  2. Golf I & Jetta I
    Hi, just fixed up my 89’ cabriolet and I’m having troubles tuning it. I believe there’s a different cam in it as it runs really lopey at idle and has aftermarket headers. Took it for a test drive and could barley get it out of the driveway without revving it to 2500, it also has an oil splash...

    Honestly, it would be unnecessary and unkind to call this 1985 1.8-liter GTI ratty, but there are a couple of things that qualify the car for this series. Despite looking pretty good, the GTI is showing signs of its age. The paint is, apparently, a little tired and there are some signs of a...
