    I’m not impressed with the new Empi/Jaycee stuff. Looks like it will fall apart and be difficult to fill. 1990 called and wants their billet back 😁 …and I’m disgruntled because they won’t sponsor our class 11 car.

    I set Dan up with an original German alt stand many moons ago… It doesn’t get much better than that.

    Pats has been doing a great job on the fuel injection fitment.

    Removed .200” from the throw out bearing collar per RLR specs.A701C9A0-CCF8-4F03-9C75-B01A903E62E0D0FF3607-9779-4EA4-B1ED-A4C01980E5C3

    Franz you could make life a lot easier for you and the next person to pull Dan’s engine. Modify the system to use one throttle body. We used one from a late model fuel injected Beetle. No syncing! No problems trying to install the intakes! Easy for you.

    Not sure a single intake set up would make things much easier in the smaller Oval engine bay.

    I had to pull the alternator, intakes, valve covers, valve cover mount studs, and the crank trigger sensor. After a precise tilt/ shimmy/ shake/ and lift it all slide together nicely.DF860614-D4C2-417A-A146-A95EF306A9DC47DE57B8-BA87-4538-B469-BEAE03F4BA77

    Just enough room to get a socket set up behind the shroud to tighten the fan down.8921CFB9-AC01-4DCD-B6EB-43C2C7DC58774AB37206-0FCC-493A-A35E-B65CD5C566FC

    Shortened the valve cover mount studs so valve covers can be pulled without pulling studs. New seals as well.

    Trans mount studs had to lose a little height to clear the new fly wheel set up.36C30CE9-E1F3-4E6C-893D-3492C5B177E5CA186882-2557-4B59-AB99-E2875E78DF89

    Mounting the new EFI  box and organizing the harness is up next.

    Bent up a pair of new mounts for the EFI box  and organized the wiring under the rear seat. Just a few wires to hook up before start up.BA9E9DBD-F45B-4130-9408-0FCF318B058DB77123B7-0B10-489D-BBD5-372098E4A0B0

    Intake bits shined up and fit. Throttle linkage as well. C6951856-7D52-4E95-91EA-7B1DC2CD8DAB

    Driver side oil cooler & kafer bar back in. Wiring organized and secured. Header, turbo, and oil lines all done on the bottom side.AD6DB4C1-1AEE-4F8E-95DA-441273236DB22F9092FD-110B-46AE-B98B-34072A856E4F

    Do you have a starting tune for it from Mark? I could send you mine. I think the engines are very similar.

    That header design is so much better than the one with the wastegate on the number 2 exhaust pipe.

    All back together and ready to start..maybe tomorrow. I will need to pressurize the oil system, and setup the laptop. Everything is tidy on the engine, like before there is a bunch of fuel injection stuff on the backside of the fan shroud…just more now. We even took the time to polish all the aluminum as it went back together. I challenge you to find a cleaner looking fuel injected air cooled engine.

    Travis at proformance did an awesome job on the exhaust header. It’s a work of art.

    Very clean!! I’m surprised the “sync link” linkage hasn’t caught on more.  It’s not cheap like the hex bar, but it’s clean.

    I have moved away from the orange filters and gone to the Wix 151515R. Supposed to be better than the Fram.

    You mean wix 51515R? I just ordered from napa. I’ve also used K&N hp3001 on cars that have high oil pressure, they have a deeper O-ring on the sealing surface, and thicker housing.

    I’ve been having problems connecting the ancient laptop windows vista to the gen4 ecu…I installed a new driver and troubleshot a bunch of junk this morning. I’m going to drag the desktop computer over to the car to check initial adjustment and get the thing started.

    …for data logging and tuning we’ll need to get a better laptop.
