    I need a reference on where to go for electrical work on the gti. Its gotta be a shop thatll work with a car with a different motor in it, obv not autohaus, they dont want my beast :p. Please someone send me the hookup, i got my front end on its way, and a hookup with the alternator, so once the front end is situated im gonna get her wired up and runnin, finally. So please, the closer to the southtowns (WS) the better. Lemme know some good shops please.

    cmon the sooner i get this goin the sooner i can bring her to taffys to show you people my flame show, flood the carbs a tad and crank her over, watch the flames shoot out about 10-15"s each barrel :p , just ask woody i burnd her arm with it.



    Thanks, Shrives

    ugh dude im going no where with it. Everything is wired up cept for a tiny part of the ignition, which i cant figure out. Everything works, fuel pump, starter, everything, cept i cannot get spark or and signal from the distributor to ignition, or vice versa i dunno. All i know is my ignition and coil is good, but im not getting spark in the plugs/wires. Somethin isnt getting signal somewhere, and i know my ignition is wired up wrong. i dont know how to do it right. once i have spark she will fire up, simple as that. ive been lookin at the same problem for 2 months and im fed up. someone hand me a tissue please. or if someone is very good at wiring i will pay you generously for your time if you can help me make progress. shouldnt be anymore than the ignition, distributor. seriously if i dont have to take it anywhere i wont, lemme know, i will pay you. the only place that touched my baby is athol, and it was just once.

    Didn't Athol work on this car for a bit? Why not take it there or are you trying to find a person who isn't gonna charge shop rates?

    If I were still in B-LO I'd help out, but Im down south now. If you have the necessary wiring diagrams you can figure it out. I had no clue on electrical before the corrado project began, and after staring at schematics for hours, it suddenly clicked and now I am fairly proficient with them.


    It can be done, but requires patience.

    ok assholes its been over 3 years.. and i didnt start it on fire.. the ignition switch shorted out and 2 weeks after the car went to the junkyard VW posted a recall on it!!!!!!!!... Question: how many statetrooper/kenmore/tonawanda/buffalo/orchardpark/amherest ect police cars have you seen burned up??? none.. i wired half of the police force around here when i worked at FM communications doing the light bars, all the radios, strobes and flashers....not one has had a problem that i know of...

    yea, but when it comes to the point of me just staring at it everytime i go out to try again, i think its time for help. i have the wiring diagram off of people from the vortex who have done this before, but im having a huge brainfart, and wiring is my huge setback in cars. sux i wish you were still local cuz i heard you were the guy to go to for this kinda thing, thanks though
