Do they also carry the seal as well?

Finally got some mail in today, allowing me to move forward a bit. New pilot bearing insert/seal/bearing, RMS, oil pan gaskets, clutch kit, hardware. The pilot bearing going in was easier than I was anticipating. Just threaded the same bolt I used to extract it into the back of it and tapped it with a hammer until it was fully seated. EZ PZ

I haven't posted in a while, but It's because I've been doing a lot of hacking, online shopping, and measuring to see how I can make things work. Today I finally got to throw things together to vaguely get an idea of how everything might fit. Essentially I'm just missing the EFI kit at this point, so there's no fuel rail/FPR/injectors or harness, but when measuring everything I made sure to leave room for the other components as best as I could. This is what I've come up with so far.

The Idle air control valve Is from my old and sold 87 928 S4. Obviously the hose coming from the IACV that appears to be too long Isn't actually cut to size yet, but simply illustrating where It's intended to be routed to. The Audi TB actually had a piece on the side that was perfect to route to the IAC valve, but it was protruding in such a way that it interfered with the 180 degree intake pipe. So I had to hack it up and put a brass 90 degree elbow in its place. I gotta say, It's all fitting like a glove... for now...

Hey gents, I'm back. Spent a lot of time cycling over the summer, but the project is still chugging along. Waiting on a part to come back from a metal working shop, and a few pieces of mail; For the most part I'm getting pretty close to being able to start the car.

Picked this injector sinse my car will remain naturally aspirated, and won't need a crazy amount of fuel. 268cc injector from a 2001 VW 1.8l turbo Beetle.





Hole for wire-harness. Waiting on a grommet.



This might seem a little extreme, but has anyone here actually chopped this gear off the end of the cam (EFI converts)? I'm honestly considering doing so, just so I can replace the entire gear/dizzy housing with a flat aluminum plate. Reason being to allow more space for easier maintenance. Again. I know that's a bit extreme, but I'm sort of obsessed at this point with making things minimal and easy to work on.







I tapped and put my own brass elbows to help reduce the amount of hose and molded 90 degree hose used. Also the cold start valve opening was tapped to allow a port for the MAP sensor. Hard to see maybe but the threaded holes have grub screws in them to seal the intake.






Injectors were deliberately selected for output and shape. I wanted to have them fit the stock inserts and still reach down into where the original injectors would. All I had to do was pick up some O-rings from ACE to make them fit the inserts. Top O-rings are a generic size and fit the fuel rail already.




I'll post more as I go along. My next big step is wiring power to my harness and other little odds and ends. I'm also going to do my best to remove the unused stock wiring.
