      Bumping this for the forum's sake. To a MOD: Should I bother re-posting this in the MK3 forum? It's tailored toward ABA's, and a ton of "OMG 8V FAST PLZ" threads pop up there a day. I think it'd help, but I'd rather have a mod tell me. Thanks, I really hope everyone who uses this gets useful information. If you have any ?'s, feel free to PM me or post in this thread, I check it daily.

      Are you sure they're obd1? From what I've seen, some 1995 VW's are OBD2, but most were OBD1. If you look in an aftermarket part catalog for most aftermarket companies, 1995+ Passats were OBD2. It's tricky.

      Cross-flow = in/ex ports on opposing sides of the head.
      Counter-flow = in/ex ports on the same side.

      8v heads from 1985 and up were hydro.

      Sorry, I meant exhaust system. 60mm (2.4") mandrel bent piping, 1 resonator, 1 mid muffler, one on the end, DTM tips, stainless steel. They sound great!

      Unfortunately, they charge a 20% restocking fee, +shipping. So I'd end up paying around 200 dollars just to return it, and not save any real money at all if I buy a new one from neuspeed because 500+ shipping is about 540.. I'm going to call them and tell them about my blunder, hopefully they'll price match. MJM is a very reasonable company, I've dealt with them in the past.
