Hydro/Solid lifters (was somehow: Upshift Relay)

Yep me thinks you are wrong.  My 86 had solid lifts.
In fact, Sciroccos always had solid lifters.
Only exception being 16V models.
I guess had something to do with A1 chassis.  Scirocco chassis never changed
over entire production run from mids 70's to late 80's.  Sheet metal did,
not chassis.
Far as I know, the 1.8 8V roc's were all JH code motors.  Very nice motors.
Not big on power, but you can beat the hell out em with no adverse affects.
