Thank you :) So a bit like the AFN vs AHH then where the lower power engine has a bigger pump. For emissions maybe?
280hp would be plenty tbh. I have found a couple of posts suggesting the BV50 is a bit of a pain to swap because of it's actuator so I'll probably leave it mostly alone apart...
I'm picking up an A4 B7 3.0TDI with a blown tiptronic next week as a donor car for something. It has the 201hp BKN engine rather than the 229hp ASB I was expecting. What is puzzling me is what the difference is between the two engines?
As far as I can tell from Etka, they have the...
The AFN has its advantages too - its already set up for longitudinal mounting and has a steel sump, and is much simpler than the other choices. It'll make >200hp easily enough and the electronics are nice and simple - I reckon you could have it running on a dozen wires car-side if you leave the...
Total price shipped to the US is £290GBP including the pulley or £285GBP without it (its heavy!). If you already have an ALH pulley you can save the price of a beer :D
At current exchange rate that's about $388USD with pulley or $381 without.
Hi all, selling my spare OE 11mm injection pump 038130107J. A good used pump from a mk4 Golf auto with original 10-pin connector. Price includes shipping within the UK, but happy to ship worldwide at cost.
Any questions please ask :)
All the 68 and 80 pin AFN ecus are chip swaps like the 1Z and AHU.
There are apparently some 121 pin port tunable versions for the AFN & AVG engines in the run-out B5 and C5 models, but I've never actually found one.
Well it opens up a whole load of more interesting or modern turbos like the...
Do you mean convert 1Z to AFN to use the VNT turbo? Like Mongler said, 1Z=AHU - both wastegate turbo.
Yes, you can do that if you use AFN software and AFN N75 valve. 028906021GG AHU ecu will probably take AFN software, but its easier to just swap to an AFN ecu (like 026906021GH). I have one...
The B5 A4 has exactly that:
This has foam underneath. (ok its a Passat, but same thing!)
The PD130 has an even bigger cover:
The PD also has a block of foam about 1.5" square all the way round the top of the cam cover.
Also, its hard to see on that middle pic ^, but the whole upper...
One of the tuners, I think maybe Mark Malone, mentioned it was possible to configure the ECU to run the engine at constant speed. I was thinking about a standby generator application, but this would be much the same I guess, power output notwithstanding.
Look for the starter and flywheel from a B5.5 Passat TDI (BHW). Thats mounted under the exhaust manifold and will fit an ALH fine. You'll probably want the pressed steel flange thing between engine and gearbox too, to get the bellhousing pattern.
Thinking about it, the dual mass flywheel might...
