    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.

    Took photos of camshaft... Haven't the foggiest ideas of how to post them...

    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...

    License revoked - anyone have this happen?

    And if that had been offered as a solution to make my dongle functional when I called them, I would have paid $99 to register it to me and get tech support rights transferred to me. The only solution I was suggested was to contact the registered owner or buy a new one.

    License revoked - anyone have this happen?

    I think i was originally on 17.something when I first bought it. I know current version doesn’t work and I went back to the old one and it still doesn’t work. You would think I’d learn to just literally never update anything... Maybe if I went waaaay back to like 11.11 I might be able to get...

    License revoked - anyone have this happen?

    No response from the previous owner in my PMs, but its not really his responsibility - he sold me a perfectly functioning cable that i used several times. Ross-Tech chose to disable it well after i bought it, and offered no explanation and no solution other than buying a new VIN LIMITED...

    02 Golf HE221W "Build" thread

    I had never really considered EMP opening the gate as a real possibility... kinda thought it was a myth... lol I’ve been using 5200 as my rev limit. Figured a 500rpm bump was safe. I’m a bit scared of seeing 6k on the dash...

    02 Golf HE221W "Build" thread

    Nitec: the wastegate actuator is literally not attached to anything. It shouldn’t open ever. Unless you think I need to literally wire the lever shut... Busted bolts: I had a 6cm and swapped to the TD04HL 5cm. It wasn’t night and day but it went from lazy 3k spool to pretty good 2600 spool. I’m...
