I had to replace my rear main seal after a bad PCV. I believe this was the one (https://www.excelerateperformance.com/news/2-0t-tsi-rear-main-seal-solution) put in. As far as I was told it won't fail...

I checked to see what valve springs I had today. Using this thread (https://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=50417) I was able to compare springs. I have one of the weak versions.

I look inside every time I pull the plugs. I did not see any oil in the engine or on the plugs. I do have a camera that can get in there, I can double check.

P0302 back again, at a loss as to why.

I've had this code before, and pretty much ever since I went Stage 2 APR (I think that's when it presented). Usually happens at 6k+ RPM, but also happens sitting at 4k RPM in 3rd for example. CEL...

I think he means stock we can't brake boost. Doesn't the car cut fuel or something when the gas and brake are pressed simultaneously? I thought I read that somewhere on a tuners page months ago... I...

I believe I got those done at the same time, so I wouldn't be able to attribute new noise to one thing over the other. I also have the Stage 2 Daily rather than the Endurance. While driving and it's...

Makes sense. A little throttle control and I'll be ok, but it would be nice to have the option of no hop! I'm not sure how the LSD impacts things either. It sure is fun in the corners though!

I have an APR catch can, got it before this thread was started so all I can do is be vigilant in emptying it. I do the same thing as riceburner and use an oil resoviour for old fluids.

This was about as level as I could get mine. They're not perfect, probably due to my installation, but they're better than not having them.

What's the fault code you are getting?

If you have to pay for labor anyway it's probably a good time for a carbon cleaning. Unless you have done that recently.

Good call. If the 2013 isn't covered, but still has an older revision intake, this would be the time to replace it for $150 like you stated.

The intake manifold is still under extended warranty though, right? When mine went I got all of the work done for free and a free loaner car from VW.
