^this. I do 40k because it's easier for me to remember and I do it with my dsg service.

I do these

Because they are cheaper than the Platinum ones and I replace every 40k. Platinum ones will last longer so get those instead if you want to do 60k intervals.

I know there is a thread on this (but the searching I need would take forever) but do I have to swap the chain in the tensioner upgrade? Looking at the kits online (ECS, HStuning). Thanks

To plug the second boost tap hole in the Newsouth multi-tap hose, am I supposed to screw in the plug all the way? I think the instructions said to turn until snug then add another 1/4 turn or something. I forget and I threw away the instructions.

I only ask because it seems like the plug keeps coming loose and I have to keep re-tightening it. It also looks weird sticking out a bunch as I can see quite a bit of thread on the plug.

If you dont plan on ever using that plug/tap just add a bit of loctite to the threads and send it.

So I'm thinking about having my neuspeed wheels powdercoated. I've still got my old detroits stacked up in the garage with the oem tires. When I removed those wheels I remember how much I hated those tires, they were just loud and harsh.

If I get my wheels powdercoated I still need to be able to drive around for a few days. I could put the detroits back on temporarily for a few days. I'm just worried about the tires. I only have a 10 minute drive to work, and I don't ever have to go faster than 45, so I'm thinking I'd be ok. I just wanted to see what other people thought. Should I go for it and put the detroits on or find another ride for a few days?

Are they all seasons? Long as they aren't damaged, have reasonable tread, and hold air, go for it.

Word, I'll take a closer look at them this weekend before I take my wheels off.
I got my appointment set to get them powdercoated next week. I'm excited.
