Re: The GTI project is comming along well.
Ok, the engine is in and installed and it runs. I think I have the distributor off by one key/tooth. I need my timing light to make sure the timing is correct (it is off now, the header glows after about 5 minutes @ 2000rpm). Everything is looking positive, I've got 65psi oil at startup and about 60 when she's warm. With 4 cylinders pumping and an agressive cam it sure sounds different than my 2 cylinders that were barley running a little while ago. The oil looks clean, there is little blow by, the engine is smooth (needs tuning though, low end is bad right now).
Can't wait till later on today with the timing light. Vroom!!
