    1990 Toyota Pickup TDI Conversion - Ottawa, ON

    I have had grand plans to put this back on the road, but I'm building a house and it's realistically not going to happen any time soon. Here's a link the build thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=292227 Based on it's current condition, I would recommend that you use it as parts...

    '01 Audi A4 1.8T quattro TDI Conversion

    Does cruise work in any gear? I had to get Malone to adjust mine when he got the 6th gear ratio wrong, it would work in gears 1-5 though. Have you checked that the cruise switch and clutch/brake switches are working in VCDS?

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    Figured I would do a little update as I've racked up 55k since the swap. No swap issues to report, just a couple of Allroad issues but nothing serious. I consistently get 7.5L/100km combined, although I would say my driving is 70% highway driving. I also tend to drive a little faster on the...

    4 cylinder TDI quattro clutch discussion

    I'm currently using the Audi 80 flywheel, S2 pressure plate and B5 S4/RS4 disc. I do get some clutch rattle in neutral, but it's no worse than a VR6 single mass conversion on a Golf/Jetta TDI. I also get some vibration from 1600-2000rpms under heavy load, almost as if I'm hitting the resonant...

    Etest tdi swap in ontario please help

    When I did my Allroad swap, I just left the registration slip as gas. I went in for an e-test and didn't tell anyone about the swap, passed without a question. All of the diesel emissions equipment in fully intact and functioning on my car, so the applicable readiness codes are generated which...

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    Unfortunately it's not that seal. Oil level is normal with no diesel smell. I was jiggling around the engine speed sensor and it hasn't acted up since. Not sure if it's just a coincidence or that's the problem. I would have expected a fault code...

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    Well after almost 10,000kms trouble free, I'm having a strange issue. Starts first crank as always, idles for 10-15 second and dies. Starts right up and does the same thing. If I press the throttle and hold it at 1500rpm, it will run with the occasional stutter. Let of the throttle, it will...

    Audi Allroad 2.7T 6spd =» 2.0TDI BHW + 2.5TDI 6spd Allroad gearbox

    People use a ~20lb G60 flywheel on ALH/BEW engines all the time with no issues, myself included. The worst I experienced from that set up was a slight rattle at idle, but no vibration once moving. Any chance it's in the driveline? A bent output shaft or bad u-joint?

    Audi Allroad 2.7T 6spd =» 2.0TDI BHW + 2.5TDI 6spd Allroad gearbox

    I would expect the balancer assembly would need to be timed to engine rotation, otherwise it will increase the vibrations instead of cancelling them. I think there is some kind of locking tool for the balancer assembly. I deleted the balance shaft on my car, so I've never actually done the...

    Audi Allroad 2.7T 6spd =» 2.0TDI BHW + 2.5TDI 6spd Allroad gearbox

    Did you have the entire clutch assembly balanced once the flywheel was modified? Is your balance shaft assembly timed correctly? I wouldn't think the auto/manual swap would have much effect.

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    There is some vibration at low RPM's throughout the whole car. I think its a combination of deleting the balance shaft, no dual mass flywheel and maybe older engine/transmission mounts. I usually try and run around 2000 rpm as that's where I have more torque. I was planning on replacing the...

    2006 Audi A4Q Avant 2.0TFSI -> 2.0TDI (Holset edition)

    The TDI Allroad has no problems starting at -30C, glow it once and it fires on the first crank. I'm thinking its more map related...

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    stp359: Are you using the original BHW power supply relay? This is the BHW wiring diagram I had: I just put a new VSS in hoping it would cure my cruise control, no dice. Measuring block 6 in vagcom shows the speed as 0 km/h when the car is in motion, I would think this is my issue. Could...

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    Allroads have their own funky final drive ratios, which is 4.375. This is different from a standard non-Allroad A6. As far as I know there is no TDI ratio 01E's with a 4.375 final drive. Frans gave me the option of a 4.11 or 3.89 final drive, however the 4.11 was a few hundred $$ cheaper. This...

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    Carnage pics: You can kind of see the bend in the pinion near the splines. The bearing had ~1/8" of play. In other news, I've been helping a buddy build this: I drew all the ski parts and had them laser cut, then just welded them together. We had some wheel adapters/spacers made to bolt...

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    Well I went and grabbed a complete rear A6 subframe from the u-pull today. That was a real blast in the snow... Put the new diff in and all seems to be good. The pinion is bent on the old one... My guess is a lazy fork lift driver at the junk yard. I'm kind of amazed it lasted as long as it...

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    Tdiavant, my clutch seems to be holding just fine with a Malone "Stage 2" tune and has a nice and light pedal. I can't speak for longevity obviously, as I've only put ~3000km's on it. I think I've lined up a replacement diff, definitely not going to bother trying to repair it.

    2004 Allroad BHW Conversion

    I've noticed a bit of a vibration the last couple days on my commute, thought it was just in my head as it wasn't getting worse. Then I got what felt like a bad misfire followed by increased vibration at 70MPH. Got off the highway ASAP and looked under the car to find my rear diff pissing. I...
