      We had 4 or 5 cans of this stuff in the garage already and figured what the hell Id go ahead and use it.
      Figure it cant hurt and it might just keep temps down a teeny bit

      THIS^^^ Kreiger I think you and I are sharing brainwaves or something bro, we both read and respond to the same posts all the time. LOL. How's you car doing? just had the dealer replace my PCV valve and they noticed my BSH Throttle Pipe and no big deal, but they kep t asking what the nylon tube coming from the (w/m)pump is. My response is to just ask another stupid question, then the GM of the dealer came to me( I used to work there, so its all good) and asked me what it was. Well apparently I forgot to turn off my w/m and one of the techs was talking to the service advisor as to howmy car was soo much faster than most lightly modded GTI's and the GM wanted to know how he cold tune his GTI to be the same. Great dealership family owned with an enthusiast for a General Manager= Most mod friendly dealer around(at least for me). This was all started cuz they saw this and drove the car.



      and this is what I like to call "Kill Mode"



      Here is a pic of of where I mounted my controller.

      I have my controller mounted in the exact same spot

      Where did you get that button for your setup?
      I have been thinking about have a 2 stage system where the direct port injection will always be on but I can press a button and spray in the TB pipe for some extra cooling benefits as well

      Got the button from the dealership for $26.00 and $3.00 for the male connector to wire it up.

      If you want to do the 2 stage then here is how I would set it up. Have a main line run into a w/m distibution manifold that has at least 5 outlet ports. Run four lines to your intake mani for the direct port. Run a fifth line to a solenoid block and then run a line out of the solenoid to the TB pipe. Hook a switch up to the solenoid and you can trigger it whenever you want while have the direct port working all the time. I suggest putting a switch on the controller's power line as well so you can turn it off, if you haven't already.

      car is fantastic and ive been saving gobs of money on gas... been getting regular and saving like 60 cents a gallon... and i refill every other day now. lmao work is so damn far away!!!

      If i could hit my controller any better, I would, but im really torn between keeping this expensive car going with all of the known issues or going into a nice 240sx project and drop in a skyline motor and make crazy reliable power. gotten some CRAZY offers too...

      anyways, my controller is mounted on my steering column and stares me in the face... I LOOOVVVEEE watching those lights pop on, wait a second for the timing to advance like crazy and BAM she pulls harder than i have ever seen lately, especially with 70 degree days finally!

      if i do sell the car, the WM and boost gauge are totally coming with me.

      I figured I would provide an update on what I think is my problem behind dialing in my WMI. I know I said I was going to forget it but I can't quit now as I am determined to get this thing running right.

      Looks like my fuel pump is taking a ****. Explains my timing issues. I'll be in stock mode until I can replace the pump. Just when the weather is getting cold too,

      i knew the MKVI would have some fueling issues too... even if it is just a weak pump over time.

      I think I've decided Im going to keep this car for at least a bit longer, go BT and get her looking pretty and keep her as a nice show car and fun car and later on go buy a POS JDM or even just a shell and build that sucker from the ground up for either show or the track.

      Technically I'm an MKV w/ a TSI. Not sure if there is a difference in specified fuel rail with the MKVI.

      That fuel pressure looks fine.. its right around what its requesting.. if it was 20-30 bar below in the midrange or something, then yeah you'd have an issue. Your pump is fine. Look at some FSI logs of the fuel pressure, there's always a huge dip somewhere

      Well darn, I thought I was on to something. Glad to know that the pump isn't failing though but concerned with my timing pull on the 93 file with no meth. It may just be bad gas though.

      Virtual - You wouldn't happen to have the TSI intake mani part # do you? I may be replacing it soon but out of warranty so I might not be covered. Nice video on youtube BTW. Stumbled on it while looking for the part.

      Thanks 05jettagli. Keffer has it listed for MSRP on their website @ $208.00 but I found it on genuinevwparts.com for $60 of MSRP @ $149.76. Should I call and speak with Paul?

      I just ordered all my goodies for my direct port injection setup.

      Got all my parts from Devils own.
      Im going with four DO.75 nozzles for octane boost and a DO1 nozzle to go in the TB pipe for cooling

      So its time for me to start installing the nozzles for the direct port setup and Ive hit a small roadblock (due to poor planning).
      Basically what the problem is that when I smoothed down the intake manifold I had to cut out the mounting points for a hard line that passes right over the intake manifold.
      pic for reference (yeah yeah the motor looks all stock, but I took the pic shortly after I bought my car lol):


      In the pic look at the shiny hard line that passes right over the intake manifold.

      Now here are the options that I have come up with.

      1) I can remove the entire hard line section and replace it with a flexible line, either braided stainles or a durable more flexible line like Earl's Performance Pro Lite hose:

      If I were to use the Pro Lite hose I could cut the stock hoses back and convert it over to use this type of line exclusively for a cleaner look, plus then I could reroute the line to get it out of the way.

      2) I havent tested to see how much "give" is in the current line but I could move the hard line and secure it to another mounting location via a custom bracket or a folding clasp of some sort.

      3) Get a custom hardline bent to replace the stock piece that would use a different mounting point.

      What do you guys think?
      Im leaning towards using the Pro Lite hose, but im worried about removing the hard line. My concern is why did VW use a hardline at that specific point instead of keeping the rubber hose all the way through?

      After doing some research the hardline appears to be used for the EVAP system so it shouldnt matter if I use a non hardline.
      Its looking like I will relocate the hose under the Intake Manifold then
