    Veedubtdi. I think you need to update you survey link to include a few more fields. My wish list of data would be to add the following: Does you car have inter cooler kit installed? (Yes/no) Kit install date? Hard to start/no start date? And maybe too much data to ask for but this would be...

This stutter is caused by the water being blown into the cylinder when the turbo spools up. As some others reported, I can agree that it seems like the kit it not 100%...

    Order up a 2013 MkVI or wait for a 14/15 MkVII?

    just pony up and buy the 2013 and then when the 2014 becomes a 2016 (dialed in) trade up, that way you don't have to wait to drive a modern 2.0L CR TDI!!!

    Hard Start / No Start - Is your intercooler frozen? Check Here!

    If you mean mimmick the air-to-water intercooler design of the 2012 Passat then yes, that will fix the problem. That is a really good idea, add a heater line inside the intercooler. Main problem is the air-to-air intercooler is too efficient for the cold weather, it supercools the hot/humid...
