    Misfire in cylinder 3 only under high load/boost

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

    This project is long dead - MFactory hasn't posted in this thread since 2019, nor anywhere on this site in over two years. So for anyone still following my saga with the Power Zone rear wavetrac - I was still chasing that vibration for the rest of the year. I got new tires in November, which...

    Short Shifter Question

    Check out dieselgeek's Super Pin, 1st Gear Getter, Cable Saver bushings, and upgraded lever shaft bushings. Last year, I overhauled my shifter with all that plus a new OEM shifter ball socket (1K0711699A), and it feels like an entirely different car. If you have a shifter that uses the stock...

    You should be ok, I'm running the ECS skid plate with an APR pendulum mount on my R.

    Gearbox oil

    Because OEM is SAE 75w GL-4 and Motul doesn't make a fluid in that spec (Motylgear 75w80 would probably work, but I've never tried it). I do run Motul 75w-90 in my rear diff and bevel box, though.

    Gearbox oil

    G055512A2 is for the 5 speed manual, G052527A2 is for the 6 speed manual. G052527L2 is not a VW part number as far as I can tell.

    Sub frame kits-inserts/new bolts/etc

    As far as I know, the only way to get the Tyrol ARP bolts is with the Tyrol collar kit. That N10141003 is what 034 includes with their collar kit to replace the WHT000431A, so you should be fine using those.

    Should i tune my stock mk6 R?

    An intercooler makes a nice difference with stage 1 too, even if it's not strictly required. Boost will hold better at higher rpm with less tapering off

    Is there a solid way to test or diagnose the ABS function?

    Go to the ABS module in VCDS and run an output test.

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

    It's still my daily, so I'm not really interested in going that route just yet. I'm planning to move to EV in a few years, so maybe I'll go more extreme with the Golf once it's out of regular service.

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

    IE stage 2, UM Haldex tune, PS4S tires, H&R springs on Bilstein shocks with stock alignment. I haven't gotten the front done yet - I'm going to need a clutch soon, so I'll have all that done along with steel shift forks at the same time.

    APR Iridium Pro Spark Plugs are Here!

    They only come in heat range 9? Don't you guys recommend range 8 for your tunes?

    suspension brands? which one is better?

    In my experience, Vaico parts are the Euro equivalent of Autozone or Advance Auto - total shit. Lemforder have performed as expected. Never heard of the other one.

    Suspension kit by URO Tuning, any good?

    Yes, it's worth it. That's the stuff that makes a car feel old. Get new endlinks while you're at it, too.

    Helix amp install issue

    Success! Turns out I read one of the diagrams incorrectly and mixed up which wire was the ground. I swapped everything to its correct position and it works perfectly now.

    Helix amp install issue

    I double checked all the wiring again - everything matches up and with the radio connected to the harness there's continuity at every pair of connections. I have no idea wtf the problem could be. I guess my next step is to order a bypass harness and see if that sends signals out to the speakers.
