Yeah, I can't imagine buying a new motor for this car is worth it at all. They are already worth like nothing when you try to trade them in. VW cars depreciate in value terribly. Unless as someone...

Exactly. They don't want to cut into their own markets regarding power levels and price. As you know, you can easily unlock an extra 60+hp just from a tune and no additional hardware, so why didn't...

I own there Intake and K04. All thumbs up from me with IE. No broken tab yet on the intake and I've had it for more than 2 years now. Can't speak about other brand K04s because I don't ride in K04...

Hmmm, I'm almost wondering if these are the symptoms that I've been experiencing or different.

I want to say that if I floor it in second, at high RPM it almost feels like there is a power loss...

That's good. It's actually funny that my dealer claimed that I was pushing too much power on the stock turbo. They are an APR authorized dealer... They sell Stage 2 to their customers, but then go...

Had same code, mine was a blown turbo. Changed out the DV and still persisted. If you got no turbo action, I doubt it's a bad DV.

No fitment issues and I got mine used from a kid that traded me it for my AgencyPower exhaust.

That sounds about right for Stage 2. I mean Stage2 usually tops at what? 18-19 and that would be if your gauge is reading accurately. 16 isn't far off... Then again I think Stg1 would also read 16....

Honestly, I think the best thing you can do with these cars is just get a DP, then fatten up your stock tips so they don't look so puny. I haven't heard a real nice sounding exhaust on this car yet....

I did the red coils when going Stg1 about 4 years ago and haven't touched them since. I then changed the GK Iridium Spark Plugs mentioned when changing to K04 and no issues thus far.

Anything above what? 12lbs? That would be tuned. As high as 19 I would say it's stg2. While your exhaust can look stock in the back, all you need is a downpipe for it. If you car has even SOME sound,...

Just to be sure, this isn't also linked to having something plugged into your cigarette lighter such as a phone charger? That's when I get static. Real annoying.
