Re: was working on the 16v today and snapped a few pics... wanna see (vw problems)

Carbs are sooooo tempting. I'm tired of replacing EFI parts. Its getting expensive. I just replaced the ISV ($180) and the micro switches on the TB ($140). I've had to replace the injectors, the knock box and both fuel pumps, too. I guess that's to be expected after 250K miles. I've got too much into it now. I should've gone with Webers right off the bat. Looks good. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
