just bought another Ł300 project car, 97 1.8t mechanically it seems ok (needs a new throttle body, eratic idle and wont respond with vagcom) cosmetically it looks like a shed, bought as a non starter but just needed a new transponder and a fuse for the ecu
anyway its got a baileys atmospheric dump valve fitted between the ic and throttle body guessing the original valve is blocked off but not checked yet, should i leave it? is it safe? sounds pretty cool leaves no doubt its a turbo but not everyones taste i know
also anyway to check if its been chipped? cant drive it on the road yet but it has the dump valve, k+n panel, boost gauge and performance exhaust but no idea if its been chipped, would vagcom tell me?
