      I swear my TSI gets better gas milage.. my FSI always said about 300 miles left on a fillup, and dropped to 100 left by 1/2 a tank. My TSI on the other hand still says 160 left at a half tank marker.. At this very moment i am aimed for 390 miles on the tank if it continues as it has been.

      im stock so far, but have something hidden to activate later.

      My MFD usually says around 450-460 when I fill up

      But I just got APR's Stage 1 today...so I think that number might change

      Has anyone noticed how the VW's website is giving the wrong compression ratio for the 2009 model?

      "As anyone who has ever tinkered with an old BMW engine or looked out on to the wing of a jet can attest, pure response to engineering requirements can sometimes deliver just as much pleasure as a more intentionally aesthetic design process."

      NOTE TO CANADIANS: THERE IS NO LONGER THE "3 YEAR-36,000 MILE (3yr-60K Km) CARE-FREE MAINTENANCE PLAN" IN OUR COUNTRY. SAD TO SAY!

      There are some MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAJOR diffs. btwn VW.ca and VW.com.

      Do NOT assume that just because Americans are offered certain plans and options that we are "entitled" to the same.

      Eg: The Plan I just mentioned....and paint options.

      I've heard that excuse before. Never fall for it. To do so, only confirms to the salesman that yer a sucka! Tell HIM...that he had better know his **** before he starts flogging off cars he's still not familiar with.

      And push your case.

      You will win.

      Just a thought on how to tell the difference from CCTA and CBFA...

      My car which is an '09 TSI was made in 9/08... and doesn't have that hose sticking out, and also has a sticker near the hood latch that says ULEV... so i think that the cars made sometime after mine are the CBFA PZEV...

      also i have been having some issues regarding flex pipe vibration which was associated with 06-08 models, my problems were dismissed by the dealer saying "these were taken care of with the new engine" but since the CCTA uses the same DP i believe that that problem still exists.

      also, does anyone know what this extra hose infront of the stock intake does?

      it blows air on your catalytic converter during start up when your emissions are higher then normal. It does this of course to lower the emissions output.

      wait, in that picture is that hose pulled up or is that just where it always sits...

      because i have a hose that looks like that but it is connected to the box.

      also new 100% way to tell what engine you have.

      open the hood. look on the left side of the engine (as if you were looking at it) and there should be a sticker behind the noise pipe on the housing for the chain. CCT = CCTA and CBF = CBFA

      So how do you know if you have a 2008.5 or 2009...

      because my car is a 2009 but it was mad in 08.

      also i have a CCTA engine... is that bad?

      When people say 2008.5 we refer to a 2008 VW GTI with a TSI motor as the TSI motor was first introduced in the 2nd half of 2008. ALL 2009s have the TSI motor.

      The CCTA version isn't "bad" in many cases it will be better for you as you have more options for exhaust systems at the current moment.

      I just changed my own oil @ 15k miles and it was a snap following the DIY that was posted.
      I updated the FAQ to include the fact that the drain plug is a 19mm socket.
      I installed the ECS magnetic drain plug ($10) and it fit perfectly (uses 14mm socket).

      So I have to ask... if you take a stock BWA (say pre 2008.5 2.0TFSI engines) against these new engines on a standard robot to robot race are they the same or is the new engine stronger than the older engines?

      From what I can see is the mods are mostly CO2, and huge efficency improvements

      The changes on the TSI are more than just a few extra emissions things done to it.
      The TSI is a whole new engine.

      The TSI and FSI seem to be right about on par with each other despite the fact that the TSI has lower compression and a slightly smaller turbo.

      if everyone clicks under your name and *reports this post to moderater* that can be used to get threads stickied as well. It is not only for reporting bad threads *which I have never done I aint no snitch*

    31. 06-30-2009 01:28 PM #66
      Wow I knew about the compression ratio's but didn't know about the slightly smaller turbo - do you know what model it is - is it the same KKK K03 in the BWA?

      Also I hear the Tuners (I hope APR etc can pitch up here) say they can get so much more power out of the TSI engines than the BWA's- is that true if so why?

      Take a look at the APR website. If memory serves me right, they get 4 more horses out of Stage 1.

      I thought this might be a good place to ask, instead of making a new topic.

      Are we advised to run colder spark plugs once you get chipped, like the 1.8Ts? It is fairly well known that once you get the 1.8T chipped you should gap them smaller and get one heat range colder spark plugs. Is this the same for the TSI, and if so, what spark plugs should I look out for?

      Thanks!
