      A replacement ISV straightened out the rough idle, rich exhaust etc. on the '95 Cabrio. With regard to the wacky cluster gauges (with temp and fuel gauge whipping back and forth in unison like...
    3. Thanks Dawg

      Thanks for the tip. That could very well be something I hosed up or omitted, as I can't recall the connection without making a trip down to the garage to look. I've got the vagcom dongle & software...
    4. Still waiting

      I'm still waiting on the vagcom dongle, but I had to move the car today and felt the ISV for the buzzing/vibrating sensation that it's supposed to give off when functioning properly. I didn't feel a...

    6. Thanks

    7. More info

      I had to tap out the EGR connection on the header to the correct size. I got quite a bit of thread cutting oil inside the header. I just let it run/drip out and didn't thoroughly clean it.

      Thanks PS, I'm considering the same and intended to do so if I couldn't find a used set of 83MM's. The engine did go 105K on the first set of rings, I believe the PO overheated it more than once...

      83mm Pistons

      Hi, My daughter’s 95 Cabrio has 155-160 psi and practically blows the oil cap into the air when it is loosened. I previously installed a head gasket and remanufactured head, but it really needs rings...

      Thanks Brad. This thread has resulted in opening up this 7-year old wound all over again. I'm thinking as soon as I have room in the garage I need to build a 20-valve 4KTQ. I'll print and laminate...
