If you are worried about limp mode, convert to mechanical and ditch all the electronics.

ALH is very easy to 'fix' by deleting codes from the computer's binary

get the $20 silver MPPS cable on ebay and 'find' winOLS software, get an account on ecuconnections forum and search the internal code numbers on there
There are some things that you can't eliminate from the harness like the N75 valve (or at least I haven't figured out how to eliminate them from the program)

What codes is it setting? (not 4 digit P0xxx codes, but the other 5 digit ones that the vag-com spits out)

Like I said in our email exchange, it's setting an underboost code which is the reason it is going into limp mode.

You need to fix the problem with the setup that's causing it to underboost..

Are you referring to this one?
Why do you specify silver?

the blue one is vag-com, it can't edit anything meaningful
silver one is mpps, it can do anything you want, if you can figure it out in the binary

underboost codes can be removed easily, very common thing to do when going to wastegated turbos. Mine has the underboost and overboost codes removed and the SVBL set higher than the MAP sensor will read. Actually, still using the stock MAP sensor at 45 psi, because the fueling is all MAF controlled on mine.

Yup.

It's going into limp mode to protect the engine and/or turbo from damage, because the ECU has lost control of the turbo. Worth solving!
