      I think this is the key to prolonging the transmission life with a K04. Over the past 40k miles, I haven't run into another issue since. However, my first testing/logging session following the...

      Figured as much. I thought I would just contract KW or H&R and see if they would be willing to sell the rear set-up by itself (although that might be asking a little much). If anything, I might...

      The K04 is running just fine. The transmission took a beating immediately following the upgrade and probably has some internal damage to the clutch packs. After upgrading the tranny cooler,...

      I tend to disagree with this statement. To my knowledge, I was the first member here to run an FSI K04 kit on the AISIN auto tranny and the tranny didn't hold up so well. Took all of one spirited...

      Can't reply directly to your question; however, I was recently DUSTED by a newer build Camaro SS which was to be expected, but man those boats can haul ***! My car = '06 slushbox K04. :beer:

      Just FYI regarding the TyrolSport kit, the bushings are interchangeable between both the FWD and 4-Mo front brakes. Maintenance on the 4-Mo is a little irritating due to the positioning of the hard...

      LOL...To the OP, I would stick with an OEM solution. Personnally, I loved the sound and look of the EJ Grenade; however, after using a relocated OEM set-up, the EJ grenade and the Forge SuperSize DV...

      Sounds like an injector, exhaust lifter or just carbon build-up on that valve. Personally, before spending money on a new PCV (OEM or replacment), test the validity of your current hardware with the...
    9. Thoughts on Replacing Rear Components of Coilover System?

      Figured I would bounce a couple of ideas off you guys since I've been pondering for the past few months. Are there any detriments to replacing half of the dampers or dampers/springs on a coilover...

      Please do a quick write up if you get a chance good sir! I'm seriously considering a DSG swap (hoping that I wouldn't have to replace the ECU) once I get another car in the garage. But a quick...

      Konsole,

      I'm assuming your issues are related to just hard shifting correct? If so, I would venture to guess that any accumulated damage (if any) is due to the amount of blockage. Obviously, if...
