Appreciate all the good feedback, those old hoses absolutely have to go
Trying to work out a swap with a friend for a new set of 195/50/15's. If I can clean up the rims and get them I'll be in a lot better shape.

This header situation sounds pretty bad...
I've had both race and street headers on other types of cars without all the problems you guys are talking about. Usually the problems I've had were with heat and clearance issues.
It seems like someone could design a header that was built heavy enough or had some sort of bracing to avoid all the cracking issues.
Oh, and I got the rims cleaned up and will post pics tomorrow
Was looking at that dreaming too...
I got the worst of the vacuum lines replaced, the oil changed (King Kong had installed the oil filter, took forever to get it loose), and the throttle body off and cleaned up.
Now if my friend comes through with a couple of tires I can feel ok about driving it around a little locally this weekend.
I've also been fighting a summer cold, been doing theses little projects in spurts though when I can't stand the couch any longer.

If anybody needs these I'd love to do some swapping
Big day for my Scirocco tomorrow it's heading to Import Connection in Charlotte NC to get the shifter rebuilt (thanks Stew!) and a few other odd's and ends looked at.

I spy a header without a flex bellow... hope you plan on running one on the before the cat. Keep an eye on those rotors too, there have been many who've had bad luck with the drilled/slotted rotors for our cars. I'm a Zimmerman man myself... but pimpin' ain't easy (or cheap). Good luck and keep up the progress.
This axe was made to grind.
Slight setback. Went to test fit then install the new rotors, calipers etc. and I can confirm that upgrading 88 16v scirocco brakes to corrado brakes requires an adapter which I currently do not have to bolt the carriers to the spindles. I had been told it was a direct bolt on but it is not.
Anybody have a pair of adapters for sale?
