      Thanks for the info!

      Thanks for all the info!

      I bought a pair of Febi mounts and will do the window weld mod. There's plenty of time for them to dry before I need to install them.

      I'm running an ATA code Corrado G60 02A trans and am planning on running the cables out the firewall as opposed to hanging the box under the car, so shifter clearance should be OK.

    11. Raceland Header vs AEG Manifold and 16V downpipe

      I've been back and forth on this. I have a Raceland header for my ABA swapped 84 GTI, but the collector on it is soooooooooo tiny. I also have an AEG manifold and a Scirocco 16v downpipe. I know...

      Rubbin's racin' as they say. You could go off, hit a tire wall, go off, and so on. ;) I wouldnt hold the expectation that the car will survive 100% after your racing career is ended, even more so if...
