Replaced my cat.. and it fixed my idle.. But I still have a weird misfiring sometimes?!?!?!?
Stock trigger system is fine for triggering 5 coils on a standalone...not on stock ecu though of course.
I ordered some new tri-tip copper plugs today to see if that clears up my misfire/sloppy power.
If that doesnt fix it, then it almost HAS to be something in the ecu (i doubt it). I have 5 brand new coils, 5 brand new plug wires, and thats all that there is to the ign system.
The car currently has some random copper single electrode plugs (they are new tho)
Put the tri electrode plugs in today and damn she rips!
Also fixed a minor boost leak.
Took some logs of my misfire issue, and then it went away strangely...still trying to figure out why Megatune hates my computer
also took some pics from my cellphone...posted in the pic thread
Replaced my rad... only with a used one.. but hey.. it does not leak With some nice new coolant And looked into my misfireing.. well it appears that its more likley that the injectors are acting up. So my first guess with misfiring might have been wrong.
Oh forgot to say last time I also changed my oil I tryed to put the big vw diesel filter on for better protection. Becasue it same spindle and everything just a bit bigger filter. But since how the block is made, there is not enough clearence.
Today... I tried to open one of my rear doors and my door handle broke Oh well I have a ton. I just need to find it lol. When I'm back.
Hopefully this will happen soon..
I looked into junk yards in hungary so I can find some e-code headlights from an audi 200
Also wanting to replace my OLD OLD OLD fuel filter.. Only god knows how old that is... I know its way older than 4 years old.
Its been a productive day for me.
Put all the stock ECU stuff back on. (I think the fact that I got everything right the first time [firing order on dizzy correct, crank trigger wires in right configuration, O2 swapped out, MAF plugged in, stock ecu hooked up, etc] means that I've done it one too many times.)
Got an alignment this morning (was like .65 degrees off on both fronts), and the car feels much better now, and I have peace of mind about my new tires not going bad early.
Also picked up some Royal Purple and a Mann filter along with a low side R12 to R134 a/c fitting.
I tried to fill with R134 to no avail. I had the low pressure switch jumped in order to have the comp spinning while trying to fill it, but it didn't seem like it was taking it. I think maybe the fitting I have didn't seat right or something. Darnnn
Oh well, A/C is a luxury.
At least the rest of the car is solid enough for me to feel comfortable driving it for 4 hours 2x this week.
Yep i have the GTQ 2.0+ bar chip.
Installed New front and rear Door Panels, center armrest , Front seats and Rear Headrests. Nice Brown Interior now ratehr then the fading tan.
Anyone have a Brown Cloth Rear Bench seat in good shape ?
Picked up a set of 16 x 6.5 ET33 Tiguan Steel wheels. Had some tires kicking around the ship. They look pretty cool. BUt will look alot nicer onces it's lowered.. and painted flat army green. Also found out why i had a bad clunking noise... rear diff mount was snapped !! SO welded it back up for now. ALso the rear strut had snapped at the base too.. so looks like i'll be buying new rear shocks while i do my springs.
Got a almost complete brown interior in mint shape !! Only thing missing is the back bench... i have the headrests though... figure that out. Got it for free from the PO. Have some issues to work out with the front seats but not a big deal.. have the original interor that worked perfect to play with. Digging the brown alot more then the faded tan.
SO if anyone knows of or has a brown rear bench kicking around.... please msg me !!!!
Was checking around one day and saw that the ground from the front of the engine to the body was pretty brutal looking. so i sprayed it down with contact cleaner and cleaned it up.. can seemed to run alot better and not hesitate. So i will be replacing both engine grounds with 0 gauge wire....hoping maybe this helps
Had my coolant bottle spring a leak at work one day.... so got a new one of those too lol.
Still waiting for my friend to get back to install my chip...
