I fitted a Accuspark kit to my 1978 Mk1 Scirocco, fairly straightforward to fit the kit, hardest bit was finding a 12v power supply from the fuse box which was still powered when the engine was on the starter motor.

Something like this, check you get the right kit for which make of distributor you have fitted to the car.

Not 100% sure for your car but when I changed mine I kept the original coil.
