Well I picked up this from Summit, along with some braided hose and a new spring return.
Then I went to the Chicago connection and picked up the rest of the plumbing odds and ends, I got this fuel pressure gauge too.
I grabbed a set of those DCOE heat shields from Pierce Manifolds too
Got the feed lines off today while I was workin in the bay, she's all ready for the AN sweetness, also got the oil cooler finished up all tweaked. I need one more bolt but that's not a deal Ender.
I found this pic of the heat shields I bought, this shows how they mount. Sould be pretty sound, I'm still contemplating the super cool can.
Oh yeah, I found out that what I thought were 40's are 45's! :
You should check out this stuff for an insulator!
So I've heard the factory Weber air horns on the DCOE 40's aren't all that great for airflow, and one of mine was dinged when it came from Pierce Manifolds. Wondering if any of you guys have used aftermarket air horns... I was looking specifically for short(ish) full-radius horns that will provide smoother inlet flow and fit under a Pipercross PX600 or ITG JC40/JC50 air filter. I live in really dusty conditions, so I am planning to run one of those filters.
These guys have all kinds horns for any Weber possible.
Got most of my stuff, still need the rest of the plumbing to get the feed lines on, got the heat shields too.
Well guys, I've decided in the last few weeks that since I have a kid now I need to put the dubs on the back-burner for a while. I'm selling my MkII =( I'll still be around for moral support =)
Oh, and shameless plug - I have a set of smoked German MkII Golf tails going to the highest bidder lmao
Someday soon my friends, this ride will come to an end - but we can't just get in line again.
( I got a new MkII for you all to make fun of )
Here's the link I found:
Also found them here:
I found a nice one kinda like that one but on the cheap side, see here.
After much deliberation about crank case ventilation, I first thought about a 1.5 qt oil accumulator w/ a check valve, decided against that=overkill. Then researched the effectiveness of a catch can, finally decided against that as well. I'm gonna go old school and go with what I know and vent the Crank case via the DP. I'm gonna use the Moroso kit got the same ones on my 62 Chevy C-10!
Arg the pains of riding this bike!!!! Yesterday heard and saw a Mazda RX2 at full song through the canyons. Noisy little bugger.

Ok, after wrestling with the braided lines and the AN fittings, I am 90% finished with my fuel feed. After getting it mocked up I need one more 90 AN to NPT. As well the inline is in the mail,i went with some local boys to Colorado, Votion Speed. I still have to fab up a mount for the FPR.
Out with the old
In with the new
I also got rid of the two extra lines coming out of the frame rail, I cut them back and capped them.
I got my fan shrouds back from the powdercoater, got both style of Passat 16V fans, slimline 11 blade and 4 blade. Couldn't make my mind up on the color so I got one black and one white. Got some 10.4mm Autotech plug wires comin for her too, with a set of mounting bolts for lower stress bar. The Moroso V/C should be done at the coater next week, that will go on with the schrick oil pan. Well see if I have the time or money to get the headliner done this season!
Inline filter came in today, still waiting on a few more fittings before she can drink fuel. Got the fans together today, I'll test fit them tomorrow. Also ordered more wire wrap for the engine harness.
Here's what the finished product on the wire loom came out, had to get a few more feet, looks real good I think.
