      My thought was to put a spring on the sleeve, rather than the cable. Like on some Saab or Volvo throttle cables.

      You may need to cut the end of the brake rod off the mk3 and weld one on from the mk1. If you have a threaded end, you might be able to just cut new threads on the mk3 rod. I had to do the cut and...

      I acquired a stash of off-road race buggy engine parts. I think there's enough there to build one good engine. The head I plan on using is a Bertils 8v crossflow heavily ported, converted to solid...

      I think I may have solved the throttle cable dilemma. Use a throttle body from an early 1.8t Passat, since it has a ball stud for the cruise control. It has the same plug and it's OBD2, so I think it...

      Good choice on the 010. It will be easier to swap and more reliable than the 01M in the mk3. Yes, you will need to run the throttle cable from the transmission. That is the throttle valve/kickdown...
