Hey guys just dropped a new 97 motor in my 96 TSI. on the driver side of my intake to the left of a ground wire their is this half inch long gold nipple? What's it for and what plugs onto it, where do i find what plugs into it: I'm stumped . I don't have pictures but I'm sure someone will know what I'm talking about.
No pics yet. But I know u guys know what I'm talking about. When your looking at your Intake on the driver side their is a ground wire. Right beside I have a nipple for a small line from somewhere. What is it
Im not a mind reader first of all, and second I haven't had a ground wire or even SEEN a stock engine bay in years. To the best of my knowledge the only nipple that should even been on the driverside is for the FPR. Which I said above.
Yes sorry, I shouldn't assume things. I believe your correct. But I think the line goes from the intake nipple to the Fuel Pressure Solenoid which then goes from the Solenoid to the Regulator. I checked the pictures on my phone and looks like the line for the intake was tucked down by my firewall and the regulator was already on. Also, my fuel return line isn't hooked up. I've searched the forums but their has not been any discussion on where the fuel return line comes from? Is it a line coming out of my firewall or somewhere else like under the car? Sorry for all the questions guys but I am just finishing the job my brother actually pulled it out and dropped it in. I'm doing the rest. Also, SHOTT17 you have been a good help thus far. thank you.
So is my fuel return line coming off the fuel rail or is it coming from firewall? Sorry got confused there :S. So I bought some 17's for my car so I'm going to shop to install them tomorrow. I'll let you guys now if I figure everything out ok. Thanks!
