      like i said, either digi1 or obd2 is the way to go. i have a digi1 ecu and harness i'd let go for next to nothing or hit up zeb and i'm sure he can score you the obd2 harness and ecu from coover for pretty cheap. feel free to ask if you have any questions cause i've done a few different wiring swaps and am more than versed in the ways of obd2 turbo setups.
      pm me about the harness and ecu and maybe ill come check it out. im leaning on digi1. and yeah zeb is a good friend of mine, he might actually sell me his ecu and harness since he has bigger and better plans for his car.

      thanks alot man!

      most people that see or hear what i do or just even talk to me dont belive im only 17, which i think is weird because im pretty sure i look younger than i am,
      oh well

      on another note, my engine is still at the shop. the engine builder said this is the worst time of year for them
      but he reassured me that it should be done VERY soon!

      not a problem, some ppl start very young , i started at 16 myself, 12 years later i'm still doing it and making a living off of it, the greatest part is its not work, because i love what i do, keep at it and before you know it you won't need an engine shop you can do it yourself good luck with the build, i'm staying tuned

      i know ive slacked alittle on updates but i assure you i havent been slacking on the car. i picked up a digi1 harness and began swapping them out. as i unplugged the digi2 harness, i plugged in the matching plugs on the digi1 harness.


      when i had the digi2 harness completely out i looked at what i had left. the digi1 harness has a few more little plugs than the digi2 so i started matching up. i figured out two of them but i cant seem to find any place for the last 3.

      can anyone help me out with this?


      Colors in order from left to right: orange/white, purple/black, blue/white

      if there are any digi1 guru's out there PLEASE help! im going to do some other research to try to figure out what these are. as soon as i know i can start the wire tuck

      Thanks for reading!

      Digi 1 sucks, I've been down that road. To the point where I was making my own files, burning chips and could never get it to run right.

      Went ms1 with spark and haven't looked back. Ive got a ton of info if you want to pm me for the specifics.

      im eventually planning on ms but i cant seem to find a setup even relatively close to what i can afford at the time. the digi1 was local and didnt cost me much at all so i figure even if it doesnt run well at first, itll be some good practice with wire tucking. atleast until i can afford standalone

      id have more updates, but im still waiting on the engine shop to spend the whole 2 hours to put the IM shaft bearings in.

      At the very least make sure you get a 16v specific file, as they run way less timing due to a more efficient head design. Running a 16vt with an 8v timing map is a good way to put pistons in your oil pan.

      I'm the smoke for tits dude lol I also run ms1v3 with spark on my vrt Corrado. I've played around with g60's with chip tuning on digi 1 and I would definitely go with something a little more sofisticated.

      no, theyre rotas.

      progress has been alittle slow, but its all for a good reason. Picked up an 89 jetta diesel today for a good price. i need a sign that says smoke for tits

      i would have pics, but photobucket isnt agreeing with me right now

      the hub is 'a little' bit of a pain, because it has to be in a certain spot to put it on. but once you get used to it, it is actually pretty cool. i think it works alot like an NRG but ive never seen one in person so im not sure. just go on ebay and search "quick release hub" theres a bunch to choose from.

      on another note..... 89 jetta diesel content



      enjoy!

      im going to take my time wiring since its my first attempt at a tuck. im only hoping it will be fun! i havent even rolled it outside yet to see it in the sun. its been blocked most of the time by one of the other volkswagens in the growing family of cars at my house

      ill see what i can do though, just for some viewing pleasure.
