Re: What strut brace do you diesel guys run? (burn_your_money)

im just runnin a neuspeed one
ive had it since 91 or so,it was the first "speed" part i ever bought,and yes its a hoor,cause its been on all my cars ever since
it was a pita on my old 80,cause it has a wierd square coolant bottle,so i swapped a normal one
sometimes ya may need to bend that fuel filter bracket
neuspeed bar
lol wheres my filter????

only reason i moved it is i wanted easier engine access+less clutter,and i think i had air intake pipe clearance issues,clarence

heres a pic of the neuspeed bar,someone said once i had it on backwards?
but thats the way ive usually seen them installed

See the bracket in the fender, directly on the left of the air filter? Move the fuel filter there. That's where it is on my 81, and 81 is the only year I've seen with them there. Requires a little bracket to allow the filter to slide into the bracket, but you can make something.
Then, just run the strut bar...

Re: What strut brace do you diesel guys run? (Cynical 1)

future expansion required the fuel filter to be down low
probably gonna have intercooler piping and stuff like that goin in there
this project is never done till it gets solid 13's
thats an old pic since then ive removed that bracket
i may put the air filter in the wheelwell (witha inner fender liner of course)

early gas rabbits had a windshield washer resevoir there, very good idea, I hope I have the bracket still. I might convert my coolant overflow to the later mk2 style, then it should clear on both sides
