Forwarded back to the list, for general consumption. It's always best to do 
that, rather than divert messages just to me.

If you can get all the FI parts, you might want to just consider this. The

You'll have to keep asking on this list, and perhaps on the aircooled VW 
newsgroup. Be sure to mention where you are located. Yes, you may have a 
long wait. Remind us again what you have and why you want a new engine. 
Remember to include the year of your car, what you want, and where you are 
located in every message that you send back to the list (not just to me.)
