      Just pull it straight off and you won't break anything. Yes, it takes some effort. Part of the reason is likely that it's still under vacuum.

      No, just be careful putting it back in so that you don't slice it. I usually coat it will oil to make sure it does not get hung up.

      Strange, I had a CEL with mine within 50 minutes of driving with the TBE on and the Stage 1+ tune. Couldn't get the Stage 2+ tune done for a couple of days after having it installed.

      You can run it with a stock ECU but, you'll get a check engine light for catalyst efficiency. And, if you live in a state with an emissions check, you'll likely fail for that. Or, you could try...

      A low key battery would not prevent the RVC from deploying so, it's something else. Since you've swapped out the RVC it's something upstream. When you replaced it did you also replace the wiring or...

      Just be aware that the ECU likely recorded the over rev and stored a code that you can't clear with vag-com. It's highly probable that they'll see than and deny you warranty coverage and be less...

      Might want to pull the HPFP and check the cam follower, maybe that went? But, I imagine you'd be throwing codes for rail pressure not being up to requested. But, can't hurt to check.

      If something...

      What do you mean by missed shift? Did you do a money shift where you meant to grab 4th but grabbed 2nd when downshifting?

      Oh, and of course the problem would not reproduce today. Since it's not under warranty I'm just telling them to replace the WIN. It's gotten to the point where my wife does not want to drive it and...

      Yeah, it's not that. The recall is about the key going from On to ACC and shutting off the engine while you're driving. The fix is to put a detent ring into the WIN, not replace the WIN. Most likely...

      Removed the AWE CCB Intake and added a filter on a stick. The Neuspeed seems to be the better intake performance-wise. Fuel trims are a lot better than the CCB. Performance seems to be better too.
