    Torsion Value Adjustment

    Are there any pictures on this site depicting the torsion value adjustment process? I've recently eliminated vibration issues related to poor aftermarket shafts, but have recently noticed a significant drop (1/3) in gas mileage. Thanks.

    Vibration Issue

    Setting Torsion Value I'm assuming that you check the torsion value w/ the vag-com and then mechanically adjust the setting. Are there any pictures that depict the location of the area where the adjustment is done? Also, is the adjustment done w/ engine running? Sorry if I'm being stupid...

    Vibration Issue

    After chipping, the mpg really didn't noticeably change. I used Jeff's std + because I haven't modified anything else. Torque increases to about 300 psi, as I understand it. However, lately, w/ this shudder, mileage is way off. Not sure what to make of it.

    Vibration Issue

    Same "Bad" Vibrations Just did this weekend on my way back from Pittsburgh. As I accelerate or in cruise going uphill, it feels more like a shudder or torque converter slippage. I have Jeff's rocket chip +, new engine mounts (all 3), new BSM gear driven, but still have Chinese axels in it...

    First oil change with 2005 Passat TDI
