      May be a long shot, but check and see if your cat is melted or exhaust is clogged.
      I know someone who had a similar problem and it ended up being a clogged cat.

      There is no way my mechanical or ignition timing would change.
      That'd be the most coincidental of coincidences.

      AFAIK, you'd only have to change the engine management & transmission bellhousing.
      Haldex is pretty standalone.

      being a mk4, it'll cost more than a mk3 to get moving real nice.
      the most annoying cost factor being the plastic intake manifold needing to be replaced :thumbdown:

      $800 is reasonable for a running/driving wagon that isn't rotted out.

      I wouldn't put a VR in it if the car is in poor shape. If it's in great shape, it's a good swap.
      With that said, if the VR...

      May have access to a set of Votex duals, but the lights are broken.
      From what I can tell, the Votex/Hella units are the same, except for the housing (the Votex are straight black).

      Alexi is correct.

      However, may I add a bit of advice? Don't run your intake down to the ground.
