    Hey everyone this is my first post on here and it’s not a fun one to make. Last week I was attempting to install a Fluidampr crank pulley on my 2017 GTI and was having a hell of a time getting the crank bolt off while holding the counter hold tool steady on my original pulley.

    I am having a very strange issue. The initial issue was that I had a broken timing chain guide. I took the engine out and replaced both timing chains, both tensioners, all the guides, and the oil pump sprocket. After reassembly, I now have no oil pressure. (Also, worthy of note, I got a code...
