Re: [T3] Stock FI with a bigger engine, was... 74/78 crank

I'll just throw this in here now............

I have just ordered a 2110cc.
(I know,I know.should have built it myself but time(second shift)
and the weather(Central New York) are not kind to me.I'll be going through
with a fine tooth comb just the same)

Been seaching for info on retaining the stock D-jet.Found some
 info but not enough detail tosuit me.I would guess I'll be doing hit
 and miss testing.Won't betoo bad,I should think.
I have collected some parts for the
Porsche D-jet.MPS,injectors(0 280 150 038) and new seals.
I'm concerned that the size of the VW "throttle body" may be
a limiting factor,though.Increasing the bore will just introduce
other problems...
