      ok.... I just got them to design the piece for me..... but one thing I didnt think about until now is y not just get a piece made that the same as the plastic flange and then weld the 16V piece to it then obviously cut off and well the other opening shut
      i dont know but it seems to me that would be a little cheaper?

      That's fine until for whatever reason you need to replace the head. Then you have to have all that custom work done again.

      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

      Cool deal man! Why didn't you cut it closer to the head and eliminate that second tube altogether?

      Someone mentioned to me that I have a Rocco exhaust mani and that it appears you're using an A2 mani. I assume the Rocco one will not 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
