Yeah, I agree on that crimping is probably what is intended here.
However, I want/need to do the crimping on the car. Meaning not on the work bench. What hand held tool has enough power to do that?...

There is surely room for improvement! ;-)

I can't remember the exact name of the short shift kit I got for it many years ago, but it sounded like J-West or s/th. At Pelican parts in the US you can find it in their webshop. Its the only one...

Nice! So, an even better speed would be very possible? :cool:

Nice! Cool to see the flat fanned T4 in there! Wicked combo in that awesome Ghia convertible.
Headers seem smallish for a 2,6ltr though, but maybe its just optical ;-)
