    a while back i started 1st stage of my aba 8 valve vw build and that is to buy the parts i needed. the whole plan is to swap a 2 liter block in while doing that it will bump my cr to 10.5 to 1 from 8.someshit to 1cr that it was at when i got it. since i am bumping cr i thought why not free up the head a bit, i bought bigger valves and all the other parts needed.... my car came with a header and cam, i need to mod the header because the new block is taller.

    I had a GLI Jetta that I rebuilt...I drove the GL (8-valve) and liked it, but I was really turned on by the big difference in the 16-valve DOHC. It's hard to find a GLI around, but if you are using the 2.0 block, then getting the head off an older DOHC 16-valve Passat might make you happy...I was much happier.

    I used the head from the passat on the 1.8 block and I was very pleasantly suprised, and you can come across older passats everywhere...Just a thought. Also, if you can find a GLI, they come with Ricarro racing seats stock...some of the most comforatable seats I ever sat in...

    Good luck and have fun...

    A friend of mine has a 91 Wolfsburg that he is sending to the junk yard... his tire flew off on the freeway and decided to take the drum with it (fucking weird I know lol) he doesn't want to fix it because he says he's put too much money into keeping it running good, blah, blah, blah but if you need more interior parts or anything that you might need, let me know and i'll see if he'll sell it to you before it goes to the scrapper.

    he has like gray-beige seats. Wolfsburg seats(don't know if that makes a difference) and I don't know about the center console, i'll check it out for you. but I don't think it's black. you were looking for black right?

    the car is red, if you need a fender or hood, they are in good shape. couple dings, faded paint, you know little things you expect from a 15 year old car.
