      Digi1 Fueling Issues

      So I've got an 88 Jetta, with an ABA16vT running on Digi1, into a CE1 fusebox.
      Everything ignition/fuel related is factory except for the ignition wires & fuel rail.

      I've been booting the car...

      MAF -> Blower -> DV -> TBody
      You'll want the DV to recirculate back before the blower, but after the MAF.

      We were trying to determine what gearset his transmission had.

      A GPS provides an accurate 3rd party speed measurement that, when combined with the engine RPM, can be compared to the calculated...

      EGF is an 02J transmission, not an 02A.
      I don't think they are compatable.


      Why? I doubt the 5th gear is shorter, because there aren't anything shorter than the stock VR ones.
      Changing the...

      Probably a 4.24 final drive.
      That'd be 3700rpm @ 70, so I'd chalk up the difference to GPS inaccuracy.

      Unless the guy had some stuff made, there is no other gearing for the 02A transmission that...

      The speedo is reading wrong because your wheels are undersized.
      GPS will tell you your ACTUAL speed, and you match that to your RPM.

      70mph on GPS combined with your tach -> compare that to what I...

      Grab a GPS and find out what rpm you are at in 5th @ 70mph.
      I'm willing to bet your speedo is off and you've got a 3.647 or 3.94 final drive.

      3.38 -> 70 @ 2975 [Golf/Jetta/Passat VR6]
      3.64/8 ->...

      What sized tires/wheels are you running?
      My old GLX was similar and I was using Corrado final drive (3.647) with a slightly undersized wheel setup (205/40/16).

      They all use a diverter valve. Not using one will drastically shorten the life of the supercharger.

      Here's all the belt info I've gathered in regard to legacy 12v motors using V1/2 blowers.
      I repeat, V1 & V2 blowers. NOT V9

      Golf/Jetta fuel capacity has always been 50 litres with a 5 litre reserve.
      I'm not sure about the MK1, but MK2 and up have always been like that.

      So I added a working ISV to the car, and it only seems to work sometimes.
      I'm supposed to be driving down to Maryland next week for H20i, and I'd love to have a working ISV :P
