Hello everyone! I'm having some mysterious issues with my car after the swap. I swapped everything, it has the GTI fuel pump, but still has a rough idle when cold, and poor perfomance even when the engine is at it's operation temp, and it cranks for 3-4, even 5 secs before it starts the engine.It struggles at higher rpms, and has a top speed of 150 km/h instead of 200 km/h. I replaced almost every sensor I could, it's definitely not the lambda sensor, or the crankshadt pos. sensor. Even replaced the coolant temp sensor. I noticed that I have a grey 167 fuel pump relay with 4 legs instead of a black 410 with 8 legs. The guy who made the wiring, didn't notice the different relay. Can this be the cause of my problem? Or could the VVT actuator failure cause this? Thanks for the help!
Hello hello, thought I'd introduce myself real quick and dive right into my project and a question about it I have. My name is Manuel, I'm originally from Germany and moved to California earlier this year. It would've broken my hear to leave my 1982 mk2 Derby behind after having fully restored it in college. So I decided, screw that, and put it on a ship. I had a bit of a Frankenstein engine made of bits and pieces I had flying around and it turns out the bottom end I used wasn't as solid as I would've liked. So I blew it up. On to bigger and better things, I joined this forum and bought heartagram's gti engine that he is busily prepping for shipping :) It's a 1.6 16V out of a 2000 6n2 gti, so that would make it either an AVY or ARC engine code. I'm going to run the following setup: - Bike carbs (bought a kit from DanST a few months back and couldn't be happier. Not a big fan of injection) - Megajolt Lite Jr. for the ignition - VVT to tune the variable intake cam timing My question to you fine gearheads is this: Does anyone have the stock (or slightly modded) timing maps for this engine? I would love to have a baseline that I can tweak to my specific application. Starting from scratch is...tricky to say the least. I don't even know where this engine sparks at idle - I'm guessing 5 Degrees BTDC? And also - and this is a shot in the dark - does anyone have the Map files for the variable valve timing as well? I could load a stock miata file and see how it goes. I'll keep you guys posted on the progress of the engine swap :) Thanks Manuel
