Its a good feeling! The first time she fired up it was idling at WOT, then my next adjustment was a little too much lol. I think somewhere in the excitement i backed the fuel screw out a full turn and my idle looks threaded in quite a bit more than it used to be. Thats what makes me believe I'm still off a notch but idk, deff dont want rpm's hanging too long. And my thumbs are sore :-[

I'm tempted to do the governor mod soon. I dont wanna blow it up inwas reading i should rig up some water injection?
Oh its a mk2 with a na 1.9/1.6 head.
It already seems choked over 4500 im sure its not a good breather anyways but i figure it should help.
Should i throw an egt in?


Oh btw i did adjust the max fuel, like this : turned the idle screw all the way down and got as much slack in the pedal as i could. Then after pulling the lock collar off i started it and "adjusted" the idle with the fuel. I dunno it went a few turns i figure thats good for now :) enjoy the soot!

That is a relation on how you have your external settings set up. I once had my 1.6 NA setup with a fully shimmed governor and I could get in to fifth gear without ever touching the accelerator.

Literally, could idle through every gear and not stall it out. So no the gov mod is not causing this.

Lets discuss this more. I have this same problem. After GOV mod it seems like I lack torque when taking off in first gear. I doubt fuel needs to be turned up. It smokes black at full throttle. And always spews a little haze.

You likely have everything all put back together weird. It has been a while since I have done any and tuned them as well.. but I think I recall some that you could just put the shims in the governor and put it back to the settings it ran at prior to taking it apart..

HOWEVER, I have had some that needed a from the start tune. Probably because where there were set before was right on the brim of not being setup properly.

So... No suggestions? As far as which particular adjustment would cause this?

i think its time for an update..

"Gov Mod 2013 Edition"

Would it be better maybe to do a how to thread, then a discussion thread on the how to thread. That way people get the good info right away with no bs. Not that i dont mind the bs, and the how to is right at the beginning, just an idea..... Oh and updated techniques only could be added to the how to thread ? Am i makin sense?

It deff needs clearing up, like a locked how-to thread, then a discussion thread separate.

I am in the midst, well I have the plan to re-write it with my own pictures taken and what not..

I am also going to be re-doing the M-TDI thread, as it is severely dated with A LOT of misleading info.

Tooo busy with life :( lol.

Ps. If anyone wants to take the time out of their day to fix it as they see fit and then send it to me to be published... I wouldn't stop you haha.

Question, if your already pushing the EGT limits is there any reason to do this mod?

You are reaching EGT limits with a bone stock pump? I don't see how that is possible?

EDIT..

Is that in the Vanagon you have posted? Different story.. Yes I would still do it, you can use less fuel to rev higher and make the engine much more happy about it.

Yes, its the Vanagon and I already have to back off on tall, long hills as the temps start climbing 1250-1300.

How does it use less fuel to rev higher? Even if I turn down the max fuel screw I thought the mod allows more fuel at the higher revs and wont more fuel make it hotter?

You are lugging it and over fueling right now, guarantee it. More revs, with matching fuel will lower EGT's

What if I adjust the max RPM limit screw to allow for higher RPMs? Would that solve the lugging aspect?

If I increase the upper RPM range how will the gov. mod help with over fueling?
