      I noticed the same noise with my dp. The problem was the bolts that connected the reducer between the dp and the stock catback were loose enough to allow some movement. This manifested itself one day...

      It took a long time for the flakes to grow on me. But they have now and dammit I love these wheels.

      If this turns out to be a sign of things to come, then my time with this car will be short. If this was a fluke, which I suspect, then I'll hang on to it at least through the warranty period.

      Final update. Car is back up and running, but not before some trial and error.

      To recap: the original problem was a consistent misfire that left the car running on 3 cylinders. Pulled a whole...

      If they keep it another two weeks, maybe. It's not a lemon until it's out of service for at least 30 days with the same problem.

      Just spitballing. I find it very unlikely that I got a bad head on the car, and a bad replacement head. The ECU is stock. I just wonder if the injectors, coils, and plugs are not playing nicely...

      Cylinder 4 was fine with the original head. But now it's bad with replacement 1 and replacement 2 is on the way. Maybe the ECU is damaged?

      Has anyone heard of this type of issue with the TSI? I haven't been able to dig up anything on the 3rd gen 2.0. 2 bad heads in a row? Very odd.

      11 days later. New head installed, misfire on cylinder 2 gone. However, before they could get it back to me, it started misfiring in cylinder 4. Ugh.

      I'm at 25k so my power train warranty is almost half gone. I'm gonna push for an extension. Hopefully this was a one-time failure. Neither the dealer nor VW have had to replace a head on a mk7 before...

      VW is covering it under warranty. This does worry me about the long-term health of this engine. If this happens again out of warranty then I would need some luck.

      Update: New injector, still misfiring. VW tech in Germany called to consult, new cylinder head being installed. Faulty intake valve seat. Not due to carbon buildup.

      Given how common coil failures are, how could they not have already considered that?

      Update: injector wasn't the only issue. They are calling VW tech to take a look.

      I'm going to hold off for now, until I see how well these injectors hold up over tens of thousands of miles with more than stock power thrown at them. I'm having a hard time tracking down MK7 GTI...

      Out of curiosity, have you all ever turned down a warranty claim on an injector based on a DP? Also, had they not covered it, what's the cost for replacing an injector?

      Verdict: bad injector. They asked if it was tuned, even though they couldn't find evidence in the ECU. Covered under warranty.

      Hadn't considered that. Thanks for the input. I hope VW doesn't try to blame the intake and DP. Can't see how they could.

      *sigh*

      Car lost power and ran real rough just as the dash lit up on the highway. Pulled the codes while waiting for a tow. Probably a bad coil. Towed to dealer. My search here didn't turn up...
