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.

there is a Show this weekend in St. Augustine
It's a mkI show but figured I would post it up anyhow. I would love for a few people to cruise up there with me.
here is the link
it still exists!
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!
thats good news!!!
^^ 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
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.
Does it spit and sputter or jsut straight dies?
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.
Eric, great photos!!!
Ahh. see now I was told they were very different not just the way the mounted or casted.
I use them interchangebly on Vrs all the time... especially since you can get the OBD1 used for much less. Footprint of the holes lines up perfectly. The main difference is the element itself, guess they made the OBD2 a little more durable. Might not apply to 8v though.
"OP sounds like a MKIV guy"
Well there's an OBD1 at the junk yard so I will pull the MAF out of that and clean it. I also need to figure out why my injectors continue firing after the engine dies.
An I will get the video today. It idles smooth and revs smooth. But in order to get it to rev up, I have to cover the intake and control the amount of air going in manually.
its a all euro show this Sunday in Yalaha. its about an 1 1/2 drive... but will probably take longer if I go, comfortable cruising speed in the caddy is 65-70
well lets start a leit for the show
we will be leaving around 9:00

^^ the man is correct
Ok, here is the video. And her is the order of things I show in it.
First I kill the motor just by opening the throttle.
Then you can hear the injectors continue to fire till the key is shut off.
Then I rev the motor by covering the intake and controlling the airflow.
Then I rev the motor by pumping the the throttle up a little at a time.
So tell me what you think. And what that whistle might be, I can't track it down for nothing. It sounds like it is coming from the upper manifold somewhere.
