      Thanks. I haven't been pushing that hard to sell it because most of my time since I put it up for sale has been acquiring another daily. If it sits long enough I will have the original turbo put on...

      Video will be up shortly walking thru the car.

      As for the turbo I can't access full damage because its on the car but it started with the howling sound which is indicative of the thrust bearing...

      Wait 10k miles to sort it out. By then anything major that's going to turn up will probably turn up an you'll probably be close to warranty expiration anyway. No way you should do it at 1000 miles....

      If you were so worried about a simple stage 1 flash that you "knew this would happen" you are too paranoid to modify anyway. If it happened to me I'd think " this is the last thing I'd thought would...

      Any significant fuel supply or inability to meet a/f ratio would be met with instant limp mode. Sounds like typical Intake/MAF/APR tune issue to me...with the understanding that no "issue" has...

      Re: Frankenturbo

      Trust me if you NEED drive-ability a F23T SPECIFIC tune is the LAST thing you want to skip. The savings is not having to upgrade injectors and modification free direct fit. Just don't say you weren't...

      As for poor starts when is the last time you changed your fuel filter? I'd try lowering the spark plug gap some too for misfires.

      No DSG here (that was the first question they asked so I assume they do it differently for DSG). MAF function retained. Pretty sure GTRaider on Golf V forum has DSG. I won't have my car until next...

      I see this has turned into talk about anything/everything but the actual Frankenturbo and software solutions that exist. Want a generalized k04 hybrid discussion comparing Franken/GTTx/Lobos start a...

      switching from 5k to 10k mile oil change intervals will make no difference. Take it from a MKV FSI guy wih 126k miles. I did the first 60k at 5k miles (while under factory powertrain warranty) and...

      The economical thing to do would be fix it and drive it for another 100k miles. If the car is paid off either fix it and sell it or keep it

      What does that have to do with the time of day? That's been known for about 5yrs but would be even more evident that GIAC didn't expressly choose RS4 injectors (S3's provide adequate fueling for what...

      Has that been because of the turbo or aggressive tuning? NJDubber is the only one I'm aware of who pushed a verified 350ish whp from the F23T. Most k04 guys have off the shelf tuning with inability...
