      is the valve older? if so, has it been maintained / IE lubricated? what's your vacuum at idle?

      I used a 007 in my old setup with a green spring and one spacer. No probs @ 18 psi on a PTE 6262...

      reliability problems? catching on fire? wtf?

      I had a 3.2 VR6 2004 Touareg - bought it used in '07, let it go in '11.

      Not a single issue. I kept up on maintenance. Sold the car problem free.

      sticky clutch pedal and gearbox issue

      Slave is located inside the bell housing. 3 bolts and it's out.

      Remember to bench bleed the new cylinder before installing!

      could be:

      cam position sensor faulty / intermittent
      or actual timing issue (stretched chains, failing or failed guides, tensioners giving up)

      I had the same code, same symptoms, and tried many...

    10. Doing Timing Chains Marks Are Slightly Off

    12. Sticky: **USRT: Next Level Fuel Pump Solutions...The Genesis II**

      Top end boost probably around 25psi, don't know if I'll need to go all the way up there tho. 18-19 psi was ~500 hp, but that dyno pull was lifted off early at 5k RPM with a 272 cam.

      700 to the...

      I like USRT, everything I've grabbed from you guys has been superb. That's why I was looking forward to the pump. VW parts made by VW guys, that's what I like. I also have a lot of confidence in...

    16. Sticky: **USRT: Next Level Fuel Pump Solutions...The Genesis II**

      Boo. From the flow charts it looks like your pump was much stronger, though?

      So even with a DW pump on my build Id still need a surge tank, which would defeat the goal to make room in the trunk...
    17. Suspect Neighbors Are Dealing Drugs: What to Do?

      Omg. Classic case why people should mind their own business.

      Turbo size for 400hp vr6

      T3 @ .83 will still roast tires. You'd easily be able to burn through the first 3 gears. Even a .9x will spin, just a bit less. I'd go with a 1.0x housing if going t3, t4 @ .8x (based on your post)....
