SICK! Good job dude, glad to hear that you found the issue. Has the old wiring harness been spliced or hacked at any points? What condition was it in?

Thanks! The old wiring was just all separated since I had to remove the the MK3 lighting harness and stuff from it. So it started out a little messy right from the get go. Some of the grounds on the injector harness were a little frayed so even that could've caused the issue. Also it seems like the Passat main engine harness is wrapped individually from everything else so it was just easier to use that one.

Thanks I can't wait to drive it!

So now I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is the exhaust is on the car, and it actually sounds like a normal car again :lol: The bad news is when the car was on the alignment rack, they found out that the driver's side steering knuckle was somehow casted or manufactured differently, and it's 1/2 an inch longer on the coilover mounting arm, pushing the top of the wheel out and causing excessive positive camber. At this point I'm now on the hunt for a MK3 2.0 4x100 steering knuckle, the type with a separate caliper carrier. If anyone has one or knows of one, please text me ASAP @ 403-607-3499. If I don't find one by tomorrow morning, I'll hit PnP for one.

So managed to grab a knuckle from PnP, got it to the shop and got it aligned. Exhaust and alignment is done but I wasn't able to make it to pick it up Friday. Looks like I gotta wait the whole weekend to pick it up Monday but at least it's running and roadworthy now! See y'all at the next meet.

With a VR, a sound clip is paramount:
