      I really don't care to stretch it out. Doesn't help that a 3" MAF won't fit my 42 Draft Designs intake. For the price I paid, I'd hate to get rid of it.

      I'm fairly certain the Unitronic K04-001 tune calls for a 3" MAF. This is quite annoying. I either need to find an inlet/intake setup that works with a 3" MAF or switch tunes.

      I'd highly recommend you test for exhaust leaks. Perform what's detailed here. Have someone restrict the exhaust at the tailpipe with a towel to increase exhaust pressure. You will most definitely...

      I think you may want to cut your losses and invest in a new coil pack harness. It sounds like they were butchered prior to you cleaning them. You said it yourself... you used a lighter and the wire...

      Does the 17705/P1297 DTC cause your CEL to illuminate?

      Have you checked for exhaust leaks? What you're describing sounds almost identical to the issue I was experiencing.

      Probably going to want...

    9. Inlet pipe options for 3" MAF to K04-001 compressor

      Are there any retail inlet pipe options out there for this configuration? I can't seem to find any.

      It's a picture from the blog post that he linked above. The blog's author had a wastegate flap detach and land at the catalytic converter.

      On a stage one tune you're going to be wanting to run BKR7E plugs that are gapped to 0.028".

      Figured I would put an end to this saga. Ultimately, I had several items that needed addressing:


      After installing the DW65v pump, at some point, the pick up on the bottom of the pump housing...

      Weird noise during VAG-COM output tests

      I figured I would get a higher quality and faster response by posting this here instead of the VAG-COM Diagnostic Forum...

      When running the VAG-COM output tests, I can hear a constant hiss that...

      Excellent. Thanks for the response. I have a kit with several adapters. Using the other plugged port on the top of the cooler looked nearly impossible.
    16. Can the oil pressure switch port be used to test oil pressure with a gauge?

      It looks like the Bentley describes doing this to test oil pressure and the oil pressure switch. Just want to confirm before removing it.

      If so, can it be removed without draining the oil?
    17. Need help with fuel pickup that keeps detaching

      I installed a DW65v in-tank fuel pump and it seems to be putting enough pressure on the pump housing that it is causing the pickup piece on the bottom to detach. Is there a glue or epoxy I could use...

      Pre/post-cat oxygen sensor tests

      I'm trying to perform the oxygen sensor tests accessed by blocks 034 and 036. When I depress the brake and throttle, the test starts, but VCDS never changes the field value to 'TEST OFF/ON'. The test...
    19. Is it normal for the ebrake cable to look like this?

      My plan is to do an ebrake cable adjustment. It's just too loose. Is it normal for the silver distribution piece to be so angled? It's nowhere near perpendicular to the cables. Once side is tighter...

      A modest tune and VWR springs (which should have been included with the car). No need to go crazy.
