  3. Vr6 AAA OBD1 or OBD2

    Obd2 does slightly more power than an obd1 , it’s a newer better system that processes things faster . Hope this helps

  7. Hi ShaunZ Going to start from scratch so please dont be offended if this sounds over simplified. The lights are on due to a fault detected. This will be stored in the Electronic Control Unit (ECU). To access this there is a standard called On Board Diagnostics (OBD II as its the second iteration of the standard). There are plenty of ODB II adapters but the one you really want if you are going to have VW group cars (Audi, Skoda etc) is VagCom by Ross Tech Basically you will need to get the car scanned for OBD Errors, specifically ABS and Air Bag, but it will scan everything. ABS Sounds like someone had a go at the Sensors on the ABS and gave up. The sensors are basically Hall effect sensors that produce a signal when passed by a metal object. There is a disc with holes in it that does this for the sensor in the wheel hub area. Trouble is that there is rust, dust, salt and all manner of crud that gets in to these and they will eventually fail. They also tend to rest in place so removing them can be a pain. Think hammer and punch. A scan will tell you wants wrong and go from there. Air Bag Air bags are dangerous. Dont and i mean Dont mess with them with the battery on. They are basically a small explosive charge in a bag to contain the gas that is produced. Its designed to inflate it quickly and have pressure inside the bag for a small period of time as your face and upper body, when restrained by the seatbelt, hits it. They are specialist bits of kit so if it dosnt work then I would recommend getting a qualified mechanic to fix it. That being said the Air Bag light will most likely stay lit until you clear the codes, so again, VagCom is you answer here. Scan Car Save Results Clear codes Scan Car again. Review results. Some codes only return when necessary, some are on until the code is fixed. Ie ABS sensors wont give a signal when stationary so clear the codes and its going to have to move before it can check unless its shorting out or some other hard fault. Remember these are safety systems so just going in and playing isnt something I would recommend, however there is a vast amount of info on the web on VagCom and VWs in general. Disabling Airbags http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=152807 VagCom https://www.gendan.co.uk/vcds-v2.php Im told that ABS fails safe and therefore you dont have a problem with braking just that it will lock the wheels and you will skid. Although I dont have that from a VW source. Also You Tube is another great source - search Humble Mechanic, etc Plenty of things in there to help out owning your VW. Good Luck and remember to update here so if you get it all fixed and someone else has the same problem then they see how its done. D

  14. Fast forward to today, just got the new wheels and had them fitted. Had to play around a bit with camber and spacers, but im very happy with the fitment. Ispiri Wheels 8.5x18 with 215/35-18 tires. Put the VR6 badge back on and fitted a tow strap on the front. Created a bracket for the airfilter, its was just held on with a ziptie when i bought it.

  18. p.s. bottom one is a modded HGP file, so different approach, others are actual figures from R32T files I did with the owners! p.p.s. You need to do after start and warm up maps etc to get it all tickety boo and run like stock - the references shown on there are from things like Nef Moto calcs etc for reference!
  19. General oem map on a mk5 R32T for example will be like this (10psi not 14), "bag o nails" as we call it before it's mapped as so...; Then sort your fuel mass, can vary depending on mods but as an example;

    hello, I introduce myself, my name is Paco and I'm from Spain, I'm a great lover of vr6 engines, I'm a mechanic and I've always liked this engine for how good it is, how durable they are and the sound they have, I have two vr6 at home, one is the ford galaxy v6 4x4 (system syncro) 174cv guide x mk1 (automatic 4 speed) and a seat alhambra v6 4x4 (haldex system) 204cv stylance mk2 (manual 6-speed), the latter (the seat alhambra) I have attached an engine of a vw golf r32 mk5 250cv, little by little I'm doing things but now the thing is a little stop since I'm restoring the two and not always for both, I'll give you some more photos of cars, greetings
