  1. How will you be controlling the electro-thermostat, and the PWM style Radiator fans?
  2. Good to see you found the issue.
  3. That's the correct CAS for the intake cam on the 06A. There's heaps of documentation on how to set CAM timing online. Below are some photos of correctly timed cams according to factory specs ATDC. I can't exactly remember which way the locating peg on the intake cam wheel sits (apologies), but in my experiences with these motors, it's always best to crack open the valve cover and verify the chain and number of links between (16x) for confirmation.
  4. BBU / BJX are the same... What was the difference in the loom between the BBU and BJX? They share the same setup between the BBU, BJX, BKV & BLZ from NOV 2004 on-wards. The CAM Angle Sensors in a lot of the 06A motors had problems. Have you checked/changed this and can you confirm the CAM sensor wheel is the 4-window instead of the 1 which was in the early 058 motors?
  5. What 3-letter engine code is the motor?
  6. If using the popular big-port AEB head on an 06a motor, you just need to swap over your small-port original CAM sensor and wheel to suit. Likewise for the O2 sensor, I removed the original OEM sensors (wideband upstream, and narrowband downstream as they call it) and installed a standalone WB sensor and controller which feeds back to the ECU. By all of my intensive investigations and schematics, the AWP should work fine with the PNP version.
  7. Plugin will (should) be fine on the AWP. FWD version of the 06a 1.8T I presume?
  8. What year is the car & motor?
  9. Excellent. Nice one. By chance do you have a build thread anywhere? Interested in seeing this one / more details. Mike.
  10. I stand to be corrected, but the base file for the TT was derived off an 06A motor, using an 06A cam sensors/triggers (hall effect) and not the 058 AEB one... Maybe try swapping this over and seeing if your ignition signal returns? Just because you're not using the VVT off the 06A, it doesn't mean you need to use the AEB wheel. Mike.
  11. Cam gear has a mark a TDC, and the valve cover has a notch/mark where the cam gear TDC mark should line up. Crank also has a mark against the front main seal, and the crank gear lines up with this mark accordingly. Even if your cams haven't got a clear mark on them for timing, there are requirements for the chain and chain tensioner at the rear to be at a required interval (16 links inclusive of marked cam caps - there's heaps about timing a 1.8T motor on the web). Waht type of cam gear are you using? If standard, then the keyway lines up according to the way the factory would. Are you using all the same sensors for the 06A motor? This isn't a bitsa by chance (AEB big port head on later 06a block, etc)? I'm building another motor, using the Vipec plugin i88 as offered before the re-branding. Had zero issues with triggers and timing the motor. Need to make sure all your sensors are for the 06A motor, even timing gears etc.
  12. MK4 golf would be ME7.5 OEM ECU. The plugin G4+ Extreme TT-Link would suit... If you have retro-fitted the VVT solenoid then you can make use of it, but in any case the factory used VVT overlap more for emissions than anything else. I've made a Vi-Pec i88 plugin work on an 06A B6 A4 without great difficulty. I'm sure the Link G4+ Extreme would work on your MK 4 1.8T.
