    Wanted: rear tinware over gearbox

    That's it. Literally spot welded to a Beetle piece. If you got some original beetle tin ware you will have a very nice bit. Are there any good repop versions these days of the beetle part? My last bay I used a repop and it was crap Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk

    Wanted: rear tinware over gearbox

    I paid about 100 for mine. I suspect I was ripped off. But there was someone on here doing the extension for the beetle piece. Alot cheaper. I'd recommend that. Sent from my SM-N910F using Tapatalk

    Are genuine Mexican Bosch vacume dizzy's good quality?

    7.5 btdc is idle timing at stock idle rpm. by all means check the timing at idle but you send svda at full advance. ie over 3000 rpm with the vac line blocked. should be set to about 28-30. i'd personally try 30 take it for a blast some hills if it pinks.. drop it by 1
