Turbo MK3 gti having issues

Post by turbovr6 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 7:27 pm

Hey guys I'm new around here, but I have a turbo vr6 that started acting up on me. Once it hits boost if you let go off the gas pedal it boggs. Once you come to a stop it idles rough and at times dies if you don't give it a bit of gas. I have a feeling it is either the wiring to the aftermarket fuel pump or the actual fuel pump because it sounds like it shuts off after you hit boost. Just wondering if anyone does sidework and would be willing to help me out with this problem. Any help would be greatly apprecieted thanks.

Is your diverter valve recirculated or vented?

If its a c2 tune then that answers all your questions. They have a newer tune out of the vrt.
