very interesting, the cam sensor, what is it seeing on the cam that triggers it?

just stripped my WBX donor some more today, i find it very interesting to see how that differ from a T1

How did you convert the case to through bolts? I thought there was an oil galley in the way?

I drilled and tapped the cam gear then red locktighted an 8mm allen head bolt into it. The allen head is on the cam side of the gear and the threaded end is ground flush to give a better surface. IF memory serves me correctly, I think that I ground it until I had .050" air gap from the bolt to the sensor while all was setup in one case half.

Good catch! I used the wrong terminology! I should have said case studs! The six large studs that are there now are larger diameter and better material than stock. (And not cheap!)
