      Well Holistah did most of the work back then. It did take a few hours to get everything sorted out and cleaned. I'll keep this updated as often as possible.

      Amazing! Thanks so much in advance.
      Now that this information is available, I'm sure my Jetta will break more often.

      The "Gasser tach conversion to diesel tach" link is outdated. The new link to that is http://www.vwdiesel.net/forum/index.php?topic=3741.0

      I found out the VWDiesel.net changed the forum programming much like the VWVortex did.

      Just helping out.
