    Remote start in a 6MT?

    Thanks for that link! Does the loader still work? Saw your last post about “lite” accts. If so, I’d be all over this. Found a place to do it, but I’d much rather do this myself than pay someone to butcher wiring everywhere.

    Failed cam follower, no VCDS codes?

    Replaced my friends cam follower Cam didn’t look gouged too bad. No CEL, no fuel related codes. I would think there would be codes if the HPFP was damaged? Car dies when dropping to idle after a pull. Replaced thrust sensor, n80. Checking DV tomorrow. Car idles rougher when dip stick is...

    Speaking of used PCVs, I replaced mine last year. Swapped it for a catch can a few months ago. Going back to PCV for the winter. Should I buy a new one, or reuse the old one? Only a few months of use, but I already had to replace the rear main seal. Definitely want to avoid that again.
