54 not getting power is the issue. should trace back to G2/9. gets power from 30-30B jump
The g2 pin was loose. Once I got it back on there was still no pulse at the ecu so I ordered a new ecu. And it got in today.
I also Installed my tt tuning exhaust yesterday and tore apart the front end again for the final touches.
I'll post pics today of the progress, also what radiator, fan, and lower rad support are you vr guys using? I have the mk2 support with mk2 fans and Corrado g60 rad and can't quite get it to sit right.
I Replaced the ecu today and still nothing!!! The fuel pump is buzzing and I know I have pressure to the lines.
There is .4ohms in the wire from the injector to where the main harness connects near cylinder 3. And the ecu is pulsing. But from the #2 pin on the ecu to the connector half that goes into the side of the engine i don't have power.
Im assuming the wire is frayed where the main harness t's off towards the fusebox, ecu, and engine.
Other then that frustrating bit I gave up on repacking the driver side cv and I couldn't connect the power steering lines. So not a very productive day
Pics of progress anyways
And a video of not starting haha in case you want to just hear my starter http://i337.photobucket.com/albums/n...2/36b38f0c.mp4
brake fluid reservoir, cap, and grommets*
Lower rad hose
Door handles, caps, and gaskets
2 10" electric fans and mounts
Data link port
Rad flange and gasket
Intake boot and air mass meter
Hopefully it gets here soon!
Will obd2 passats start when the mass air flow sensor is not installed?
Thanks tex hope to be driving before the end of summer
Got my obd2 port almost installed, but I ran out of wire connectors
Also installed the intake boot, just need to extend wires for the maf
Can someone tell me where this vacuum line goes?
And gotta support gap, good people, good prices, and quick shipping
And my quick fix for radiator lines until I can afford better ones
One step forward and ten steps back
Got to love some vag and data port connections.
New slim fans
Now I have to run the length of the fuel injector wiring and find what is keeping me from starting
Tried this panoramic photograph app on my iPhone and it just proves I do t have a steady hand
One last video to show how it is supposed to sound haha
got my injectors to pulse, turns out it was a bad ground, so i was all excited to finally have it running when i tried to turn it over and still nothing
The fuel is going through the fuel rail and stopping before coming out of the injectors, even when i ran a direct wire from the battery the injectors for them to fire.
I assume the injectors are clogged because they are rusty and dirty and just ordered new ones.
Hopefully Ill have them by the end of the week and i can get this thing running. By the end of this build i will have replaced just about every item that can wear out
Cant wait till i turn 21 and can drink the tears away
Got two questions
Can i run wheels that are 16x8 ET15 without having to do fender work? if i can what tires will i need.
Also where can i buy the hydraulic line that goes from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder?
Thanks for the help
Well today was a brilliant day because the little ol girl started right up after replacing the fuel injectors
Apparently the previous owner tried to run E85 and clogged all 6 injectors.
Ghetto azz fwd/aft shifter linkage Fix
If you want to see a video where I get overly excited then you got it!
Yeah I know a little dramatic but who cares.
Expect some nice photos soon. And I'm just waiting till payday to order me these wheels
16x8 et30 esm 009r
Now for tuning...
Ran into a pretty funny slip up, my timing was off a tooth on the crankshaft. Had to remove the tranny to get to the chain as most of you know. Kind of a pain in the a** but got it running correctly and hopefully I can get it out of storage by the end of the week. Also got my new wheels and tires. So I don't have to be seen in public with my cool fast and furious rimz haha
What cable can I use to run my speedo? And where do I need to get a tach module so I can see my revs?
I am here: http://tapatalk.com/map.php?0y405k
Got my new wheels today and just need a few other things before I start driving it.
Here is the video of it running
My new daily driver
Got 4 new tires too
I am here: http://tapatalk.com/map.php?otpcjx
time for some sh*tty picture overload!
took the ol girl on the maiden voyage today and there still are some issues, the lifter knock has gone away, and it idles really well. But the linkage is all sorts of wacky, first gear is where reverse is, and third and fourth gears are now where first and second are supposed to be. not sure how much adjusting i can do for this style linkage. any advice?
also after driving my mk4 for so long i forgot how low i am in the jetta and i popped the exhaust off when i was driving back into the unit.
but i did get some pics and hopefully i can fix a few other things and drive this by the end of the week. she needs a bath badly.
Man i need a nice camera
Thanks guys for all the support and help. enjoy some good fireworks,good food, and great beer tonight everyone
First of all, great build and pics. Now I have couple of questions.
- what throttle cable did you use? speedo cable?
- how did you wire up the rear lights and license plates lights?
- did you upgrade the motor mounts?
- did that exhaust clamp connecting the cat to the rest of the exhaust work well?
I had to put mine up for a little bit but I plan to have it done before the end of September. Thanks for taking those clear pics. I will probably react the same way on my first start.
Sorry for the delayed response, I've been kinda busy.
1. I'm using the b4 passat throttle cable and it worked just fine, the throttle cable is supposed to be g60 Corrado I believe, I just use my phones speedometer app
2. The only part of the wiring harness I removed was from the engine may bay forward. So the tail light wiring was the same old one
3. It's oem but I need to upgrade them. My engine leans back towards the transmission on hard pulls.
4. I have had no issue with Techtonics tuning exhaust clamps. But I'm still a little weary of them.
I hope this helps
