Golf Mk2 Rust bucket with 1.8T 20V engine swap

Post by nyl »

Hey,

My name is Laurentiu and i'm from Romania, I'm a Systems Engineer that works as telecomunications engineer :p

I want to show you my test mule

Golf Mk2 originally 1.8 8v Monojetronic soon to start swapping in the 1.8T engine :)

Will add DB25 or DB37 connectors so i can test multiple ECUS and have cheap plug n play solution for swaping ecu's. The car will run MRE as main ECU and another board under development that I will not mention here (maybe will try Proteus also)

I would like to suggest using a real harness connector then make an adapter for db15 db37. Those db connectors have problems relative to automotive applications.

Yep, those DB37 connectors do not like being in an auto environment for too long,
Now keeping MRE and Proteus in stock in the UK, PM or slack for details.
