      First, that's not at the wheels.

      Second, that is with IE's "kit" which is their tune and a intake that is a copy of a style that has shown a large loss in power, large increase in IAT's and...

      Huh?

      5w30 oils are "thinner" then 0w40 at operating temp, and almost the same at 32*. And a 0W40 is in NO way a "very thin" oil. In reference to Kinematic viscosity.

      And there is absolutely...

      The guys using Bulk China/Ebay LED's are blinding to say the least, and you can tell from 10 feet away they aren't factory.


      I was paying between $1-2 dollars a LED depending on color when I did...

      Factory ports are M10x1.0 gasketed. Most aftermarket senders are 1/8" NPT.


      They will thread into each other and seem ok, but DO NOT try it. You can crack the housing, and it will leak.

      Post a picture of your intake routing.

      Also, what 4" maf housing? There are a few floating around that put the Sensor offset in the pipe and give inaccurate readings.

      I have used a few sets from them for a few different cars. GREAT quality and value. They also actually listen to requests/ideas from customers.

      I would recommend them heavily.

      Larger than stock valves are a borderline waste on stock bore motors, and going too large is detrimental. The stock head/bore already has trouble with valve shrouding, no reason to make it worse,...

      I can guarantee you haven't seen a head that warped perpendicular to the deck surface to cause a leak on a manifold mating surface.

      They stopped using them late in Mk3 production.

      They will in NO way cause ANY vibration if removed, and they will NOT "tighten" the other bolt if one becomes loose, as their purpuse is to...

      Tie fishing line to the tip and feed both in the cylinder. You can then pull the line to bend the head to be able to see the valves/combustion chamber.;)

      Running into this same issue right now. Have a day into diagnosing it, and getting no where. Pops the 3/4 coil trace in the ICM a minute into idling.

      Any luck on your issue?

      So glad you are back here with all your useful input.

      You are an asset to the Mk3 community. Just a wealth of unabridged knowledge.

      You people need to learn to think before you open your mouths.

      You can pull the insert retaining cap with a pipe wrench, or a VERY good pin spanner, but I have broke a few opening them. Some of the retaining caps are REALLY on there.

      No chance you are near 160. Not even in the same ballpark.

      They won't even bolt up to the wrong rack.





      You could have Mk2 power rack inners if the PO messed up. They will cause this.
