5 WAYS TO MAKE IT BETTER
1 ADD A STRUT BRACE
Factory Scirocco 16vs had a brace between the lower wishbones, called a K-bar. Adjustable versions are now available from specialists; they cost £30-100, are easy to fit and really sharpen up the handling.
2 BEEF UP THE BRAKES
Fitting a Golf 16v MkII master cylinder and servo will increase pedal feel and make everything feel more reassuring. Everything slots more or less straight on, although you have to change a few pipes; allow 90 minutes to do it. Cost: £42.
3 HEADLAMP WIRING LOOM
The Scirocco doesn’t have a relay in the headlight circuit which guarantees voltage loss. Fitting one between the switch and headlamps means that more power gets through and the headlights will be noticeably brighter. Kits are available that just plug in and cost anywhere between £25 and £40.
4 EXHAUST UPGRADES
The standard exhaust doesn’t sound all that fruity, so owners tend to replace rusty pipes with an uprated Jetex system. There are various systems available with either a 2.0in or 2.5in bore. Prices range from £240-345.
5 WEBER CARBURETTOR
Non-injected Sciroccos used a Pierburg carburettor whose automatic choke becomes unreliable over time. The answer is to fit a manual choke Weber carb, which just bolts straight on. Expect to pay around: £150-200 for parts.
