ridiculous questions.

      Formulate a topic, search the web, search the web again, ask vortex.

      Otherwise we just sit here and say this guy...

      it should be fine, many folks loop the rack out and use the power rack as a manual rack.

      so you're thinking of the capability of the Ignition Control Module that is built into the ecu, moreso than the ecu's ability to control the coils.

      its a time, not a load.

      You charge coils with voltage not current right? There will be some negligible draw but it won't be a significant increase going from 2-3ms to 5ms dwell.

      Its the charging time of the coil element.

      you dont need to pull the front off to check oil pressure. so I am confused by that statement they gave you. sound like a way to charge you more moola.

      I can't find it at the moment, its not a like a vacuum check valve its built into the oil filter housing.

      There is a check valve in the oil filter/breather housing that could be failing.

      Have you considered a new sensor for the oil pressure system, it might just be tired at 250K?

      or just look up the dwell tables and compare them to stock vag dwell tables......

      that seems easier.

      you could get custom rods made with a 21mm bore and proper thickness bronze ( I think ) wear area in the rod.

      It may be possible to open them up 1mm also.

      I wouldn't worry about it. In theory the ignition modules for the airbags have a shelf life.

      I've never heard of anyone worrying about this. ever.

      Your statment is kind of open ended, I'd suggest some familiarization with forced induction over in the FI forum.

      What are your power goals?

      What is your budget?
