1987 GTI 16v, no build thread.
I already got a FI chip from SNS. As for the TPS...I figured that out a while ago. thanks though. I always got confused because some people called it Tps (throttle position sensor) when it's more of an idle position sensor. I'm just stuck on the last random wires on the fusebox side of the digi1 harness.
anyone have any good/bad experiences with digifant 1 running a 16valve turbo? I'm looking into a custom sns chip. I have an adjustable aeromotive fuel pressure regulator and an aem wideband so i can make sure im never lean. Im running a t3 super 60 at 10lbs with 42lb injectors. Oh and autotech sport cams and autotech 8k springs as well...
Any thoughts on how well digi 1 will run this motor with a custom sns chip?
Hate "bumping" threads that aren't FS threads, but I really need help. And matthew, if I could do it again, I would go MS. Good luck with getting into contact with sns, but the motor will run fine with an sns chip. I have one now, but I got it from a person on here.

I'm about to make the switch from motronic to digi 1 but i had a few questions before i start to purchase parts. These may sound dumb but i am new (really new) to any sort of modifications to my car. This will be my first "real" project. As of right now this is just for a stock N/A 2.0 16v
bear with me
So how do you go about choosing the correct FPR and and injectors? I understand that for situations that require more fuel you get bigger injectors and a FPR that compensates for the pressure. But how do i know the correct one to get based on MY stock motor? i don't want to get parts just because a DIY said so. I've been looking at the Fuel Injection data for motronic and here they are
System pressure- 6.1-6.6 bar
Differential pressure- 1.3-1.6 bar
Residual pressure- 3.2 bar
based on these values where does a person decide to go with a 3.5 bar FPR and #30 injectors (these are from the motronic to digi DIY) instead of these values do i actually go out and measure the pressure at the injectors themselves?
Also, i am going to install and air/fuel gauge as well as it was strongly recommended. how do i know what the correct ratio is for my car?
sorry if i sound stupid but i like understanding things before diving in. any feedback is appreciated.
Just do it, do not think.
Get a BBM rail and either mk2 or mk3 fpr adapter, stock digi 1 injectors install and go
The bosch fpr's are pretty robust, and will easily bypass the extra pressure/volume from a motronic pump no problem. Ive been doing it for years.
Hey guys... Ive got a problem with my digi1 16v setup. its a 1.8l 16v on digi1 with an sns chip. the car runs great but when the WOT switch is engaged the car falls on its face.. any ideas? bad switches or bad chip? stock motor with external oil cool and im running no thermostat
This thread is so damn dead... anways.
I have a 87 jetta, ce1 fusebox
2L 16v swap.
Car was running.
All of a sudden i can't get it to run, I have gas, fuel pressure, i also have power at the coil.
The only thing remotely related to wiring or electronics was that i welded on the body with power to the ecu still on, i never heard any problems about this but some peoples say its a big deal.
I cant get any spark, engine cranks strong but doesn't run.
Any help? just had the wiring redone and it was running fine
Well i went ahead and made myself a wire harness to plug into the black digi 1 coolant plug with a spade terminal on the other end and viola my temprature gauge works. All you have to do is cut off the black digi 1 plug and install a spade terminal on the hotwire and plug into #5. The hotwire on my car is yellow and red and the ground is brown of course. Make sure you ground that brown off.

I am in the process of converting a 2.0 16v to digi 1. I have most of it hooked up and figured out but was stumped on the o2 sensor. I narrowed it down to one plug that I think has to be it but it doesnt look like any of the pictures I have seen. Maybe previous owner switched it out or I am just really confused. Anyways I have some pictures of it, if this is infact the o2 plug how should I go about splicing or whatever to make it work with a ce-2 plug? I know this is an old topic so I posted in both digi 1 threads hoping someone will see it. Thanks

Well, i been searching for some days now, and i dont seem to find exactly whats i need
So i got a corrado g60 with 2.0 16v n/a digi 1 build now
It has the stock golf throtle body, wich got a vacum slot in the back (near of the firewall) and i have it open, because if i cap it, my car just dosnt idle and dies.
O yeah, right now im running on the g60 stock ecu, im about to buy the chip from bbm
Bringing this back to life..
I wanna keep this cheap, I am on a tight budget.
I'm new here and kinda new to this.
This is my first time switching over to something else.
I have a 1990 g60 corrado
1.8l 16v from a gti. Setup for motronic
I am putting the motor in them and I have to switch over to digi 1
I am not going turbo,I want a reliable dd!!
1. G60 wire harness
2. G60 Ecu
3. G60 injectors
4. G60 radiator
5. G60 bay harness
6. Motor mounts, bbm solid ft motor mount
7. I have both g60 and 16v throttle bodies
1. Fuel rail. (found on eBay, 79.00,http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBX-H-Flow-F...&forceRpt=true)
2. G60/16v co pot sensor bung from bbm
3. A chip, idk which one I need
What radiator hoses will fit?
Can I use a g60 fpr?
What else do I need?
Do I need to extend or buy adapters for the fuel lines?
I read a lot of this and everyone keeps saying something different
Anyone please help!! Im confused
So to start off.. you need to get everything to convert the g60 to 16v, then work your way to all of the other things. You can go 16v na with exactly what you have now.
I have most wiring diagrams in PDF format!
