Never was able to get the VCDS to import logs correctly. Ended up going to a VW dealership to have it diagnosed. They're pretty confident that my valve springs are the issue (valve float). They referred me to a local APR dealer to get the work done there. VW also quoted $1,100 for a carbon cleaning, so I'll just do it at the APR dealer once they run their diagnostics.

Cylinder 2 is main misfire, cylinder 3 also misfires. If anyone is looking for the solution once the car has work done to it (in 1-2 weeks hopefully) I'll either update here or in my journal (link in sig).

Were they at least going to kiss you before they fucked you?

They said strictly no kissing. Always thought that was odd.

I'm going to all the wrong places it seems. This non-dealer shop has no limits though!

New update! It doesn't seem to be the valve springs after all (at this point). It seems to be an injector(s) issue and in need of a carbon cleaning. Parts are coming in tomorrow and the work should be done by Wednesday/Thursday. I'll know then whether or not those were the complete cause of my CEL.

So far no CEL, but it's snowing here and I am still on my summer tires. I didn't have a chance to redline it (where the problem commonly occurred). I will say it felt much smoother in the power delivery and maybe more powerful? I think the "extra" power is just a false butt dyno since I was driving a N/A 140 hp car the past week.

I will also say that the hesitation in the 2-3k RPM range under lighter throttle is once again fixed. It was initially fixed when I put in the GFB DV+, but that came back a short while later. Now it seems like everything is more linear. The car also idles smoother and doesn't feel down on power in the cold.
Quick summary in case someone else is searching for answers on their car. After a year of on and off CEL I finally feel like the car is running properly.

CEL is back P0300 and P0302
Not sure about OpenOffice but I think you have a chance to change the views before you do the final import of a CSV file to get it to look like you want it to.

Or you could use Google Sheets, which is free and CSV files open up just like Excel.

Also have look at a little video I made a while back about logging. It is easiest to use the Advanced Measuring blocks to pick and choose what you want to log. Probably 2, maybe 3 groups max with that cable you have. The HEX+Can cable has turbo mode and a higher sampling rate. The more data you choose to log the fewer samples you will get.

my youtube video

I must have been doing something wrong when loading it. I'll try Google Sheets next chance I get/need to do logs.

I think I logged 4 things at a time, but not whole groups. Still a helpful video, thanks.
