Re: 20v swap with stand alone engine managment into mk3?? (2035cc16v)


SDS is perfect if you're going to upgrade turbo's etc, you can tweek those things at will. I would have one but it's just too much for my wallet.

Re: 20v swap with stand alone engine managment into mk3?? (1.8T A2)

heres the deal...with 20v and standalone. Your going to need to mount a cable controlled throttle body to run any engine management correctly (probably would want to fabricate a custom intake manfold at the same time to bolt up the throttle body and larger injectors >550cc) Thats the hardest chore of the whole 1.8t ordeal. As far as choosing certain engine managements, id look into either Haltech, Electromotive Tec2/3, or the SDS.
Wiring shouldnt be too bad. Im pretty certain that the 1.8t would have the 60-2 crank trigger wheel that is used in Motronic Engine managements. Most standalone engine managements readily interface with this type of crank trigger.
It shouldnt be any harder of a job than to wire up the stock engine management.

That's why you get the Early 99 Audi A4 1.8T engine, it already has the throttle body, my car does as well. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

LIke I said, call Matrix, they've got it all figured out...I even think they have a wiring schematics and all... They have the Tec II Complete with all sensors for 4 and 6 cylinder cars.
It's just that Money is the issue.... $2,250.00 for the complete Tec II system.
If I had the cash I'd do it.
