      the thing is for a part number i would need to know some measurements off your carbs or you can do it yourself. Here is a link to K&N's universal filters by measurement. http://www.knfilters.com/universal/universal.htm once you click on a style you like in the upper right hand corner it shows you what you need to measure.

      2015 Jetta TDI 1977 VW Scirocco soon to have a tdi!

      Im still having sealing issues in one of the bowls thats not shutting all the way checked it in a bowl of both fuel and water and in both it stays afloat as well as if i try to hold it under the surface theres no bubbles coming from it. My fuel pressure is only at 3 psi and i just replaced the plunger that attatches to the float and im still not able to get the one carb to shut off. Do i just take a gun and put a bullet in it or what?

      It goes to my number 4 cylinder so the far right if your looking at them. I was thinking about it and this is the same carb that was giving me problems when i was running counterflow initially and was acting up from time to time.

      The only thing I have left to hook up before the initial start is my vacuum advanced distributor. I have been told that I need to get vacuum right at the butterflys rather than lower in the stream near the head where I am getting vacuum for my brake booster. Can anyone tell me if/where on the R1 carbs there is a vacuum port that I can pull from?????
      Thanks in advance.

      i know its a pain but try switching floats around to see if it moves to a different carb.

      hmm did you switch just the float or plunger too? also it sounds like it has to do with float components if it changed when you switched them around....also have you looked at when the plunger seats compared to a carb that doesnt have the flooding issue? (idk if you know what i mean so i try to describe it.) take off the bowls of two carbs, preferably right next to each other. start rotating the carbs backwards so the floats start going up. pay close attention to the plungers as to when they stop moving and start to depress the springy thing on the end. (haha i dont know what to call it.) anyway if the carb that is flooding takes longer to seat the plunger than the one that doesnt then adjust the metal tab on the float to have it close at the same time.

      im sure youve already looked at that, but i just thought id throw it out there cause sometimes i forget to do things that should be one of the first things checked when im trying to figure out why they dont work.

      anyway my car will be going to sleep for the winter soon and im picking up a 2.7t A6 quattro tomorrow for winter

      Franklin... it was explained to me that unless I pull vacuum for the distributor close to the butterflys then at idle the distributor will be fine but as soon as I put on some throttle it will go full retard. On the CIS the vacuum for the dizzy is pulled right at the edge of the butterfly in the throttle body.

      Filters I used for a bit, UNI PK52, worked great. Till I messed two up!

      Vacuum, I have mine close to the head for clearance and it works great.

      Pig, love the camo on your car!

      If anyone is going to the Harrisburg (PA) Toys4Tots tomorrow, I might have the Jetta there. If the wife will drive the MKIV...

      If anyone has questions, hit me up. I've had mine running for a long time and can answer most questions.

      mine seems to be fine pulling from close to the head. i honestly couldnt tell you if it jumps to full advance or not once i give it some throttle. but there is absolutely no hesitation at all from my engine through out the rev range and no knock that i can hear. i guess to me what is 1.5 inches of runner going to do when the runners total length is 3.5 inches from head to the throttle plate? (minus the inlet opening to valve opening.) on a stock 8v intake the closet runner to the TP is atleast 8 inches or longer (guesstimating) which may show a difference in the vacuum timing advance. idk though...

      So my rack of carbs has something seriously wrong with them ive even taken them to a bike mechanic that went through them and said nothing was wrong. put them on the car and same damned problem so im going to scrap this rack and buy a new rack to see if that solves my problem. if so then ill have a great set for stealing parts from for the future.

      the car

      (click on pic to hear it if you want)
      Finally got the pig up and running. It took far too much to get started. Needs the air restricted in front of the carbs too much. Actually had to cover them with my forearm as my brother turned the thing over. But once it was up and running it seemed ok except the sporadic knock that would occur once in awhile. So... shut it all down and noticed there seemed to be a bit of fuel coming out of port #2.


      Pulled the plug. Shine flashlight into hole. WTF?!?!?!?! Now I know why the car that this motor was in went to the junkyard. Tried to dislodge it with an iron rod and hammer. No luck. Tomorrow after work I am pulling the head to see what this random piece of metal may be. This has been quite the ordeal but the end is near... gonna have it on the streets soon.

      Wish I'd have seen this sooner, I was at the Hbg T4T. Dropped my manifold off with Howie from HE Performance to have it welded up, while I was there. Enough dicking around, this has been holding me up for quite some time. I'm not going to be playing with a VRT MK2 in the snow, anyways.

      Finally! It's only taken like a eyar and a half to finally get these things mounted on my engine! A huge thanks to Howie at HE Performance (www.heperformance.com) for his fantastic welding work!

      Wow! That's a nice looking manifold!! Wish mine was aluminum sometimes. But right now I'm contemplating on converting to rwd or going turbo..only thing is I'll have to buy a new trans either way....

      That is the manifold that I dream of. What runners did you use to get that all to fit? Looks GREAT!

      Runners are pieces of Porshce 928 intake runners.



      Swapped a engine in one at the shop I worked at a few years ago and picked up the spare intake to hang on the wall in the garage, or something, and this wound up being the perfect "or something" for portions of the runners.

      Just popped on today to look back through here at the throttle cable setups you guys are running. I got my fuel line finished and my choke cable run last weekend. Going to Blowes or Home Despot later today and want to see if I need anything while I'm there.

      Here's a few more pics of what's done.
