I recently acquired a German AJM PD engine for a project.
Part of the project is to upgrade the nozzles to PP1043 nozzles and have the nozzles properly installed and balanced. (and tune, of course :rolleyes:)
I've sent the injectors to DBW and learned that the pump piston and ball pin for...
I've been running a modded 1Z with a 68pin ECU in my Toyota truck for a few years. (Mods in sig)
Anyway, it recently bit the dust, triggering my "must be time to upgrade." :D
I'm going to replace it with a PD, controlled with an EDC15P+ ECU. I have a few questions to start, regarding the...
Some years ago, I did a 1Z/AHU swap into my Toyota truck. It's worked great until a few days ago, when It may have blown a piston, ring or something; I'm not sure yet.
I was looking at replacement options when the thought that "this could be an opportunity" came to my evil mind. :cool...
I know this isn't really a "power enhancement" problem, and its a pretty rare situation, but I'd like to hear from those who are running modded engines.
On a recent road trip, we stayed at 9000ft elevation. Temperatures dipped into the 40's F. It wasn't particularly cold, just high elevation...
I've been helping a friend with timing issues on a 1Z engine:
To make a long story short, the crank sprocket was loose and fell off when the bolt was removed.
Fortunately, the crank was ok, and only required a little clean up of the mating...
I just did a timing belt change for a friend's 1997 Jetta TDI.
I ONLY put on good components, and this job had an "Old Poopie" timing belt kit from Bleached Bora. It includes all OE parts with a new water pump. The...
Hello everyone! :)
A friend just purchased a non-running 1997 Jetta for a good price. I was asked to help him get it running since I know a little bit about the engine. Enough to be dangerous?? - we'll see...:D
I've gone through the "car won't start troubleshooting" section by whitedog...
I installed a spin-on remote oil filter adapter so I could move my oil filter to a more accessible place. This has got to be a common issue for swaps.
The problem is the ^%$#^%@ :mad::mad: thing leaks! Like a sieve. I know it's not just my installation, others are having the same problems...
I just stumbled onto this cool product - It's an LED light that will directly plug into the incandescent light sockets found on Toyotas. As you know, some of the indicator lights from the VW ECM must be LED's.
I soldered an led/resistor combo onto my instrument cluster to work around this...
Yesterday I was towing a trailer against a pretty stiff headwind, when a lowder than normal "hissing" sound come from the engine compartment. :confused: EGT at the time was between 1100F and 1200F. Boost was between 15psi and 18psi.
Then the exhaust note changed from it's usual hiss to a...
I thought I'd start a thread about adding a tachometer to a conversion.
In general, it shouldn't be too difficult. One just needs to be sure the signal put out by the ECM matches what the tachometer is expecting.
I am attempting to connect the stock tachometer on my Toyota...
I would like to discuss techniques for dialing in a big turbo upgrade. Any procedures are welcome. :)
As everyone knows, simply bolting it on and stomping on the throttle can lead to disasterous results.
I've read various forums about the importance of EGT's...

pump timing - properly setting an ALH pump's timing
I know this sounds like a nooob question, but there I need the help...
Does anyone know anything about this pump?
It came off a 1997 Golf 4
Is it a 10mm or 11mm pump?
Can it be swapped like an ALH pump, using this procedure:
Thank you for any help! :)
I am starting the process of converting a 1Z motor's vnt-15 to a VNT-20.
Yes, that is correct. The current system is this:
RC2 with mods for VNT control, among others.
A4 MAF, new n75 valve
2 1/2" exhaust exiting in front of the rr wheel. No restrictions.
Free flowing intake, Audi FMIC...
I have a '96 1Z motor in a toyota truck w/ the following mods:
RC2 w/mods for VNT turbo
VNT 15 turbo
FMIC, short, low restriction intake plumbing
2.5" exhaust, muffler delete, cat delete
I am having some problems with the boost intermittantly cutting out. I've logged a run with the probem...
First, I apologize for posting this in "power enhancements," but I am not sure where this thread would be most appropriate. I figured the folks who look at these threads are most knowledgable about this topic.
I am asking for any tips from those of you who have done motor swaps or complete...
