I have a 94 Golf III and I have new Taylor plug wirea and I have removed the mid muffler. I run an Amsoil air filter in the stock box. My car has a rough idle. Any suggestions? I have new bosch platinum spark plugs in it(well about 15,000 miles on them). I don't know what to do to get the idle to smooth back out...

help!!!

When did the problem start to happen? If it happened after you put the plug wires on, it could be that you have a bad wire. This would cause it to arc and give the rough idle as well as poor performance. Open your hood at night, so its dark in the engine bay, and start the car. Rev the engine and if you see electrical current then you have a bad wire.

I would suggest taking off you distributor cap and taking a look at it. If it is at all corroded, it could easily cause your engine to run rough.
