I have tryed to understand your problem but could'nt.
Try to explain again please!

Thanks for the answer about your living place!
Norway is a very long country, from Kristiansand to Kirkeness is a lot of km's.
I have been up to Narvik one time, don't think i"ll do that again.

The chance I ever will be near Oslo is a lot bigger. If so I'll let you know.
I am using a different TB (with TPS). Originally the holder for the TB wire is on the adapter from rectangular to round - as pictured above. I dont use this.
I need to make a bracket for this TB wire holder (Black one on adapter picture) As you see in the TB wire picture where I intend to place it, it will get a almost 180 degree.
Is this a problem ? Will the wire be worn/not operate as it should by this ? Hopefully im overthinking this.

Yes, do let me know if you are around !

Yeah,now I understand what you mean. My problem was the word wire, you meant what I should call the throttle cable.

I think your solution will work out but I think if you can get a longer cable it should be better because of a larger curve.

Thanks to you both !
Then I will source a VR6 throttlecable and use the stock one up untill I get it.
Not much left now before firing:) !

I remember the scirocco 2 16V had the throttle body at about the same place as it's in your car now!
You have also the scirocco 2 16V throttle body I think?
If so this cable should be perfect.

Not really sure. The guy I bought it from could not remember the car he picked it out from, just that he intented to use it in his own G60T project, BUT. I do belive this TB is from a newer car, the TB had a very big bracket on it that
I cannot imagine that old car would have. There are some kind of "partnumber" on the TB, but VW could not find it..
That Scirocco is almost non-exicting in Norway, so would be easier to find VR6, but maybe I order on WWW. Time will show.

Today I got the MS connected ! It works. And all the gauges as well.
Then I was going to check if I had oil pressure/oil to turbo.

Did;
Disconnected the fuel pump
Disconnected the coil
Tried, nothing.
Disconnected the spark plugs (So it would turn more easily)
Tried, nothing.
Disconnected the VDO thing on the oil bracket over the oil filter.
No splashing, only suction.
Tried several times just to be sure just in case it would take some time for the oil to get there, but after several attempts
our conculsion is that the oil pump is not working. This was brand new during last build, have about 500-600km on it.
What to check for when I open up the pan ?
Any other suggestions ?

Take of the oil filter! There could be some air in the pipe to the pump wich can't esscape! I've had this several times.
Remove the filter and start till oil comes out of the housing.
Good luck: Stef.

One thing to hate about the Eurosport stressbar !


New solution for the oil feed to turbo and sensor. Placed a hose in between the head and sensor so the fitting would get rid of the "stress" of the weight of the sensor.


And then "finally" oil pressure.


Even got the air ducts to the brakes installed


Is it correct that the excite wire on the alternator is going to ground ?


Replaced the warning on oilbracket with the temp.sensor so I would not loose this. So warning contact is now from the VDO thing.


Sometimes it's easy and simple.
An oilpump wil not be damaged very often and suddenly.

How is the engine running?
Tried to fire it for the first time today. Will not start, close tho. Need to put in some basic settings in the MS.
Will seek help for this. I have no clue about it nor the motivation to learn.
Video of trying to fire it. In the start of the video I say "If anyone wounders if the bosch 044 fuelpump is loud. It is"

Edit: Sound issues on the video I guess....

The exciter wire has its own terminal on the alternator - D+. It’s a spade connector next to the B+ stud that the cable goes on. The battery light on the dash will never go out if you leave it there.

Hmm, okey! Have to take a closer look then. Thank you.

The blue wire should go to the central electrical/fuse box. It enters the box at position 1 in the A2 connector. It leaves the box at position 12 in the U2 connector and goes to the cockpit > alternator warning light.

You are a bit like me I guess. I love to work on the engines hardware and make nice custom solutions.
Working on the wiring loom is also my business but when it comes to electronic I quit.
I shall never do any tuning/ajust at the electronics, that is something for specialists, not for me.
I never had the motivation to learn how the motor management program should be made.

No, the exciter wire cannot be grounded because the alternator is already grounded, doing so will create a ground-loop with the diode. That wire needs a load, created by the dash bulb, to energize the winding field.

You have a newer alternator installed, so the exciter wire is incorporated into a harness connector, as opposed to the single found on the OE G60 alt.

I know but thanks anyhow! I answered Oekern about his question. You can read my answer, it is standing beneath his question.

This. I could not remember to see any spade terminal on this newer alternator.
So I plug the exciter wire to the 2 pin connector. Does it matter witch one ?

I was thinking for the alternator side and not in the fusebox:)
Yes, electronics is nothing for me. Even the small amount of wiring I´ve done (Fuel pump, gauges, seats , relays and stuff) gives me hedacke.

I understand.
Wiring is electricity, electronics is different stuff i.m.o.!

Not much happened lately - I finally have some vacation so been doing other stuff like traveling and hunting! Soo nice doing something different for a change.
BUT, that being said;
New thottle cable. Bought it from MK1 Engineering. Very good quality and quite a bit longer;






The holder I made is not pretty and a bit rubish, but it seems to do the job for now;



Co pot bung welded in;


Bought clear lenses to protect the headlights;



And this is pretty much how the engine bay ended up;


The car is now delivered to the ECU guru. M a y b e things will be happening next week.
