  • Electronic Throttle conversion - Advice?

    Hi All,

    Is it possible to convert the S2 to electronic throttle and get rid of the cable - i know some of my friends have done it their cars, but just wondered what experiences you have had and what parts you have used.
    Any advice would be great. I will be running a MaxxRace ECU that will be compatable

    Thanks!

    Pretty easy with aftermarket engine management, just bin the cable throttle and fit an e-throttle using an adapter. Maxx has a configuration for using a VAG e-throttle but they are not hard to set up. You can also bin the ISV and use the e-throttle for idle air control.

    I have an RS3 throttle on mine with the modular alloy elbow and the option to run the e-bypass valve. It also has a built in IAT/ charge pressure sensor. Mounted to the Wagner inlet using a custom adapter tube I made.

    I think you will struggle for space trying to mount an e-throttle to the OE S2 intake manifold.

      Thanks Alex, sounds intresting yeah i have heard of people use Polo and golf throttle..
      when you get a minute could you post a picture of your setup - i have a Wagner inlet also so this may be an option for me. How is the pedal end configured also?

        I'm running e-throttle 1.8T in my 80 using TDI pedalbox and pedal position sensor from A8 D2 facelift petrol. P&P fitment.

          Yes I have a TDi pedal box with a Seat throttle potentiometer - plug n play. There are some pics of this in my project thread Rich

            RFS performance in Norway makes adapters for the 2.7 biturbo e-throttle housing to adapt on OE s2 intake manifold
