      Hal, I can't speak with any authority here, but I'm pretty sure the BMC engines in the Mini and Sprite were not Coventry Climax engines.
      The BMC engine was indeed a crude POS. Cast iron block and...

      Remember that the BMW F1 turbo engine of the middle '80s used a stock 2002/320i engine block. It was estimated to produce ~1500 Hp running 4 bar boost, about 60 psi., for qualifying. Definitely over...

      DAMN! You guys are awfully thin skinned!
      Yeah, I loved my 76 and my 79, not to mention a few used Sciroccos (86 2.0 16V). And I still have my 84 8V turbo that I bought new that I really like driving...

      OK, guys and gals, I've still got this in the hopes that somebody will divert on the way home from Cincy and pick it up.

      But that's it's last hope!

      I am totally impressed!
      Especially after looking at the craters in my dash yesterday.
      I've got three spare dashes and none of them look this good!

      I used to own a B5 so I'm going from memory here, but the two rear rails are not equal distance from the center as they are on the Scirocco. So as a minimum the frame would need to be modified.

      Had some localized rust when I got it, but most of that's been fixed. The car had not been hit in the front .

      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.
