      I have a new #9 at home (earmarked for my car, sorry!) but let me see if I can round up a part number off of it or off an invoice.

      I'm not sure the part numbers will do you any good since those parts are clearly not available from VW anymore.
      It's probably junk yard time or look for people parting out.

      Obviously if you've bolted the inner joints in place they are correct. if the outer diameter of the outer joint is the same on old and new you should be good. Hubs splines didn't change over the life...

      I've had more than one water pump that needed the pulley to be shimmed to line up with the other pulleys. So that's something to look at.

      Well, I don't know about marriage but I am pretty impressed with all you have done considering you say you don't have any experience with any of this.

      8V adjustable cable or 16V self-adjusting cable????

      You're right. My info was for the 8V. Didn't stop to think the 16V was a totally different setup. :facepalm:

      Some of the fuel pump relays have a built in rev limiter. Don't know which ones or if this ever applied to the 16V's but several years ago I swapped relays, for some reason, and that capped the revs...

      Where'd the diesel come from? Does the car currently have a diesel? Was a diesel previously mentioned? Oh, I see, you're just trying to one up Sciroccohal. Waste of time.

      You're confusing MK with A.
      All Sciroccos are A1 chassis. 82 and later Sciroccos are "MK2", earlier are "MK1" to differentiate between the different body styles even though they are the same A1...

      I'm sure that -camber didn't mean "stroke" in the sentence above. Both the 9A and ABF have a 92.8mm stroke (they're both 1984cc). The 9A has 144mm rods coupled with a 220mm tall block whereas the ABF...

      first off the main question is: is the displayed speed proportional to the actual speed?
      e.g. displayed 100, actual 90 and displayed 50, actual 45.
      Or is the displayed speed off the same amount...

      I have Megasquirt on my Scirocco only because it's got a turbo.
      I'm voting against it for this car.
      Megasquirt is hardly plug and play. Any changes in engine configuration require retuning.
      CIS is...

      You have to love a guy that starts a project buying the wheels and tires he want for it and then builds the rest of the car to suit!!:D

      Well maybe not literally, but close enough.

      About that...

      I think this entire thread is awesome! Not exactly sure why all your Sciroccos are RED though. Left over paint?? Not a concern though, if you like it that's all that matters.

      I am most curious to...

      I noticed you installed a 16V rear axle complete with anti-sway bar, but I don't see a front bar.
      I believe your handling is going to be badly unbalanced without a front bar. It's going to be really...

      With a turbo a stock 16V clutch isn't going to cut it.
      I have a 2.0 turbo and was told a Sachs sport clutch would be a good street clutch for it. It wasn't! It slipped easily.

      What's going on here?
      The weather is warming up, work has to be getting done, and this thread has dropped to the second page?
      What's up, what's up, what's up?????:D

      They went from two progressive plates of approximately the same area to one plate. An obvious cost savings deleting one plate, shaft, screws and associated linkage for no performance loss. They just...
