Maybe a problem with the cluster. Which one are you using? Passat TDIs have a prblem with speedo and tach burning out. I have one now speedo stopped working.

don't worry about the passat cluster failing. I paid one of the guys on tdiclub $60 shipped to convert an OB2 Passat Vr6 MFA cluster to a TDI and he put the correct mileage on it and replaced the voltage regulator.

Well this week i laid a very close friend to rest 46 years old and had a massive heart attack. I will miss him dearly

Im finishing up the radiator and have to get my resivor tank in for my intercooler and then to the machine shop to finish the throttle pedal mount and the hydraulic clutch linkage finished up. Can anyone tell me if a mk4 n75 valve is better than the 1Z? Or should i just stick with the origional or does it make a differen e

That sucks, way too early in life.

The mk4 N75 is for a vacuum setup which is for VNT turbos. I plan to convert my car to a mk4 N75 when I do the VNT turbo but I will also have the ECU programmed for the mk4 N75 valve.

Use the original N75 or buy a new one for $50 from Idparts.com
