    Thread: g60 FAQ - Read this first!

    1. 02-06-2003 09:11 AM #1
      Hello everyone-
      At the request of the masses, here's an FAQ for the g60 forum. For now, most of the content will be copied out of the FAQ in the Corrado forum, but I'd love it if we could develop some more in-depth stuff to have in here. If anyone's willing to do writeups or pictorals on common (or not so common!) procedures, or anything like that, please let me know.
      g60 topics:
      -Rebuilding the g60 Charger
      -BOV's, the boost return hose, and related topics
      -Turbo conversions for the g60 Corrado
      -16v g60 Information
      -Checking the boost on your MFA, What boost you should have with different pullies, etc.
      -Overview of g60 modifications
      -4 lug to 5 lug conversion (ie, swapping the 5-lug setup from the SLC on to a g60)
      -Removing the g60 charger
      -Automatic to Manual transmission conversions
      -Removal of the bumper and stock intercooler
      -Motor mount options - OEM and aftermarket
      -Exhaust systems
      -Coolant Flushing
      -20v Head with PG block..

      here nigels writeup on the g60 harness [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]


      this harness is from a syncro passat but we used a Corrado bentley manual to figure out where everything goes. If you want a larger picture so you can read the labels better just ask and i will e-mail them to you.
      To get the harness to this stage i soaked the harness in superclean and HOT water. this made the insulation more flexable and removes the tape and dirt much easier.
      be carefull cutting the outer covering off
      any way here is the wiring key moving in a clock wise manner from the bottom left
      Fuel Rail-Brown/Yellow stripe, solid Red goes to #87 on the fuel pump relay
      Red/Green strip- goes to #50 recieves +12v during starting
      Terminal 1 on coil (negative -)- solid Green wire larger diameter, has a specific plug for the coil
      *Heated O2 sensor- solid purple (signal), soild black (ground), brown with black stripe (ground), Red with white stripe recieves power from #87 on the fuel pump relay
      AC- solid Green but small diameter wire with yellow plug (not to be confused with the coil negative) goes to a switch in the of the interior of car the lets the brain know to idle higher because of the increased drag of the AC compressor ( i will be deleting this from my harness but http://www.snstuning.com use it to activate some of the special features available on their custom chips)
      Knock Sensor-i did not label it because if you cannot recognize which connector it is you should not be attempting this project in the first place
      ISV or Idle Stabilizer Valve- Solid White/ Black with Yellow stripe recives power from #15 which is switched 12V +.
      The ISV can be succesfully eliminated for those looking to reduce the complexity of the harness, it will idle alittle rough on cold days however the blk/ylw wire will still need to be powered
      Air Temperature/CO potentiometer- Blue solid, Blue with White stripe, Brown with White stripe
      Throttle Switches- Brown with White stripe, Red with Black stripe (idle switch), Blue with Black stripe (Full throttle switch or Wide Open Throttle or WOT switch)
      Coolant Temperature Sensor- pretty blue plug, Brown with White stripe, Brown with Green stripe
      Distributor Hall Sensor- Brown with White stripe, Green with White stripe, Red with black stripe
      Yellow with Blue stripe, goes to #85 on fuel pump relay
      Brown and Brown with black stripe are grounds.

      *Note for those with passat harnesses- the black wire in the O2 sub harness is not grounded in the actual harness connection with the brain. But instead relies on a seperate ground in the engine bay. Corrado harnesses do groung this at the ecu connection plug. So don't use a corrado O2 sensor unless you go connect the ground at the head of the wire in the ecu connector plug.

      your words are like gold Nate, bling bling
      There are 4 different 02A trannies that will bolt up - two from g60 Corrados - the ATA that came on 1989's and 1990's, and the AYL that came on 91's and 92's.
      The 4-cyl Passat came with either an AYK or AGC tranny.
      As far as ratios, the final drive isn't the only difference between the 4. Sam's right, the difference between the common Corrado box (ATA, 3.64 final) and the common Passat box (AGC, 3.944 final) is only the final drive - the Passat has a shorter final, which means better acceleration at the cost of higher revs for a given speed and a lower top speed.
      But, the AYL and AYK trannies have more differences than just the final drive. They both have the taller 3.64 final drive from the ATA and the same gearset as eachother (AYL and AYK are more or less identical) but the gearset is different than the one used in the ATA and AGC. It's the same first gear, but shorter 2nd - 5th gears, so you more or less end up with ratios shorter than the ATA's - close to but a little teeny bit taller than the AGC's, but with a taller 1st gear.
      From tallest to shortest, here's the differences:
      ATA - 3.64 final and gearset most of us have
      AYK/AYL - 3.64 final but shorter gearset
      AGC - 3.944 final, and same gearset as ATA
      And if you were really creative, you could create a whole range of boxes by mixing the different individual cogs.
      Here's a chart of the gear ratios - first line for each box is the individual ratios, second line is the effective ratio (individual multiplied by final):
      _________Final______1_________2__________3________ 4________5
      ATA______3.684_____3.778_____2.105______1.345____0 .971_____0.795

      [NOTE: I live in the south where it's damn hot all the time. Some of you folks up North may not want to run such heavy oil when it's -30 outside. I would definitely recommend using the heaviest oil your climate allows.]

      Here's a checklist for when the oil pressure warning sounds. A lot of people say it only comes on when cornering. I fought with this for about 3 years on and off -- on both mine and PoweredbyG60's cars - so feel I've tried almost everything. Some of the G60 experts may scorn, but this has to be one of the suckiest problems when you're a new G60 owner.
      These are in order of simplicity. Eliminate the easy stuff first. Even if it doesn't help, hey it never hurts to have new oil [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      1. Oil and oil filter -- 20W50. Even though I recently forgot this. With lighter oil you will see lower oil pressures and possibly hear some valve chatter. Use the OEM filter. I tried several brands, only the OEM stopped the idiot light flashing.
      2. Oil pressure switches -- There are two. One on top of the oil filter housing and one on the right side of the head. I thought the ones from Autozone would work fine -- they don't. Most of the third party switches will be marked with a single pressure value. The OEM ones operate over a pressure range. They don't cost a fortune and again, can't hurt to take them out of the equation. Also, check the wiring to the pressure senders. After fixing my oil pressure problem, the warning and idiot light both went off driving to work this morning. Gauges reads good but I pull over to check anyway. The yellow wire from the sender on top of the oil filter housing is hanging free. Everytime it touched against the block and grounded the warning went off. (Or maybe it's the other way round.) Anyway, check for bad connections.
      056 919 081E -- 1.8 Bar, White
      068 919 081 -- 1.2 - 1.6 Bar, Black
      068 919 081A -- 1.9 Bar, Brown
      Still looking -- 0.25 Bar, Blue

      3. Oil pump snorkel may be blocked -- When I dropped my oil pan I found that somehow the plastic baffle was broken and bits of it had been chewed up by the crank. Plastic shavings completely blocked the feeder tube for the pump. Thank God there's a screen there.
      4. Rod bearings -- by this point, I hope you've installed an oil pressure gauge to confirm your low pressure. If so and you're showing 0psi at idle you may have spun a bearing (thanks Sam). If you show 0 psi when driving STOP DRIVING. Rod bearings are not too difficult to replace and it's a good way to get acquainted with some of the internal workings of your engine.
      034 105 701 -- Rod Bearing
      5. Oil pump -- I have been reliably informed by G60ing that it's unusual for a G60 oil pump to go bad. If it does, they're pretty pricey. There's an 8V oil pump you can use that about $100 cheaper http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=562268.
      037115105 -- G60 Oil Pump
      6. If after all that you still have verified low oil pressure, you're looking at possibly bad main bearings or maybe even worse. I've never had to take it this far so all I can suggest is and

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=780852
      Insure for $2500-$3000 as that is what it costs for a NEW charger
      And let it be said use Fedex (express or ground) or UPS. But do not use USPS as they do not insure the full amount of replacment

      When your charger bites the dust but you need to drive:
      G60 Emergency Bypass Instructions
      originally submitted by Yosh Hakutani to the CCA website
      edited by cbgthor for Vortexers
      Items needed:
      1. 13mm socket + 13mm wrench
      2. phillips and flathead screwdrivers
      3. Jack/Jackstand will make things easier
      4. 59.5 inch serpentine belt. Any local autoparts store will be able to get you one. Just tell them the specific length you need.
      5. Gloves or towel (optional)
      6. duct tape/racer tape, always comes in handy
      7. cone filter (optional, unless you don't mind having the air run through the dead/not spinning charger, through the intercooler, and finally into the intake mani. However, very necessary if your charger spit pieces of metal into the pipes)
      8. Rubber Mallet - may come in handy, either for getting the tensioner off or taking out your frustration about the blown g-lader on the blown g-lader
      >Procedure 1:
      1. remove the nut @ the top of the serpentine belt tensioner. wearing the gloves, push down on the tensioner while rocking it back and forth towards the passenger side. Rubber mallet works too and doesn't hurt it. The tensioner will come off.
      2. remove the airbox
      3. jack up the passenger side and place the jackstand firmly.
      4. >Remove the water-pump/power-steering belt. There are 2 nuts perpendicular and 1 nut that will remove the tension - (all 13mm).
      -OR-
      >Just remove the power steering pump pulley to get the v-belt off. Three allen wrench bolts.
      5. Look at how the serpentine belt routes itself around the crank pulley, ac compressor, alternator, and the supercharger. (diagrams in the Bentley manual if you forget) All we will be doing is to bypass the supercharger. In essence, from the top of the AC compressor, we loop around one of the idler pulleys and go to the alternator.
      It's really pretty self explanatory. It's exactly like it was with the charger, except it doesn't loop up to the charger. Either make note of its path beforehand or use the Bentley manual
      6. Use the 59.5 in serpentine belt and reverse the instructions.

      >Procedure 2 - if your g-lader has blown up and sent bits into the intercooler
      You're going to need some more tools for this.
      1. Remove the rubber elbow between the intake / throttle body and the outlet pipe from the intercooler. does it have metal in it? no? great! Go to #2. yes? you probably got some metal into the engine. bad news. I don't know what you should do at this point - tow the car?
      2. Remove the outlet pipe from the intercooler - to get to the clamp, you may need to remove some of the wheel well housing as well as the driver's side brake cooling duct.
      3. Roll the duct/racer tape around the rubber intake pipe. (on the end that was attached to the outlet pipe from the intercooler) The idea is to build the hose up to where it will match the diameter of the cone filter so that you can attach it directly to the intake, bypassing the clogged intercooler and blowing metal into the engine. Alternatively, I suppose you could attach the airbox directly to the intake...Might be limited on space though.
      "A long term issue is what to do with the PCV valve blow off oil. You could pipe from the valve into an secured oil bottle - just empty it out everyonce in a while."

      With determination and patience, and a trunk of the right tools, this can be done on the side of the road. I used to keep all the stuff I need for this in my trunk, purely out of paranoia.
      I guess this is more for the youngin's like myself, I'm sure all the pros wouldn't have to think twice about it

      Here's a writeup I did on replacing stock boost tubes with Eurosport tubes (90 G60 only). The links are to various pics of the procedure.
      What you will need:
      6mm socket
      8mm socket
      10mm socket
      12mm socket
      various 1/4" and 3/8" drive extensions (the longer the better)
      needle nose pliers
      phillips and flat screwdriver
      shop rags
      This was a fairly easy procedure, a 2 or 3 on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the hardest. Anyone who tinkers around with their car will have no problem doing this. There's not too much you can screw up.
      You can probably do this w/o removing the l/f wheel and brake duct, but it would make life a hell of a lot easier.
      Here's the old tubes
      ... and the new tubes before they go on the car:

      1. Disconnect battery
      2. Remove battery from car
      3. Loosen wheel lugs on l/f wheel
      4. Jack up car and place jack stand underneath
      5. Remove l/f wheel
      6. Remove single phillips and two 10mm bolts inside fender well
      7. Remove one 10mm bolt from front of brake duct (on passenger front side of duct)
      8. Pull duct out
      9. Loosen bottom clamps on both boost tubes (near the intercooler) using either 6mm socket or flat screwdriver
      10. Loosen top clamps on both boost tubes (from top of engine compartment) using either 6mm socket or flat screwdriver
      12. Remove 10mm bolt on midway tab connected to fan shroud on front tube
      13. Remove old front boost tube
      14. Remove grommet from old boost tube and place into new boost tube
      15. Install new boost tube - installation is reverse of removal
      16. Disconnect electrial connector on co_pot on rear boost tube
      17. Remove 10mm bolt on midway tab connected to unibody ledge on rear tube
      18. Remove old rear boost tube
      19. Carefully remove co_pot from old boost tube as to not damage the o-ring. If o-ring
      looks damaged, replace with a new one.
      20. Place co_pot in new tube
      21. Remove grommet from old boost tube and place into new boost tube
      22. Install new rear boost tube - installation is the reverse of removal
      23. Install brake duct - installation is reverse of removal
      24. Install battery and reconnect
      25. Install l/f wheel
      26. Remove jackstand, lower car and torque wheel lugs
      New tubes in the car...
      You're done! Enjoy your new boost tubes!

      Replacement WOT and Idle Switches
      Instead of dropping $75-$150 on a new set of throttle position switches, you can buy these nifty replacements. I have used one on my car for about 9 months w/o a problem.
      the switches can be purchased from mouser electronics
      part number: 653-D2SW-3L1MS >> $4.30
      it can be found on the following catalog page at the bottom of the page.
      http://www.mouser.com/catalog/615/706.pdf
      it is watertight and heat resistant. it comes w/ the little arm (lever) on it which is good for the WOT switch, but I pulled it off of mine since I was doing a Idle switch replacement. it has mounting holes on it that line up to the stock mounting points, I used little screws and nuts to hold it there. be aware that it come with 3 leads...one is common, one it normally closed, one is normally open...so just figure out (it's labeled) which is the normally open one and cut the other lead off. good luck, and IM me if you need help

      I'm not sure how long this update will last, but newbies, or others, please please, do the basic homework on your car before asking the same old questions.
      1. Check the ECU-TB Vacuum line (And all others for damage on ends or in middle).
      2. Do obvious tune up stuff (plugs,wires,knock,o2,blue cts) before...
      3. BUY A FREAKIN A/F GAUGE (seriously, please, by god, buy one), it helps SO much to know you've done the basics and have an air fuel gauge (and boost gauge) to backup any claims of poor running.
      An example might be:
      I'm getting low MPG, i've replaced everything includig the timing belt, but my air fuel gauge is reading rich all the time, my vacuum is at 5hg at idle. I have no power?
      Poor Example:
      My car started bucking, what is wrong?
      Alot of messages end up being the usual protocol of did you try this and that, however, i noticed ALOT of the messages start off with extremely vague questions.
      Do not forget:
      RPM (start,idle,cruise,wot,part throttle,high,low)
      Temps(cold,warm,hot,overheating)
      Distance (immediate,after a short bit, after a long while).
      A/f gauge behaviour (cycling, randomly pegging, lean, rich always)
      Manifold pressure (boost gauge, at idle, cruise, max boost).
      What I haven't changed but should have at this mileage.
      What I have changed recently.
      If i forgot anything,mods,anyone please feel free to add more, but please be VERY Detailed in your questions. It saves alot of typing and guessing. You may be frustrated at the time, go kick your tires, then calm down and replay all the variables in your head when the problem occurrs, it certainly will help us help you get to the problem alot quicker without a dozen guesses.
      If you don't have a boost/a&f gauge, well see above in this faq. Money well worth every cent. And the boost gauge is built into your cluster if you are really hard up, but the a/f isn't.
      Cheers

      Boost curve: Where is boost produced, peaky vs. early or broad. Ranking: Lysholm screw-type SC, vain-style turbo, Roots, classic turbo(?), Centrifugal SC last.
      Lag: How much time between gas pedal application and noticeable boost. THis is significant at low rpms. Ranking: Lysholm screw-type SC, vain-style turbo, Roots, classic turbo(?). Centrifugal SC has very little boost below 3K.
      Here is the Official list , it probably needs to be Updated
      so you know the rules , put up or shut up. if it isn't on the list
      then there full of sh it. so if you wnat on post you dyno and we will add you.
