      I adjusted the timing. There's an irregular hiccup when the engine is cruising. The timing really didn't help, but the timing is better anyhow.

      I saw a jeep cut across three lanes of traffic to get to an exit. Must have been going in excess of 70mph by how fast he passed me minutes earlier. I was fully expecting the worst.

      Longitudinal built the exhaust system on my fox wagon. He knows his stuff. Sounds like a good plan! The fox, and it's quirks grow on you. I've had mine for 12 years and it's still a blast to drive. ...

      I filled the tank today. With mostly in town driving I'm getting 27 mpg. Not bad.
      I'm bringing the wagon to an autox next Sat. Looking forward to running it with the summer times and adjustable...

      I hope others with experience will chime in, but I know for sure the stock head will bolt to the ABA. There might be an increase in compression too. There was a user here who put the entire ABA in...

      Before I learned to drive a manual car, most of my family drove a stick. My grandmother had the pontiac version of the Chevy Vega, and my parents had a TR6 and an MGB.

      Might be a good time for an ABA 2.0 swap. When mine starts to go......I've got some parts stashed to go 2.0.

      I'm working on a alternative to old, broken intake boots.
      Best so far is a passat 16v rubber boot ( connects to TB) and an early Saab CIS injection intake boot.
