update 10/22/2013: I have been running the contain rev.1, and now the new 1 micron contain rev.2 since february 2013. I'm pushing the limits of the CR140 design with 234WHP and 404WTQ, this is top quality insurance for the abuse I am putting the fuel system through. I've been running the pure-flo since before its release, with no issues with the kit. I'll be upgrading the factory CP4.1 fuel pump to a 4.2 to meet the demands of what my engine needs and continue to run both.

For anybody sitting on the fence, Andrew is the only one keeping me in my CR VW. Great products that are thought out much better than the OEM.

Contain Flow return filter update. Sorry folks.
I greatly apologize.
Recent discussion has raised concerns that the 5 micron filters used in this kit are not suitable to contain the Sub Micron particles, created after an HPFP failure.
No more kits will be sold at this time. A better filter will be sourced and flow tested to help satisfy the concerns raised by our great club members!
Sorry to all.
Thanks for the understanding,
Andrew

I am saddened by your decision but understand. For everyone else, Andrew is an upstanding individual and really cares about helping others. Andrew has been extremely diligent in thinking out the process of testing and developing add-ons that would reduce the damage of a catastrophic HPFP failure. Certainly, he is not able to afford to mimic the failure in a controlled test setting. But, his add-ons have been tested and shown to not pose a risk IMHO. Please continue to encourage Andrew to continue his great work for all of us.

I'd like to openly say thank you to Andrew for everything he has done. Even if his products don't continue to be developed.

I'm thinking 5 microns is still better than no filtration. Hope your quest for a finer filter is successful and we see this great concept available to us again!

I agree. If the existing/stock filter is less efficient, doesn't that presume that there are already contaminants (dirt, etc) that are less than 5 microns in size that are passing through the entire system?

Good point...

This is exactly the reason why I have no intention of removing my return filter. It will stay in my car - at least until 2micron comes up with a better design.

Have Fun!

The ALHs and PDs run a CAT (2 micron) or a 1 micron filter as an upgrade to the OEM filter with no issues. Why would running one of these "type" be an issue with the CR?

As has been said, even at 5 micron, this is an improvement.

IF (big if) the problem is sub-micron particles, even a 1 micron filter might not be enough. Our biggest problem is how little we really know about the number and size of contaminate particles. We are forced to do some guessing here.

Have Fun!

I'm waiting on the IC drain kit. Seems like this would be the easiest to install and the least noticable when I get service done.

I'm waiting for that too. However, I'm lucky, so this is a low priority. Where I live moisture (in any form) is pretty rare. There is not much condensation when the relative humidity is measured in single digits. People here consider 30% humidity to be "muggy". They have no idea what muggy really feels like (I lived for several years in Louisiana). Also there is no issue with freezing when the temperature in my garage rarely goes below 50 degrees F. at night and daytime temps are always above freezing.

Not only would is be the least noticeable, but it would also probably be the least objectionable to a dealer.

Have Fun!

Don
