      Right, got the thing dyno'ed....129HP on the engine, 35HP train loss, that must be ok.
      Now, the ignition acts weird.
      At no resistance, its at 16 BTDC@3000rpms and 20 deg@4000rpms.....

      I changed...

      OK, the AFR values are from the LM-2, and yes, it can simulate narrowband.
      But I'll just weld in an extra bung for the LM-2, so no simulation necessary:)

      I checked the slack in the cam chain, and...

      "Compression is measured to 16 bars(232psi) on all 4 cyls."....isn't this extremely high?

      Plugs are still tan (so prolly no carbon build-up inside chambers), head has not been skimmed excessively...

      Just hit me....what's the + terminal for feed voltage supposed to measure on the flapper potmeter?
      Mine says just below 5V.

      If that's correct, then how will it ever put out 7-8V on the signal???...

      Oh yeah, just to add to the misery, ABS light is flashing out codes.
      First, it flashed 1241, so I changed the right front speed sensor.
      Then it flashed 1233, so I'll change the left one too, and...

      I currently get like 950kms on a tankful, mixed driving, but mostly countryside.

      So, might not be much to gain on economy, but I'd like the car to at least drive properly.
      Reacts very poorly on...

      Yeah(0mAh when warm or cold), but now I think it was during the deactivation of the DPR, as described above.
      I have to check again.

      But, my lambda is not installed correctly at the moment, it's...

      Forgot, here's the activation- and clearing procedure from that manual:

      Erasing
      Ensure ignition switched OFF.
      Connect LED test lamp between black data link connector
      (DLC) terminal 2 LI [A] and...

      Right, only codes showing now are these 4:
      4341, 4343, 4431 and 4443.
      Reading threads elsewhere, I thought these were error codes, but they are NOT.
      According to a VW manual I found, it's a manual...

      Right, I guess it's the usual confusion between standards, here in DK, we never ever use the l/100km thing, but they do i Germany. We only use km/l here.

      I installed a sond today, drove it until...

      900kms/75L fuel is 12 km per liter, which is 8.33L/100km, correct.

      Nono, not the resetable trip-meter:), it's dead in the left, lower CORNER of the screen.
      It has a black plug, when you remove...

      OK, I see what you mean, regarding economy etc., it might not work wonders.

      Worst of all problems is the ever changing idle mixture, which is making the car idle fine one day, and hunt like crazy...
    13. Was my car born with an O2 sensor?(now missing...)

      Hi all, new member here.
      I have a 1989/90 VW Passat Variant GT 2.0 16V with a 9A in it.
      White label in the back says (100kw) GKAT 9A, (etc.), so guess it's the correct engine for the car.

      Now,...
