    APR K04 FSI vs TSI (muffler adapter size)

    So many months ago, I bought this kit so that I could finally say goodbye to the leaking adapter on the OEM pipe. Thing is, I bought a TSI APR K04 of some MK6 dude... I own a FSI. So it turns out the muffler end of the rubber pipe in the kit will not fit over the muffler adapter on the K04...

LH works fine, but even after enabling CH in vagcom and setting the time in MFD - it doesn't actually work. I have the standard on/off switch, that was the norm...
