Slow and Low Rabbit

howdy all

Long time VW modder/driver... simple little beat to hell 1981 Rabbit 1.7L. Through the years I have repaired just about everything imaginable, and pushed the anemic low compression engine from a meager 20-25MPG to a more respectable 25-30+. I want MOAR!

If you describe what you've done so far and maybe post a few pictures, you're more likely to get useful responses.
