    I used my OBDll reader to see what ECU my 2009.5 Jetta GLI had to see if a stage 2 tune could be done and the ECU says it’s an 2.0l_R4/4V_TFSI. I checked the engine and it’s definitely a gen1 EA888 TSI. I didn’t think you could use the TFSI ECU with the TSI, Am I missing something?

    Greetings all! I recently replaced the radiator on my MK1 TT. I figured I’d post this here since it’s the same radiator. After getting the old, leaky radiator out of the car, I compared it with the new one and was surprised at just how different the core designs were! Here are some pictures to...

  12. Golf/GTI VI
    I have a mk6 gti, 119000 miles. I changed my spark plugs and coil packs and the shaking and clicking continues. It’s not a engine knock, the serpentine belt wobbles when idling but I just can’t see it as the only thing causing my car to shake how it does. Another theory is my motor mounts. And...

    My battery light is flickering when I accelerate or if I sit still and press my gas pedal. I noticed a drop in acceleration speed as well. I've had the alternator tested at AutoZone and they said it was good, same for the battery. I checked connections and they're all tight. I've also changed my...

    So my fans do not work at all and my a/c doesnt either. I have checked all the fuses and ran a few tests. I checked the fan radiator temp sensor by jumping it and the large fan will come on with both speeds working, but the small one doesnt. I then checked both fans by themselves again by...
  18. CC
    Hi, I had both my headlights go out on my CC and I ears that if that happens then my ballast could be broken, I was going to replace them bulbs with LED bulbs from Lasfit and I just wanted to know if the LED lights will work with a broken ballast?
