If you route the can back to the intake you still get some oil vapor coming through and the throttle body flap acts as a condensor so oil collects on it and eventually makes its way to the hole where...

Cleaned the MAP sensor today. Was pretty dirty. VW should add this into the 30/60/90 services. Curious why they didn't put the sensor on top of the intake manifold as it would stay cleaner.

I don't think it will fit the golf. There is one part number that is very close 07K-128-063-A vs 07K-133-062-A (golf part#). On the golf the partial gear is one piece and fits directly on the shaft...

Ordering anything direct from china is always a gamble. It may show up one day. I was going to make a joke about child labor being slower to make things but I thought it would be in bad taste.

Unless you went to lower profile or Z rated tires or something it's probably just the rubber compound.

Unfortunately no price reduction, except on the valve cover. I like the design of their standard CAI but not the SRI version. I don't like that it is hard plumbed. I get why they did it (so it...

They have this tune up on their website now.

I noticed the 2.5L valve cover, fuel rail and CAI are all showing limited stock available. I am wondering if they are discontinuing these items.

I think the whole intake system gets much hotter with the aluminum SRI than with the stock plastic IM and that heat transfers to the TB and intake as it is so short. I am still using the p-flow...

Yes just like the PCV is not serviceable so you have to buy the whole valve cover according to VW. Such BS. VW may not sell it separately but you can buy just the springs online.
