    Oh, wow, I completely misread the date. For some reason I was thinking this thread was a couple months old. My bad!

    Fuelab lift pumps - Interest for potential group buy?

    Did you ever find out what the issue with the pump was? Did this move to another thread that I haven't found yet? :D

    Old rallyvw TDI at pittsburgh would of wheels

    Wow, my first post on TDIClub in nearly two years! :o I can tell you the rational for switching out the twist beam axle was based mostly on durability. We've tried a number of different methods to strengthen that rear beam. Tried the VWRacing method, tried custom plates to give more...

    Depends on your definition of very cold weather. With the temps we see in Pittsburgh, including what we see tomorrow, down to -20C or so, never had a problem in the 5 years I've had a TDI. Full glow cycle, then crank, it fires up. Rough for the first second or so, then settles down as the...

    2008 Rally WV BTW, if anyone is interesting in heading down to Rally WV let me know. It runs on both Aug 1 & 2. This will be my maiden voyage in the rally TDI, so it should be interesting. I've already got some folks heading down as both service crew and course marshall/HAM radio/control...

    For those who have Upgraded to the OEM VW NAVI

    So I someone PM'd me that their ABS controller had a 27 pin plug. Looking at the wiring diagrams for a 1999.5 Jetta, it looks like it has a 25 pin connector on the ABS controller. Let's assume the pin count was off by two. DFA-L/R should be available from pins T25/12 and T25/21 (pins 12 &...

    Left foot breaking=no trottle

    If you think that's annoying, the glowplug light will flash when you disconnect the brake signal from the ECU. Easiest fix is electrical tape. :D I just got used to it after a while. Usually I either don't need to look at the cluster, or spend more time looking at the drivers display of the...

    Left foot breaking=no trottle

    Apply or release? :) You're not going to loose anything applying or keeping the brakes steady. On release, there will be a little air sucked out of the booster. But between the resevoir and the vacuum pump (which will be working well since the engine is well over 2000 RPM), I don't think...

    Left foot breaking=no trottle

    I've installed a toggle switch (down by the ODB-II port) that when flipped, cuts the power to the ABS controller and disconnects the brake light from the ECU. This allows the brake lights to continue working, allows for left foot braking, and gets rid of the ABS. Left foot braking is also...

    For those who have Upgraded to the OEM VW NAVI

    T47a is indeed a wiring plug. It is the plug on the ABS control module in the engine compartment. Behind and below the airbox, on the drivers side fender. The only reason you would need to get at it would be to verify that the wires are there. If you manage to find them in the wiring...

    For those who have Upgraded to the OEM VW NAVI

    They automatically adjusted after three km or so. I was running guidance at the time, but I'm not sure if that's required or not. I don't even know how to adjust the pulses manually... Good question. I actually have everything set up so it's easy to switch back to the GALA feed to...

    For those who have Upgraded to the OEM VW NAVI

    Connecting ABS to Navi Just so happen that I do! In fact, I wired it up last night. Looking at this wiring diagram, you can see that DFA-L and DFA-R are what the navigation system would like (connected to T26/5 and T26/18). Right now, most people have GALA connected to DFA-L. This works...

    project: rally fever/ light bar

    Too much? Never! I saw this thread and figured I'd post what I had fabricated up. I was worried I might have gone overboard with what I put on, but after a few rallies, I don't think it's too much at all. View from the front: Side: Quarter shot (best shot I have of the mounting) (I had...
