      Plastic pieces from parts store that are designed for coolant hoses.

      The only place in town that had them was o'relies. I went to NAPA, auto zone, pep boys, and a bunch of others.

      going to be doing cbr carbs on a 3A counterflow fox...
      Got everything digifant out... I'm guessing I'll have to do some rewiring to get power to my fuel pump and cluster. I haven't looked over the bentley for this part yet.

      I have a question about the weir tech flange I plan to buy. The holes on my stock mani are just round without the cutouts for injectors in the manifold. (mine are in the head) Is it ok to use this manifold flange:

      http://www.weir-tech.com/volkswagen/.../8-mild-steel/

      Also was thinking about just jb welding some hose barbs into my old injector shrouds for my vacuum hookup. I know its cheap, but it should work these really don't see any pressure...

      plan to use cis ignition and bike fuel pump.

      HERE IS A TIP FOR EVERYONE.

      Take your stock upper rad hose. Make one cut in it here:


      Just above the alternator.

      Then take the end that would normally clamp to the water neck on the block, flip it, and then clamp it on.

      Connect the two halves, and viola, you have an upper rad hose, with only one splice, that will connect the ABF waterneck to the stock radiator.

      Apparently that intake manifold pictured is for crossflow, but they don't have it advertised as so from weir tech... Plan on calling tomorrow

      Yes, was just about to post that. That flange is for ABA/crossflow 8V.

      Also, it looks like the 16v runner spacing from the flange to the carb is the same, so you don't have to bend/angle the runner tubes (unlike the 8v's), correct?? That'll make fabricating the mani much easier with my limited fab skills. I'm picking up a local set of R1 carbs tomorrow and I'm ready to do this!

      Sorry, but after the last round of flanges taking 6 weeks to get, I've given up on the machinist I was using. He was too far out of my way, too.

      I'd recommend talking to Howie @ HE Performance. Check out his website: www.heperformance.com I know he's done a few 16V ITB manifolds, and he welded up my R1 manifold for me. Good guy, great work, SEMA Design award winner, he should be able to hook you up. Tell him Andy with Dub N Rub sent you.

      On the note of my project, I started a template for my throttle switch bracket yesterday. Upon some info I found in this thread I may pick up another micro switch and run a full throttle switch as well as the idle switch. Sorry, no pics.

      I am starting a project in my Jetta 1986 GLI, I already do a upgrade to my jetta I changed the engine for a ABA block with flat pistons, JH head stock camshaft, weber 32/36 carb, MSD 6AL ignition box, Blast 2 coil, and I am trying to change the JH Head to a 16v, with the ABA block probably I will need to change the flat pistons, and will put the yamaha R1 carbs.

      I am sorry for my poor english

      Well, after much debate, ignition-wise, I will drop my idea of going for an MSD6AL2 programmable for a Megajolt Jr setup. I'll still use an MSD coil pack and MSD spark plug wires. I'll start purchasing things little by little, no rush.

      time to do the MSD ignitions. this is what i have so far:

      on the start/retard box the white wire was connected to the green on the ignition module (pin #1). what about the gray and the purple wires? they are just left there.
      on the VW ignition module, what is pin 2? ground? pin 3, 5, 6 are connected to hall sender. pin 4 seems to be the ignition power wire because 2 red power wires (one from MSD and the other from retard box) were connected to it. by the way, my engine is 9a on motronic and didnt have the VW ignition module.

      is that all?

      Thank you.

      cant use that diagram because our distributors have hall senders not amplifiers. first thing that turned up on search
