      And from the look of it, I'm going to have to hunt down some springs
      Yeah, it's an 8v. If I wanted a sporty car, I'd buy an R.

      It's a $200 Bosch pump... but yeah, same can be done with just about any inline pump. I don't have to worry about the box breaking or cracking on me. If the pump ever needs replaced again, we're talking five-minute job, max.

      We're now running a single in-tank pump...in fact, here's the "install".

      Thanks! Right now, the outlet hose is 3/8", and get's reduced down to 5/16" to meet the filter (with a barbed hose coupling and a couple clamps). This can be accomplished with just one hose, provided you have a female -6AN to 5/16" hose barb adapter. The 3/8" adapter was all I was able to find locally, and I had to order the correct one.

      I will be swapping that output hose out with a proper -6AN to 5/16" fitting as soon as it gets here. This will eliminate the hose coupling and the two extra hose clamps. I also want to swap all my hoses to 5/16" Aeroquip, but none was available locally, and I couldn't wait. It'll look cleaner when it's done, done.

      Here's the part number -- Bosch 0 580 254 044

      Walked around mine ,looked at it and walked away with my head down ..a bad diff really upset me after all I did registering it , and trailering it an hour away just to turn around 20 mins later .

      The diff is bad,the bearings wobble around and it was go na cost more than my funds allowed to get it fixed .so she sits again til I get money and a trans .

      Got blown off for the third time by someone trying to sell a trans, still looking for one, if anyone comes across this, looking for a trans for an 87 8v GTI. Other than that, wishing that my mechanical fuel injection stuff looked better in the bay, gotta pick up an engine stand to do a head gasket/valve cover gasket/degrease/paint engine tomorrow
      My girlfriend and I may have broken up after three years, but then again, I have the MK2<3

      You can use an 020 trans from just about any 4cyl VW.
      If "87 8v" isn't pulling anything for you, try searching in the MKII and MKIII classifieds for "020", or asking around for transmissions from 90's 2.0L cars. You may even end up with better mileage depending on the gearset. 020's are nearly a dime a dozen, especially if you don't care about specific gear combinations, and just need one to work.

      Swapped out the blown dash speakers for some new ones. Also found out all that chirping from the engine bay is the water pump bearing going out Was replaced not even a year ago.

      well.. what you cannot see in the picture is the terrible running 8v and the cancerous rust that was tucked everywhere. I started doing work and gave up on it, sold it to my friend and he used alot of parts for his jetta then scrapped the rest.

    32. 02-24-2012 10:59 PM #21452


      This has been my project since I bought it off ebay back in July. It spent most of it's life in Texas, so totally rust free. I just put a party interior in it so will add pictures later. Will be adding euro side markers next. I'm waiting for my LED bulbs. Probably come in the mail tomorrow.

      It made my car extra low though! My tires weren't a huge fan of this though, they screamed most of the way home
