      Nice. I'm actually looking into setting up my 16v with dual 45 webers. Can you give me a list of everything I will need to run them?

      It is not your aptitude, but your attitude, that determines your altitude.

      fuel pump
      regulator ( depends of the pump you will be running , mine works without )
      manifold
      throttle linkage
      webers ( lol )
      ignition setup , locked dist, saab dist or MSD boxes
      fuel hoses
      spare jets
      a balancing tool and a wideband are a must
      and a way to lower your alternator or it wont clear the manifold, i use a diesel alt setup.

      one more thing .. a person that know what they are doing with webers, otherwize you will probably have headaches trying to get them to run well !


      thats about it !

      Sounds great! I would like to replicate this setup in an MK1!

      How much did they draw at idle each?
      I just corrected my timing last night with a advanced timing light so I could finally set it.

      After I set the timing, I just threw the gauge on all, they were all pulling 10 evenly. I haven't touched the idle mixture screws or anything yet. I only had like 30 mins last night, so I set the timing then cleaned up pretty much, but tonight I plan on investigating a little more.

      mine pulls about 3 each at idle with a 900-1000rpm idle and 8 degrees of timing also at idle , with 10 your idle must be kind of high i presume ?

      Sounds awesome, did you have any jets around? That you wanted to sell? I'm going to be ordering a redline kit tomorrow if I can find any jets cheap.
      I turned my mixture screws all the way in, then back out 2 1/2 turns. No Bueno with the current drilled out jets... I have to turn them out like 4 -5 turns to get it to run.

      didnt really had the choice, it was leaking and found out that first the lower frame was gone, and that that windshield wasnt even glued to the car ,i removed the molding and the windshield came loose and i removed it.. that was very dangerous can you imagine if it had a crash the windshield would have popped out ! damn people
