Nice engine score for your Scirocco. Although if it is a true ABF clone, you will have to move the engine mount points in the engine bay so that you can close the hood, because the ABF is a tall block engine that will sit higher than the low front hood line of your Scirocco body. The Golf/Rabbit, Jetta Mk1 and Mk2 models don't have this problem since there front hood sits higher on body of these cars.

I have seen an ABF clone fit in a Mk2 Scirocco before, the head was 9A 16v from an early 90's GTI and an ABA block with pistons from the same 9A 16v. This setup should not have front hood issues, it will sit low in engine compartment for the hood to shut.
