    Most Aero Roof Rack?

    Our company recently bought an 06 jetta for site visits (we sell PV systems). We need the jetta to haul a ladder frequently. The ladder needs to reach at least 25', so storing it inside is not a good option. I'm looking for a rack with the least amount of drag. I might try and make a bag to...

    cold idle surging

    When I first start my alh tdi it runs smoothly for 3-5 seconds, then it starts surging, cycling maybe 400rpm. If I apply any thottle at all it evens out, and it evens out on its own after a minute or a little driving. Any ideas?

    Boost Bounce, may be stranded!

    Folks, I have a problem. Bear with me, any suggestions appreciated. It started after 4 hours of interstate driving. I noticed my boost gauge started rising and falling 2psi rapidly. Then it got worse, 3psi, 5, 7. Around 5 I could really feel the vehicle, gain lose, gain lose power. No...

    Lift Pump?

    I'm still trying to solve my full load vibration, unevenness, whatever in top gear. When the engine sits overnight it starts easily, but takes 10 seconds or so to even out. Because my setup has no electric fuel pump and completely relies on the injection pump to pull fuel, I'd like to rule out...

    Injector balancing fyi

    I installed pp520's in my tdi. I had them pop-tested, and the results were within 25 psi of one another, pretty good for diy said the tech. After a few thousand miles, I noticed a vibration at full throttle between 1800 and 2200 rpm. I pulled my hair out trying to find it in the drivetrain...

    thermocouple placement

    A pd130 17 turbo has a seperate manifold. Therefore there isn't a great place to tap an egt probe to measure all four cylinders. A really easy and accessable spot is the blank off plate for the egr valve. The probe only has to go in about 1 inch to see great flow from cylinders 3 and 4. My...

    Hey Moderators!

    I'm not sure who to post this to, this is the only forum I've posted to so here it is! At the bottom of the tdi discussion list page is one discussion reserved for the v6 4wd passat. This thread has been pretty dead for a while now. Could it be changed to a TDI Conversion page? There are...

    Flywheel Design

    Perhaps someone can comment.. Is the alh tdi flywheel balanced by itself or with the rotating assembly (crank?) The reason I ask is I have a custom made flywheel to fit the tdi crank and reach a vanagon starter. I have a low frequency vibration in top gear at full power between 1800 and 2200...

    pd130 oil return

    So here I am eyeing a perfect condition 04 pd130 with 20 thousand miles just shipped from Des in Ireland. I can visualize what needs to be changed to fit it on an alh. Except the oil return line. The pd return is a compression fitting, the alh a banjo. The position of the 17 oil outlet seems...
