      I am throwing two codes for manifold pressure. I have NO charge piping hooked up, MAP isn't hooked up, no pipe off the turbo(one that recirculates DV/n75) and the car dies after 5 seconds of running. Anyone help?

      here are my codes-

      p0238 - manifold pressure/boost sensor(g31): signal too high.
      p0106 - manifold/barometric pressure sensor (g71)/(f96) implausible signal.
      it's not that I can't do it, it's that I don't know how yet...

      You just answered your own question.

      Get that MAP sensor in the loop.

      MAF, VVT, N112, N80, N75, N249, SAI, etc wont cause the car to not run when disconnected.

      MAP needs to be there to even run in open loop.

      IMMO off.

      I think the turbo is bad.

      the goofy wind during shut off.

      now I am fighting with a small coolant hose. this one to be exact.

      problem is; I am using the manual coolant flange with the auto hard pipes from the water pump. so the hose is literraly about a 1/4" too small. any ideas? Only thing I can think of is switching back to an automatic coolant flange then I'll be ok. Unless the manual one is slightly longer.
      it's not that I can't do it, it's that I don't know how yet...

      This plus a metal funnel or some other cone shape that you can jam in there while you heat it up. I don't know how much play you will get out of the hose if it is renforced. I had to do this to a coolant line once. The other problem is making sure it does not shrink back down.

      Right. I have the BBM front mount and the old stock hood cleared - with a simple modification. I took the vac hose connection on the top of the intake manifold off, threaded the hole for a "flush" bolt, and then all was good.

      so here it is...officially.

      using the automatic 1.8t water pipes and a manual coolant flange I needed another 1"-to-3/4" coolant hose in a 90 bend. VW doesn't sell the hose separate, so I attempted to cut and splice in a section of copper pipe to make it longer to work with the manual flange. wrong. VW wanted $160 for the water pipes with the manual coolant hoses. F-that. So I traveled up to the local Auto Value and they ordered me what I wanted for $12. Got it and cut it to fit and it barley fits. Slightly bends in where the bend is. So I will more than likely have to switch back to the auto coolant flange for it to work flawlessly.





      also found a local drag shop (that I didn't know existed) and they happen to have a few tach adapters on stock, so I picked up a MSD 8920 for $60. Seems pretty straight forward.
      black-ground; red-power; white-tach signal from ecm; purple-g1/12.
      done.

      it's not that I can't do it, it's that I don't know how yet...

      Well, as I have no oil cooler water lines - that was not a problem. I use a sandwich adapter and a real oil cooler.

      Decided since I still need intercooler piping that I am going to rig up the stock side mount for now. It's going to be a long 850miles before the clutch is broken in anyway. Stock SMIC and stock tune should do the clutch good until break in. Then I'll put my FMIC in once I get more piping and a stage 2 tune. Hopefully by then I'll be stacking more big turbo goodies up.

      body work coming soon

      you talking about this one?



      doesn't seem like the cooler would be doing anything lol but if that works I may just do that for the time being.

      Looks like high IAT to me. You will need at least some air flow over the core to help exchange the heat from the charged air to the air flowing through and around the intercooler. High IAT and pistons like to melt.

      For a temporary fix doesn't sound bad but permanent I see an issue specially if you are getting a chip. I would actuallymake a scoop on the bbottom of it to capture the air behind the head light.
