D is a joke, dimwitted and slow. Anything over 35mph, just assume it's 6th gear.

You will gain power from the intake, the tune adapts. Stage 1 is stage 1, don't bother paying again.

I'm not familiar with this coding, but I know it works in M (manual mode). That's all I use honestly.

I have 150k, replaced a leaky radiator a couple years ago. It was just weeping, never stopped me from driving the car. Headliner fell down last year, that's it. Car has been mechanically sound.

I believe it's possible, but you will need the harness and maybe a control module.

Stop driving like 'an old man.' You're just promoting carbon buildup. I drive my car hard, K04, DSG and get 30 mpg highway. Around town this drops to about 21 or so, but I pretend I'm the Stig.

Jealous as always of the 2 door...great choice! We had some in 15-16, only a handful of 17's. Now only 4 doors. So sad, and ridiculous for a 'modular, global platform.'

That 90 degree extra is typically the stretch in stretch bolts. I might do an extra 45 and call it a day. If you feel like removing it, a little blue loctite would hold it and it's also removable.

Thread update...I ordered that metal cap from ECS. I'm just curious how many of you guys have installed it and fixed your P2015 issue? $50 is kinda high, but it beats swapping the whole manifold.

Yeah, I was thinking it's your passenger axle. Time to jack it up and start wiggling parts.

Stage 1 was the best thing I ever did to my previous GTI. You don't have to worry about anything, just keep up with oil changes. Do them at 5k, not 10k. You may have some clutch slip at high rpm,...

Everybody moved to MK7, or if you're like me, just driving the wheels off the MK6.

I still say you can avoid stretching the chain by doing 5k oil changes...I'm in a hot climate and run mobil 1 10w-40, sitting at 150k.

P2015 has anyone diagnosed this?

I know it's the intake flapper position, I know it was covered by extended warranty, I know most people just swap the manifold out.

What I am wondering is if anyone has cleaned up the flaps or...

It stops automatically at the top, so I would just wing it. Extra switches are not needed. I only really use this when it's hot out to open them or raining to close them.
