I have posted a couple of new photos on my site here:


In the comparison of the AAN and ADU fuel rails, be advised that the AAN
fuel rail mounting tabs are not as stock.  One has been bent to see if it
would line-up with the RS2 IM mounting holes and the other tab has been
removed altogether.  The photos are best used to compare the inlet and
outlet locations.  We are about to get a stock AAN fuel rail and I will
update the comparo photos at that time.

There is another photo showing the mounting location of the after-run pump
and some other good stuff.

There are a couple of photos of the still-in-progress conversion to vacuum
assisted brakes, using the vacuum booster from an Audi 80.

Worthless weight trivia:

The complete ABS system weighs 16 lbs, 9.5 oz.  The pump itself weighs an
even ten pounds.  Aside from that, the wiring that I parsed from the car
(HVAC, alarm, central lock, radio, seats, windows, sunroof) weighs 18 lbs,
the A/C head unit weighs 1 lbs (15.5 oz, actually), and the cruise control
vacuum pump weighs 1.5 lbs. for a total loss of ~37 lbs, which is only one
small part of a much larger weight loss program.
