Seriously, I got my fuel pump running reliably for the first time on Megasquirt, before I had anything else on MS. I got sick of the fuse panel bypass flakiness, and had the MS stuff sitting in the car not doing anything, so one yellow wire later, no more erratic fuel pump. The ignition wasn't far behind, and it was a long time after that before the injectors were actually controlled by MS.
Nice find you got there.
Indiana Red!! Love it!
Ya know - that automatic transmission can be removed - if you look I believe you can put a clutch pedal in there..
That's what I would do..
Your paint looks awesome for that old - this is 1 month old and yours is lookin good!!
My first Mk1 (well...technically my wife's) was an 1980 Platinum Gray automatic. The car rotted before that darn 3 speed gave up. It had a bad rod bearing and clapped like a diesel from day one of ownership. It was the Scirocco that really got me hooked - loved it more than the nice 84 that I also owned at the time.
