      To be honest, the last couple of weeks have thrown some things out of whack. I was laid off recently and had to get the job hunt underway.

      April Update

      Got to some more of the project work.
      Decided to just pull the motor so I could either rebuild/balance it and/or swap it with something else.
      As I neared the cleanup phase I started thinking...

      I think the PL suffers a pretty soft bottom end. IMO, it can be partly corrected with some CIS-E magic. I know the FK or 4K would make up for the loss of bottom but I want the 02a so I can support...

      I did another couple days of driving and am still not happy with the running.
      A/F is still lean at -10-15" Vacuum and it seems to hunt around, while idle is also richer than I want (~13:1)....

      I think I need to read up on what you have done, I could probably learn some stuff as well.

      Some ideas and plans being shuffled around.
      Been considering doing up the 8v but some recent events might allow more concentrated time I can apply to this project.
      So the question of the week is:...

      Is the rear mount the same as 8V and Corrado?
      Which one? Drivers Side or Passenger? I have a box of MKI and MKII mounts.

      Not a lot to report but bumping this along with the other project work.
      I have been doing some more research on P&P, and will likely be making a floating pressure (manometer) style bench very soon....

      Well, I just spend the better part of three hours trying to sort out and re-baseline things.
      My initial issues to resolve were rich Idle and occasional lean (15.2:1) at certain points of vacuum.

      Good Results and more R&D

      I've had to drive a lot more than usual this week, but overall I am happy with the Header work.
      Head temps are great, intake charge is ~65F due to intact wrap and the intake Phenolic spacer.

      Well,
      Today I got fed up enough with the VT series muffler to do something about it.
      I bought a Magnaflow 11226 SST Muffler. It fits better sizewise.
