gremlins: 1 Chris: 1

Hahaahaha! You stoopid fuel-injection gremlins, take THIS!

So, rather than buy several hundred dollars worth of fuel-injection parts, I'm going to SOUP UP my newly acquired VW Rabbit! I just won a complete Weber downdraft carburetor and intake system on eBay (where else does one shop for car parts?), and not only will this solve my starting and idling problems, but it will eliminate them for all time. Because I'm going Old Tech and pulling out all that German engineering maze of a mechanical fuel injection system. I spent enough time trying to troubleshoot it, and the minimum it would cost me to fix it up would be about $100. And there's no guarantee I wouldn't also need to replace a few $100+ items. So take that, silly Teutonic Gremlins!

Weeee! The irony is that this modification will not only add More Power (rahr!) but is actually cheaper than fixing the original fuel-injection setup. Go figure. Plus I won it for about 1/4 of the new price for this hot-rod setup. W00t!

Chris

My pappy said 'Son, you're gonna give me a habit
as long as you drive that hot... rod... Rabbit.


Doesn't work quite as well as Hot Rod Lincoln. Still, very cool... look forward to seeing the end result in its souped-up glory.

I was going to go with "One Piece at a Time," which is where I fear the Tale of Chris' Rabbit is heading. But, as mentioned before, I am projecting.

Dear Sir,
We believe you have violated our rights by scrapping the original system. Please return to the old way of doing things so that we have a competetive chance.

Sincerely,

The Gremlins

Hee, hee! It'll have a fighting chance against, say, a Pony Car. Just don't try to race any tortoises.
