      Hey, Cee-dub! Thanks for chiming in. It's actually funny that you should respond now, because I actually got around to pulling the cat/pipe yesterday. Well, first off, the rear O2 was essentially...

      Oh yeah....I forgot to mention...

      From what I've read, the car will run with the auto ecu, as I guess you have seen, but I don't think it will ever really be right. I read a good deal about...

      I did the same swap on an 01'. I don't know all of the super specific details on what absolutely will or will not work, but I'll tell you what I did. Keep in mind that there are possibly...

      Well, so many suggestions....



      I pulled the cat assembly off today and the cat was completely hollow...someone gutted it years ago. No wonder I couldn't get that code to go away. Sigh...

      Time for a new cat...

      I've finally decided to give in and pull the exhaust on the 2.0 azg wagon. I haven't been able to cure the P0420 code, and while pulling the post cat O2 sensor, the threads essentially ate...

      Don't worry about it. When you finish what you're doing, just trim it back to a sensible spot and splice it with some vacuum hose that fits.

      I looked back at your earlier pics and saw that you didn't always have that much slack in the chain between the sprockets initially, so I guess valve spring pressure rotated the back cam once the...

      If I remember correctly, the 12v tensioner mounts through the timing cover, but yes, it pushes against the guide you mentioned above. I haven't purchased one of them new, but you may have to prime...

      From what I can tell, the chain guides look ok, but the black one in front should sort of extend down into the lower cover area a little and slide over the shoulder of a bolt down in there.(if I'm...

      Ok, that makes sense. I picked up some MAF cleaner a couple of days ago, but just ran out of time. I'll try to clean it after work this afternoon. Thanks for the suggestion!

      A question about fuel trim 2.0 AZG

      While trying to correct a P0420 cel on my 01' 2.0, I found an exhaust leak after the cat, next to the downstream O2. I got it 'patched' for now, but someone botched the exhaust pipe and cut it very...

      This would be ideal, but my only concern is whether this would make me unable to pass emissions. For that price though, I may just get it anyway.
    15. Mk4 AZG P0420 & elevated long term fuel trim...HELP!

      Greetings to all! I have an 01' Jetta wagon with an AZG 2.0. The car has 135,000 miles on it. I bought it for $300 and pulled the sick 01m out and put an 02j in. After getting the swap completed,...

      Interesting conditions you have. While I don't know anything about the BBW engine, I am experiencing something very similar with my AWP 1.8t in my 03' Jetta. I have determined a couple of things,...

      Good info! I think I probably have the same support bar, but have only used it on Jettas. I would have probably taken my chances with a 2x4 on my jack under the edge of the oil pan, but only...

      I actually went with ECS. They had a 'stage 1' kit for the 2.0. I had a lightweight G60 flywheel with all of the clutch components. The flywheel is 14lbs in this kit. It has been great so far...

      I think the normal sai 'run' signal fires after about 20 seconds on a cold start. This car definitely waits longer although it does tell the sai to run. I think I'll time it to see how long it is...
