87 1.8l 16v GTI **fuel pump help needed**

Postby TerminalN8er » July 10th, 2014, 2:03 am

Hello. I am new to DasDubbers but thought I would throw it out there.... I am in need of the frame mounted fuel pump housing that is stock on an '87 GTI (specifically a 16V is what concept 1 said). I am aware that this engine set up is rare but looking for possible helpful hints. Maybe someone has done a setup without the "box"...

That box is a surge tank.. lift pump in the tank fills the surge tank witch feeds the high pressure pump. They aren't that rare. One off of a 16v passat will work for you.. check pick n pull there's always a 16v passat in there..

Thanks for your reply. Did the passat come with a 1.8l 16v? I was under the assumption that this is a "kr" engine. The guy at concept 1 said specifically 85-87 1.8l 16v is the only compatible option. I'll be stoked if the passat option works well. That sounds easy! I appreciate the help man.

The passat came with 9a 16v or a vr6.. any of the 16v ones will work. I'm assuming that your 16v is running cis.

I'm not sure exactly. I kinda stumbled onto this car and it's growing on me, but I think it's TB'd and not injected. I get the car back from inspection tomorrow so I can then start my own inspection. One thing for sure is I've got to stop the fuel from pissing outta that box and the passat option sounds like a good place to start!
