Timing the 2.5 TDI - A few questions.
Having thought I had done a good job on setting up the dynamic timing I began to suspect myself.
Using the TDI graph was driving me mad so I have resorted to the Vag Com section Engine, Measuring Block, Group 0 numbers 2 & 9
At 160 Temp I am getting 60 which is a bit advanced but in range.
Much messing with the pully told me that this was time to stop.
Runs fine but cold starting is 'not perfect' almost goes for a few seconds like its building up and then vroom.
Today I tried the 'other method'
Using Group 004
Ran like a nail and the numbers looked bad.
Does this work for the BDG Motor?
Anyway monitored the timing from cold using Group 0 again and it started at 85 and slowly dropped to 60 as it got to temperature.
My questions..... Is the ECU taking the slack and working overtime for the timing being advanced?
If I get 60 then it looks good...is it?
Or is it normal?
