      What will you do with all those 02 sensors?? You used to have three on each side, one before cat, one between cats, and one after cats, is that true??
      Now you only have one cat, and you go into one pipe much sooner...

      Well we have elimated the other four. The primary o2 sensors are the important ones.They control adjustments and fueling. The other four check to see the emmissions wernt tamperd with (ex punching the cats) so they will throw up the engine light when the cat is not working. I will program them out of the ecu. If it cant be done ill put them in the exaust behind the cat.

      The green coolant is only an issue if you have G12 in the system, G12 when mixed with any other coolant blend actually turns into an acidic mixture and corrodes anything aluminum or alloy....By itself the Green coolant is fine...

      update .. made a bracket for the fuel pressure regulator hooked up the fuel lines and started the car up. IT STARTS but shuts down b/c of the immoblizer. Now its time to send the cpu out for programing

      update

      I cut out the rebar for the foglights. Then sand blasted and powdercoated the rebar. I installed all the lights and front end. My euro lip came from EPP it was folded in 2 places when they shipped it. Fail ! I ended getting one from the stealership FTW. Now its starting to look like a car. Im waiting on the ecu. Next ill make a intake pipe and box.
      heres some pics.

      ok...unsubcribe. I don't believe you have the motor or any motor except for the one that came out of that thing. We usually see the motor after a certain time. Is this a wish list? Did you really mean 1.6L 4-speed Corrado build? Just asking. There is a guy who is actually doing it and showing what he is doing for the people who are thinking about doing this. I am switching channels. Thank you and good night. boooooooo [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthdown.gif[/IMG]
      well i do have a life outside the vortex ......thanks for comming out

      Thanks ERD for making me eat crow. That thing is looking good and coming along excellent. I was thinking back to your comment above and the same happened to me..."life outside the vortex". So accept my humble apologies for being the typical vortex ass. I am back to normal now. lol SUBSCRIBED!!!


      I might hit you with some questions (a lot of questions) because I might change up from 2.8 to a 3.6 (or 3.4) if I can find one. Great build.

      Update....
      I was just about to ship my ecu out, and this guy(from unitronic) that was doing a 2.0t swap in a corrado said he has done the immo defeat before on the med 9.1. I wanted proof. None was provided. He begged me to do the immo defeat and said he can do it. Ok i gave him a chance. I shipped my ecu to Unitronic on april 15. They said they can do immo defeat should take about a week. 6 weeks go by and i have not herd from them. I inquire wat was going on and they said they are still working on it. I then asked why its taking so long. Then he said they had trouble doing the immo defeat. Give more time. Im now thinking this guy was lying, but i gave 2 more weeks. I inquire again he said we cant do it..........ship back my ecu. UNITRONIC CANT DO IMMO DEFEAT ON MED 9.1.. next i contact revo. They said they never did that one before and dont want to do it. I then contact the shop overseas they will do it, but then i got a call from one of the software enginers here and they have a guy that can do it. I meet the guy we chatted he told me he has not done this before but he can do it. I gave in my ecu. One week later i had my ecu back he said 95% that the immo was defeated. I go home to try it.

      On this day henceforth July 25 2010 18:03 hrs the MIGHTY CORRADO roared to life. The immo defeat was a success. WE have technology , there are great tuners here in Canada that do the impossible. Next stage is tuning and ill post pics and vids of REAL PROOF unlike other SHlT talkers, this swap is possible WITH FSI and stock ecu.

      for some reason the unitronic bench flashed immob defeats dont take, only my personal experience.

      Woohoo! Congrats ... I would have thought that Revo could have worked that ECU.. or did I read that wrong and it was one of the Revo people you ended up working with? Unless you're waiting to see how well everything works, this seems like a great bit of advertising for whoever did the immo defeat...

      thank you , but revo DID NOT have anything to do with this @ all. It was a small private company here Toronto that took the time and did the work. None and i stress NONE of the big companies had anything to do with my ecu.

      First off this is a sick project. But I have to disagree with your experience with Unitronic. I spoke to them at waterfest last year a week later I sent Mike S. my 2.0T FSI Ecu, engine code BPY, and he had it back to me in 5 business days with a stage 3 tune, immo defeat, vss and 02 exceptions written in and no ABS controller interface. it worked perfect right out of the box and the Unitronic guys were easy to deal with through the whole process.
