|Very nice. I envy ya, must have been fun wiring.|
This is what I was dreading though it really wasn't all that hard. Unplug all of the CIS-E stuff and run wires for TPS, coolant, intake air, O2 (wideband ),injectors, tach, power, ground, and switched 12v

But do you have brakes yet too ?
Yes it is official I have done The Brit's 22mm MC conversion along with 10.1's in front and 8.9's in rear. I only had the car out for a day with the conversion before I ripped everything out but OMG. The pedal feel compared to stock is AMAZING. Even with stock prop valves in the rear the fronts will lock up before the rears under hard braking. Though I do plan to change them out for 16v units and run new hardlines.
I must say to Jamie. Anyone looking to upgrade their brakes to a race worthy set-up look no furthur. Its worth every penny!
Unfortunatly I have to work this weekend(11-7 today 3-11 tomorrow) though im planning on being sick about 4hrs into it so hopefully Ii can get my wideband to speak more correctly with MS and get her out on her maiden voyage to Bug-Out.
I'll probably park the jetta in the show area but racing a 17second car that will run a 17 is silly. 30mpg is what the 1.8L 100hp motor was made for and she does it well.
A bit more info on the swap.
The MS was put togeather by a a friend of mine and my self. He's studying electrical engineering and im studying mechanical so it was a good combination. Honestly anyone who can pick up a test bread board from radioshack and make a decent solder and knows how to use a volt meter can do this. It took us about a week to get everything togeather (MS ECU, Relay board, stimulator, and megaview).
Parts used to swap from CIS-E to MS:
G60 fuelrail, injectors, FPR and injector inserts(digi2 stuff will also work).
Intake air temp(IAT) from a 2.0L mk3.
Digi1/2 coolant neck and sensors(blue is for ecu black is for cluster guage).
Spool of rubber fuel line.
Auto 16v passat TB with TPS.
lots of wiring and some various vac line and hose clamps.
Unplug/dissconnect injectors from head and everything on the CIS-E box and pull it out. Make note of which fuel line is feed and which is return.
pull off coolant neck and replace wiht the digi one.
Swap the injector inserts over and bolt up the wiring part of the fuel rail. Then insert the injecrots plug them in and bolt down the rail. Put the injector clips on once everythign is bolted down tight.
Run some rubber fuel hose from feed to the top of the rail and return to the FPR. I put a bit of WD-40 in the end of the hose to help it get over the flares. Then I clamped it down to make sure gas wasn't gonna spray on the exhaust manifold.
Next I needed to devise an intake. I got a BMW cone air filter(4" inlet ) and used the stock CIS-E boot and it fit perfectly where the CIS-E bowl was. Then i needed to mount the IAT so i pulled the plastic plug out of the elbow in the boot and used a drill to open it up a until my sensor would thread into the rubber. She sealed tight and looks pretty sweet IMO. Using the stock boot also makes keeping most vaccume stuff in the same place . I still need to get a small filter for the valve cover vent which I didnt route back to the intake.
I retained the aux air valve as a fast idle valve and sofar so good. Getting the idle down using a TB wiht out an idle screw was a bit tricky but nailed down to 800-900.
After getting everythign in we ran wires for the sensors and and power. Switched 12v when cranking is taken from the + on the coil for the moment until I find a better spot(tips/ideas? needs to be 12v in durring run and crank). The CIS-e ignition was retained. The - on the coil is suposed a horrible place to grab a tach signal so I used 3 1/2 watt 1K resistors to keep down the noise on the line and so far so good.
Right now im running Inovate LM-1 as an O2 but I dont think I have something configured right so that needs to be addressed.
Thanks for the kind words guys! I've spent 2 weeks getting the brakes swap done along with those stupid control arm bushings. Seems like a while but I was just taking my time. The MS install was completed in 2 friday nights and now I wish I had done it earlier so I could for sure run at the show, hopefully I still can.
