Actually installed the Autotech Cams, realised I had a Euro intake cam already (will be for sale soon...)
Was running real low on torque, so decided to take another look at timing...was out by a few teeth!! Got it going good now, but it doesnt feel much different than the stock euro setup... Oh well!
Put about 30 miles on my new-to-me '87 16v Friday to run the gas down and then pulled the tank out Saturday/Sunday to confirm the leak - seems to be the pinch point along the side. No vw dealer in town and was told over the phone by vw the tank recall had been performed back in '92. Amazing how well things came apart and the general shape of things considering its spent its whole life outside here in Alaska - 1 owner & 86k miles. Gonna be a few weeks until the replacement tank gets here so I'll just have to keep myself occupied with other items on the to-do list.
lined up a part time job for scirocco funds (and some necessary festifunding= the job is 2hrs away im sure the fes will be needing some parts after a bit of that, and of course "more low")
i may make cincy after all...
Ok so my lower rockers looked hideous and were rock chipped to death.... solution? sand the crap out of them, grind surface rust and then painted with semi gloss black undercoat paint... still need a bit of touchup from masking but i think it looks a ton better already... luckily after sanding i did not find that the rockers were swiss cheesed with rust.
back when i got the car it was so oxidized it was pink!!!
