Not sure what the problem is video shows it all will run with throttle on, brake causes some loss of power, has trouble shifting while driving

  1. Ran codes only code is catalytic converter and I pulled that off which got it to actually start and sometimes idle

omg that poor 1.8t. I have no idea how one gets that sound from one of these engines.

Agreed on the codes of course. I'm pretty sure replacing all the vac hoses and checking for leaks wouldn't do you any harm. With that vid though I imagine there may be several points of failure here.

Note; he pulled that catalytic converter; so, essentially starting the engine with exhaust manifold intact and NO muffler. Thus that straight thru pipe nasty sound! ;)

Hopefully, he will update us with any updates and progress he has made?
