      I pulled a pair of door card side pockets from a 1988 Vw Fox Wagon at my local JY, and installed them on my Fox .

      Next- I will try to pull a Houdini, to fit a 1997-98 GTI console with cupholders in the Fox !

      This is promising. That Eurospec head has been begging for something better than the stock 9:1 Fox bottom end.

      Removed the antenna from the fender, and ripped the paint off under the rubber gasket.

      Replaced my spark plugs and most of the vacuum lines. Also re-routed the air intake hose to the front lower bumper grill.

      What kind of intake setups are possible with the CIS?

      You've done pretty much all you can. Although I think some volvo cis and rabbit lower housing will fit onto the airbox to add a theoretical CAI.

      Bought this for my Wagon, Procar steering wheel by Scat. Should go nicely with my Procar Elite seats. My interior theme is black and grey so the white should look fine and its a little more unique then just black.

      I tested most of the sensors in the engine bay. The engine has a small hiccup at higher RPMs.
      I think I might have a bad O2 sensor because the signal does not flucuate much at all. With the test harness I don't get much of a mA signal. Bt, it runs well at the same time, so I think there is something wrong, somewhere.

      I'm not quite sure why it melted like that. Any ideas or reasons that could happen?

      I was driving like I always do (a little hard), and then it felt like it ran out of gas and stalled. After putting gas in it and it still not starting I decided to open the Dist Cap and low and behold I found that!

      How old is the little one? Cute picture!

      I got beat down by a *CAR* because at the to; of second, the dumps fuel, or cuts out, or something. At least the Chev driver was nice about my humiliating defeat. The good thing? The gentleman who is tuning my car was there when it happened. Like that will do me any good...

      Chris: this may be (probably is) a noob question, but is your turbo going to be clocked like that when it's all said and done? I wouldn't have thought so, but I have been wrong before.
