AGG gearbox code choice.

I use a standard petrol engine (DG) gearbox on spec diameter wheels and tyres, on my ADY powered hightop. Is it wrong to assume that the extra power from the Golf engine could be better managed with a) slightly bigger tyres. Or b) a more suitable gearbox. I know what a) is but what would the answer ...

Re: 1.8T

Is there a post anywhere that shows this manifold modification as it's really the only stumbling block for me.

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...

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.
And has the ability to stop an engine when the choke is off.
