Sounds about right. Honestly if you are going foward with all that you should think about another car for back up or daily driver./?

Barely. At first the gear you shred will be like a slipping clutch so you will think you are fine to get some where. I was planning on driving my car back to charlotte to fixed it ND just 5th and 6th gear it all the way home 3-4hrs away. I got to the Walmart to pick up snacks which was like 4-8miles from where I shredded. Pulled into a parking spot. A piece got stuck in a gear I guess and that was that. Couldn't get into any gears and had to be towed from there. That pic is on my instagram, lol

It will misfire about the same as if you zipped tied the flaps open during the initial startup high rev but once it switches to closed loop mode, it will run fine until the next cold start

The only one I know that promises to fix it is HPA with their tune, which won't help those running other tuners/custom tunes. Eurodyne, with their barebones Maestro file, won't be able to fix it since you need access to other maps that Chris over at Eurodyne say don't exist on the TSI platform even though I have personally seen them using AlienTech tools

So if you're the type that likes to tune it yourself or have someone local tune it, the only option would be to use AlienTech tools to get access to the whole ECU, which can get costly for the whole setup. But then again, you can start your own tuning company with that setup like one known tuner on here did
