      i think im going to be running yamaha r1 carbs on a 1.8 16v in a 1981 rabbit pickup.
      would it be as simple as fabricating a manifold then bolting it all up with an r1 fuel pump?
      or is there more to it? would i have to rejet the carbs???
      would the factory dizzy and ignition be fine to use???

      any help would be greatly appreciated

      Give it a shot man, I'll be honest with you though, motorcyle carb on a car just doesn't sound right.

      R1 carbs work great (from all the stuff I have found!) I have a set on my MK1/ABA'd jetta. A few pics of my set up/mani . . .

      I am still working on my car (to damn cold in WAY northern NY!)

      You will have to drill out or buy new jets (I bought a few sizes to play with), play with the needles and other stuff I cant think of right now!
