    What's your timing chain stretch results...MB093

    This is the BPY - FSI engine. I put off replacing my timing chain and tensioner this year due to already having much else to do. So I decided to just drive it easy for another year and take care of it next year. Although, I may go two more years because I do need another K04 next year (it's...

    Searching for part number for 2.0t FSI BPY K03 turbo muffler o-ring

    Not for me, but trying to find for someone else. I see part number WHT 006 482 and Urotuning and ECS sites say this fits all MKV 2.0t. But then, on ECS's site, under fitment it says "Golf V_ All_2.0T", when I use the "Does this fit my vehicle" it will say only fits TSI. Someone else says this is...

    GIAC High Output K04 file....

    So, back in 2011 I got the High Output(HO) K04 file loaded. In 2013 to 2015 I ran the DriverMotorsport K04+ file. From 2015 to 2016 the supposed HO K04 file was loaded again but it didn't feel the same. I finally did more research and found the two files loaded last were not the HO K04 file. So...

    GIAC site now says K04 power is 280 HP and 285 lb*ft at the engine???

    This (in the title) confuses me...see stage 3 K04; https://www.giacusa.com/supported_products.php?make=vw&model_id_1=202&engine=2.0 Turbo FSI Because years ago mine averaged more than that at the wheels on the dyno. My mass air of 280 g/s figures to be 345 HP at the engine these days. So, APR...

    Has anyone purchased a Borg Warner K04 rather than Genuine VW K04?

    I have an original S3 K04 from back in 2010. It has 96k miles on it and someone recently told me they were seeing some smoke when I took off from stops when they were following me. I rebuilt the engine and head near 35k miles ago and I suspect this new sign of smoke may be the worn K04. ECS has...

    Testing the N80 I just removed.

    This is just a "show what I found", so here's the N80 I replaced this morning. I tested the new N80 before installing it and it held vacuum 100%. Curious what might happen to the fuel trims. My LTFT (partial/off idle) is usually at 5% to 7%. I will data log it soon so to see if this changes...

    Thinking of selling my Torqbyte PM3...what would be a fair price to ask?

    I find it not needed for a non-custom tune having gone from Driver Motorsport back to my original GIAC K04 H.O. tune. A PM3 is still under the control of the oem pump controller/PWM and given a LPFP upgrade makes 6.6 bar/95psi with just 11.4 to 12.8 amps there's no need for additional amps...

    LPFP drop-in pump replacement...decision time. DW65v vs HFP-A35HV by Quantum.

    Interesting to me, because today I have found test results for the DW65v and for another drop-in pump, HFP-A35HV sold by Quantum. Both were tested by RC Engineering. Results show the DW65v takes more amps to produce less volume both initially at 35 psi within a system and when pressures increase...

    Seeking help for stumbling at start-up

    OK, I know one cause for stumbling when starting the engine can be fuel leaked from the injectors and sits in the combustion chambers and this excess of fuel is what will cause stumbling at start-up. This is only happening when the car has sat for some time. So, after giving it some thought, I...
