    DIY - TT-RS control arm bushings, without a press

    I used 1K0199231K and 1K0199232K - fitments guides say they're for an A3. Does the TT bracket not bolt up, or is it an alignment change?

    DIY - TT-RS control arm bushings, without a press

    Is there a reason you shouldn't use the RS3 bracket in a Golf? I've been running them in my R for a few miles now and everything seems ok. I'm wondering if I should replace them though.

    MK6 R, Factory intake box, Is something missing here?

    It appears to be a drain, or maybe a vent to get hot air from the exhaust to help with cold start? My stock intake has it, too.

    Chance for a MFactory Rear LSD for Golf R/A3/TT

    My issues were down to the installation, and the current vibration seems to be unrelated (it's through the steering wheel) - I'm happy with the rear LSD so far. Now that I've been able to push it a little bit, the car does seem to track better in cornering, especially accelerating out of a...

    Chance for a MFactory Rear LSD for Golf R/A3/TT

    I got it back into the shop to make the adjustment. The noise and vibration from the rear are gone and it drives smooth around town, but now I have a vibration through the steering wheel above 70mph. Guessing that's a separate issue, but still...it's frustrating.

    Chance for a MFactory Rear LSD for Golf R/A3/TT

    Nope, the vibration was just softer on summers, it's still there. I got under the car to take a look, and it turns out the shop installed the rear propshaft coupler incorrectly, so it's out of position and causing issues. I'll get that fixed and see how it goes.

    No boost, no codes.

    Did you replace the manifold and turbine housing, or just the gasket? If you replaced the manifold, did you verify that the turbo spins freely in it?

    Broken Golf R

    You can test it by bracing the turbo inlet hose with a hose clamp. If that fixes the issue, email IE and they'll send you a revised hose for free if you're the original purchaser or for $20 if you're not. A slipping clutch will make it pull throttle a bit, it won't go into limp mode.

    I'm done with ECS

    Or at least from retail outlets who don't have their heads up their asses. But yeah, if anything on a retailer's website says 'direct ship' or 'drop ship' instead of 'in stock', it all comes from the manufacturer anyway. Just order it from them.

    2022 Formula 1 Season

    I wonder if they saw how slow Mercedes is trying to fix it, and decided it's best to just bank the points while they can. I wouldn't be surprised if the Merc is monstrously quick once they get on top of the issue.

    I'm done with ECS

    Yeah they were $700 for a long time and I thought that was ridiculous. I paid $500 shipped on vortex for mine back in 2017. Maybe now is the time to sell them. :ROFLMAO:

    My R is now a Supra??

    Nope, just "we don't touch the DV". If that's true, then I don't know why it wouldn't open in normal driving. It did the same thing with a new OEM DV, a Turbosmart, and a DV+, so it's definitely something with the tune. With UM software I get the 'pssshhh' sound that you would expect.

    Down pipe, flex pipe failure....

    I've always hated these woven flex pipe sections. In case anyone didn't know, you can buy the OEM style accordion flex sections as a replacement. For example
