Hmmm. Sounds like the lift pump in tank isnt working. You can check via vagcom. Canbus wont let you just multimeter it.

Here are measuring blocks at idle that had readings. Can't see anything thats measuring the boost though.

Sticker in the service book or white sticker in the spare wheel

AJM is the 115
ASZ is the 130
ARL is the 150

It says ARL and reg shows up as ARL (PD150) but like I said, those pics from VCDS Lite are showing engine code AJM so I'm fearing its had an engine swap :(

Aslong as turbo and such are cchanted wouldnt matter. Could have had an ecu swap as thats what vcd would pic up.
Perform that test on first start of the day and post up. Then can see if it shows where the problem lies.

What test? Is there any way of finding out (is there any physical differences) which it is? seems very quick for a 115bhp but never driven one so it might be :(

There should be a tag on the engine itself by the cam cover i think

Does it have pipework coming from the top right as you look at it, down the drivers side and then across the front of the engine towards the passenger side?

If so then its the 150 as it has a frount mounted intercooler  :smiley:

See this link for a picture

Yeh it has a front mounted intercooler, its def a 150 from factory, would a 115 not fit the FMIC from a 150? I'm just thinking if it has been swapped and they could of left that in place then maybe they have. IF not, and say it is something like the ECU being swapped, will that give me a 115 map?

Yes it looks like the one in the link sent, what does a AJM look like?
