    finally got my 16v Coupe back :bigthumb: :bigthumb: :bigthumb:

    It's an '87 with 168k on the body. 85k on the motor, and 15 on the tranny. I don't feel like typing the mods, but if you want them, i'll post them, enjoy...

    Nice - The first thing I'd do is replace the [Oo===vw===oO] with [O====vw====O]. I like single lights better on mkII.

    135whp is my guess...140 tops. The highest i've ever seen is about 160 and that was with ALOT of shit done.

    I was thinking closer to 130..

    I saw 165 coming out of a 'rocco last summer and we were all blown away by that.
