      Update

      I ended up pulling my GFB DV+ off. It worked well with the stock turbo, but on the f23t it caused a lot of off throttle compressor surge. I tried removing the secondary spring to reduce the...

      I battled rev hang on my Gli since I've owned it. I've even considered converting it to throttle cable to get rid of it.

      I have done many timing chain jobs on tsi engines. I personally remove that screen and throw it away on every cam bridge, even brand new ones. As long as the check ball was still there, it's ok.

      Sounds like a bad clutch. Every gear can feel like neutral, wired noises can happen.

      I think they're great. There are a few common problems I see with them but the warranty extension makes them well worth buying. FYI, I've been told by customers the mpg and power goes down a bit...

      Yeah, use the fill plug to fill it. That person might have been referring to the automatic or dsg fill procedure.
      Also, if you have grinding going into reverse, that is probably clutch issues.

      eBay turbo=Wow!

      I have a 2012 Gli 6 speed. I've been at stage 2 Eurodyne for quite some time now and got sick of the tiny IHI/k03 turbo.

      It sounds like carbon on the intake valves. It will cause misfires and rough idle on start up because the carbon is hard. As it gets warmer, it will run better because the carbon softens up.

      Google the rotor diameter on both cars. If they're the same, they will probably fit.
