  1. Blue smoke

    It's usually some high mileage hardware wear and tear stuff like you've mentioned - but did you have it remapped after upgrading the cams? I'd keep an eye on all the oil aspects on older vehicles, had dodgy oil pickups/blockages etc destroy engines, even forged ones! Did you do anything with the bottom end?
  2. P1151 code and white smoke on idle

    Dodgy 02 read due to the leak by the sound of it - need to find and fix and code "should" go away. http://www.oemepc.com/vw/parts_lst/markt/RDW/modell/GOLF/year/2002/hg/1/catalog/vw/drive_standart/266/lang/e
  3. Performance filter or standard airbox???

    You can get a few hp with better airflow easily enough, ideally you want to tweak the tune any time you change either air or fuel although there are some good adaptations in the ecu's
  4. Performance filter or standard airbox???

    More air would mean it running leaner, could be a leak somewhere or adaptions going wild over-compensating - older mafs can hate turbulent air - need straight piping sometimes at maf.
  5. Is there anybody out there?

    1988 I started out in VAG tuning, internet wasn't even invented back then! 2008 was when I signed up here on a last profile, 2011 this one, there were a few years of lurking before then! What got me into VR's was a black mk2 12v on the cover of either PVW or Golf+ - was before the 1.8T came out so that long ago! Amazing to see how far the aftermarket scene has come and the level of tech info available compared to the 90's! The old skool stuff like mk1-3 are getting a bit thin on the ground now like you say, you couldn't give that stuff away back in the day!
  6. list of cars that use the vr6 engine

    Holy thread resurrection Batman! Most of the ecu codes of the VAG 24v's just to add to this;
  7. There's a lot less interaction on the forums nowadays, not just this one - is everyone just facetubin' it nowadays or does that mean the mods have covered all technical Q's now? Just wondering what's changed in recent years?
  8. Smoke after engine rebuild

    What routine are you following for bedding in? Apart from that the usual is to check the working of parts added for running, wiring etc, basically all sensors, lines and so on.
  9. T4

    No, all are welcome, just generally kept to VR related subjects. I'm sure lot's of people can help with anything, lot's of technical Q's already covered in many threads over the years if you have a search 1st.
  10. V6 4MO 24V BDE Tuning

    Not sure if it was the BDF from the thread link above but just dug out some locations for the US lot; Check the cw but looks okay; Main locations for the BBSAWE maps; Your rpm limits will generally show up as B0 68, of which there can be loads, look at the spacing between them to narrow it down in your hex editor or most should show up in these locations as there's not a massive amount of data stacking changes twin vvt to twin vvt files;
  11. V6 4MO 24V BDE Tuning

    p.s. This includes BDF, major offsets with the early single VVT stuff like AUE which can be a pain to define comparatively and I lost the early ones I did on dodgy hard-drive and haven't done much since, but if I have time I'll have a quick look if you put a link to your oem file for me
  12. V6 4MO 24V BDE Tuning

    I did this quickly some time ago off an R32 file, I think it should be pretty much spot on but I'm reversing at the mo so time will tell. Seems to match up with mininuts file post but if not, pipe up and I'll try and dig out any address changes for you! Based on this post to read up on, can elaborate as required as/when needed if your addresses are off etc; http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=7174.0title= Or I've got this full read to work off to do a better xdf/FI tuning etc if you want to get the file and are looking at long term?; http://nefariousmotorsports.com/forum/index.php?topic=17018.0title=
  13. What does all those turbo numbers mean?

    Some info in here at a quick look! http://www.volkspage.net/technik/ssp/ssp/SSP_127.PDF
  14. What does all those turbo numbers mean?

    Just quick links, not sure what data's available but a push in the right direction I hope; http://www.vaglinks.com/vaglinks_com/Docs/SSP/VWUSA.COM_SSP_871003_Wiring_Harness_Repair.pdf http://www.volkspage.net/technik/ssp/index2_eng.php
