Dmf explodes, locks up tranny, which locks up crank, timing belt not strong enough to stop cams momentum so valves and pistons get an unhappy meeting resuting in damaged engine. Thats if you don't catch it, if your lucky enough to notice that there's...

    DSG Rattle

    Unfrigginbelivable! In reply to TXOILBURNER. YOU MEAN IN EUROPE THEY HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THIS PROBLEM AND RECALLED AND VWA IS NOT? This is ridiculous! All of us that are experiencing this problem need to band together somehow and plead our case to NTHSA or VWA to get a recall. You have got the...

    DSG Rattle

    Wonderful DMF's Great, just what I need b4 the holidays a huge repair bill. Have 65k and need to do timing belt and DSG service at 80k. Like I said noise is barely audible.

    DSG Rattle

    I was changing my oil today and was underneath the car making sure I didn't have any leaks and noticed a random rattle coming from the transmission case. It kind of sounds like a loose pebble being chinked around. It is not very loud you can barely hear it over the engine idle. If I grabbed both...

    Thanks tried to email rocketchip sounds like exhaust and intake are a waste of time and money at my level of performance. To Indigoblue are you happy with this level of performance? Did RC1+ give a dramatic change in seat of the pants feel?

    Just want to clarify. Only 1or2 hp after adding both the chip and exhaust? Do you go from just ahead of the cat back or from the turbo flange?

    Thanks for the good advice. Any ideas on exhaust? Hate to sound stupid but why do you need a skidplate? What kind of increase will I get from RC1 chip? How much HP/TQ can the DSG take and still be reliable? Thanks again guys!
