Description:

1989 Volkswagen Golf MK2 1989 VW GTi 16V Turbo

1989 VW Golf GTI 16V TURBO
It starts runs and drives like it should. It needs a tune adjustment - it will hesitate / buck / Cut off fuel.
I did NOT build this - It was created in Kansas City - he owned it since 2000 as a stock GTI 16v.
Previous owner did the turbo upgrade and paint ( paint is O, not GREAT - lots of RUNS )
Middle of April 2016 - just dropped $630 at local shop.
Sorting an oil leak ( weld bungs on turbo / oil pan )
Brand new radiator - installed. ( April 2016 )
Odometer shows 147, 000 miles
Runs / drives - but cuts out / needs a better tune / stand alone. I have driven it an hour or so on highway - and around town - the warmer it gets ( after driving it longer ) the more hesitation / bucking it does.
I couldn't get the Sony head unit to turn on - not sure why - haven't had time to figure it out. Could be user error as i am Alpine Fan.
When driving this car as it is - the boost gauge reads about 6-7 lbs then it stops- boy does it SCOOT though.. my few passengers so far have had smiles on their faces.
Under load - it will hesitate - like fuel pump cut off ? Previous owner was going to install a stand alone fuel management system like MegaSquirt but never did.
When at the local shop - he noticed the fuel accumulator / fuel filter housing had a leak. This could be cause of the hesitation? Its not a major lea, doesn't mark its spot in driveway or anything.
The driver seat is a passenger seat - the recline feature is on the inside instead of the outside ( the seats are SO COMFY )
The passenger front seat does not have a seat belt receiver attached to the seat
The Interior is SO CLEAN -Dash / door panels are PERFECT - clean carpet - Newer headliner.
