The thermocouple for my EGT gauge has been dead for about 5 months. I ordered a new one from McNally today.

I like this little bracket that they are selling on FixMyVW.com


It's nice to see GTiTDi's hardwork and creativity making it in the world. He has the originals on his site for sale now.

After having both an ALH and AHU tdi corrado i found the fuel economy was better out of the ALH. The AHU harness is plug and play. That's why I suggest to combo above.

Do go on Frank Still a rare swap and hoping to do one myself someday (fantasy pipe dreams of when I have infinite time). S&P has some stuff in the works, got a guy in rural Texas running one in his ranch Jeep, but haven't heard of many CR swaps yet.

That looks more like a 2004 to 2006 Pump Duse than a 2009+ Common Rail - still a nice motor though!

you are probably right, I stopped paying attention to TDIs after 2003.

My EGT thermocouple died back in July. I finally installed a replacement this week.

The failure was scary because it was telling me I was hitting 1850 degF on the interstate. I thought a nozzle could have been streaming but it was just the thermocouple. I checked it by looking at my injector balance with my old ISO-COM and it looked normal so I knew it was not a nozzle.

McNally really came through for me on service, above and beyond. Definitely, a positive referral for them.

I should be working on my car more now, unlike the last 2 years. I think 2018 is going to be a great year with hard work finally paying off and lots of changes in life!!!

Merry Christmas!

There's a sweet deal on a 1991 blue Corrado with BBS rims and and 1998 Jetta TDI in Charleston if anyone is interested. I bet someone could bake something nice out of that. I can give you the contacts if interested.

My PP520 nozzles are worn out at ~190,000 miles. I have more smoke and my fuel economy average has plummeted to 52 MPG. I am planning to install some PP764's soon. My lady is going to be getting new PP520's on her Golf first though. What a lucky lady! That car is a dog with the automatic nozzles and a 10mm pump. That will be done this weekend. The Corrado with the stock turbo and pieced together intake, I am going to knock the fueling back until the SDI long runner intake and air to water intercooler go in. I think I will also do a GT20 turbo for improved efficiency and better top end performance while still limiting it to 20 PSI. I JUST WISH IT WAS NOT SO COLD HERE!
