      Unless you plan on going forced induction, stick with OEM. If you were going FI, you could get larger injectors and a chip tune as well as an adjustable FPR. Another option for fuel pumps other than...

      That's super clean. :thumbup: Never seen that oil cap before. Did the original coil fail? Those ones usually last a lot longer than the one you replaced it with.

      Sometime within the last year I was coming back from Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania State Police must have just got new vehicles or had something else going on. Probably saw at least 50 unmarked...

      Did you replace the distributor or only the cap? Some distributors have lock pins so you can only insert it one way, which makes it harder to screw up the timing during install, but still possible if...

      Couple of popular options are all the way through the frame rail, which can make future wire troubleshooting a PITA, or run them along the top side of fender well.

      No screws or anything to remove. You can pull it right out by hand from outside of the car. Just don't lose the metal metal retaining ring if you plan on reinstalling. Have to squeeze it some to pull...

      I don't think it seals anything on the interior. They have a tendency to just collect a bunch of mud, which then collects water and rots the other side out. I left it uninstalled on the last two gas...

      I suppose if you have no idea what you're doing, but then it wouldn't make sense to start a project of that caliber to begin with. A full restoration could produce a shell with coatings and paint...

      Did the distributor you installed have lock pins? My 95 didn't and I could just turn it to adjust the timing. Would be easy to check ignition timing if you could connect through VCDS. You may want to...

      Why? Anyone spending the time on pro paint or a restore wouldn't be taping anything. Glass and everything would be removed and they'd be painting a bare shell.

      Someone who really wants something will always pay more and above book value. Always good to price high and see if there are any takers, but unless it's a diesel, these 20 year old cars really don't...

      Yes, so can installing the distributor while not keeping all the timing marks lined up. When you installed it, did you make sure the intermediate shaft didn't move or compensate the other timing...

      I've seen them in the classifieds in the past for ridiculous prices. I find good ones every now in yards for under $5. Even on good looking ones, the seals failed within a couple years anyway. I'd...

      I'd suspect ignition timing if everything else lines up and wiring checks out. More common for it to be off if distributor was ever replaced or removed and not reinstalled with all the timing marks...

      Usually it means the timing is off enough that the ECU can't auto-correct it so then it throws that code. Verify timing marks all align, check belt/tensioner condition, and plan on doing a timing...

      It's part of the engine harness. The ones I've fixed I just cut the bad end off and soldered/heat shrinked a good coil harness end on. Not sure if it'd damage that relay. I had two 99 Wolfsburg...
