    Help Diagnosing Clutch Issue

    Hey guys, been a loooong time. I guess it's not a bad thing considering the car has been so bullet proof the last couple of years. Today I was driving on the highway, shifted from 4th to 5th like any other time, as I was letting the pedal go I felt a sort of ping through the pedal, I knew right...

    Time to beat a dead horse. GTB selection for BEW.

    Alright guys, last one I swear. I'm delving into the thought of replacing my current 17/22 for something with more flow and less EGT. I'm planning on towing a small trailer as well so keep that in mind as well. With my current set up the car is solid, drives well spools nice and quick. But on...

    Feeler: 17/22 (BEW) --- 2.5" Stainless Downpipe

    Another MKIV hitch question

    Planning on buying a boler to tow behind my Jetta. I've done lot of reading with no definitive answers as to "the best" solution as there are variables to what people tow. Boler generalized weight is 1000lbs dry but for loaded and age rate let's say 1500. Generally classified they recommend a...

    BEW W\ 17/22. Water meth question

    Mods in sig, EGTs are through the roof in the summer time and I'm considering an ultralight trailer for camping. 1000lb dry weight. I'm concerned about mountain driving through BC. EGTs are pretty high with a loaded car already. How much of a lower am I potentially looking at if I go the water...

    Converting "smart" actuator back?

    Hey guys, my daughter's turbo popped today, and I have the opportunity to purchase a darkside kit locally for my own car. Being that my 17/22 is for a BEW I'm wondering if you can convert it backwards to a regular vacuum actuator for the ALH. Thanks.

It was bouncing around from 800 to 1400, then down to 300, then nothing, then back up again. Also I seemed to be able to control it with...
