your trying so hard to go out of the norm just because you FEEL its necessary. Its not useless info why dont you do your research first before calling something useless. Not a SINGLE person is using a vented gas cap in the carb\sem forum, why? because its not necessary. Why you still want to use a vented gas cap is beyond me or probably anyone on here.
Theres hundreds of people that have working carb setups on mk2's (including me). Theyre working for a reason because they follow advice given by other people with sucessful setups. Your going to end up trying too hard to get unneeded parts and your carb setup is going to end up not running right. Why dont you start with the basics and get it running 100% first then start adding parts that wont do anything

installed catch can in the same location where is was before. also, got a bracket for alternator and new alternator belt. so far everything fits well.

Good to do everything alone - makes sure it's all done RIGHT.
A wideband isn't essential - tune by the spark plugs. (...or cop out and send it to a shop). A wideband is just a lovely bit to make the job of tuning the engine easier.
I imagine a shop would have their own emissions checking system..?
I never had too many problems with those subframe bushings, took them out few times. a helping hand and some oil to lube it, long thick flathead screwdriver and some wiggle here and there. Dredz and me have solid bushings for the subframe, I havent installed mine but it looks like a breeze. car looks good!
I do work on cars, anything short of engine and transmission rebuilding can be done. welding, custom and aftermarket as well as regular repairs. IM me for details, shop is in WOodbridge.
Finished the bracket, and it fits well.
edit, this has been modified and timing control box added.

all depends on if I get accepted for doctoral program or not. If i do, then the car will be put on hold for a while, if not, then I'll start rebuilding the transmission.
