    Leaking 02J and noise in reverse

    Posting this for a friend third hand, so it will take a while to answer any questions. His son's car, away at college and possibly has to come home. " He said his transmission started making a weird noise based off axle rotation (as best as I could get from him) and was leaking transmission...

    swapping ECM from 03 to 02 beetles

    Short story: Wrecked the 03, with stage 4+ tune and parts in it. We have an 02 and my question is, will the ECM drop in there OK ? We may be getting a different car, so I could keep the 02 and junk/part out the 03.

    Dead pedal on the beetle.

    It has 190k miles on the original pump. Recent filter change. It's been at Malone stage 4 + with 764s and a 17/22 and the little bits for 20k. Great fun :) I could get a hard vapor lock on it if I stood on it before it was completely warmed up. Now it has a dead pedal when cold, that improves...

    02 ALH did not start this morning :-(

    My wife's beetle turns over, chugs and smokes a little, but no start. Ran great when she parked it Saturday. I will check valve and pump timing when I get home. Any other suggestions?

    advanced timing

    Using TDI timing in VCDS, I ended up about 2 pixels above the green after many attempts to land right on it. Is that something to worry about, or is it close enough?

    custom scangauge install in New Beetle

    I have started the personalization on my Beetle :D The rounded dash and steering column parts have a nice OEM look, but are not good for new radios, little doodads like a scangauge, etc. I had it velcroed to the top of the column, but it obscured the fuel and tach, and I had to reach behind it...

    LUK DMF clutch vs SBC

    I know SBC makes great parts and has great customer service, so we can get that out of the way. My goals are a daily driver with no more than ~170 HP/ mid 200's on torque. A LUK DMF kit is less than $400, and I can't get near the SBC stuff for less than 500 plus turning my old Sachs DMF...

    03 beetle hesitates, then pulls great

    It is totally drivable, but according to my other car and my friend with a '00 beetle there is something slightly amiss. I have a scangauge but no VCDS yet. Car has 148K and has had all the services done at the dealer by the previous owner. One thing he suggested was possibly a problem with...

    03 beetle hesitates, then pulls great

    If I run through the gears hard it has a serious 'hole' till it gets boost going. Under normal driving it is not noticeable. I got it used with 145K miles, and have not pulled or inspected the intake yet. I wonder if that is a good symptom of a plugged up intake, it lacks volume till it gets...
