    Stubble and at loss,

    I second the algae bloom theory. I would replace the fuel filter like Oilhammer mentioned. One bad tank of fuel can plug one fairly quickly. Change filter and add something that kills algae bloom and then see if it is fixed.

    04 bew cutting out

    I'm sure others with more knowledge will chime in but I had an injector harness that went bad that acted like this. It never threw a code. Mine seemed to happen mostly at highway speed (60+ mph). I put in an OEM harness and that fixed it.

    2000 golf tdi manual...whats it worth?

    Lots of variables to consider. How many miles does it have? what's the body like? any rust? I always figure that in most areas of the USA, a running car is worth at least $2000 dollars.

    2005 Jetta Tdi misfire

    I had what I thought was a miss that usually showed up around 70mph and was intermittent. It threw no codes on VCDS. I changed the injector harness because I had over 250k and that fixed it. How many miles are on your car?

    Intermittent misfires on BEW

    I had a similar issue with mine. I changed the injector harness despite not having any codes and it did cure it. Those intermittent things can be so hard to nail down. I had about 244k on the original injector harness so I figured a new OEM one would last the rest of the lifetime of the car...

    I've always heard the quote about, "driving torque" as in it gives you that seat of the pants acceleration. In these tests what is the difference in numbers between stock and open exhaust? It surely can't be much. Also I would think it would be incredibly loud.

    That was a great explanation, Oilhammer. Made me understand it much more clearly.
