It took me a second to get on board with that idea, but it does seem like a cheaper alternative for us non-CAD-using folk! I was getting ready to try fab'ing something out of 1/2" aluminum plate by hand tomorrow... I think I'm going to try that instead. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
after thinking abot this some more.... i have to take a look at the 16v flange..... its at the machine shop..... I am going to see if i can cut both of the pipes on the flange and then weld both to the plate then you have 2 ports coming into the head
i thought about that but then i wouldnt be able to get the bolts into the holes to put into the head

ok here is the question i have..... i ordered a 16V Fuel Rail from bahn brenner... but i dont think i have the right one.... can someone tell me if both of these will work?
do i have to have this part in order to make it work?

BBM told me I could use either one of those adapters. they said you only need the canister style if you want to retain the stock MkIV reg. Might give them a call for more details, but i'm sure you can make it work.
OK im looking through the bentley and I have a BEV engine correct me if im wrong here but with the BEV the FPR is part of the fuel filter back by the tank..... I just want to be sure before i do this but i should be able to run the fuel line right to the fuel rail without a FPR Adaptor correct?

Huh. Makes sense to me. My car has the FPR there at the end of the rail so I went with the "canister" adapter.

my MKIII had it at the end too.... when i popped the hood to do some research i thought i was retarted.... I was like.... where they hell is that stupid thing..... i was following the fuel line and everything.... went back to the bentley and i noticed it was missing from the BBW engine diagram..... and then i thought OMG i have the dredded BBW..... but from what i can tell BBW only came on Jettas..... but then i verfied it in the car and in the manual that BEV and BBW both have the FPR back in the tank

lol. so did I
in fact, I looked into swapping in the BWW/BEW fuel system to avoid needing a FPR for a cleaner engine bay.

haha.... no really im serious.... im already into this build for like 1500 bucks..... its not the big stuff that gets you its the little stuff... like orings and oil filters and oil and gaskets....etc etc.... ill be quite happy with a stock 16V.... once i get that one there im going to get C2 Software for more power and to get rid of the CEL from the SAI
my MKIII with a cam and chip couldnt even touch a stock 16V ..... and i drove that for 6 years.... i might consider something else but then i have to replace the FPR the Clutch ..... etc etc etc...eeeek
elrey what did you do about this vacuum port on the lower intake... i dont even see it on yours...... i looked through every opening on the lower intake and i cant even see where it even goes... but anyway I was thinking of running the Vacuum line that goes into the side of the MKIV 2L Upper intake and running it down to the lower one? what you think?

It goes to the injectors. If you pull the old injector seats out and look at threads you can see a hole. I left the port open. The digi injector seats cover the inside hole. If you want you can just put a rubber vac plug over it. It will not see vacuum.
Alright I have quick question for you.... i noticed that you have a block off from the front coolant flange on the 16V..... can you explain to me how this works..... i mean im not totally sure what happens..... i assumed that with the 16V coolant came in through the side and went out threw the front?...... im probably wrong..... but is there openings in the bottom of the head to allow coolant to drain down and go into the block and out the MKIV front coolant flange?.....
ok elrey.... i missed the stupid cutout when i was trming the skirts..... so i dont have to take the engine apart to figure out where is supposed to be can you tell me which dot represents the spot where the cutout for the oil squiters is?

I'm guessing you have AEG mk4 rods in front of you. While AEG rods do look similar to 9a rods, AZG/BEW rods are totally different.
20mm pin vs 19mm pin. straight cut vs tapered small ends. and 9a are beefier than AZG/BEW.
Even the AEG rods are slightly different and are not an exact fit into 9a pistons. Or at least the pins. IIRC, the 9a pins are longer than AEG pins.
