My original 1983 Rabbit GTI (owned 1983-1987)

 

For the engine management system I have chosen what I beleive to be the most advanced ECU available in the market today: the Holly HP EFI system. It is a self-learning/mapping system that senses all fuel to air ratios via a wideband O2 sensor - this is a really powerful and unique feature.

 

 

Here is a partial list of features:

 

I picked up the complete ECU system (sourced from Kinsler Injection) - boy there are a lot of wires that will need to be connected. I also picked up the remaining engine sensors and plumbing components from Techtonics ... - May 3, 2014

 

NOS Wizards Quadranoid, a dry flow nozzle, and small ID plastic tubing ...

 

I am epoxy coating the fuel tank before installation - July 20, 2014

 

With the final painting complete I can now get on with planning and executing the fuel and brake system installation - August 17, 2014
