    CCV by-pass...photos how you did it?

    That car was retired for rust issues years ago now... if I recall correctly, I had the machined plate at the bottom, with a hydraulic hose going up to a "T" I had threaded onto the valve cover. From there it just went into the turbo inlet pipe. Later on I added a loop with a catch after the...

    Back after a long absence...

    I won't be just throwing $60 at it for a new N75, but I'll grab one off a parts car and give it a shot... I pulled the EGR. It was shut and looked normal, so I don't think it's sticking open, but like I said, a bit of grimy residue around the flange, so it may be bleeding some boost there...

    Back after a long absence...

    Ive got a folder with some records so I'll look, I didn't know it was 80k instead of 100k like ALH. It's probably due... Goin on vacation tomorrow so I'll have to look at it when I get back but really all I can think of at this point is some small boost leaks or bad N75 leaving the vanes open...

    Back after a long absence...

    I'm not really sure what "bad" looks like but this looks ok to me... I wouldn't really know though I guess. Yea the ebay turbo is not something I want to keep in there long term, but not a "change asap" item either. Probably a hybrid from Xman when he runs a special.

    Back after a long absence...

    Low boost issue is the top of the list. Man I hope it's not a camshaft.. lol. Going off the clip type connection on the ALH for its pancake pipe, which is pretty snug with very little wiggle, most of these are "OK" but 2 of them are sloppy loose. It's got an ebay turbo on it 😬 but the...

    Back after a long absence...

    Well, I've been away for a while, and I'm hoping some BHW gurus can get me up to speed... this is gonna be long winded, sorry in advance. Was kinda doing my own thing with ALH stuff... Mostly using FB groups for help, but I broke a block a few months ago through years of abuse and neglect and...

    License revoked - anyone have this happen?

    Thank you for clarifying what could have happened. Neither of those things seem to fall under the privacy concerns cited when I called though and I wish that those possibilities would have been brought up when I called. Obviously I knew I’m not entitled to support but simply saying that revoked...

    License revoked - anyone have this happen?

    no dice. this is version 17.8 (also had 18.2 and 19.6) and if i set the date too far back (2016) and vcds says its an implausible date and closes itself. set it to plausible date (a date after the version was released) and the license status is still revoked. tried VCDS-lite and it doesnt...
