      kinda can't. need an alignment first then i can see if I'm going to rub with the 15's I have got lined up for it. Also the roads up here are HORRIBLE. oil pan is already beaten up pretty bad and it was on stock suspension... I want to get this oil pan.

      Darn Scirocco fuel tank was actually crazy rusted. POR-15 Fuel tank kit worked wonders on it though and it's sitting drying for the sealer right now. Those chemicals they provide are spectacular. Just wish the cure time for the sealer wasn't 4 days.

      Alright... a bit of an emergency. Found out tonight that my motor and harness is all OBD1 and my ECU is OBD2.

      So anyone have an OBD1 ECU that I could borrow for a week or so? I am working on getting a chipped ECU from someone. But it wont be here for this weekend.

      I need to start this stinking car tomorrow or it isn't going to St Augustine this weekend!

      ^^ it started and idled, but died when throttle was applied. the car did not make it to the show, he drove his mkIV.
      the ride home was fun and can't wait to see the rolling shots

      Yeah, it was a no go. Maybe you can answer this... Will an obd2 MAF work on an OBD1 motor?

      And Pete, pics tomorrow! I need sleep! Haha

      No. they are different as far as I know. You can actually run the car with out a maf. it will run and rev but it puts the obd1 into limp mode at a certain rev I think. not 100%. like it will go to 4 or 5k rpm then stop. If I'm correct. I for certain that the mafs are different.

      Don't need one of those to make it run either. Not on OBD1. If you want good gas mileage you need it. but it will run with out one. I have video of one running with out one.
