Once you stray away from stock configurations you are pretty much on 
your own. Now you get to become a carb expert. There are people here 
who can help you, but you may not find someone who has successfully 
sorted out exactly the same system that you have.

First off, the timing depends on the distributor, so you need to know 
what your distributor does, Time it so that it stays under 30-32 
degrees advance at its max. This may well be different from the stock 
timing at idle.

I think you can get Pertronix ignitions to fit any of the VW 
distributors, but the short cap distributors are a lot more crowded.
