Most I have seen and I used myself was non syn oil and run through the rev range to get good heat to seat the rings properly. Limiting the revs may keep you from getting a good seal. A hundred miles later, change the oil still with non syn again for 500 miles then back to full syn. There is also break in oils you can try.
Just did front control arms on the BMW. First side took hours then second about 30 minutes. Nightmare.
While I did that AAA picked my car up and now I'm going to see it at Force Fed. Intercooler piping should be getting done or at least started today. I'm sure there will be photos to follow.

Last year with a small port head and stock intake manifold:
I'm suspecting the large port head & intake manifold will make spool a little quicker. I'm pretty sure the boost curve is similar to a 3076R... If you're running a vband setup just remember that they are two different size vbands.
I'll definitely update about the Eurodyne WB file this week. I can assure you that the issues were on my end not his. My post on the first page digging into the differences between NB vs. WB and CAN-BUS vs. K line should all be ignored. All TT's WB or NB had both a CAN-BUS communication system and a K-line diagnostic system.
The CB system connects ECU/ABS/Haldex. The difference between NB and WB was CB also communicates with the cluster and radio on WB, which is probably just for the information readout.
The K-line also connects all those devices and more on both NB & WB for diagnostic purposes and also flash purposes.

You guys like the new wheel and tire setup?

Not motor related but:
Tonight modified a Belkin Bluetooth receiver made for home AC outlets to work off an iPod charger. The EQ I have has an A/B switch so I'll have iPod direct input and charging then Bluetooth wireless audio from any device.
It just so happens that the Belkin is 5v/180mA so it works perfectly with an iPod charger. I'll hardwire the charger hidden behind the dash. The Belkin has a minijack output so I'll just run a minijack to RCA Cable.
We can swap your CD changer for it then if you don't mind sacrificing that.
ECU should be in today. I think that Ed finished up the piping yesterday. Shooting to turn the motor over for the first time Thursday or possibly Friday at my house if you're around- I'll let ya know when.
