    all you need is the 4 wires from the main pump to the fusebox plug M, everything else can go. then unplug the old mk2 golf M plug and fit the passat one :)

    sometimes one of the pump wires goes to plug K/11, in this case depin the wire and swap it over to M/6 then you're sorted:

    If you're struggling to get the pin out since the passat loom is going in the bin anyway you can carefully chop the K plug with a sharp knife till you can get the pin out

    for tach adaptor you can run a wire from G1/12 to the negative terminal under the flap on the side of the passat coil, currently g1/12 will run from the ecu. you could fit a tach adaptor same as the 20v guys do, or you can convert back to the 1.6 coil and spark module, details in here:
    https://clubgti.com/forums/index.php?threads/ce1-abf-splicing-of-looms-help.249714/

    those 2 plugs I'm not sure, but you probably dont need to worry about them. usually any fly leads seperate from the main loom are not needed for the engien to run the important stuff goes straight to the fusebox. they may be connections for the passat cluster, alarm, brake pad warning things like that. the one wire you need to find though is the diagnostics connection which is usually a grey/whiute wire with brown plug and this one comes from ECU pin 43

    usually its best to strip the tape off the engine loom anyway as it'll likely need a bit of tweaking to fit the engine bay properly. if you do that you can also chase these unknown wires back to source at the same time. your call :)

    great informations :) i use all passat engine wiring and sort them up . after that i connect all to the fusebox in golf same as was connected in passat . also i use all relays and put them in golf fusebox. ok for diagnostic runing i need to find that cable from ecu and use obd connector with wiring from passat?

    yep, yep, yep and yep. the port will be tapped into the ciggarette lighter wiring in the passat dash harness,. carefully undape and strip it out. snip the live and earth where they're spliced in then you can tap them back into the mk2 ciggy lighter wiring. at the fusebox should be a diagnostics jumper block where the port wires run to.

    if the passat is post-96 then you'll have an immobiliser, follow the reader coil from the ignition lock to the box and pull that out along with all the wiring from it. you'll have a wire from the ecu to the box, and a wire from the box to the diagnostics jumper.

    ok great it is all easier now. ok from what I understand first need to find grey/white cable with brown connector from ecu pin 43 follow that cable and where that cable is need to be connected?
    passat is 1994 no immobiliser .

    ok perfect so you just need to figure out where the diagnostics wire is and join it to the vagcom port wiring once you get that./ its possible the brown 2 pin plug is the diagnostics though usually the wire is grey/white not grey/brown

    you keep the stock drop links but need to change the bush for eibach sutable one, same goes for the inner bushes. you can still get eibach bush kits or source them aftermarket. just have to shop around.

    yes you will need a mk2 digifant airbox, swap the passat AFM over. not sure about that extra sensor though, looks like a g60 co pot? possible the passat management needs it, any part numbers on the side? looks like it just pushes into a hole on the airbox so easy enough to swap it over if need be

    just had a look, seems to be 037906040C which is a CO pot as I thought. So need to switch that over to the MK2 airbox :)

    maybe drivers have low power engines and smaller chance to be crashed :) here in croatia 95% of golf mk2 are diesels. few drivers and few gti-s . very hard to find parts from GTI.
