      Considering you are lowered quite a bit, watch out for all road debris.

      When I took my '81 diesel on a 6000 mile road trip a few years back, there were more than a few times where there were huge...

      I have an '80 Rabbit pickup that is gas. Carbureted 1.8 that will peg the 85 MPH speedo and keep climbing until it runs out of steam in 4th gear. I was going to put a TDI in it, but since we are in...

      I typically only get thumbs up from everyone when I'm out in my truck... even the cops.

      Some of the best comments I've received while at stop lights or fuel stations:

      If you found a diesel specific 4 speed (GP code, hopefully) and all the linkage, the only 'implication' will be that you are missing a '4th' gear. A GP 4 speed is like having an FN 5 speed without a...

      The confusion lies in the unit conversion.

      0.039 inches = 0.99mm

      If you are at 0.022 inches (0.55mm), then you need to advance to somewhere in that 0.038 inches -> 0.040 inches range according...

      x2

      80 will be hard to sustain unless you have no wind and completely flat terrain. Even if you have a GP trans (which has a .70 4th), it's hard to get that little diesel to pull from 75+. I can't...

      If ANY part I purchased came in pieces when it should be assembled I would be calling the vendor that sold it to me and asking for another or a refund.

      What year Rabbit with what style dash are you running?

      200 whp on stock internals might also be pushing it. The diesel internals are tougher, but that's a lot of stress on an engine that had ~80 hp when new.

      I'm shooting for 180 whp with my 1Z M-TDI...

      Your turbo is very reliable, but you will be over fueling quite easy if you're not careful, especially at higher RPMs where the smaller K14 will run out of steam to push higher boost.

      That will...

      Cam belt = timing belt. Did you re-time the engine properly when you reassembled everything? Something is definitely wonky with that pump if you had to adjust the fuel screw so much to get the idle...

      No foam with diesel? How you manage that I have no idea.

      Want to ship them to me if you don't want them? :P

      It looks like they have 3 options. The adjustable thigh support, adjustable shoulder support and the 'netting' head rest. Very nice!

      That's a fantastic price for an entire exhaust, including down pipe. Plus, it will be light years ahead of the restrictive POS that is the MK1 factory TD down pipe / toilet bowl.
