    2000 1.8t 5 speed Okay I'm not sure exactly why but after I swapped to an AWM ecu I can no longer connect to the ecu. I've tried with the motoza software, VAGcom and a generic obd2 reader. I had no issues before the ecu conversion so I'm guessing the problem lies somewhere in there but I'm not...
