Awesome Mark!! I just watchd the Jalopnik/Torchinsky/Humble Mechani/DAP video last week. Must be a satisfying feeling!!
Thanks Ben for the well wishes.Congrats on the new place and good luck with the move Mark. Collingwood is gorgeous. Some great driving areas up there.
Good to hear everything with the tiggy is good.....and happy wife as they say....
Awesome news Mark. I upgraded to the MLUE intake for a change and it's been fun with a deeper growl on the induction side!! I've been driving a ton recently as well...just hit 224k and the car is still fierce!!!It's been a few months now and over 15k km since the rebuild, wid no issues, ...so yes, I'm open to getting another vehicle with an EA888 but with a newer version.
Man had I known/remembered you lived in Markham would have offered to help!Yup great feeling! Pretty much everything they showed i had, the lower chain cover hard wear marks where the chain made contact, I just reformed hat i could and replaced the chain with the new design.
Been a couple of weeks and the wife is happy so i'm in a good place. Friday we are officilly out of our house in Markham having the Tiguan has helped move a lot of our stuff to storage locks in Collingood, I have over 600 km on the clock since the rebuild.

My mechanic did the wife's Tiggy (no explosions) timing chain and cam cover gasket
Good luck in Collingwood!
I've been looking everywhere to figure out which bolt to order. Shopdap.com in their cam bridge section only has 2 different M6 T30 bolts listed, one of them is 16mm long and the other is 50mm long. It looks like the 50mm one is just the standard 6 that go into the cam bridge but where do I find the one time use bolt that goes into the exhaust shaft?VW 2.0 TSI Exhaust Cam Washer and Bolt Important Info - KNOW WHICH BOLT YOU GOT FIRST, M6 T30 or M8 Triple Square and use some Loctite as well; as the rotation of the cam is in the direction to loosen the Bolt, if it is not secured. This is probably why VW/Audi upgraded to the larger M8 Triple Square Bolt, so they could tighten it more securely.
M6 T30 Bolt Torque to 8 Nm plus 90 degrees additional. Use new bolt.
M8 Triple Square Bolt Torque to 20 Nm plus 90 degrees additional. Use new bolt.
