      Or do both... Let CIS handle the primary fueling. Hide the MS. Let MS handle spark and fuel added. Megasquirt can be used for Spark only. It is super easy. Long ago there was much talk and...

      Thanks guys! I think finding a physical catalog might be in order for the way I need to look up parts. What I am finding online with that link (i.e. searching google), doesn't tell me anything.

    7. Internal Engine Dimesnions and Specs needed...

      It has been a while, and I am uncertain what internals are inside my "frankenmotor"... Somewhere on the internet was a chart with rod lengths, journal diameters, and all sorts of goodies one needs...

      Thanks for the input guys!!! I know there are plenty that have gotten away with just the 3 bolts, not sure why I can't... I am running the vr6 120amp alternator, and it is needed too. So I am...
    9. Rabbit serpentine conversion woes, breaking bolts...

      So help guys! Google mostly points me back here, to old and outdated threads and none of them seem to deliver the goods I need.

      The problem? Since I built her 5, maybe 6 yrs ago, I have broken...

      Yeah they wanked it pretty badly.... As mentioned early on, the car had been meticulously maintained by Volkswagen up until @ 115k. I got it around 120k. In that 5k timeframe, a local used car...

      Haha thats what I am screaming! And I found MORE too... The injectors they did replace? Apparently they went in on two occasions to do so. Two of them pulled out leaving the air shroud part in...

      Well I gots big hands... So the front end came off. :D But hey I only had to remove the bumper cover, headlights, bumper, and then unbolt the core support. That let me pull the radiator assembly...

      Hummmm so staring into my mind numbing engine bay... with some creativity, I think I can get that bolt tightened up without pulling the whole front end off. Unfortunately, that bolt being loose...

      True, but I did the normal check with spraying starting fluid and had no change. Still I am suspicious enough of that to be pulling the front off far enough to get to it and at the very least...
    15. '01 Jetta VR6 "stumbling" and odd information from VW

      So this one has been puzzling me for a while. I get a CEL for "intermittent misfires" and "misfire on cylinder 6" so of course she got all new plugs, wires, and coil pack. But, problem persists. ...

      The inside shaft can be shortened about 1/16 to 1/8". It goes through the CV and there is a clip. Most of the axle after the clip can be ground off. The inner cv seems to be the one that breaks on...
