    well just shelled out my new turbo..

    finally had some time to work on the GTI and its back together and driving, I found a tapped banjo bolt from ECS so I have a gauge to see what the turbo is getting for oil pressure. not sure what specs are but I noticed the turbo was seeing about 7psi less than the oil filter housing at cold...

    well just shelled out my new turbo..

    update: finally got around to pulling the turbo. I havnt taken off the compressor housing to look at the wheel, exhaust wheel felt pretty good though. Im not able to find any restrictions with the oil or cooling lines so I dont believe it was an over heat or oil starvation issue that I can tell...

    GTI slight rattle

    Id bet wastegate, I brought mine in for the a rattle at the same location a while ago. they said it was my Cobb DP. swapped it with a new unit and still was there. when I upgraded to the K04 I checked and sure enough wastegate flap had some play. you should be able to take the DP off and feel...

    Looking for rebuild recommendations

    Ill definitely check the pick up tube. I plan to replace the tensioner regardless eventually and might just put new balance shafts anyway for piece of mind and same with the oil pump at the same time since its all apart anyway would be the time to do all of that. itll be a little bit before I...

    Misfire/overboost help

    I see urotuning has a injector service kit with all 4 injectors with seals and gaskets for TB and manifold. Think it would be beneficial to do all the injectors too rather than just the obvious bad one?

    The Official Cool Story Bro Thread

    haha yea without my front bumper on at the moment and primer fenders it looks pretty jaloppy. I had to stretch the hell out of the silicone that it came with to fit on the outlet pipe. I had another silicone, just too lazy to swap it out until this happened. new one fit 1000X better.

    The Official Cool Story Bro Thread

    this past weekend I was on my way home and come up on a challenger r/t at a light. I get into the next lane and light turns green so he takes off and I figure this is the first "performance" car Ive had a chance to play with since I went K04, so I get after it a bit and as Im reeling him in and...

    Low oil pressure - causes

    same, run an oil pressure test to see what where its at. mines after I bank left coming off the highway and the only thing I havent tried is the oil pump. I cant imagine its a bearing issue if theres no glitter in the oil.
