      I'm not sure how a PCV catch will help that at all... From what I understand most of the build up comes because there is no fuel to help clean things off, not because PCV allows anything more than...

      I wish there was some way to add additional fuel injection in the intake (before the cylinders) to help prevent sludging / varnish that comes with the FSI / direct injection.

      I didn't have any problems with a 2014 RNS-510, so I wouldn't think that it would give you trouble... but the RCD and RNS are pretty different so I can't say for sure.

      Holy crap. It's accurate, and it records more than just purchases (leases show up as well, apparently), but it isn't quick to update. I bought my car as a CPO lease return back in May, my info...

      My point was that maybe both have to be replaced to enable the priming function, but I suppose it could just be a production change in the module on the top and the pumps are the same.

      It just...

      Oh, so this is both the pump and a module, screw that. Maybe mine will fail too... :)

      I personally didn't mind the NVH from the DLI mounts, but I'm guessing some people might. The only real change is that you hear what the transmission is doing (you hear it moving internally) and you...

      IMO the best mounts for engine / trans are DLI, unless you really are super sensitive to NVH (they add a bit more high-pitched noise to the cabin that the poly/rubber bushings absorb).

      Interesting. Do you have the p/n from the warranty paperwork? If the price isn't bad, I would actually consider swapping it because the long cranking is annoying. I apparently got accustomed to...

      The site you probably want to be on is nefmoto. Many of the established tuners around here are not fans, because there are many examples of nefmoto people stealing / pirating work from legit tuning...

      The OEM sat tuner only works with the OEM stereo. Modern aftermarket radios do not include a sat tuner, but they include a connection to talk to an aftermarket (SiriusXM-branded) device that acts as...

      I find it unlikely that it's broken on more than one of them in the US though...? OTOH, a Facebook group for TTRS owners had at least one guy saying his does prime... but he is in the UK and has a...

      As a former R32 owner, I agree that the 3.2 sounds better from a pure motor sound standpoint than the TTRS. There's something to be said about the fun of ~17.some pounds of boost whooshing out when...

      Doubtful, because I suspect it requires relays to be in place that I bet we don't have.

      There's probably some reason they don't enable it though, I wonder what it is. I'm pretty sure a TFSI 2.0T...
    15. Should the driver's door opening trigger fuel pump priming on TTRS?

      Subject says it all... is a TTRS supposed to prime the pump when the door opens? I bought the car used so I'm not sure if it is supposed to do that or not. (Mine does not.)

      I know the 3.2L VR6...

      The sat tuner in a stock mk2 TT is in the hatch, similar to the OEM mk5 Golf (under pass seat) and Jetta (under rear deck IIRC) setup. If you want to keep using the antenna in the sharkfin, you have...

      Boost lag sucks. :thumbup: Even with stock everything on the TTRS I can attest to that. It's not huge, but it's a major change after being used to NA VR6 throttle response, and then putting my foot...
