      Your hybrids look good! I had a set of the SB mounts kicking around for a while and I thought of doing similar to you. Too many projects and I think I ended up tossing them.

      Wait.... Not only did you remove the IP to gain access to the GPs, but you decided to remove the throttle linkage and springs? I'm guessing you have the dual stack springs?

      Why would you think hydrolock? Did you suck water?

      Did it overheat? Pull the injectors and try rotating by hand.

      Not terrible, at all. I had a A4 claw style in my 83 Rabbit in the same location as yours.

      I couldn't imagine cutting into an early dash, to do that.

      For your engine, ARP bolts aren't really a necessity. Early blocks with the 11 mm bolt blocks were prone to cracking.

      No worries,. I contacted GAP recently and the bushings are made by Optimal. They've been on backorder for a while and they've been substituting other euro made bushings until they come back in.

      Any way you look at it, 3 cylinders are considerably lower than 1. At this point, Id recommend a leak down test and preferably pull the cam. Did you try and clean the intake ports on the head?

      Did this run prior to the plug mishap?

      If the car ran prior to cleaning the intake, the chance that the timing slipped is slim.

      Do a compression or leak down test.

      CIS will easily support your listed mods.

      It's easy to work on, once you understand how it works. The most important tool to logically work on CIS is an appropriate gauge set up.

      If you're reading that voltage at the factory gauge, disregard it. Stock wiring is inadequate and 30+ y/o.

      Put a voltmeter at the battery terminals and see what you're really getting.
