    Best tool for reading/writing EDC15

    I have been doing some of my own remapping using VAGEDCsuite and in the past I have only done MSA15 with chips and a programmer but now want to step up to OBD flashing with later EDC15 ECUs. What's the best tool for this? Seem like a lot of people like MPPS but the prices are absurd on real...

    Immo3 cluster in 99.5 car, no CCM communications.

    I'm kinda at wits end here. Long story short I have a 99.5 gasser shell with the gasser body harness, an 03 ALH ECU and engine harness, IMMO3 cluster and CAN airbag controller(swapped all the pins over). Had to make an adapter harness for the plug by the headlight. On the engine side of things...

Went to try and connect with VCDS and get this weird error code:"controller uses unknown protocol. Protocol keyword: $F2F2". Now I know that 99.5 cars use...

    This should be a fun one, have a core ALH engine, a rust free gasser Mk4 shell, and picked up a GTB2056VL off ebay uk for $300 delivered to my door. Came off some diesel volvo of sorts.

    Test run E-ALH with no ECU.

    So long story short, I have acquired another ALH engine for really cheap as a core. So far it looks like a decent run-able engine. So I got thinking about this and in theory, I would need to do is put +12 the IP shutoff, and a few volts to the Q/A. The advanced solenoid would be pinned at...

    Has anyone done subframe bushings?

    First time doing subframe bushings...bought Rein replacements. I thought they were very cheap(like $5 a piece). Made in china of course, stinks like cheap rubber too. Removing old ones was easy, just hammered on them and they fell right out. Trying to put in the new Rein ones on the other hand...

    Unraveling the MK4 lamp mystery (cross reference chart)

    Figured I would share this chart I made, this came about because finding proper MK4 replacement lamps can be difficult. And as we know, these cars always need replacements. So I sat down and started doing research. It turns out that for whatever reason VW engineers decided to use really short...

    BRM with an 09G transmission?

    Looking at my Bentley and confirmed in real life, the 09G auto transmission that came with the 5 cylinder gasser MK5s has the perfect ratios for TDIs. Does any one know if it would work with a BRM? I know that it should bolt up as the bell housing is the same for 5 cylinder and TDI. Question is...
