      Someday soon my friends, this ride will come to an end - but we can't just get in line again.

      Alright... a bit of an emergency. Found out tonight that my motor and harness is all OBD1 and my ECU is OBD2.

      So anyone have an OBD1 ECU that I could borrow for a week or so? I am working on getting a chipped ECU from someone. But it wont be here for this weekend.

      I need to start this stinking car tomorrow or it isn't going to St Augustine this weekend!

      ^^ it started and idled, but died when throttle was applied. the car did not make it to the show, he drove his mkIV.
      the ride home was fun and can't wait to see the rolling shots

    13. 10-13-2012 09:58 PM #35293
      Yeah, it was a no go. Maybe you can answer this... Will an obd2 MAF work on an OBD1 motor?

      And Pete, pics tomorrow! I need sleep! Haha

      No. they are different as far as I know. You can actually run the car with out a maf. it will run and rev but it puts the obd1 into limp mode at a certain rev I think. not 100%. like it will go to 4 or 5k rpm then stop. If I'm correct. I for certain that the mafs are different.

      Don't need one of those to make it run either. Not on OBD1. If you want good gas mileage you need it. but it will run with out one. I have video of one running with out one.

      On a Vr they are actually interchangeable (perhaps does not hold true for this application). Yes, physically different but functionally the same.

      I use them interchangebly on Vrs all the time... especially since you can get the OBD1 used for much less. Footprint of the holes lines up perfectly. The main difference is the element itself, guess they made the OBD2 a little more durable. Might not apply to 8v though.

      Well there's an OBD1 at the junk yard so I will pull the MAF out of that and clean it. I also need to figure out why my injectors continue firing after the engine dies.

      An I will get the video today. It idles smooth and revs smooth. But in order to get it to rev up, I have to cover the intake and control the amount of air going in manually.

      Ok, here is the video. And her is the order of things I show in it.

      First I kill the motor just by opening the throttle.
      Then you can hear the injectors continue to fire till the key is shut off.
      Then I rev the motor by covering the intake and controlling the airflow.
      Then I rev the motor by pumping the the throttle up a little at a time.

      So tell me what you think. And what that whistle might be, I can't track it down for nothing. It sounds like it is coming from the upper manifold somewhere.

      Honestly The whistle is a big vacuum leak. is this obd1 or obd2. because it sounds like the throttle body is obd2 and the intake is obd1. difference is the obd2 does not have a idle air control valve on it. the obd1 does. the obd2 the IAC is controlled by a motor that opens and closes the throttle it's self. that's the sound I think I'm hearing that you think is your injectors. if it is a obd1 intake manifold there will be a big hole just under the backside of the upper intake manifold underneath the over hang you can see in the video. that's probably your vacuum leak and why it won't rev unless your controlling air flow. getting to much air from somewhere else that isn't metered for the computer to compensate for it quick enough.
