      I have the stock low pressure warning switches on the filter flange and a VDO sender. I bought a cheapo gauge for throubleshooting the pressure at the head. I measured the head pressure at the back...

      If the lifters are primed the centers will be rock hard. You can only squish the centers if there is air in them or if the internal check valve is bad. I'm a little late to the party but I would have...

      Here's my cracked turbo oil feed line. I think the line was just vibrating for too long and eventually cracked. I can't imagine that gauge hanging out there would help.

      What's going on there? Why the two ports on the oil flange? Aren't they hooked up to the same place? Wouldn't a gauge on one and a plug in the other do the same?

      Watch out for hard lines and...

      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.

      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.

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

      About grounding: I had to ground...

      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...
