My 1999 mk4 is throwing codes p0341 and p1580. on 1999 Volkswagen GTI

It was starting up and I would put it in gear and drive and around 2500 rpm I would lose all power and it would stall on me. Now, it won't even start.

It's a 1999.5 GTI MK4...I replaced the camshaft position sensor and it's still showing the code...and still won't start...so I still have the two codes...

did you do a compression test to verify timing belt?? Roy if the timing belt broke or jumped time, it will set a cam sensor code. the spark plugs have to be removed and a tester installed for the amount of compression. Roy

Do you think that could be the reason that I lose power at 2500 rpm and basically stall? Or do you think since I replaced the throttle body, TPS, and camshaft position sensor I just need it reprogrammed with VAG-COM?
