      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.

      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...

      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...

      May have access to a set of Votex duals, but the lights are broken.
      From what I can tell, the Votex/Hella units are the same, except for the housing (the Votex are straight black).

      Come springtime the MK2 is getting dismantled in favour of a B3 Syncro Wagon.
      The 16vt will go into the wagon :)

      I'm just collecting parts for the moment!

      As the title states, I've got a question regarding Hella DEs.
      I understand they are really quite rare, but I'm hopeful someone here has got a set and can help me out.

      Basically, I'd like to know...

      Alexi is correct.

      However, may I add a bit of advice? Don't run your intake down to the ground.
      It may look nice and neat, but it makes disassembling a pain and you will need to constantly clench...
