    Brake Response of Hydroboost vs PM vs Vacuum

    PM went out. Tried vacuum, had MANY issues - however other local owners like the vacuum. Found an 84 & installed it - very pleased, it is nowadays more popular & would cost less than the almost $600 I have in it (rebuilt the unit, braided stainless lines, etc). Have heard of going non power...

    GBodyParts new GN wheels and LS1 front brakes

    Installed 12" Baer years ago on the T. T aluminium wheels would not fit without a 1/8" spacer. 84 & 85 GN aluminium fit with no issues, blasted the black paint off & they look like original T wheels. Also had rears widened to 9.5" & wear on 275 50 15 is superior (as is handling with 25 - 30...

    Toyo Proxes TQ Experience

    DO NOT RUN TOYO!!!! Tried a set & first time on damp (not wet) spun 720*. Currently running Nitto 275 50 15. Want to run an all weather tire, however, want 275 or 295 x 15. Only all weather in that size I find is Mickey Thompson& unable to get owner feedback. Drag radials don't like highway driving.

    powermaster replacement??

    /tried the vacuum & blew the diaphragm twice - had a 1 way valve which probably leaked, changed it & still blew the diaphragm - fool me once & twice, but not 3 times. Many local owners like vacuum. Hydro-boost resolved all issues & even gives more line pressure than any other type - HB is used...

    Cupbolder for centre console...

    A cup holder off a 95 Passat works great. It's already black (painted mine to match the T type interior. It slides up on the drivers side of the console & folds up when not in use to less than an inch thick. Bought mine from the local VW dealer years ago, don't know about current availability.

    How wide can I take T rims?

    Had True Design in Colorado widen my T/84 85 aluminium rims to 9.5". 295x15 50 fit, 325x50 need some fender rolling. Look almost original. Went with 84/85 GN rims to clear Baer brakes - T rims required a spacer.

    1986 GN brake upgrade ?

    I believe the early 86 had hydroboost. This would make a hydroboost conversion an original upgrade. I got a hydroboost off an 85 & it works much better than the PM (did have it rebuilt - more $). It was a pricey upgrade, however I've seen them listed for about the same as the vacuum kits. I...

    Narrowing stock t-type wheels??

    Had my 84 & 85 refurbished about 10 years ago by Truedesign in Colorado. Talk to Jim. Excellent work. Did not narrow, however, had them widened to 9.5" - look great & reasonably priced.
