    1. Suggest me a transmission for my mk1!

      I have a 1980 Mk1 scirocco. It has a factory 1.6L 8V. I am building up said 8V with the help of some fancy pistons and a heron head. It will be normally aspirated and will produce somewhere...

      I had this exact symptom and it was an overheating pertronix ignition module. I guess my distributor is poorly grounded or something. Went back to points and the issue went away (along with the...

      Holy! That's bad. Mine only had a couple of little flakes in there. I'm guessing your fuel filler pipe is disintegrating and filling your tank with rust.

      When you pulled the filter out, a bunch...

      I'm slowly building up a 1.6, because it's what came in the car, and I just feel that it belongs there. One day it will become very difficult to find a mk1 with its original engine.

      Here's what...

      I kind of like the throttle blip thing.

      During harder cold starts it reduces the load on the engine. After it warms up a bit I can give it a blip and the rpm drops a couple hundred rpm as it...

      Thanks for this input! For a second I could have sworn my question was "let's discuss drums vs discs", like the 200 other threads on this topic.

      Any idea on what carriers I should use?

      My issue is that my OEM gas cap is rusted to ****, rust drips out of it into the tank and down the side of the car. It is a locking cap, so I imagine the lock tumbler is all rusted out.

      I found...

      yes, I understand there is a safe failure mode that I will lose by plugging the ports. But thanks for bringing it up, it's a valid concern.

      I pulled the trigger on the Wilwood proportioning valve. It solves the brake light switch issue nicely and gives me adjustability for $100... no brainer. It's smaller than I thought, I'm going to...

      Thanks, I did order new hard lines and fittings, as right now my lines and MC have grown into a single part. There is no way any of it is coming apart nicely.
