I finally managed to get the baja started today. I also got the carbs tuned good enough for the car to idle. I didnt let it idle for long since I havent broke in the motor yet. I was hoping to do that today, but didnt feel that safe holding the throttle at 2000rpms for 20 minutes without someone there that new something about vw engines. Hopefully I will get that done this week and be able to take it for its first drive this weekend!

Does anyone know of a good shift linkage coupler? I have the poly one on there right now but it seems to slip from just going through the gears a few times.

There are special washers you use with your CV bolts. There is 2 types that I know of, the bent washer and the one that look like a normal washer but has little groves cut into it like a star lock washer. (It's not a star lock washer.)


I use this type of washer and no longer have bolts backing out any more.
