They used an LS7 :mad:
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...
I can't wait for that reverse mounting fad to disappear.
That looks awful :thumbdown:
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.
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...
and it's LHD
That's what I was thinking, which is why I partly suspect the hall sender.
The blue CTS has an effect when it's unplugged.
Ignition timing is unchanged, and if mechanical timing were actually...
There is no way my mechanical or ignition timing would change.
That'd be the most coincidental of coincidences.
I haven't driven the car in a couple weeks after I noticed this;...
"I'll give you $5 to smear this fecal matter all over your dashboard"
considering his poor gear changing ability, i think he may have picked up a good 2 seconds in the quarter with the new one :P
AFAIK, you'd only have to change the engine management & transmission bellhousing.
Haldex is pretty standalone.
Great info vaults.
I was always amused to hear people asking for coloured *masks* for their DEs, when in fact they were likely just thinking of the Votex units which were supposed to be painted...
if you clicked on the first picture it would have taken you directly to the purchase page :sly:
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!
Inbox cleared as well :P
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...
