    JB4 Logging, stacking and Map 6 Discussion

    I had similar problems using BT on a Samsung phone. The JB4 app could not find the new downloaded firmware. I used the Samsung My Files app to move the new file out of the Downloads folder to the JB4 folder, where the other firmware revisions live. Once I restarted the app, the new file was...

    Yup, I'm aware of that method, but I have VCDS and it's no big deal to monitor the transmission temp.

    A similar question to the original question. If I have a JB4 and add a catted DP, as long as I run it on Map0 (stock), it's guaranteed to achieve readiness? This would mean that I could change back to Map0, drive it for 50 miles or so, and pass emissions. Yay or nay?

    Visual and ODB-II scan for readiness. It wasn't that long ago that they mandated a dyno sniffer test.

    What 147k mile valves look like 2015 Gti

    I had no idea Mk7's had tensioner issues.

    Only took 4 days. Pics of clutch.

    You'll need a mount as well, but they should have both. Try the visual check first. The ones I've heard about were ass visible just by watching the pulley while actuating the clutch.
