Re: ADY hesitance and power loss.

I really haven't noticed any appreciable difference in power from the wbx 2.1 (on a carb) and this ADY. Im sure a dynograph would prove you right though. The only notable difference is in where on the rpm scale you get the full grin. The DJ delivered it in the lower half, whereas the ADY really pick...

Re: ADY hesitance and power loss.

Great news Kevin.  I have also experienced throttle body failure.  I now carry a spare one.  I love to see some photos of the exhaust set up, I really need to find a quieter solution.  I used a German intermediate exhaust into WBX single entry silencer. Company is https://www.auspuffhannover.com I ...

Re: ADY hesitance and power loss.

Just to finish this. I had the engine on the VCDS and it couldn't talk to the throttle body. Clearly there was an issue with the connection. So I changed the entire throttle body for another from a 16v The VCDS recognised it. Switched on and it set itself. Now the tickover is steady, acceleration sm...

Re: Golf Mk4

Any AGG head improvement would be identical on an ADY I assume?

Re: Syncro engine swap - DJ to AGG

I'm three weeks into my DJ to ADY swap.
I fitted a catalyser to mine by choice.

Only issue so far is a niggly power loss going through 2200-2800 if I floor it.
Im working on that.

Re: 1.9 DG Engine cuts out when warm

So have all the vacuum components been checked for any compramise?

A weak mixture comes in many guises.

Re: Automatic choke issue

The choke is opened and closed with a bimetalic spring inside the choke housing.

The choke is adjustable once set up as per the haynes.

To see if the choke is connected to the spring or if the spring has broken the housing must be removed

Re: Semi traction wet lead acid batteries?

I use my van all year round without hook up. It's my hotel room. After many years of trial and error I have finally settled on the perfect combination. I had a Webasto HL32 petrol heater that I liked on in the evening and all night. It drew 2.6A starting, while fast heating at 3.2kw, then when desir...
