Show off your Euro from the EU

Following on from VAG 20vT track cars, I can share a few other examples. This time a few owned by me. Golf 2 8V GTI - JENVEE. JENVEE is a Golf 2 that was purchased to replace another MK2 that was shunted up the rear. https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/967067_10151403362190496_478...

Re: Forged Rods for 1.8T...Scat or Pauter?

For 20vT engines we in Europe use Integrated Engineering rifle drilled rods. They are the best value rods on the market.

Uprated rods are only required if you are pushing the engine over 300lbft or want to run revs in excess of 7200rpm.

Re: A/F gauge fluctuating wrong readings

You should not depend on a binary sensor to carry out fuel mixture tuning unless the interface can interpret sensor voltage to lambda i.e. the slopes/curves from sensor voltage when switching from a rich condition @ 0.8V to 0.45V or from lean at 0.1V to 0.45V into lambda.

Guys, "OBD2" is legislation for US emissions monitoring. All vehicles sold in that market would have std PIDs to work with any generic OBD2 tool over a K line. JDM vehicles may send PIDs via CAN in a similar fashion to EOBD vehicles. In such a case those Actron tools will not work as the 1...

Re: rb20det ecu tuning

Or buy yourself an 8bit emualtor and like Ostrich 2.0, MTP Flash 256K chips/ live edit/ TunerPro and start tuning.

Of course tuning is not just turning up numbers in boxes though...

Re: Knock with Super gas

"Super" gasoline (RON 92) in Trinidad is more prone to combustion knock than "Premium" (RON 95) Heat introduced into the air charge and carbon build up over time would only help to increase the likely hood of knock. Mind you both if those vehicles you have were calibrated for JDM...
