      Replaced one as it had a good amount of play, but no change. Other ones still seem tight. I don't remember ever seeing that bracket though, and I know the previous owner did stuff to this car. I'm...

      Thank you. I'll check this weekend and see if mine is missing. I kept having leaks at the manifold to turbo connection; ended up safety wiring the bolts and it seems to have solved that. Now there's...

      Turbo support bracket?

      Can anyone get a good picture of where this bracket is? I can't seem to find one in my 2003 Jetta 1.8t, and am curious if its the cause of my recurring exhaust leak. Everything I Google refers to the...

      Nice, first time I've heard of this. Last I checked it was a bike meet

      Yeh, mk4. 2003 Jetta Wolfsburg. Nothing special, daily driver that gets way to many miles and not nearly enough love :-P. Wasn't aware of a meet, when and where?

      Re: Wastegate Actuator Spring Mod

      I unhooked the n72 valve and my car was running 5psi, so that's where the wastegate was opening. With the single spring I have on there (different than the home depot setup, BTW) it moved to 8psi. 2...

      Re: Wastegate Actuator Spring Mod

      True, but that's also how you build boost. If you're running stock boost levels, this mod isn't for you. When you start pushing boost to the point that the wastegate is blowing open, adding a spring...

      Re: Wastegate Actuator Spring Mod

      I haven't checked EGTs, and don't have any means to. But, by allowing the wastegate to remain closed longer while trying to build boost, if anything it should be lowering EGTs as the turbo has to...

      Re: FT/FS: st coilovers

      Mine are $1500 coilovers. Was wondering if you wanted some nicer, stiffer, or what? These are the stiffest on the market, but my car isn't a track car :-\

      Re: New Solenoids fixed it!

      New problem, and I'm not sure if it's related or not.

      My usual drive is a 75 mile round trip, going 45-65mph. The other day I got a little over that speed (70mph), and my esp light came on....
