My car is back in the shop again - I ahve had the thing at home for only about a week total in the last 2 months and even then some before that.
Anyway, my car is giving the VAG an error that it is loosing boost. The tech says that despite what the VAG says the car is boosting normally. During one check they ran 20lbs. of boost! Now, I am no expert but I thought like 13-14 was pushing it!
Anyway, I hope they get it fixed. The good thing is they have not been charging me for most of my visits. As a sidenote I am convinced my car is a lemon.

Re: 20lbs. Of Boost! (LhW)

19lb of boost is fairly common on chipped K03's. I've run as high as 23 on my current setup...but we're talking peak boost in both cases, not running that much all the way to 6000+rpm's.
