Thanks man, You cant mess around with hacky electrical in a VW. Im sure the panel in the link was made in the same factory. As for the details the one I used is an Eaton. The whole panel is rated to 100 amps, each slot rated to 25 amps. I used a 10awg (Kind of wish i did 8awg but more then ok) wire fused and straight to the battery. Firewall holes on the B5 chassis are like finding unicorns. I already used the slot in the harness behind the ecu box for my boost gauge so i drilled a new hole coming in right behind the hvac box.Nice! Details on the fuse panel?
was it this one? https://www.amazon.com/6-Way-Blade-LED-Indicator-Protection/dp/B00QMTAZ1W/ref=sr_1_16?keywords=fuse+panel&qid=1572690616&sr=8-16
