The GTI most likely has an integrated voltage regulator. so you don't need the original regulater.

Jus connect the big wire from the alternator to your battery. that's it.

The alternator also needs a 12v feed, but that is most likely integrated in the GTI loom. If this feed is lacking, the alternator will turn but not start charging.

Check by measuring the voltage when the engine runs. Should be around 14V.

If you haven't the immobiliser items then buy this.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/272860766126

Or contact that guy Bartek on eBay and get him to de-immobilise you current ECU.

If you look up AFN tuning ECU something like that you'll find the guy. He's based in redhill surrey.

You can buy a defeat chip:

There are cheaper versions of this too - think the one I got for the AGG I'm fitting cost about £7 posted on the slow boat from china
