      How true. However, the guy was a service manager at the local VW dealership, so I was confident he knew his stuff. What happens so many times is that a person's technical ability doesn't mean...

      Sorry, but no.

      The OD of the F23 inlet is bigger. Go with either the Franketurbo TIP or search for Bager 5 TIP. Let Bager 5 know you have an F23.

      I've gone through 3 Optima red tops, so no more for me. If your car sits for a while, and the voltage drops below a certain point, you cannot recover the battery with a charger.

      The wideband ecu uses a 0-5 volt O2 snesor verses a 0-1 volt O2 sensor on the narrowband ecu, hence, wideband.

      I don't have any part number, but you can take your old O2 sensor down to a...

      O2 sensors have to be changed also. Some folks have forgotten to do this and blamed the conversion.

      You really need to cut the divider down quite a bit. This should eliminate the misfires.

      I'm curious how your new Eliminator/JBS setup did at the track. How was the spoolup and/or transient response? Happy with the setup? What would you do different? Dyno results anytime soon?

      Sorry to hear your having difficulties with PureTurbo. I was thinking about using them, but I may pass now.

      Do let us know...
