Is that cluster from a FI car? As in the fuel mileage will read out accurately even when under boost?
That cluster is from a Golf G60..Dunno if it will be accurate,but I have no use for this anymore..

In lack of interest, and need for more power and more space..
Think it has been running about 200tkm`s and looks like its in very good condition, and no leaks..
Got me som new/used parts these days:
16V rear disc brakes, a bit rusty but in "good" condition..
New Inner housing for the 02A tranny:
Thats all for now,maybe a new update tomorrow...

A little update here..
New parts have arrived
Grinding and measuring the piston rings
And some mounting of the..
The ARP studs on its place
The next step with the engine is porting the head,16 new valve positioners(?),grinding the valves if they are in good condition,grinding the valve seats in 3 different steps(degrees)..
Tomorrow I`m going to glass blast the oil pan an make a hole for the return,and weld a plunger into it..I`m going to use a oilfilter house from a 83 GTI engine,cause of the external cooling..
And the car as it stands for now..

Quote, originally posted by VAG_Lowrider » New parts: Haltech E6X
Please can you post up a pic of the plug for this ECU? I have a E6A, but it has no loom. The connectors are made by ITT Cannon, but I'm having no luck finding them. I'd like to see if the E6X and the E6A have the same connector so that I can decide if I should spend the money and purchase the loom from Haltech. They haven't responded to my request about the E6A loom.
Failing that, I'm desoldering the PCB connector, hard wiring the cables in and splitting the loom into several strands so that I can put 1 plug and remove injectors, or sensors, etc, etc.
