I hope so! I didn't tell her that's what I was getting on the plate. So when she realized it I scored some major brownie points. Though I'm probably going to use them all up in a few weeks when the next round of parts starts showing up on the doorstep lol.

Not having a car payment is awesome. More money for car parts! Lol. Overall the car is already running really well and a lot of this is just PM work to ensure it can run to 500k miles with no issues. The interior isn't a big deal at the moment but if I find the right deal on grey heated seats (cloth or pleather - it doesn't matter) I may do them earlier then planned.

The plan for the car is in the next four weeks
Change all fluids and filters (including brake and steering)
Pulling all four fender liners/cleaning/POR15 if needed
Vogtland Junior Cup suspension setup
Panzer Plate and FMJ
2.5" Stainless Steel Exhaust
Malone Stage 1.5 tune w/ Dynamic Idle and Dynamic EGR

Then... Spring 2018
Replace intake manifold and intercooler
Injector overhaul and Bosio 1043 nozzles

Fall 2018
Cooling system overhaul - including new radiator and thermostat

2019
VNT-17 turbo
Reupholster interior and new headliner (it has the common mkiv issues)
HID headlights

SO it appears I most likely have a broken lower egr pipe. I haven't actually gotten under the car to verify yet but others with the same high pitched tea-kettle like whistle have found the same problem. I ordered a new pipe and gaskets and when I install the new exhaust I'll check the pipe. Depending on condition even if not broken I'll probably replace it since I have the parts and I'm already under the car.

Look at this thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=263090 to see why pipes break. Important so it doesn't happen again.

The bracket is indeed there as the car was not part of the recall (I have a buddy who runs thebservice deptarment of my local VW dealer run the VIN). Between the trans swap that was just completed and the car not having a belly pan to protect against corrosion I'm pretty sure the pipe cracked due to that.

Are all three screws in the bracket? If so you're probably right about corrosion.

The top and bottom screws are present but the middle screw is missing. Seems like it would be easy to replace. Does anyone know the size I would need and is something I can source from a hardware store.

Ah, now you see the problem. Here's what a complete set of screws looks like, don't know which you'd consider the middle screw in the bracket. http://www.idparts.com/egr-cooler-bo...ew-p-2411.html

And I know one of them isn't easy to replace, which is why dealer techs tend to leave them out when servicing the car. I don't think you're going to get something that will fit at a hardware store.

The screw that's probably the hardest to get to (I couldn't actually see it - I felt that it was there) is there. It's the one right above it. Either way screws ordered and will be installed with everything else!

Placed the order with Malone for the 1.5 tune with dynamic EGR and a permanently raised idle to 1k. Doing the logging tomorrow however I'm going to wait to install the tune until the end of the month when the exhaust and lower EGR pipe are replaced.

Keeping the EGR to help with engine warm up was important but I didnt want it running all the time. Dynamic EGR seemed like the best solution. I'm putting in stage 1 Dogbone bushings due to the larger exhaust and in my research the 1k idle should help with the vibration due to the stiffer bushings.

Car goes to New German Performance on Tues/Wed for a suspension refresh. I'm hoping between good suspension/alignment, replacing the belly pan, and fixing the leaking egr pipe my fuel mileage will come up a bit. 41 isn't bad given that most of highway driving is at 70mph at 2500rpm. I would drive slower but in the D.C. Capital region (where I commute to for work) 70mph is barely fast enough so that no one runs into the back of you.

Completed the ventectomy today. The hardest part was getting the thing out. It was stuck in there pretty good. Once it was finally out I had modified and back in the car within minutes.

More parts ordered today. My Bosch check came in the mail last week and since the car still has its original MAF sensor I'm using part of that money for a new one. I also picked up a DieselGeek Sigma 5 short shifter. MAF will be installed when I do all my PM work at the end of the month and short shifter will go in st the same time if I things go smoothly with all the other PM work.

Car came back from NGP today. Hard to tell from the photos but the new suspension lowered it about an inch and looks great in person. The ride is so much better then the old OEM setup and it can actually take corners with some speed now. Mike at NGP was great to work with through the entire project and they actually had the car done earlier then promised.

First fill up after the ventectomy. It filled much faster and I probably got an extra 2gal in the tank (I filled 14g at 1/4 tank). I fill up in Maryland on my way home from work since fuel is almost 40 cheaper. Suspension is settling in nicely and giving the car a really nice aggressive but still good ride height.
