Hi Team,
I have tried to follow numerous threads on this dreaded issue but the answers are never clear.
I have a 2012 Touareg V6 TDI with 180km
Last June, I encountered error P0087 - Fuel Rail System / Pressure Too Low and thus at 3000rpm the car would essentially shut down power.

Over the last several months I have replaced:
- all injectors
- rail register

The cars live data is normal with no drops so we are absolutely stumped.

VW dealer has suggested we run the available software update to see if it clears the code?
Its been a great vehicle and perhaps issue is due to the drakebox chip I put on for a few months.

please help 🙏🏽
