Supplies

  • (1) 12V Relay, standard 4 post (a pilot driving light relay from any automotive store works well and is usually found for under $5.00)
  • (3) wire taps, (Calterm p/n 69360 found at checker/shucks/kragen)
  • (4) insulated female blade connectors (to attach to relay, get insulated ones so they don't short under aggressive driving)

Directions for wiring up [2002 or newer] factory headlights with fogs in your 2003 GTI

Factory Fog lights lit up on a 2003 model

As you all know by now, as of this writing, new 2003 GTI's in the USA don't come with fog lights. I acquired some used headlamps and this how-to will mostly discuss the wiring (There is no factory wire in the harness for the fogs.

We won the racerswanted.com givaway!!! So we got more on the car, and even more is on the way!

  • GIAC Chip for the new 03 manual LP ECU X2 ;)
  • H&R PCS Coilovers (fully adjustable dampning, more aggressive spring rate than PSS9's)
  • ATP 3" Downpipe with high flow cat
  • Eurosport cat back stainless steel exhaust
  • Eurosport Cool-Flo Race Intake
  • Bonrath hardened upper strut bushings
  • H&R Front Sway Bar
  • Audi TT 12.3" Front Brake Conversion
  • Ferodo Brake Pads
  • Forge Diverter Valve
  • Samco Intercooler Hoses
  • Audi TT Brushed Aluminum Pedals, including Dead Pedal
  • Blitz Dual Turbo Timer, Black
  • TurboXS HPMBC <-- this is OFF because of part throttle boost issues and ecu pulling timing

How ECU Long Coding Works

Let's review how long coding works. We'll do the long complicated math first. There have been a lot of questions as to how to calculate your long coding without the vag-com "long coding helper".

***NOTE***: I've fubared these codes so they are completely FALSE. Some of you are copying codes and ignoring the warnings. These codes posted are 100% FALSE, do not use them! DONOTJUSTCOPYTHISUSETHELONGCODINGHELPER - Yes, use the Long Coding helper in vag-com. You MUST start with your original coding to derive your new code. If you copy a code, bad things can happen, mmmmkay?

Pumpe Düse Engine

134 hp 2.0L Turbodiesel Pumpe Düse (unit-injector). The fuel injectors are electronically controlled, and are located inside each combustion chamber. Each one creates very high pressure (29k lbs per square inch) to atomize and more precisely meter fuel entering the chamber. The plus side to this technology is more power and a diesel engine that is much quieter.

* Displacement: 1968cc (2.0 liter)
* Compression ratio: 18.5:1
* Max torque: 247 lbs-ft @ 1900 rpm
* Max power: 134 hp @ 4000 rpm
* Engine management: Bosch EDC 16

The Passat Diesel is rated at 27/38 mpg city/highway. Driving in mixed city and rush hour traffic with frequent WOT runs, it's hard for me to not get anything below 30 mpg.

2005 Passat Variant Diesel

We bought a 2005 Passat Variant TDi on 6/24/2005. Couldn't wait for the months it would take for a MKV Jetta TDi, and the new B6 Passat won't have an initial TDi option, or a Variant (Wagon) version.

diesel passat wagon variant

So what will a stock 134hp and 247 lbs-ft be able to do? Diesel even? Well, with a 100% stock engine, we put down 116hp to the wheels on a dynojet. Not bad for a few free runs. Now we have to get the rpm pickup so we can get the torque readings.
