Does anyone know anything about the ACE engine code found in the european Audi 80 16v 2.0l produced between '92-'95 (audi B4), does anyone know if it is Motronic: programmable for turbocharging without using standalone?

not sure about where to find specific information. however, swapping a 2.0 16v into a mk1 is relatively easy, except for the dash wiring. motor mounts are simple as they were made for a 16v engine to go into a mk1 chassis (mkII sciroccos came with 16v's, see my previous post about the mk1 motor mounts).
sorry, I don't know much about dash wiring in mk1's, so I would just swap as much of the mkII harness as I could.
basically, you'd have to figure out a way to get the rear wiring harnesses to work with a mkII fuse box and front engine harness, or get a mkII engine bay harness to work with the mk1 fuse box and harness. I'm not really sure which would be the easiest to do.
but, get all the mk1 motor mounts, a mk1/mk2 or mk1 only transmission (again, see previous post about motor mounts), figure out the wiring, and you're done. relatively simple.
additionally, a 2.0L in a mk1 is awesome! I've ridden in a few, and they sure do FLY.

what style of block you have shouldn't matter, provided you can fit the proper oil pressure sensors onto it. where the injection system really matters is in the style of head that you put on the block, and even then, not so much. you can run a 16v on motronic, jetronic, digi1, or digi2. all the various information on the particulars for each swap can be found on the vortex by searching.
actually i wasn't asking about the engine but the car model and the fuel system runing it! yes true you could run 16v on jetronic to a certain point, digi 1 & digi 2 you have to rewire and motronic probably just burn a chip and may be a map sensor i am not sure that is why im asking. i tried search but no luck. why would head style matter

I tried to check all of the archives and I can't find an answer for this one, I am almost done with my digifant 2 16V conversion and need to know what throttle cable do I actually use? I decided to go with the Scirocco 16V intake becuase of my car being a Cabriolet but now I need to know what cable and cable bracket do I use to mount it... I have 3 other things I need to finish up to get this car going... Some of the techies must know about this one....
Pics help too....
so I have a 16v 2.0 out of a 91 gli in my 84 mk1 jetta
I pulled the injectors out and cranked it over adn no fuel came out.
Is there a diagram for routing hte hoses? I want to make sure they are all going the places they should
It was an 8v car and they retroed the 16v in. I have wires everywhere and I have about 3 or so that I dont know where they go is there a wiring PICTURE showing where ALL the connections are and go?
This car ran until a friend started unhooking things for a motor pull. now it dont run. anyone have any help or ideas. I have a bentley but its so far been no help.
thanks in advance,
As for the no fuel problem, the injectors only work when the intake is at vacuum (the pistons sucking air in), which raises the fuel plate. No injectors=a big ******** in the intake! Try manually raising the plate with the key in the "On" position, stuff should come out then.
hi, i think i am almost ready to swap my new 16v 2.0L engine in to my 91mk2 gti(8v). just a few things.
what motor mounts will i need? the 1990 passat motor mounts or the mk2 gti motor mounts? and i will be installing my engine without the ac compressor and without power steering. so the bracket is really only there to support my alternator. also does anyone know of a site that sells the adapter for my alternator pulley? i heard i need some kind of adapter to run my alternator with out the ac and power steering.
fuel rails do i need to get a new one? a 16v one?
You can go three routes to get rid of AC:
1. Get the non-AC bracket. It moves the alternator to the factory non-AC location, but is tough to locate and expensive.
2. Cut the top half of the bracket off, and install the alternator where the AC compressor used to be. THis is almost exactly like no. 1, but much cheaper.
3. Use a bigger belt on the factory alternator location (mine used a 42" belt), and use the 8v alternator pulley from a car with AC. CHeap, easy, it's what I did and it works fine after 3000 miles so far.

does anyone still know what motor mounts ill need? my cars a mk2 gti and my engines a 90passat. do i go buy mk2 gti mountS?
Questions like these are much better suited to a thread, not the FAQ.
IIRC the mounts are the same, standard VW hydro. The blocks are the same, so you could use your old 8v bracketry bolted to the 16v.

1.8L 16v = 10:1 CR
2.0L 16v = 10.8:1 CR
IT'S NOT BASED ON THE BLOCK, IT'S BASED ON THE MANAGEMENT. iF YOU HAVE A 2.0 BLOCK UNDER THE 1.8 HEAD (AND THE OLDER 1.8 MANAGEMENT), YOU CAN ONLY USE THE FUEL ENRICHMENT MOD.
I had the caps lock on, I'm sorry, but I'm not retyping it
For a second there I thought you were will ferrel in that snl skit where he can't control the monotone volume of his voice lol. Thanks man, so the 1.8 managment doesnt use an ecu right? Thats what I heard and was wondering how accurate it is

No, you can't upgrade them at all.
It's a complicated system, but they're seperate and independent, and "stupid", if you will. They need to be tricked to run differently Motronic brains are "smart" and can learn and adapt, and accept different programming.
But the FAQ isn't the place for this sort of thing, get your module and go with it
Is there a big difference in performance between the 2.0l and 1.8l 16v? since you cant chip the 1.8, how does the fuel enrichment compare with a chip on a 2.0l? Is the chip a lot better or what

If im not mistaken, the 1.8 has a 800 rpm higher rev range than the 2.0l, but the 2.0 has more HP.
just wondering, the adjusting bracket the alternator is hanging from, is that the oem one, it looks alot longer than normal. Also, why did you cut the mounting bracket? couldnt you have just moved the alt down to where the a/c was? Thanks man

He did mount the alternator where the AC was. You have to cut the old alternator mounts because they get in the way, and won't let the alternator move like it should. He also might have used the non-AC upper bracket, but I'm not sure. I've heard you can just cut the slider a little longer? Would be nice if you can just use the stock one!
Here's a great AC delete thread:
