It's an 04 AWP 1.8T, only mods are downpipe, intake, DV, vacuum deletes, and tune (I had no issues for a while with all of these).

  3. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hey all, so I have a 2003 Mk4 GTI 1.8t with a dw65 fuel pump. The problem I'm having is there is no fuel being sent during crank.

  8. Golf V & Jetta V
    I have a question about RON/ROZ octane rating. Is RON same as ROZ, because this is how the fuel label looks on my Golf MK5. Should I only use 98 RON fuel or can I use 95 RON or is that 95 ROZ? That is what I don't understand, are those two the same or not? Thanks in advance!

    Hey all, Sorry this is going to be long, but I'm uncertain if replacing a couple items (N80, charcoal canister) could resolve this (which I'm going to order and try), but I would like some more knowledge on the problem as well as something I can't identify. Backstory: In Oct 2020 I purchased a...
