    Good point. The one link I found (and posted) is plans to a pretty simple one that should work just fine. I just may have to make one, because I can't

    Driver's footbox tight

    Ok. Sorry for the confusion. If you have a Mk4 from the past couple years, you have the latest footbox (on both sides) which is essentially maximized.

    You are interpreting the total advance correctly, base is 17, 38 total, all in by 3500. I'm with Mike, 38 total seems a bit too advanced but do you have

    Looks good - I would drop the advance 3 degrees for 35 degrees total and keep an eye ear on it.

    Those number all look real good, but I believe that 14 should be your idle advance and that would bring your top (all in) advance to about 36... These

    I'll put the choke back on at some point, probably.

    So, that done, now I'm back to the timing. :-)

    Jeff,
    I think the original mk4 panel had more foot room/less engine room. Probably ask for that one.
