Hey guys I recently got my hands on an 83 Gti and carbing it is one of the many many things I may want to do in the future. It has a really solid 8v engine with a very aggressive cam that seems to run like a top, but the fuel injection system scares me a little because it seems very primitive and complicated, I also have heard if it goes bad you’re pretty much screwed. Also cosmetically the carbs will clean up the engine bay and give it a rawer look which I like. I don’t know if this is frowned upon, as I am new to the mk1 community, because after all the i in Gti stands for injected or injection. I was thinking of going with a kit from redline fuel management that includes everything you need and two weber 40 DCOE 174 carbs for 11 hundred. Is that a good carb choice and is that a good price? Let me know if you have any insight on this subject.
Many Thanks, Brian
