  1. 1.8 TSI (EA888 Gen 3) Engine Forum
    Hello I've recently had a stalling issue on my automatic 1.8 tsi golf. I have a racechip tuner installed with a brand new k and n air filter. I was stopped in a parking lot idling for about a min and my rps bounced, went back to normal, and then stalled to 0. I started my car and it drove fine...

    Hello there, I have a strong feeling I'm gonna get violently attacked for even saying the words "blow" "off" and "valve" in that order, but has anyone installed a CTS turbo BOV onto their 3rd gen 1.8? I just got the BOV and I've heard so many different things about installs and I was just...

    Hey. I got a 2015 jetta se (1.8t) would the transmission be able to handle stage 2? I have stage 1 already and it's done fine so far but what about stage 2, I dont thing it add alot of hps but it does add a bit of torque with a couple engine modifications (such as down pipe and intercooler)...
  5. Jetta/GLI VI
    Hi everyone, I have a 2014 Jetta 1.8TSI which seems to have some AC issues. The air conditioner blows cold air but is very noisy and seems to pull an excessive amount of power when engaged. The amount of power it pulls basically forces me to roast my clutch in order to get moving without...

    Hey guys this may be a stupid idea but i’m thinking about big turboing my mk6 1.8t. It’s a 5 speed currently FBO, stage 3 clutch, etc. My question is what can this engine reliably handle before falling apart/what parts need to be upgraded? Might just be a waste of money and a GLI would be a...

    Hey guys, I’m looking to try and squeeze some performance out of my 1.8tsi. I know APR has the stage 1 and was wondering if I would experience any slippage at that hp. I also wanted to know if 300hp is realistic in these things and how I can achieve that. Thanks guys!

    Hey guys I live in the north east Georgia region and I finally bought a 3 in downpipe for my Jetta and when I enquired about the APR stage 2 upgrade, I was sadly informed that the software was discontinued due to emissions failings. Where I live we do not have to pass emissions. But due to the...
