I don't have the patience needed to detail cars. I do some welding and generic car work on the side.

Changing my injectors as I type this. Pretty sure these were the cause of my fueling issue. Why the heck would this thing be covered in oil?! Blow by? God I hope not. Maybe the injector didn't have a good seal and oil leak down around it, I don't know.

Yea it was just one injector covered in oil. They all 4 looked like crap though, covered in carbon. My fueling looks better now and my injection times dropped from near 10ms to mid 7's during WOT. My STFT's still look like crap though. I've been fighting this with Alex for a while now. I can't figure it out. I've triple and quadruple checked everything for leaks and haven't found any. Brand new O2 sensor, injectors, lpfp and 6.6 bar filter, cleaned the maf sensor. Nothings working. My trims are fluctuating up and down during WOT and Alex told me it was most likely a leak in the charge system or around the O2 sensor. I've fixed every leak I've found and they still fluctuate.

Looking into the flash tune for my newly bolted on catless DP/exhaust, i also have an intake and the AP. Is there any other things i should look into before grabbing a tune and sticking with this setup for a while?

That's pretty much what I've been running minus the exhaust. If yours is a 6MT, I would maybe look into upgrading the clutch so you could get the high torque tune. My clutch gave out very shortly after tuning it even with the low torque tune. If yours is a DSG, ignore what I said.

Yea i'm a 6mt guy, the clutch already feels mushy so it's probably time for something different anyways. I'll have to look up recommended clutch upgrades, i used to drive an s2000 with a stg3 clutch and that thing gave me knee pain like no other!

Really i just wanted to avoid missing any obvious stuff before i go through with the tune. Clutch is now on the list, thanks!

R8 coilpacks are another thing worth mentioning. I blew a coilpack driving home after getting tuned with APR. The red R8 coilpacks seem to be pretty reliable.

while im not sure how thr crackles work, i imagine they're pressure driven. BOV releases pressure from the system, possibly not allowing the crackles to form? just a guess.

that makes sense to me hence why you need to be in boost and above 3-4krpms for the crackles to work. But Alex always seems to correct us soon enough after our speculation.

Has anyone been able to get in touch with Alex recently? Still currently being tuned but haven't heard from him in a couple weeks.
