Yes, I used the same gauge on my Rover pump as I used on my old 1.6. The threaded adapter was different though - larger pump plunger = larger adapter.

I think most of the interest is for EMPs and SHTF. Though there could might maybe possibly be a downside to having the only working car during the apocalypse.

Sucks, but I have a feeling most tuners are just enthusiasts, who have normal day jobs.

I'm guessing you'll lose the speedo, cruise and some other cluster functions if the ECU isn't seeing the E IP.

I was looking at my Landy pump. I was just thinking find a correct brake fitting and tap the hole to the gauge holder's threads.

I ended up buying a Mantra holder for about $20, which isn't bad considering it shipped from Snap-On. The site I ordered it from, didn't mention Snap-On.

The junk ebay holder was a pain to use.

My AAZ Rabbit will be one of them.

Cruise and the tach will be gone without the ECU, the rest of the gauges and the speedo will keep working fine though. The ECU can be left in place without the electronic pump, that'll keep the tach working.

Had Matt Phelan take care of a couple of items on the B4V last Monday.

I had been chasing a low boost issue for a while. Matt found it and fixed it in an hour. The inlet hose to the intercooler had a crack in it. He used a radiator hose to fabricate the replacement boost hose. Also solved a small fuel leak to the injectors and reseated all the injectors. (I caused the leak trying to reseat the injecters without the proper tool). Lastly, he cleaned, lubed and adjusted the lock on the rear hatch. Total repair time was two and a half hours.

Now I can reinstall the plastic panel on the tailgate and replace the tailgate struts.

It was good to catch up with Matt again. Nice to have the car running well again.
