      hey guys, 2.0 16v with ce2 going into my Caddy truck, Im trying to finish up the swap and get her started, its really close....Im going to lay out all the info I have on parts used and what Ive completed as I have a few questions and problems that Im trying to diagnose, trying to get this thing running over this weekend, I work from home so Ive been tinkering on it off and on all day this week, mk2 and mk1 Bentley in hand along with a2 resources printed out....check it out.....

      trying to get it turn over with the key but...
      my starter is just clicking when I turn the key, battery is brand new and I just recharged it all night, fuel pump does the same thing, relay clicks and I metered 12v at the pump, I have 2 other pumps I could try...

      other things I need to figure out: not sure if I have all my relays for the fuse box, I will need to figure out my vacuum lines and hook up my radiator which shouldnt be to bad...

      please feel free to post up any info or tips you may have to share that could be helpful, I fully appreciate it!

      My first place to look would be the ignition coil wiring

      Make sure you have a ignition coil ground going from the coil bracket to valve cover

      & get your vaccum lines and radiator filled before you try again, but I suspect the coil plug,
      Check all your fuses..

      Are you using the original caddy fuse panel or ce2?

      Ce2 is a good choice I've heard for turboing

      Really nice caddy I like the sea foam green

      so I have a burnt up blue with yellow wire that I beleive is for the coolant temp sensor, and what I think is the coolant temp sensor on the side of the head(it was missing when I got the motor), the one I had fits as it uses the smaller outiside nut, but it used the sliding post connector as seen in this pic, I think its from a 16v 1.8 Scirocco motor....

      is that the right sensor? and is that blue yellow wire the one that goes to it?

      Thats a coolant temp sender (not sensor as in the CTS) & should be yellow/red. Coolant and oil will look the same and have different sized bolt/nut heads depending on manf. You either need to be able to read the number or see a temp rating on it to be sure. A new one is like $5 or so.

      The coolant temp sensor (CTS) was only blue/yellow on us golf wiring. Not CE2. I didn't look too hard, but I didn't see a blue/yellow on any of my EM or power side harness. Which CTS are you using?

      Blue/Yellow could be EGR... what year did you pull the EM harness from?

      lots of stuff hooked up but I am still sorting the vacuum line setup, looks like the egr valve is missing and a sensor/sender on the head is too and possibly some other part that mounts to the head right near it....

      this is the dpr valve right? where does the vac line for it go to?

      egr was mounted here at some point?

      that sensor/sender I screwed in has got to be the wrong one, going to vw to see what I can find out...I need a couple hoses too...you can see where there was something mounted to the head as well...

      went to A-German here in San Jose and there happen to be a '90 GLI in the lot and I got to take a look and it close up, had no egr and nothing mounted near the coolant flange or a sensor/sender in that spot where I thought one was missing, ordered a couple coolant hoses that should be here tommorow...

      truck runs and I have been driving it! still more to do, but very driveable for now, although I must not have an oil sender hooked up as my gauge cluster is buzzing constantly and I cant seen to find what wires they are, gotta look again....

      update: (for anybody who cares or is doing/done a swap like this)

      was dealing with a really bad, high idle for this 16v, it was idleing great, then out of nowhere it was high around 2000 plus , cleaned the isv, nothing, swapped the isv, nothing, looked around and found a broken wire on the other side of the idle switch, fixed it and so far idle is good...

      mounted my turn signal stalks/ switch (mk2) to my mk1 column, trimmed of the metal mount posts, it fits tight but is ok, hooking my signals and horn up soon...

      my smog is coming up at the end of month so Im asking around...
