      I can't tell if you're barking up the wrong tree or just not well informed on the process of building a performance motor ( assume that is what you mean by "putting out power" ). In any case you have...

      Not a whole lot to use to try and figure the source of the noise, but based on the work you did I would guess the followers are still not filled yet. The work you did requires the followers to be...

      FS. Throttle Body

      For sale is a complete throttle body from a Digifant II system. I am not sure what vehicle it came off , I believe a Golf II, but should work on most all engines with Digifant II I would think. The...

      I can't see why you would want to install a fuel cell. If the original tank is finished then it would not cost any more to replace it than it would cost to buy and fit a fuel cell. If you are making...

    7. I should have or should be able to get a wiring...

      I should have or should be able to get a wiring diagram for that engine. That is the easy sugar part of this response; the rest is not so sweet.

      I suggest you delete the idea of shipping that car...

      I know, I know, you set it all as it should be. Do yourself a favor and check it all again real good. It sounds like something is off, timing marks or ignition distributor or wrong gear or something....

      You might not be able to see or even feel with a finger any erosion, but I would bet there is a little. Remember you have super-hot gasses forcing through a tiny space so some erosion has to take...

      The two red circles look to be “burn through” areas between cylinders. Often this is a result of either the engine being overheated or the torque on the cylinder head was not correct. When the engine...

      Don't re-torque. I would bet the gasket set is kind of a "covers many years" item, I can see at least one seal you will not use, and the instruction sound to be for old watercooled 4 cylinder...

      Fuel getting to the pump or being pumped up to the engine is not the problem, if one does happen. Remember I said it is a fifty-fifty chance and then really only if you open the fuel system. The...

      I have to ask, what kind of fuel pressure tester are you using? If it is a simple one line model then no, you will see no change in the pressure. You have to use the type made for testing CIS...

      It's kind of a fifty-fifty shot on the bleeding (air I assume). Depending on what you open and how long it sits open it might need to have some air removed to start. If you can do the job without...

      A side from the parts getting harder to find now or costing a lot due to that if you do find them, I had always found all the CIS systems to be real good. I have long since converted all my current...

      Hurt? No, but you don't need to use any. Why would you apply sealant to something which does not need it? I would have to guess that if you were to use something it would most likely be silicone...

      More people should follow in your foot steps about being honest about their cars intended use. It could save a lot of money and heartburn over the years. There is a lot of performance increases to be...

      Please be sure to include some of the AFT pistons as I have not found any that show much.

      A lot, or all, depends on what you are building. Maybe better asked, what you are building the engine for? The guide does just that, it guides the valve while moving open/closed (up-down). The most...
