    1. Thanks for the update, too bad those bushings...

      Thanks for the update, too bad those bushings didn't hold up. A couple of questions for you...

      1) Do you have a link to a build thread that you posted? I searched, but couldn't find one...
      2) Who...

      Which wheel did you test fit? The 8.5 has "FACE 1" which is going to be on the "flat" side, while the 9.5 has "FACE 2" which is going to be more concave. There could be a difference in brake...
    3. Sounds like the wheels will be good in the front,...

      Sounds like the wheels will be good in the front, maybe minor rubbing of the rears on the inside of the fender (grind down tab). I can't speak to front brake clearance, as that depends upon the...

      Well, you pulled in at least one person from the TT Mk2 forum... I went through a similar situation with building up a Jeep for serious off roading/rock crawling about 10 years ago. It had my Jeep...

      Is GIAC going to release any dyno results of their LO500P tune? What would it take to convince you to take your car to an AWD dyno and post the full results? Who knows, maybe we can find a few people...
    6. How old was the accessory drive belt? That bolt...

      How old was the accessory drive belt? That bolt doesn't look new, but I can't say that it is the factory bolt or not. I would guess that the belt is shifted over a bit and that a new one should run...
    7. Please let us know what you find out. It is a...

      Please let us know what you find out. It is a small community of TT-RS owners, so sharing information can be very important for other owners who run into a similar situation/fault.

      Thank you!
    8. I have to agree with cipsony on this one. First...

      I have to agree with cipsony on this one. First of all, a $9k+ bill to replace something that you had a short time before (i.e. a running TT-RS engine) is not fun. As a fellow TT-RS owner, I do have...

      A slave cylinder is no more than $100, so why not replace when putting in a new clutch?

      That clutch didn't just "wear out" from normal usage... Are you sure that it never slipped before it went...
    10. Sounds like the throttle body has a fault or the...

      Sounds like the throttle body has a fault or the associated wiring. I would at least try unhooking the battery for a while, unplugging the connections at the throttle body, reseating the throttle...
    11. Thanks for the information. Sounds like...

      Thanks for the information.

      Sounds like starting with the dog bone and torque mounts would provide a good starting point... I can always add the other mounts, if I decide that a more solid...
    12. Hi, I actually have your TT-RS intercooler kit,...

      Hi, I actually have your TT-RS intercooler kit, but haven't had a chance to install yet...

      Did you look at putting holes in the crash bar to help avoid the airflow blockage?

      Don't get me...

      I haven't installed a hitch, but the TT's haven't changed much since the mk2 was released. I would think that only exhaust routing would cause a hitch to fit one year and not the next. There is also...

      How does the TT-RS fuel pump compare to this DW unit?

      With a Stage 2+ TT-RS, primarily street driven, with typical drivetrain movement when winding out the engine, is your Density Line Dog Bone Mount + upgraded Dog Bone enough to tame excessive...

      VWR intake was supposed to be redesigned earlier this year, but not sure if anyone has posted up pictures of the revised kit.

      E46 M3's have the same reputation as well. High rev'ing I6 engine, but doesn't take kindly to being spun to 10k plus on a bad shift. Must again be the transmission shifting action like the S2k, as...

      Thanks for the detailed reply URHank. Do you have a recommendation on oil for the OEM TT-RS 2.5L engine to minimize chances of rod bearing problems? I am a bit surprised by your comment about 0...

      Do any of the shops or vendors on this forum know anything about there being that many TT-RS engine problems?

      The 2.5L TFSI engine isn't new at this point, considering how long they have been sold...
    20. Why don't you have NGP fix the bearing problem?...

      Why don't you have NGP fix the bearing problem? Throw in some uprated parts while you have the engine apart. The TT-RS is extensively tracked and I haven't heard of any oil pressure problems on high...
