      Those boys look like fun. I miss our Rotty, she was a good dog (and as big as most males around here). Those waste gates are going to be loud when they open!!!

      The stock sized injectors will handle most N/A power levels, no need to go with bigger injectors, unless you are alo going with forced induction.

      it's not the sprocket, but the HG changing the geometry. It would move some the other way with a shaved head. Not sure if you want it advanced or retarded for better emissions. What do you need to...

      There is a spot on the front of the block just below HG between 3-4 cylinder that should have some letters/numbers stamped on it. You should see PL or 9A and some others. PL = 1.8L and 9A = 2.0L.

      Find a stock 1.8L block with the 10:1cr, a decent cam, header and exhaust. Headwork will enhance what ever you do, but will cost. Convert from CIS/Digi to a standalone like MS to gain tune-ability...

      All of my VW's have survived hundreds of thousands of miles each without "european spec" oils. I don't understand this need for "european spec" oils, if you change the oil regularly, like every 3-5K...
    11. Why would you put 0-40 oil into a 21yr old car?...

      Why would you put 0-40 oil into a 21yr old car? It wasn't designed to run with it. I'd run a 10-40 or a 15-40 in it year round.

      The 16V motor needs much less full advance when NA, not sure how the ABA Turbo tune works, but I do know the ABDI/II has no way to measure boost, just MAF, and boost and too much IGN advance will...

      It is the best viable and affordable option. I would add Knock-sense to it for some additional protection. It all depends upon how deep your pockets are for any other stand-alone solution, and I...

      I wouldn't waste my time with a generic scanner, either find someone with VAG-Com to scan it or buy one. The "p" codes are almost useless. And with a real scanner, you can scan more than just the...

      perform a leakdown test and see if it is valve(s) or rings. you could also squirt a litle oil in and see if the number goes up, that would indicate rings need some oil to seal.

      The only way I know to keep an OBDII car emissions compliant is to leave it running on the factory ecu. Which means those ideas you have are going to have to wait for another older car to come along....

      Or somebody replaced the original head with an OBDI head. If that is the case, the ports aren't even cast in it. And I'm not sure you could drill them. Might be easier to get a chip with it coded out.
