I'm thinking of replacing the O2 sensor.
I shall as well try out the EVOMS sometime this weekend if you don't mind

Sure, no worries, lets meet up somewhere we can swap it out. May I try out the carbonio?
Also Most probably going to be putting in the DP on friday though. (atleast I'm going to try, LOL!)

I've read the thread and seems like a leaking DP could be a cause. I'll check all connections first and hopefully solve the problem.

Traced the TBE to see any possibility of a loose connection and found one. Didn't get time to fix the connection so probably sometime this week.

I replaced my engine oil today and once I started the engine, the engine started shaking! I got worried that I immediately switched it off. I then started the engine again and it kept shaking

Replaced my OEM spark plugs with NGK's "PFRZB Double Platinum" plugs. Car feels smooth at idle and acceleration. I checked the gap before installing and all were good (0.028").

Nice car, clean mods.. And I totally understand you about the shipping, everytime I'm so glad when I can join a GB so that including the shipping I pay about the same as American standard price..

Unitronic has dealers over there or you had your ECU shipped?

On your dyno sheet it says K04 with Meth but you didn't mention it on your mod list..

Thanks for the kind words sir

Well its something I won't be able to change I recently bought the trunk parcel tray and shipping alone was $85!

There's a dealer in my neighboring country (Tensai Tuning, UAE) which is just a 4-5hours drive. So i did mine there. Awesome guys

Regarding the WMI, I just didn't want to mention it but I guess that I'll add it to my mod's list in the 1st page now.

Nothing much going on ATM but I secured my self one awesome deal. I got a good set of Cayene calipers + braided lines = CHEAP

They were on a MKV GTI and the owner wanted to get rid of the set as it has been in his garage for sometime. A paint job is a must and I've got an idea on what colour to paint the calipers ...

Thanks buddy
I used a feeler gauge to measure the spark plugs gap and they all were good except one that I had to slightly re-gap.
Have you scanned your car (VAGCOM)?

oh ok.. I don't have a feeler gauge. My car was scanned at a dealership and they replaced my coil pack because I was gettin misfires which is common I think. But just recently its got the rough idle.. I'm gunna just replace the 4 spark plugs I think.. Although ive always found vw's have pretty rough idles to begin with.

What mod have you got so far? Those stupid coilpacks works fine in some cars, and shit in other. A friend is on Revo Stage 2 tune and had no issues with his coilpacks where the other has the same tune and mods, but replaced his coilpacks to R8 after having a misfiring issues.
