I've been looking around for parts for my new project...87 GTi 16v...i would like some advice on some good performance parts to get and also rebuild parts...the cheaper the better...I bought this car about a month ago for $400...it had 16s on it which are now on my golf...neuspeed springs, bilstein shocks, abd racing shortshift kit, and a eurosport cool flo...i am already planning to get a TT cat back and eliminating the cat...anyone know a good header for a decent price? The reason I need rebuild parts is for the sloppy shifter and the blown headgasket...thanks for any help

york is more central pa. I'm less than an hour from york and a long way from Pittsburg. I know what you meen about your girlfriend. My fiance hates hearing about cars all the time. So i just talk to my 2 year old. He doesn't understand but he seems so impressed when you tell him things about them. And he loves to sit on my lap and look at pics. A dubber in the making
