      Thanks for the feedback dopo, unfortunate you didn't get to see the difference in car. "Smoother idle" should translate to quieter clatter.

      When I get my VCDS gear back, I'll see what change (if...

      I don't have any experience, but from what I've read, the 262 is touted the best FI cam for an otherwise stock head 12v VR6.

      Single Mass/Light Weight Flywheel Clatter

      As just about anybody with LWFW knows, with the A/C on and idling, the clatter from the transmission lash is loud, like a handful of marbles inside an old poppet injector diesel loud. Has anybody...

      It's possible they broke a ring during install if they used a flat compressor.

      On a car with natural understeer, you possibly could. Just brace the rear even harder (and a nice fat sway bar).
