The gasket included with the Billy Boat downpipe is junk. We toss them out and use an OEM style when installing them.

Typically the O2 bung threads need a date with a thread chaser as well.

New VAG ECM Patch Releaased 11_11

New VAG ECM Patch Releaased 11_11

The V1.2 Stage 1 software was usually around 270-275 wtq on 91. The new V2.x software is much closer to 300 wtq. I personally made 318wtq with all bolt ons but complete stock exhaust.

I'll have to 100% agree with VW GTI 2.0t. We see far more of them leaking than dry these days.

VW AIR INTAKE

Do you know if the filter or the housing was the supposed issue?

The filter in mine was falling apart after 40k miles. I found a Vibrant unit that worked well to replace it. Seems to flow ok. ...

What did you do to your MK6 today?

I'm wanted oemish looking so that was why I went with the VWR can. They don't have any official tie to Volkswagen though.

Slowly losing power?

At your mileage, it's worth checking green o-ring at the turbo outlet pipe to intercooler hose junction. They live in oil and are usually mushy and swollen. This is a very common leak.
