On the base lemon lot today; '92 GLI 16v, red, quad rounds, pretty rough.  Only 141k, but wants $2k... needs too much work to be worth that.

Just wondering if anybody knows the story.

I'd give maybe $1k, just for the engine and rust-free body.  Missing Ricaro's, headliner, lots of trim.  Still has snowflakes and all the jackflaps though.

Too bad it was so bright that my camera made halos all over this thing, it's really not this good looking.

shit i know that car.  has a 2.0l eng i think with a 1.8l 16v head which means higher comp.  the suspension has had some work and alot of new parts. you should be able to get it for 1400 perhaps.

um. dont know yet. dont which one i wanna turbo.  have a junkyard garret turbo just itchingto be used.

he game a tons of parts to go with it. 2.0 head. ecus. fuel disto. grill lights oil chnge.lol bushings valve cover. set drilled rotors. extra snowflake.and a slip dirrefential so i didnt mind paying the price he asked for. the night rider wil lbe using most of those parts anyway

o yea its a 16v with tthe 2.0 bottow.

feels like about 20 extra horsies

its rides good though

first thing in plans is to holler at my homeboi in atl to get a lightened flywheel, lightened flywheel are the shyznit.lol lightened flywheel really livened up the nightrider.

it suffers the same rough idle dea like the night rider does. i can find the vaccum leak to save my life so maybe you could help me with that on both of them

Throughly check the wiring to the ISV, make sure it's not melted, corroded, broken, coated in oil, or generally F-d-up by the PO.

If that seems to check out, check all the rubber fittings on the hose going to the back end of the intake.  I had some problems with the rubber 90deg. elbows, they are under a lot of vaccum, and will colapse if they're not in good condition.  I had to steal a 90deg. from Mark's MKIV.  I haven't found a suitable part-store replacement.

Next, check that the idle screw is not vibrating out of place.  Back it out until you get about 1250-1300 rpm at warm idle.  1k rpm was just too low for mine.  Seems to go great with a nudge over 1200, occasionally drops to 1k, which doesn't bog.


Glad to hear that was a better deal than I thought.  I was a ball-hair from calling about it.  If he's got any more dubs, we need him in the club.
