      Battery negative is electrically the best, but vw uses a large engine ground so usually that is fine.

      It was good for the time but requires a specific magnet setup on the pulley to work. These days there are many better options that support the crank and cam sensors already there.

      Usually when the slave goes it leaks. When a master goes the fluid just goes back into the chamber with the reservior/fluid feed. This can be diagnosed using a pressure gauge in the line.

      I haven't seen any real good "tuners" here for stock ecm tbh. Most are just copy paste with a few tweaks other than UM but a custom file is hard to get done.

      All the flash tuners are garbage imo. Every car has giant jumps on standalone, even if the stock ecu seems to run well.

      I have done low 500s on a few with simple builds, stock engines, spacer, studs and standalone on 93 octane. You can make more on higher octane or e85 and the bottom will hold with good tuning into...

      Agreed with above, also watch exhaust at first start and on decel for smoke. If you get it then, likely valve seals with over 150k is common.

      It starts sticking to the sealing surface and you get leakage. You can catch it in a leakdown test.

      For some reason I don't think the 12v bracket bolts up or the pulley offset is wrong. Its something just too long ago to recall.
