slight vibration on the brake pedal

Hey guys

I don't know what happened. But ever since I got my stage 2+, I have been getting slight brake pedal vibration that comes and goes randomly. Its not bad, but it feels like when you have clutch on engage point and holding on the brake pedal. Not as shacky but that's the closest feeling I can explain. Any ideas why? Couldn't find any answers on the forum.

What sort of intake are you running? Check to make.sure its not rubbing on the lines.

I am running the cts intake but it was fine before the tune. Actually when I got the tune done, they gave me a prototype heat shield and installed it for me. At first I thought the heat shield was the issue, so I got them to remove it today. But the vibration is still there. Also, I think the fsi setup is a bit different from tsi. All the vibration threads I found was tsi with intake.

I had it also. It's your tube resting on top or really close to the brake reservoir cap. FSI and TSI both have the exact same problem with A/M intakes.

No problem, it's at the 90* bend in your intake tract. (below) The intake pipe rests on it and vibes through your brake pedal.
Easy fix! Just loosen the clamps at both ends and pull up slightly on the pipe. Be sure to leave a couple fingers clearance between the pipe and the cap.

PM me your cell and I'll send you a couple pics if you want.

I had the same issue with my ape stage 1 and 2 pipe. I checked all my clearances and it went away. You should be fine after the small adjustment.
