    Damaged interface?

    Can the interface/cable be damaged by hooking it to something other than a VW? I forgot which cable to use and instead of the OBD2 cable I used the Vag-Com cable on a friends ford truck and now it does not work on my Golf.

    To much boost?

    How should boost act? Full throttle any gear or using cruse control boost goes to 24psi back to 10psi back to 14 or 15psi in all gears. Using part throttle I can hold boost to 18psi from 2000rpm all the way to 4200rpm (by modulating the throttle) kinda distracting in the mountains. 03 Golf...

    Smoke at speed??

    Lots of smoke when accelerating from 65 to triple digits, not a light haze but thick black smoke, enough to make the back of the car dirtier than it has ever been. Boost was running between 16 and 18 lbs, I’m sure it’s to much fuel/to little air (is it time to clean the intake track), EGR turned...

    First time clutch change on a TDI

    Not the first clutch I’ve changed, just the first A4-TDI. You must move the engine forward and keep it there, my 2X4 fell out with the trans half in and half out, lots of fun try trying to keep the trans from falling off the jack and put the 2X4 back in place. A 13mm swivel socket is real...

    RC-2 and a stock clutch.

    What can I say, I made it all of 4 days before it started slipping. But WOW we made a weekend trip that took us over the Grapevine, I-5 north of LA, and back, 65 to 95 in a heart beat, it's now as fast up a 7% grade as it use to be going down the same hill. Yes, this Saturday is clutch day, I’ve...

    11mm pump replacement

    Autos and crappy mileage, the car is an 02 Jetta Wagon, has anyone given thought to replacing the 11mm pump with a 10mm and the correct sized injectors? I can almost justify this as I have the 10mm pump already.

    Outside mirror heater indicator light.

    I hate the wiring diagrams in the Bentley manual, I have an LED in the dash and I would like to use to indicate when the mirror heaters are on, there has to be a connection in the dash that runs from left to right and I’ll be damn if I can find it. If anyone can identify a plug and wire that is...
