I never tuned my mkv. I'm glad I didn't, I would have been in the same boat, no tires and no clutch.
Now, I just have no car lol
I opened up a Paypal claim for that FPR that I never received. Screw him I want my 15 bucks back. That can buy me a case of cheap beer.

factory clutch is rated at 300ft/lbs max. guess I should be lucky I got 5,500miles out of it. I'm going to go southbend stage II, good for 400ft/lbs, so even if on day I go K04, I'll be covered.
Even with my sh!ty clutch I destroyed my friends BMW 330i i'll put the video up when I get a chance
you might be able to get away with a clutch disk. my 1.8t was makin atleast 350hp and probably close to 350tq and all it had was a vr plate and an ACT 6 puck disk. never slipped for me, but idk how that will work for a 2.0t... but when i get a new clutch ill be getting a clutch masters or clutch net idk yet
Hey Brent, thanks for the offer to help but the distance between us makes it tough, and I think I'm going to attempt it @ my friends garage. based off this DIY, this should be a cake walk but as we all know it normally never is. I've also got a buddy who has all the tools at his garage (air ratchets and all) so I think I'm heading to the city for this one. based off this DIY it should only take a few hours.
Looks like I'm going to win my Paypal dispute against this guy to get my $15 back. Just shows you that post count here on Vortex doesn't mean everything. He kept giving me promises that he would send me an FPR, refund my money, etc etc and never came through. Paypal emailed him probably close to 10 times about the claim and he never responded.
I'm confused... why is this so cheap. Especially when you can flash it yourself....
EDIT: Wait wait... i figured it out.
