    I have the above fitted and would like some advice , because there is no place for the oil sensor on this kit it keeps the engine management light on , quite soft realy as I should have been designed with this in mind , I have heard you can have the oil sensor mapped out of the ecu? Or could I solder something between the wires like you do on the wiring for sai removal , any ideas or help would be appreciated.
    cheers stuart

    Its the sump from a 2ltr beetle... tbh its not that shallow and personally can't see the point... if you are smashing sumps then your car is too low... better off welding a couple of plates to the bottom like the baffled sumps have..

    This sump has been discussed before...

    It came fitted to the car tuffty , all I know is it was the kit from awsome gti judging by the receipt , It looks pretty flat to me but never seeing an original it's not my place to say , we have some pretty aggressive speed bumps by us aswell! It's realy just the sensor is like some idea what to do with . I can't see the point I'mn buying another sump and then a riser kit for the engine but maybe a last resort.
