    Skid plate. Best and most reasonable options?

    I installed this one on my MK6 Jetta a few months ago. https://www.idparts.com/heavy-duty-aluminum-skid-plate-mk6-jettabeetle-a3009-p-5372.html#product_tabs It might be more heavy-duty than the one listed above. It cost a little more but we usually get what we pay for. Either option is better...

    CA Smog and Tune

    CA is the world's 5th largest economy. With that in mind, somebody is going to figure out how to defeat CA's technology and make a killing $$$. IMHO.

    Low Oil Pressure - BEW

    We cleaned the oil pan thoroughly. How do you suggest we flush?

    Low Oil Pressure - BEW

    I have owned the car since 156K miles. I have not replaced lifters during my tenure and no mention in the Carfax report. Currently 218K miles. I'm not disputing your opinion at all. I'm just sharing the info I have.

    I'm not sure what they are. I'm just speculating. I'll gladly take all the advice anyone has on those pieces.

    Low Oil Pressure - BEW

    It had a catastrophic turbo failure 60K miles ago. I had it replaced by a repair shop in 2018. I'm thinking maybe they didn't flush the engine. I was a new TDI owner at the time and I drove it about 15 miles until it quit running. I know that's the worst thing to do now. What can I say I was green.

    Those numbers are after replacing the oil pump, oil pickup tube, and oil filter housing.

    The change was sudden. I have replaced the oil pump, oil pickup tube, and oil filter housing.

    Low Oil Pressure - BEW

    Pressures hot at idle 10psi. 1500 rpm is 15psi. 2000 rpm is 19psi. We used T piping to run the oil pressure gauge and factory oil pressure switch together. Oil light came on often at 1500 rpm and psi was 15.
