      VW_Pilot apparently still sells the CSW chip. This chip works well for the price, however doesn't fix alot of the problems, but for the money, drivability is increased. Here is the link to his post: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=284195

      Link = "Forum disabled" is this still available?

      from the factory, only the 16v motors are interference. But here's a tip, rotate your motor 90 degrees from TDC (top dead center) and all your pistons will be level about 2" from your valves. as 2 go down, 2 go up, that way they all meet halfway through the stoke. one of them on combustion, one on intake, one on exhaust and one on compression

      i got my jeta to 205 km/h with 3 people and lotsa junk in the trunk lol, only mod was coilovers

      Ok i have a quesion about the 1987 BMW 535i afm, does the digi 2 computer actually understand what more than WOT on a stock afm is? cus if you have the bmw one in there it will give the potential for more airflow, and i cant see why the digi computer would understand it, its not really meant for it

      a cam with a G stamped on it does not make it the G-grind solid lifter cam that people rave abt. most 8v cams have that G stamp.

    14. 09-08-2007 11:28 PM #84

      I hope this is the correct forum to post in. I am new to the boards.

      I have an 1986 Jetta GL (Gas) Manual 5 speed, that will start then after about 30 secs stalls.
      Also if you start the engine then hit the gas peddle it will stall.


      I have done the following:

      - Replaced Spark Plugs
      - Replaced Battery
      - Checked Air Filter
      - Checked Oil
      - Checked distributor cap (needle looks new)
      - Checked vacuum lines
      - Checked battery cables
      - Checked fuses
      - Checked Clutch peddle to see if it is engaging

      Now if I try to start the car a couple of times I can smell fuel, then its flooded. So doesn't that mean its getting gas? Also the car has been sitting for 2 years outdoors. What else do I need to check. The Coil? Could it be the starter even though it starts then stalls?

      Any help would be appreciated
      thanks
      D

      I had the exact same problem.. take off your Fuel dist (the thing on the air box with the steel lines) and make sure your needle isnt sticking there is a spring behind that needle and you might need some fuel...

      first off by "type 2 or type 3" you mean mk1,mk2 (mark 2) and mk3, mk4, mk5? for jetta and golf its mk1,2,3,4,5. and yes ive heard by installing the mk3 front subframe on a mk2(or maybe just the longer control arms) and rear axle beam you can extend your stance. but i have not seen this in person yet and i know you need longer front axles to make the longer control arms work.

      can i put a 1.8 8v haed on a 1.6?

      Can someone Chime in on this?

      I would also like to know what is necessary to put a 1.8L Solid lifter head on a 1.6L - 1.7L block.

      IIRC, it is necessary to plug up one or two oil drains in the 1.8L head. But I would like an expert to confirm...

      GOD i hope your talking about ignition timing

      but still too much, i was told 12 degrees advance for ignition is prime for CIS-E cars.

      I had a question for you I asked Geroge of Toywagen and this was his response to using a stock non-ac pulley on a 90 jetta.... obviously there is a discrepancy of what will work......any further info you can offer will be helpful thanks

      If you use the stock non-ac pulley you need to change the other pulleys as well(crank). My pulley lines up the belt with the crank pulley that is there already. All you have to do to change it over is change the alt pulley and belt.

      Apparently this does not work on Jettas if your looking for a long term solution

      pretty sure the g grind is gti solid lifter only, if it ahs the big G on it its probobly not the Gti cam.

    35. 05-09-2008 05:55 PM #105
      my 92 gti 8v hydraulic cam has a G stamped on it, i was under the impression that 90-92 gti came with that cam stock, the biggest one of the mk2's.
