      Non-emission, three-hole DHLA40s, pretty much my dream carb. The emissions versions are super nice, but.I find they lean out at top end, and have very few etubes available. These will be going on...

      So, I've given up on the caddy and bought a local 87 GTI 16v (still 1.8 16v!). I sold this guy all my dellorto jets/chokes/tubes years ago, as well as a set of DHLA40s (non-emission), so I get them...

      By adjustment I meant that the dwell settings would need to be adjusted. You'd need a dwell meter and a bunch of feeler gauges. If you just turned it, it's likely a Hall Effect distributor. That's...

      The head will bolt on, but it's going to be low compression. It would be suitable for boost, but kinda doggy NA. The 8V CIS-E bowl profile will be unsuitable for the fueling needs of the 16v too,...
