Just came across this on YouTube. Haven't watched the whole thing but it looks interesting. Thought I'd share.

I didn't watch all of it either but that type 4 engine looks badly carboned up from running cold and rich with that progressive on there.

I have watched a lot of Mustie1ís videos. This one is a fun one to watch, same with the follow up one. He talks to the camera like he is talking to you. He saves a lot of VW engines like a person on a very tight budget would do.

Give it a go and watch it!
