    FS: O2A (Mk3) DieselGeek Short Shift, AHU & ALH Pump Cores

    I misremembered the ALH pump size. I just pulled the part numbers and looked it up and it's the 10 mm.

    AHU/ALH Crank Sensor?

    I'm having an FPGA built to read the AHU & ALH's timing wheel. I have some questions about how it's setup. The sensor is a variable reluctance sensor. Is the timing wheel 32-1 (32 'teeth' with 1 missing tooth) or another setup?

    If you're looking for a company to never donate back to TDIClub (even for raffles) and doesn't stand behind any of their products I couldn't suggest anyone more than ECSTuning.

    Vendor Accountability Thread

    It's been 10 days. I'm leaving for a week long trip Wednesday night. I would like to have a hatch that holds itself open. Is there any vendor accountability in this thread?

    I feel like I have learned too much in the last year. Can you suggest another ECS product to inflict head trauma?. I all ready tried the Mk4 Rear Hatch Pop Kit. A+++ Would cause head damage again. Looking for something a bit cheaper.

    ECS Mk4 Rear Hatch PopKit. Computer. Hello Computer. I finally want to get my rear hatch working again after buying the gloriously defective ECS Mk4 Rear Hatch Popkit. From the product review on TDIClub I'm not the only person that has had this product fail on me. It's been just over a year...

    EA288 TDI engine review, real life MPG

    I like that you can replace that with any (year) and (year+1) across engine changes. Dig deep enough and there are people that are questioning the ALH. Wait for the last model year + 1 to see if there are hardware changes and then wait until the next release cycle. It's no different than Apple...

    ALH vacuum pump leak and concerns

    Finally, a recent thread. I'm having the same problem. I finally have a clutch that will hold my tune and now I've been noticing more and more oil around the entire head cover. I wrapped my vacuum pump and CCV can each with a red rag and noticed the vacuum pump one had the most oil, although...

    2002 Jetta TDI Wagon Manual

    What is your secret for a "no rust" vehicle in MI after 14 years? Because I've seen '12s and '13s with rusted out parts. I'd hate to turn my '03 into one of those vehicles. Also, sunroof? Interested. I just got the "Ooo, that looks pretty" look from my wife as well.
