      Nope. Won't pass visual unless the tech is very careless.

      Just curious, how did you deal with the SAI? I don't see it in any of your pics.

      I never put the SAI back in. GA doesn't require visual inspection.
      BUT, you could go the extra mile and use the SAI pump bracket and hoses from an 1.8T to relocate the pump down near the oil pan. Then do some custom piping to the back of the exhaust mani. The mani has a threaded port you could use. I just plug it with a bolt.

      I'm sorry, I should have been more specific - I figured you'd just relocated it since I couldn't see it. If you eliminated it, and are running stock management, do you have a CEL? Or do you know a trick for not tripping the CEL (resistor or otherwise?)

      No. I know there's a period of time after you clear codes and when the ECU runs the SAI diagnostic test on the SAI enough times to throw a DTC and CEL. I reset the codes and force all readiness codes except SAI. GA emissions allows for one readiness to be failed/incomplete. So, I got it tested with all but that one SAI readiness code set and before the incorrect flow DTC shows up.
      CEL shows up eventually.
      Why would a visual inspection fail if the SAI is present, just relocated. Do the inspectors know where the SAI pump is located for ever model and engine?

      it wouldn't, it would fail for having the wrong cylinder head in place, plus a diiferent intake, omong other things. california sucks. on second thought you probably would fail just for moving the air pump, even if you kept it.
      this is what VW should have done from the factory in the mk4's, but maybe a cleaner looking intake and some work on the head. The AEG and later 2.0's are the worst engines ever, I would rather have a G60 without the charger.

      this: http://www.bahnbrenner.com/vw_..._to_3
      plus the TB side of this: http://www.bahnbrenner.com/vw_...MkIII - call them, they will sell just the TB flange.
      and a silicone coupler.

      I called them and asked about one earlier today, they said it wasn't available.
      Tonight I'm ordering my BBM parts and pulling the motor. Hopefully everything goes smoothly... just found out my machinist closed shop and moved to Utah three weeks ago so I need to find someone else I trust to do my machine work...
      Edit: Just called BBM again, apparently the adapter isn't available after all. They're sold out and none are scheduled to be machined until next month at the soonest. x2

      I used BWW or BEV injectors with a 4bar fpr only because they don't need a fresh-air hose running to them.

      Any chance it might make more power with a dual-spray cone injector? The smallest ones on USRT's website are 315cc units; dunno if that'd be too much for the stock management to compensate for. Maybe stock 1.8t units would work?
