    2012 GTI misfiring at idle. Out of ideas

    Do you have the newest revision intake manifold? It's possible the flapper is damaged and causing air to flow incorrectly at idle. Mine would misfire like crazy at idle until I had the new intake manifold done.

    Intake manifold lever arm fix kit

    I did install the ECS fix kit, it worked great for about a week. Then, blammo P2015. I was lucky enough to have extended warranty still, though.

    That actually might indicate that the ATA horn is failing. I believe it's in the right front fender, and is separate from the main horn. It could also have some corrosion built up in the connector pins, so sometimes makes a better connection than other times...

    Nope, even waiting for the t-stat to open and it will blow cold until I give the knob a little twist. The ATA thing sure took some trial and error to sort. I even scanned and have no codes, so no where to begin, haha.

    Fuel economy gains after stage 1 tune

    Hello all, I recently purchased a mk6 GTI and am considering doing a stage 1 tune. As it will be my daily driver, I'm very interested in fuel economy. Has anyone shown any fuel economy gains with a stage 1?
