PM'd re: the FMIC.
So the tech clarified that the oil in the intercooler was totally consistent with normal blow-by, no turbo issues at all. However there was a small crack in the intake plastic end-cap and there was...
Spoke with the service manager and he is going to follow up with the tech on Monday. He couldn't offer much more than I had except that it sounded as if some oil was in the intercooler. So I asked...
I kept asking her the same thing..."you sure he said intercooler??"
I'm going to call them on Monday.
Long story short, wife took the R in for 20k service this afternoon. Techs came out and told her it had a blown intercooler. This is a stage 1+ APR tune, APR HPFP, and Evo intake. Techs said tune...
I am not sure if I qualify as an expert but I did learn how to use the search function today... :what:
The links below should answer your question. :thumbup:
Looks like a Nik Brewer Uber-Stealth. Website says the box is $225-$275 w/ no audio components. I agree, look like the right way to go.
Wow, thats a big improvement, but I bet it was due to the weight savings you got by moving from pants to skirts.........;)
My question is where is the Golf-RS teaser??
:rolleyes: 30 sec google search: Here
That disc wouldn't fit an R and you would likely need a release bearing that fits it too....but there you go.
Hmmmm..same bolt pattern, same teeth pattern, same yellow springs, even the same green paint blotches on the top of those 3 top edge retainer-type bolts. Thats quite a coincidence.
You sure the options you describe would be "much cheaper" while holding more power? The OEM TT-RS clutch kits with pp, disc, etc are about $500 or you could go with the Sachs PCS pressure plate by...
Curious if the TT-RS pressure plate would be a option to install on the R?
I found this post on another forum: http://www.ttforum.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=255414
Any chance this could be a modified RS clutch? I'm curious if the RSR moniker actually points to the OEM source.
The tooth pattern on the pp does look awfully similar to the RS4 clutch which is...
The lights on the dash are completely normal. Same thing happened to mine after a few pulls on a Dyno-Dynamics "rolling road" machine too. :thumbup:
I'll take some blame here. I should have included some intertoobz lessons with the initial test drive. :facepalm:
But on the brightside, the Lamin-X should already be in the mail so that we...
Thats the answer that I like to hear!!!:laugh:
Good move. :thumbup::thumbup:
Dutch..Were you riding back up 93N late Sunday afternoon? I was in a CSG R 4dr w/ my wife driving and we followed a slammed RB 2dr back into the city. I told her that it looked like a car on...
Any plans on modding it? I am always interested to see the time-delta between purchase and tuning. :D
Congrats on the purchase. :thumbup:
Slammed 2dr RB :R on 93N yesterday late afternoon. From pics I have seen in the forum, my guess is that it was Dutch coming back from Dustoff. Whoever it was, the exhaust note on that ride was sick...
