The VR6 Turbo Is ALIVE ~ First Start Success and Failure

The VR6 Turbo Is ALIVE ~ First Start Success and FailureThat is right, the fully rebuilt VR6 turbo GTI aka White Wookie is alive. After a full engine rebuild and adding a turbo it’s finally running. The first starts were not allsuccessful. I had one issue with hooking everything up. It ended up being a very minor issue with the crank position sensor. Luckily it ended up being a simple fix. I am also glad I opted to buy a new crankshaft position sensor during the build. It would have been tragic if I couldn’t start it because of a sensor being bad.
