Re: 1.8t holding back - HELP with vagcom logs

Re: 1.8t holding back - HELP with vagcom logs

been having a think :-?

even though I cant diagnose fuel pressure via vcds, would the car throw fault codes if it was being starved of fuel, would I get eg: bank 1 too lean etc etc?? is there another way to diagnose lack of fuel, running to lean when WOT?

thanks

I've had arch work done, they've been pulled loads, and get 2 set of -1 camber shims.

It's just a costly mistake if they are 2 wide as there costing over £1k
