  1. Golf/GTI VII
    As the weather has been slowly reaching closer to zero lately I have been getting misfires driving while the car is still warming up, I always wait till the idle goes down after starting and never rev above 3500 rpm till the oil is up to temp, the misfires are only there at 25% throttle or less...
  2. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I bought a 2006 mk4 gti 1.8t about a week and a half ago. The car has an upgraded ko4s (hybrid I believe) turbo. I recently replaced the n75 valve because the car was surging which fixed that issue. The car was running fine until I noticed that the boost seemed to be cutting out at around 3-3.5k...

  7. The Volkswagen Lounge
    So I have an AE GTI and its built to hold 500hp with a 24lb boost tune. It has an F21 hybrid Frankenturbo. It started overboosting up to almost 30 lbs so I need to fix it immediately before damage is done. I’ll link a video I watched, and is it going to be as simple is that just going the...
  8. Passat (B7)
    Hello folks, Yesterday I began noticing a sound coming from my engine. It's the 2.5 liter engine. Whenever I accelerate, there is a noise, not really a typical whining sound of a bad belt, but not really a squealing sound either. It is more like a sound of metal rubbing together, but it doesn't...
