Lol you got me there but this is what I started with and it only took 20 minutes to clean lolVery nice, but you missed a spot on the underside of your dip stick tube.
The asv is a good idea, I'm thinking of doing the same thing but with the PD 150 one to go with the PD 150 manifold. Regarding the reservoir apparently it's just there to run the vnt tests with vagcom, it stores vacuum to use when the engine is not running. If you look at the likes of the AGR which is basically the ALH but with a wastegate turbo it doesn't have the reservoir so it's not to do with the brakes.You could remove the reservoir but you would lose any backup vacuum to operate the brakes if your engine suddenly stopped running. and if like my car which has the EGR deleted and has had the EGR / ASV valve gutted out and smoothed out inside so it now replaces the race pipe but with the ASV still working to shut the engine down, when you turn the car off and also when needed to help stop a run-away engine. You can always move the reservoir to a better spot if you need to.
