Not entirely true. The early 10 tooth first gear in a VW trans isn't very strong, but the later 9 tooth is more than enough for any street car. I've seen them survive 300+hp with drag slicks.

Don't put your brake light anywhere above the rear window, it's illegal. Only cops, ambulance, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles are allowed to have lights on the roof.

Only "some"? What other gearbox do you think early 911s had?

In fact, all 71 and earlier 911s and 912s came with a 901 gearbox. If you are going to install a 901 into a VW, the 914 is not a good...

Many shock suppliers have only one shock for swing axle and IRS. Problem is, the IRS shock needs the longer bushing. Some supply 2 spacers (kyb). Others make shocks that are specific.

If it grinds while you are stopped, it is your clutch adjustment. You have too much freeplay.

Welding the seams will do very little. VWs don't develop stress cracks at the spot welded joints, therefore the spot welds are plenty strong enough.

That increase in track is totally due to the 944 brakes. The steel 944 TAs have exactly the same dimensions as a stock Bug IRS TA.

Those are probably people who drive as if they have their grandmother in the car all the time.

Not true. A 7x15 CC has exactly the same offset as a 7x15 Fuchs, and I have those on the front of my car. Beam is chopped 3.75" and if I was to do it all over again, I would go no more than 2.75-3"
