      Prime example of why it is a decent idea to keep the MK2 harness and comp and retrofit the fuel rail wiring and the distributor. Change wheel inside the distributor and you are good to go. Super simple
      Believe me...If it has wheels or an engine I can blow it up!

      Are you really advocating running an ABA on Digifant just because I have a loose wire? Motronic offers better throttle response, drivability, responsiveness to upgrades, diagnostic capabilities, and emissions. What are the benefits of Digifant compared to Motronic beside the fact that it's already in the car?

      Of course the method you suggest is feasible, but you're leaving a lot on the table for very little savings of effort.

      Nah man it was a slight joke. I am a fan of it but I would say if you have the ability then just do the swap. MK2 are not racecars so for me it makes more sense to run Digi. I dont suggest you stay with Digi I think you have everything covered.

      Everyone has the ability to do any swap. This is hands down the most stright forward swap I've done. Asking what three wires are isn't a big enough deal to keep digi. If i had any faith in that wiring harness, ecu, or capability of that system I wouldnt have done a swap at all.

      connect the jumper from 30-30B

      Connect single blue to W1

      Brown connector is OBD port

      That relay is for SAI. Valve is for Recirc flap or AC.

      so can I just move it over or do I need to bridge them together, power from Y to both?

      You want the jumper going from 30 to 30b on the fuse panel. It has nothing to do with Y.

      Yes that gets connected to w1

      So I can un-plug the wire from Y3 and re-connect it to 30. Do I just leave Y3 open afterwards?

      Sorry, I have went thru so many threads and just confused myself even more. Trying to distinguish the differences between obd1 wiring and obd2 into ce2. I really apreciate the help. I was going to IM you for help but saw you online.

      I might have more Q's tomorrow.

      Ok, so I got all those moved and this is what it looks like now.




      Here is a vid of it trying to start. You can see the fire out the exhaust.


      Any ideas?

      ****. So... what exactly does the D8 to E2 jump do? Do I need that to make it actually run?

      Also, I have verified switched ign power to ECU pin 23 but the constant power to pin 54 is hiding from me.
      Pin 54 on the ECU side is a solid red wire.. but I cannot find it on the fuse box side. Does it change to red/blue maybe?

      Can you tell me where to locate pin 54 on the fuse box side and where to connect it to constant power?

      D8-E2 is for your gauge cluster. Solid red out of pin 54 would should be solid red in the cabin but don't quote me on that.

      Here is your fuse box diagram: http://www.a2resource.com/electrical/CE2.html

      Single red/yellow with red connector on obd1. On obd 2 may be in G connectors.

      Well I got constant power to pin 54 and switched power to pin 23 and the ground on pin 1 etc..

      Sounds the same.

      Missed the bid on a good Bentley on Ebay Anybody got a good DIY for timing? It was checked multiple times but that is all I can think of.

      cyl 1 at TDC, cam sprocket(dot) at O.T on plastic timing cover near valve cover. distributor rotor pointed to cyl 1 which is marked on the dizzy with a fine line notched into the aluminum housing. use cyl1 on cap as a reference point and look for the mark on the dizzy. you will need someone to watch the rotor and maybe even hold it for you as u slide the timing belt on to ensure none of these settings move. if you follow this exactly, your motor will be timed mechanically, and distributor timing set to 0D BTDC. good luck
      P.S check your current set up against what i just said before your rip it apart again.

      because people believe you HAVE to have oil squirters and forged cranks. It is absolutely not necessary. It is prob better to have OBD2 as the motor is newer and has less mileage. Wiring is so similar it is a mute point.
