      Hey my car is doing this weird thing now after doing the complete delete. It feels like the gas is cutting out. If I leave my foot on the gas to speed up, or even just going a consistent speed, the car will lose all power, almost like I took it out of gear, and then the power will jerk back in. The power goes away for just about a second or two and then returns but it keeps doing this. It's like the engine is kind of sputtering. Sometimes it cuts out all the way and the car dies. Does anybody have any idea what could be going on?

      I have a Unitronic BT 630cc file running my car right now with the only delete being the cat. I'd love to clear up the clutter and removed the rest of these emissions. Will I need to send the ecu in to have it modified for the remaining emission deletes or could I just follow this process and be in good shape ?

      if you bought the uni tune new from an authorized dealer and it is within the first year of purchase, i am pretty sure it is 50$ to send it in and have this done.

      if after 1 year, it is 100$.

      if you are NOT the original buyer, you will need the original buyer's name and contact uni and have the license transfered for 150$, then you may request a change.

      if you dont have the oridinal buyer's name, you can get luckey with the vin of the chassis, if the tuner recorded it in the sale. you should be bale to get the vin off a vag com scan of the ecu.

      I bought the car from a good friend of mine, so I am not the original owner. Unitronic had informed me of the $150 fee when I called about a separate question. I was just curious if I could use the current file with properly deleted emissions or if I should just pay all their fees and get the file changed accordingly before deleting anything.

      bump for finally removing my secondary air pump and that long ass hose. Wow so much room now without secondary air and n249!

      kept evap though.

      ok so im not gonna read all 1000000 pages. ive read the first post and first few pages, and the last few pages....

      i just got around to finally removing all the evap crap. i also removed the evap pump in the passanger fender wheel well.....

      did you all leave it plugged in? i just got a CEL, will scan it tonight...i was going to resistor it but it is not a 2 wire plug, almost positive it was three.....and did not want to guess....

      done the diy now dv makes whip like noise when letting off of heavy boost. but not at 5 lbs. cant find any vacuum leaks either. i have not done any resistors yet. could that throw it off?

      sorry..that is 2 prong ,and who said anythign about N80?!

      I am talking about the evap pump that is behind the wheel liner. You have to jack the car up, remove the wheel well liner, and it is behind the liner. It is the pump for testing the system, and the pump is THREE pronged, NOT TWO......sorry to be annoyed, but you are annoyed at me for assuming something incorrect.

      http://www.jimellisaudiparts.com/sho...ssembly=754162

      it is item 1 in the above link, and all the garbage that goes with it

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/99-06-VW-Gol...-/290639604503

      the above link has one for sale on ebay, and you can CLEARLY see the three prongged plug

      you will have evap codes unless the evap is deleted from the ecm programming. same as secondary air. pcv and n249 is ok as long as resistored.

      is the computer flashed for emissions delete?
      Doesnt matter if you have resistors in the solenoid plugs or not, The programming still sees that there is incorrect secondary and evap flow.

      Yes the magical Ecu box was sent out to santa's workshop for emissions deletes.
      Like I just said. I have emissions deletes.

      so the answer is, NO, you have not had your ecm programmed for emissions deletes

      I swear whenever I have a technical question people here give advise like calling tech support....."try rebooting the computer"

      The Ecu has all emissions deleted. Yes yes and yes.

      I am not annoyed, I was assuming you had the incorrect flow CEL which is caused by the N80 valve (Evaporative Vacuum Purge Valve) since you have all the emission deletes. Most people don't remove the LDP rather cap the hose that runs into the engine bay:



      I have all emission deletes and I still had to resistor the N80 valve much like or jump the pins, whatever works.

      just an FYI, the leak detection pumps only purpose is to pressurize the gas tank and charcoal canister to check for leaks.

      This question was probably already asked but do you need the resistors if your running say Maestro with the emissions components disabled?
