    NEW Theory! TSI engine does not consume oil!

    Your PCV does! All that oil that people are loosing just gets transported in your intake tract. If everyone's car ate that much oil, all your internals would be screwed, and your compression would be crap. Makes sense why switching oil benefits many people in that regard, as the evaporative...

    EGR OFF tune?

    A lot of enthusiasts on other platforms block or delete EGR. On the tsi, it is done through the timing and gunk still builds up around the valves.... catchcan or no catchcan, blocking the front PCV or not , back pcv drain to atmosphere or not. So what is there to do to reduce carbonbuildup...

    265 Tires on the front :)

    I can assure you that this is wrong and a big misconception. Square setups rotate better for RWD cars rather then staggered. For FWD reverse stagger setups rotate better.

    265 Tires on the front :)

    What makes you think that sway bars are not involved? I can assure you the full width of the tires is being used. Stickier tires are always on the radar, for the moment, this is the setup I can live with. Previous set :)
