So after i got it started and running, i noticed something wasn’t quite right. It ran decent but sounded like a Subaru. Got to troubleshooting and found out that i had swapped injector #1/2 wiring at the bulkhead connector. They were both firing, just at the wrong times. Swapped pins and runs much better now.

Had a small coolant leak at one of the turbo supply lines but that is fixed, and there is a tiny amount of oil seepage from the engine girdle plate. I ALMOST gasketed it when i pulled the oil pan to seal it but thought it would be fine. Engine will need to come out to seal it back up, but it’s such a small leak I’m going to try and put some miles on it to work out the other kinks before i pull it again

Just had a different flavor of the same issue putting an 02M into my MK2 TT. I was able to run the stock driver axle, but the flange at the angle drive was a good 30mm inboard of the 02E that I pulled out. I ended up disassembling an inner CV and double stacked them as a spacer until Marty at Raxles got me sorted :ROFLMAO:

Awesome man. I left here over 4 years ago, I think you had just started the motor build...and now it's finally running. Lol. Glad you're still here.

Any new updates? Did you manage to get the tt driveshafts you ordered from the UK?
Have the driveshafts and it runs/drives, but its in some sort of limp mode. At 100% throttle on the pedal, throttle body only opens max 30% when the engine is running. I can re-adapt it and it will go to 100% with the engine off, but it goes back to limp mode once its running again. Cheched the TB and wiring, all good there. Due to this I have no boost.
