Are you doing the all metal version of the heater core from the B5 cars? It requires a little manipulating of the pipes to fit properly and some custom work where the core fits against the cowl opening but it might be worth it. There are write-ups about it on Vortext or maybe here too, can't say I've seen one.

My cars will get the metal core going forward. I have one that will be going into the Jetta this summer and the project GTI needs a core too, which will be metal. I'm just tired of the failing seal on the cores with plastic end / fittings.
