How that happens after pushing all the fluid I've pushed through the system with the power bleeder is beyond me but pedal is good now. Just a light softness at engagement and then firms up like your pushing against a brick wall if you really stand on them. So I attribute my undetected union leak and air trapped in the MC for all my heart ache on this.

So I don't intend on going forward with the stand alone vacuum pump for the booster at this point. With this setup the brake pedal and the gas pedal seem to sit at the exact same height. I prefer the brake pedal to be just a bit higher so I'm probably going to 3D print a shim to it between the pedal and the locking clip for the booster push rod. I'll have to modify the clip a bit but no rush on all this. Right now I'm just happy to finally have what I was looking for with the feel of this pedal

Good work! I'm happy for your success. Took 2 days to read 38 pages and it was very interesting.
Thanks to your research now I know that I dont want to go with your MC setup, too much hassle hahaha!

One question though, whats your rear setup? Toureg OE is bolt on or you had to get custom parts?

Does anyone know if there will be any issues installing TTRS MC on stock GTI brakes?
I will have it shipped before the 18Z and was thinking to instead of right away..

You will have 30% less pedal travel and the pedal will be really firm, I would hold off on it.

Hey everyone,

I just put in my TTRS MC and reservoir and I tried to power bleed my lines but air is coming out through this on the reservoir (see picture).

How are you guys plugging that tube?

Thanks!

That's for the clutch line that feeds into the clutch master cylinder and throwout bearing. The MC came off of manual Tranny car. You are going to have to come up with a rubber cap or something to cover it up.

The rhd ones have the line connections on the opposite side so it doesn't work

I have just ordered all my parts for an 18z and rear 4 piston kit.

For the rear I purchased a kit from Fabless dot com that provides the necessary special mounting bracket and it utilizes the small Wilwood e-brake calipers to replace your lost parking brake capability rather that keeping your original rear caliper in place to use only as a parking brake. LINK

Also ordering RS3/TTRS MC from HS Tuning with modified reservoir. LINK
