Re: All CIS fuel distributors alike?

The letter code does mean that they are different. In some cases, it might hook
up fine, but then it will not fit the air box. Also keep in mind that there are
4 cyl and 5cyl versions. Your CGT will take one from the following:

84-87 4kq
85-87 2.2l 5k
85-87 2.2l CGT
85-88 VW Quantum

The urq as follows:

82-84 urq
80-83 5kt
