    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?

    First suggested swap?

    So my beloved Mk3 is off the road with a dead engine. I have a 3 month (possibly longer) layoff coming up AND just so happen to have myself a brand new pole barn (to me) that I'm going to setup shop in. I've never rebuilt an engine before so if it's salvageable I plan this to be my foray...

    Anyone considered a Miller cycle?

    Just wondering if anyone has worked out the math for doing a Miller Cycle on their TDI. It would require custom cams and 2 turbos (low and high pressure)

    Another Mk3 off the road.

    Eulogy by my wife: Mk3 Jetta died on I-94 Southbound just past the Michigan/Indiana state line on Thursday, June 26th at approximately 5:15pm with 284,539mi on her odometer. She ultimately succumbed to a water pump failure which led to a seized engine. Jetta was a carefree, roll-with-the-punches...

    [Review]: ECS Mk4 Rear Hatch Pop Kit

    Perhaps you've seen the ECS Tuning hatch pop kit. (Product Link) The premise is simple, you press your hatch release and it automagically opens your hatch for you! (Video). Great for groceries, pets, hit men. Installation: Installation is straightforward. Well, except for the design flaw. The...

    MAF-less tunes

    Can anyone explain to me why most people still use MAF tunes? MAF is really only useful as a diagnostic and tuning tool (at least where I've used it). I know most large engines don't use MAF, it's just a cheap and easy way to diagnose if your EGR is working. (Speed Density-EGR = MAF). Plus it's...

    Comprehensive Pinout Spreadsheet?

    Has anyone put together a comprehensive pinout spreadsheet? I'm primarily looking for the ECM and IP connection right now for both ALH (121-pin) and AHU (55-pin?) but BEW, and CR too (in the future). I've seen a few incomplete ones but I was just hoping someone had already done the work...

    WTB Dead ALH or AHU ECM, cheap

    If you have one of those dead ECMs I'd like to buy it. Either an ALH or AHU. TE has the 121 pin but I can't find it for sale anywhere: As long as the connector is intact I don't care too much about the rest of it.

    Electric cooling pump

    So my wife just got a Nissan leaf. Among other things that are nice is the ability to set a desired cabin temperature before departure. Now a TDI coolant heater is great, but just warms up the coolant. You need someway to make it circulate through everything. And then just wire up your fan to...

    Wanted 10/11mm ALH Injection Pump

    Cheap preferred. High Miles fine if it works. I think my 2003 Golf's IP ate itself @160k. My '98 Jetta is still kicking at 283k so high miles don't scare me but I want to make sure it's the IP before I go drop a boat load on an 11mm pump or refurbished 10mm pump. If the pump was working and...

    Lift/Inline Pump Options

If some people could help me fill in the unknowns. PD In-Tank Lift Pump. Make: VW Availability: IDParts BoraParts...

    PayPal Alternatives

    So there are numerous people out there (and the number is growing) that refuse to use PayPal, my self included. If you'd like my own horror story I can post it but in the mean time there is: 1) The obvious is writing a check and mailing it, but I know checks are going out...

    Nissan forums like TDIClub?

    What are the best forums for figuring out *** is going on with my fiance's 2005 Nissan. Or if anyone is so privy to these little @(*boxes. It's a 2005 SE with the 1.8. When I was driving it home today it just died. No warning no stutter just died. Then it refused to restart. I walked the fun 2...

    [ALH] Air getting where it shouldn't be and diesel fuel not staying where it should

    Saturday I woke up to a non-starting car. I finally traced it to the pump not being primed. After some coaxing with the shop vac (no mity vac) I got the car started. Shut it off. Started it again. Went about my business and 4 hours later it wouldn't start. Repeated the process and got out to...
