It's to talk to someone that actually had one apart. It could be possible that the first one or two were different and the production models have standard parts. It was published by VW Power that the one they drove had these parts and it was a VWMS demo Limited they were driving. VWMS was all about drive-ability with their road cars.
People tend to think of VWMS as the race division of VWaG but they did a whole lot more. They restored all the cars in the VW musuem and some of the older ones at the Audi Museum. They did special orders meaning you could order a 16v G60 in any body if you had the money. Thet even built the support vans that followed all their race teams (130hp LT van FTW) and most important. They were the think tank. They were coming up with many combinations that never seen the light of day. The offical title was "Special Edition department".
I have a bunch of VWMS, Seat Motorsport & Audi Sport p/n's on PDF as well.
I'll post up most of what i have but i've pretty much have a feel on what VWMS was doing between 85 & 95 (when they changed the program). Knowing VWMS, i highly doubt the Limiteds got a standard 16v especially when VWMS has finer tolerance then the cars coming out the factory. Keep in mind these were all hand built including the engine. This goes with any hand built cars.

Dreadz, whatever you've been smoking, please pass it
Here is a tid bit for you. All engines and cars are hand assembled by all manufacturers. Robots can't assemble a block or cylinder head so it is all done by hand at the factory. Regardless whether it is a Ferrari or a Ford. Only difference being that at AMG for example one guy assembles the whole engine whereas at Honda it will be done on an assembly line and many people will assemble one engine. Robots also done assemble bolt on body panel, or seats or any interior/exterior trim. So all cars are hand assembled.
As for tolerances and such. Sorry. Most parts are regular VW/Audi parts, aside from the head which is a work of art (the porting work is gorgeous), exhaust manifold and some other VWMS specific parts like the lower belt pulley. I measured the bores and such and they did not differ in any way from a PL/KR 1.8 block dimensions.
Hi Guys, here is Andi from Austria, Owner of Ltd.060 and the Homepage http://www.vw-racing.org.
Nice to read the story and history of Limited 062, i know this car many years, i thought it was 1995/96 as i read that the original Limited was wrecked and the engine rebuild in a 3 doors shell with all the original parts and shell of the Limited!
I had 2 advertise of the Limited 062, that you can see on my website!
Maybe i will update Ltd.062 if the owner gives me the ok to do so, i look forward to hear from you!
If you are interessted i have the original software of the 235bhp Version of the Golf Limited that also was available from VW-Motorsport in order of customer choice!
Maybe you can sent me also the engine Number, so i can check if Ltd.062 was the original Car of this engine!
kind regards from Austria Andi

I saw this car at Waterfest, although I didn't realize what it was at the time! I just kept thinking "Why isn't this in the show field, it's better than everything else in there??".
I must have drooled over it for 10 minutes while I was wandering around the lot:
It's never worth it to show. Hell it's not even worth it to exhibit. They're both just paid parking, a little closer to the action.
Though I'd post an update of all the few things I've done so far in order to complete the car for H20.
Starting off with a custom X-haust running from the dual down pipe 'til the end with single outlet (my regret as I wanted a duel outlet to make it look like OEM. Will work on that over the winter).
Big thanks to a fellow dubber who did the welding and instalation of the exhaust for me as I suck big time at welding.
This is how it sounds:
Then I also got myself a VDO boost gauge as well as a SWG vent pod in order to blend things in. pretty happy of the general look at the end. And The G-lader is pushing proudly 11 PSI of boost.
Was lucky enough to get my hands on a VWM shifter knob and boot in a descent condition
And just because I feel like it and also because it took me a few hours of clean up to get the car ready for H20. Here is a walk around of the car:
