      I spent a lot of time on this, I hope it will be helpful. This is the guide I put together to be used in conjunction with a kit I put together. I did the install on both a AWP and AWD motor. There are slight variations in the vac lines, but the instructions indicate which motor is in the picture. If I am missing anything, please let me know.

      Engine codes this write up has worked on (if you have a engine not listed and this has worked for you, let me know and I will add it to the list):

      AWP
      AWD
      AUQ
      AWW
      AWV
      AWM


      I will make you a kit if you are interested. PM me for details.
      https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...2#post64471922

      For those who want to piece the kit together, here is what I used:

      - Integrated Engineering Block Plate
      - 4 10w 330OHM Resistors
      - 8 feet of 3/4" Hose
      - 4 feet of 1/2" Hose
      - 4 feet of 5/32" vac line
      - 2 3/4" 90 degree PCV Elbows
      - 1 3/4" PCV "T"
      - 12 Medium Hose Clamps
      - 6 Small Hose Clamps
      - 1 Pack of Assorted Small Vacuum Caps
      - 1 Pack of Large Assorted Vacuum Caps
      - 1 Homebrew Catch Can
      - G12 Coolant


      Optional (While your in there) Parts:

      - Coolant neck: Automatic Transmissions: 06A 121 133 AH Manual Transmissions: 06A 121 132 AP
      - Newsouth Performance Power Gasket, or stock intake manifold gasket
      *Now is also a REALLY good time to install a oil pressure sender using the port on top of the filter housing to use an aftermarket gauge.


      Tools Needed:

      - Gloves
      - Flathead Screwdriver
      - Set of allen wrenches, or allen bits for your socket wrench (5mm, 5.5mm, 8mm, some other may be needed)
      - Socket Set (8mm, 10mm, some others may be needed)
      - Cutters
      - Soldering Iron
      - Solder
      - Electrical Tape
      - Zip Ties
      - Jack and a Jack Stand (to be safe)

      **Disclaimer** - I am not responsible for any damage done to the vehicle or yourself by performing this modification. I am simply collecting all the items needed and providing them to you as a convenience. Most states require the emissions systems on your vehicle and removing them could cause your car to violate your state's emissions laws. That being said:

      GOOD LUCK!!

      Without proper programming, you most likely wont be able to pass. I'm not sure which of the ECU programmers offer that.

      Can I remove the blue balls without any reprocussion? I'm been trying to remove useless junk in my engine bay and i already have capped off the one on the valve cover. (Doing this without removing evap)

      The blue balls are hidden and weigh nothing. IIRC they are required for the EVAP to function properly and not throw codes (since you want to keep the EVAP). You really would only want to remove them if you were doing this entire delete.

      awesome write-up; clears up alot of the ?s ppl had with the other write-ups. this needs to be stickied. and PLS try to keep your pics hosted so they dont disappear from this write-up, since it's pic-based.

      well done x12 for u.

      for a programmer that cancels the emissions CELs, eurodyne maestro you can delete them yourself so they never pop up again, and I know APR will do it if your Stage 3+ but thats it.

      If anyone finds a tuner that will do it for them let us know!


      Amazing DIY.

      Eurodyne Maestro 7 is $899.99 Although for what you can do with it, it seems worth it.

      If you are talking about this piece, it stays. Only other "stock" piece that remains is the Brake booster check valve.

      Great write up!

      Words cannot describe..
      Best DIY, ever?

      Thank you so much for putting down the effort to get this done and help others. If I do this sometime soon, I'm going to pay you for the kit (which I assume is slightly marked up?) to reward you.

      One thing though, I was hoping there would be some kind of panoramic shot of the engine bay from above to show the difference in the completed product.

      Yes the kits are slightly marked up, but not by a whole lot. I have 2 left of the first batch and may do more if people want them. I will get the shot for you this weekend.

      Depends, if you dont have software to delete the CAT, you will prob get one for that, and you may or may not get the one for improper flow for the EVAP flow regulator.

      Excellent! Yeah, if you find yourself bored and with a camera I'd love to see the shot sometime. Thanks again for the thorough, idiot proof write-up.
