      Just spotted a typo here ^ sorry. The AHU and 1Z are 90hp (wastegate turbo). The Euro AFN is the 110 version, with different injectors, pump and variable nozzle turbo. The 90s can be very easily...

      In a mk1 I'd go for the earlier style TDI from the mk3 as the basic architecture is identical to your 1.6 - water pump & plumbing, engine mount fixings, etc. which will make the swap a lot easier....

      Run far, far away from the automatic. When you've got very far away, run away some more!

      Yeah definitely a Weber. Looks very much like the 32/34 DMTR or DMTL fitted to mk2s as an aftermarket replacement for the dismal Pierburgs, although those had mechanical secondaries whereas that one...

      Its been done by grafting the entire B5 front end on, to a Corrado in this case:

      No, they're not supposed to always be on. Down on the switch is everything off, first position is sidelights, second position is dipped headlights. Pulling the indicator stalk will always flash the...

      I'm running 235 45 17 on 8x17 ET30, no rubbing at all. Not sure how tight they are to the upright tbh, but not so much I was concerned when I put them on. 225 50 is only 1/4" taller (radius) so ought...

      I see what you mean now. Lots more stuff between the head and the flange compared to the VE engines.

      Turns out we didn't get the AEB in the facelift cars in Europe - it stopped in 98/99. However, we did get it in the Passat, and that uses the same flat connectors as the facelift A4 so it should...

      I can get you the wiring diagrams for pre- and post- facelift if that would help? You'd need to go through them and identify each plug one at a time - I usually make a spreadsheet to compare the two...

      You'll have to bleed the whole system. A pressure bleeder from the reservoir or vacuum bleeder from the calipers is the best way as that will push / pull the fluid through the ABS unit at the same...

      Funnily enough I discovered this about 2 hours after my earlier post! I was stripping a 2000 TQS parts car and found canbus wiring between the ECU and cluster so I stand corrected. Everything else in...

      I believe the facelift B5 S4s had canbus, but I've never seen an A4 with it. Certainly Euro B5 A4s never had it, although 2000> B5 Passats got it, but then they're much closer to the C5 than the B5...

      Can't say I've ever seen a flange setup on the outer joint in anything Golf-based. The flange wouldn't fit in the spindle in place of the CV joint for a start, as the CV is quite recessed. That may...

      Mk1 shafts are probably the shortest you'll find in that configuration, but if you want to convert to bolted flanges at both ends the Porsche 924 may be worth investigating:
