I think the reason is that the golf pump sits too low and you'd be in danger of losing it on speed bumps, but I stand to be corrected.

I left my PAS pump on 1z engine as it was originally on the Audi A4 1996.
It is indeed the lowest component in the engine bay now, but I fail to see it knocked off by ANY speed bumps (unless I drop the van by at least 250mm).
As I am working on the van right now, I can crawl underneath it (and under the PAS pump) without touching anything.

Have you EVER seen a speed bump fatter than me!?
I don't think so.

INTERESTING. i HAVE REFURBED THE ABL PUMP AND MOUNT BUT NOT KEEN ON HOW THE BELT TENSION WORKS OR LACK OF IT , BUT ON THE 1Z SETUP ITS PROPERLY TENSIONABLE. THE ONLY OTHER THING IS , IS THAT I HAVE USED THE ABL ALTERNATOR AND MOUNT SO DONT THINK ITS POSSIBLE TO MOUNT THE 1Z PUMP ASSEMBLEY.
sORRY FOR CAPS LOCK ERROR:eek:
