      Put a pair of vise grips on the torx bit. Hopefully once you loosen it you can turn it by hand. Mine turns by hand once loosened. I've got a 86 8v GTI.

      Your dpr setting is correct for 8v (10ma stock). You can set it to 9 bouncing of 8ma for a little performance boost. And thankfully nbvwfan chimed in, he knows all the technical stuff (not me).
