Driving the hase

Jul 25, 2009 update on vweezly's 1982 Volkswagen Rabbit

I have been doing some datalogging and a bit of tuning and it turns out she’s pretty quick :) 3rd 4th and 5th gears are nice. It takes off. I still need to tune it so 1st and 2nd aren’t lean under boost. Another issue i need to resolve is my blow by. I guess all 16v turbos get it due to a lack of venting. I will be venting the valve cover with a New Beetle breather that threads into the valve cover where the oil cap is located. It will go to a catch can along with the crank case vent. Then no more smoke out the exhaust :D
