    MKVII Austins on MKV...

    Didn't see much about this from a quick web search...plenty of Austins on MKVIs but not MKVs. What do y'all think? Honestly, I really like the look. In fact I like the Austins more on the MKV than the MKVII. Then again I've always liked the OEM+ look.

    Stem seals with head on

    Hey all, Ive managed to trace some vacuum smoke I've been having down to bad stem seals. Now that the weather around my area is finally starting to get cooled down, I'm opting to replace the seals in the next few weeks. Now obviously when removing the valve keepers there will be nothing...

    How are your motors holding up to high mileage?

    I just want to start by saying I'm floored that I just did a compression test on my '06 FSI motor with 165K miles on it, with all the mods you see in my signature since 110K, and I came out with... 190/180/185/190 I was so blown away to see so little lost in so many miles that I did it again...

    Good Machine Shops in MD/VA/PA area?

    Hello all, Anyone know of a good machine shop in the Maryland, southern PA, northern VA area? Looking to get my crank polished and block inspected, bored, and cleaned up. So many of the shops seem to specialize in "'Murican Vee Eight Modurs" and I'm afraid that they would likely look down on...

    K04 gas mileage

    Just wondering what other folks are getting. With the APR tune, I seem to be getting about 30 average on stock tune but only about 20 on 93 program. Hypermiling on the highway in 93 and I can only squeeze about 25mpg, while in stock I've seen as high as 36. This combined with sooty exhaust...

    Golf R PCV on a GTI FSI?

    Looked all around and haven't seen anything on this... So we all know the MKVI Golf R used an upgraded version of the FSI motor many of us have in our MKV GTIs. Now, one of the biggest problems we run into when upgrading our performance, especially to K04 and beyond, is that the stock PCV...
