      Thanks for the bump, and I DO recall this thread, all the way up to the one year update. That list is pretty impressive. Glad to hear the car's up and running again, it makes for a happier owner! Have fun at H2)i, you deserve it!

      Well sorry for no pics and videos, because I've been pissed :-x

      First, I thought I had a 16v Trans, got a 16v clutch... Install the 16v clutch... Finished the car, when I engaged the clutch " grinding "... Drop the trans, see that I have an 8v trans. Order a new clutch install it.

      Notice that my seals on the drive flange are missing
      http://www.germanautoparts.com/Volks...smission/178/4

      Need those, it's friday, Mondays a holiday.

      WAAAAAAAA

      Also the thermostat housing cracked randomly, and just started leaking, so I have to drop the power steering for that now. ugh ugh ugh

      ALSO got stiffed on here, for an ISV and a CSV... I bought both of them from some guy and got burned.

      " lost in the mail excuse as usual "

      Okay so the clutch trans, axles everything is installed.
      I'm having issues with the car though.

      On a cold start, it'll start right up. It'll run for about 10 mins, I can drive it, and it bogs a little bit.
      Then after about 10 mins it seems as if it floods itself out.
      Then I can't start it for a few hours, because it's flooded. Obviously I know it's flooded.
      Now, would my next step be turning the idle air adjustment screw to the left to try and lean it out?

      Any help here is appreciated. Would the thermotime switch also help flood the engine out if it was bad?

      Updated so frustrated with CIS, I'm thinking of tossing it

      Just bought another CIS-E Fuel Dizzy and box, hopefully it solves my problem.

      If not I'm going carbs.

      I really don't mind paying for shipping, only if that concerns you. If it's outrageous then it might not be worth it, thank you though.

      Update last night, I decided to check my intank pump and that was bad.
      It was covered in munk and rust.
      So last night I dropped the rear beam and the entire tank assembly.
      Waiting on a new intank pump, today I will powerwash out the tank and clean it.

      Changed the bad fuel tank, bad fuel pump...
      Still having starting problems.

      Cranks fine cold.
      Car does not start when it's hot and or warm.
      Just cranks really slow.

      So I'm at my last educated guess, that the starter is hot, and bad.

      After all this
      Changed the starter fixed my starting problem.
      Idled great.

      Just drove it, got it up too 4000 rpms, heard a pop, oil began pouring out of the intake.



      Looks like I lost the motor

      Broke down and had the car towed too a mechanic.
      Says he changed the fuel pressure regulator and repaired most of the wiring harness, which seemd to have some corroded wires and plugs that weren't making proper connections.
      Says he's running it on the dyno tomorrow to fine tune it.

      I guess because I lack pictures in this thread nobody cares lol, seem to just be talking and venting to myself mostly.

      Once it's back in my hands, it's going to be stripped down. Fulling the body apart for paint this winter. I missed h20, and was very upset about it. Every time I saw someones Scirocco I got pissed and upset because I put a lot of work into this car to try and make it down for h20. I've spent around 1500 dollars total from German Auto parts. Pretty much everything on this car is New. The entire fueling system, drivetain, suspension , and engine was overhauled and replaced. I'm pretty confident to that I can get another 25 years out of this car.

      My winter will consist of finishing this car, and major welding on my Bertone X 1/9.

      BTW I bought this 4 days ago.

      I'm almost ready to throw the entire 16v in the garage, and just toss in an aba 8v.

      New problem
      Will start and run great with fresh new plugs, after about 10 startups the plugs get fouled and covered with black soot.
      I'm assuming it's running rich. But I'm at the point where I don't know where to start and or adjust
