      The Bentley doesn't have a section on setting the timing belt?

      Shaved 88 build thread.

      That's one of the best looking MK2 Sciroccos.

      The caps are across pins 4 and 1 in the harness. One by coil 2 and one by coil 4. I used two to try and make it more redundant. They got 'damaged' (with pins 2 and 4 grounded to the head) in 30...

      That's a great addition to the thread. I like how integrated it is. Maybe you can post details on where the push rod attaches to the pedal arm and what part number the cylinder is / where to find it....

      I think it's 16 gauge. I'm not sure exactly why the capacitor would help but I put it on out of desperation. Apparently some Ford edis modules use a 22 mF cap and some guys use them on LS coils.

      Problem solved. Loose wire from the sender. :facepalm:

      Steady 90 psi now from 4-7k rpm. 30 psi at idle (warmed up).

      Thanks for the pointer. :thumbup: I checked the wires to the sender and found that the nut was missing! So the ring terminal was just laying on the stud but not making a good connection. I'll confirm...

      I had first grounded pin 2 and 4 to the head. I had lots of electrical noise and sync loss. Adding a 35v 470mF capacitor (electrolytic) helped, but I would occasionally get sync loss. After a track...

      Yes they are both 150. I bought the sender and gauge aftermarket at the same time. The sender also has an integrated warning switch.

      However the weird issue isn't the pressure, it's how it builds....

      Well congratulations on your house. Sucks about the bearing. Hey my project 16vt was 7 years in the build stage with it being under a tarp most of the time. Now I'm like you in the continual...

      Sweet airbox! Why not run a MAF sensor to make tuning the ITBs easier?

      I have my plugs gap'ed at .035" with 18 psi of boost, so .040" for N/A should be great.

      About grounding: I had to ground...

      That's the voltage (at the gauge) with the headlights on. With the headlights off I get about 2v more. I tried checking the oil pressure with the headlights on and off just in case it was a...

      I ask about the compression because I'm running 8.5:1 and boost 15-18 psi with no detonation. Same head as you but "low compression" 9A pistons which have a dish in them. I don't think the piston...

      Oil pressure too high?

      https://vimeo.com/122490516

      I just recently noticed this. Cruising at 4k rpm the oil pressure is about 90-100 psi. But when accelerating from 3-4k rpm the pressure shoots past 150 as show in the...

      I don't miss the cable clutch at all! I feel bad for all who go to an 02J and still use a cable.

      Here's take two. This time out of brass which will hopefully bend before it cracks.
