Replaced the gasket today, cost me 30$ CAD tax includes, cleaned up oil and now the car is making less back-fire and is more responsive and feel betters, performance increased for sure, the oil was affecting performances.

Got few issues with the shipping of my new coil packs and sparks, I should receive the package tomorrow

Skipping the break fluid flush.. who really does that honestly?

Installed Audi coil packs and NGK iridium sparks. I also replaced my valve cover gasket, no more leak and no more oil on my coil packs and sparks.

Throttle response is improved, but I don't notice it that much

I also started putting 94 octane gas on my car (I got UM Stage 2) and it really makes driving more fun, shifting is more smooth, more torque and I got torque at lower RPM, very fun and it only cost 5$CAD more per tank, I can live with it and it makes driving so much funnier !

Should receive my engine and tranny mounts today, should be installed for Tuesday

Ordered spulen dog bone kit today, I'm also planing to buy USP Stainless Brake lines kit and stoptech brakes bad ( front and rear) + brake fluid

And just for your ear, one of my friend took a video of my 2.5L making some kind of back-fire:

Have fun watching !

I chance OE VW brake fluid every two year. I like a solid pedal feel.

Finally I bought Motul RBF600, USP stainless brake lines kit and stoptech pads.

Check engine light turned on this morning, I will look at the error code tonight, hoping it's an easy fix

Edit: Nothing that bad, here are my error code:

p0327 - Knock sensor 1 (g61)

p0332 - knock sensor 2 (g66)

Cleared the fault code and made a quick run, no check engine, seems fine for the moment and no knocking sound

Did you drive through a large puddle, if the knock sensors get wet you will get those error codes. Once they dry they should be ok.

Could be the Tune advancing the timing aggressively on bad gas.

The check engine turned on again and I made a few search's about the knock sensor. A crystal on the sensor transform the vibration into voltage which is sent to the computer. The error about low signal appear when the voltage is under 0.5V.

So my hypothesis is that the higher octane reduced the vibration so much that voltage can't reach 0.5V

So I waited that my tank get empty and put some 91 and no more check engine.

It's probably only a coincidence, I think your answer about large puddle is way better, because I drove on 94 for like ,2 days without issue, I did drive with 94 1 day with my new coil packs and new sparks. And in the morning, there was no check engine, I did drive through large puddle and I stopped the car after reaching my destination, then when I restarted my car, the check engine turned on. Your answer is logic, I feel bad to have filled up my tank with 91, I miss the extra torque ^^ Shell V-Power 91 cost the same than the petrol-canada 94, the 94 got ethanol though.

Next time, I will fill up with 94 and check for check engine

Thanks for your answer

Since my last post, I got my 034Motorsport engine and trans mounts installed, the engine doesn't move at all even at 7000rpm, I don't notice any new vibration except on reverse gear, there is more vibration on friction point, but I like that

Really a good purchase, take arround 1.5 hours to do both mounts.

I ordered USP stainless brake line, stoptech pads and brake fluid, I should receive the package this friday, I will have some fun this weed end ^^

I am still waiting for my dogbone to arrive, should be shipped next week, I also ordered H&R 28mm front and 24mm rear sway bars today. (I like the fact that it doesn't require maintenance)

Next things I'm planning to buy is rim and new tires. Then I will look for Whiteline Anti-Lift / Caster Kit and new brake rotor, maybe Hawk rotors.

I am also close to the 100k milles and it's recommanded to change the serpentine and ac belt and tensionners, I have seen a full kit on ECS for 153$usd, it was on sale last week I think, I should have bought it last week Anyway, I will look to change this, I don't know if it's hard to install, I have read that replacing the belt is a 30mins job.

Got my windows tinted, super stoked on that. I got 35% all around. (VA Limit = 55F/35R)

Also got my Golf R side skirts painted to Candy White and mounted yesterday.
