Problem Solved


I appreciate everyones input. Through some great advice to check my TTS first I decided to see if that was even firing the the CSV by grounding the red wire to fire the injector no matter how cold/warm the car was. The car had been sitting for almost a week and it fired right up on the first turn of the starter.

I had my old TTS (never knew how to check it) and my buddy Chris (356-930) explained to me that it should read about mid to upper 30's on the ohm meter. I checked it and it read 48.. so we were in business.

Within 30 minutes I removed the IC, boost pipe and barely was able to get the 19mm wrench in there but I got her off. Put the old on and away I go.. PROBLEM SOLVED!!!

I checked the other TTS with an ohm meter and it didn't even register (the one that has been in the car for 7 months)... so it was bad for sure.

I'm very happy to say I didn't have to check the WUR pressure as the car runs great in any other scenario.. Here is a picture of the defective unit.

Thanks for all of the ideas and I hope this can help people in the future with their issues.
