      On Wednesday nights, what USED to be the Kennedy Commons meet (notoriously rambunctious, police fodder) would go to our Pickering meet location.
      While we don't have the "rights" to use the place,...

      After nearly a decade, the cancer that is the Scarborough douchebag (and occasional car) scene has ruined another staple location.

      What annoys the **** out of me is that they call it a VW Passat.
      It's as much a Passat as that NASCAR heap is a Camry.

      I mean ****, it's not like the VAG group doesn't have a handful of V8s to...

      Digi2 Lumpy Idle

      As the title states, my brother has a 1.8 16v running on Digi2 (with chip).
      We can't figure out why the idle is so lumpy.

      The timing is bang on & it revs nicely, it just won't idle well.

      @PMvwfotos94

      May be a long shot, but check and see if your cat is melted or exhaust is clogged.
      I know someone who had a similar problem and it ended up being a clogged cat.

      If you're from London, chances are you got that from Chris & that's my old setup.
      Assuming you got the injectors with the rest of the setup (30# red), you're going to need a 30# chip for OBD1...

      That's what I was thinking, which is why I partly suspect the hall sender.

      There is no way my mechanical or ignition timing would change.
      That'd be the most coincidental of coincidences.

      AFAIK, you'd only have to change the engine management & transmission bellhousing.
      Haldex is pretty standalone.

      being a mk4, it'll cost more than a mk3 to get moving real nice.
      the most annoying cost factor being the plastic intake manifold needing to be replaced :thumbdown:

      $800 is reasonable for a running/driving wagon that isn't rotted out.

      I wouldn't put a VR in it if the car is in poor shape. If it's in great shape, it's a good swap.
      With that said, if the VR...
