My water pump and thermostat housing was replaced last May at 65k miles under warranty by VW. A couple weeks ago my...

    IS20 Turbo Longevity

    Now that the original Mk7 GTIs have been out for ~5 years now we should start seeing people hit higher mileage. Curious to see how people's turbos are handling stock conditions / tunes. I know there were some original turbo issues on the early revisions, but I haven't heard many issues since.

    HELP JB1 acting up

    I tried changing from Map 0 to Map 1 yesterday. I had it at the stock Map 0 as I was breaking in the new clutch I installed recently. Anyways, when I went to change maps through the JB4 app on my computer, I selected Map 1 and the window to the left showing the map changed to a random number...

    A/C Variability Issues

    Just wondering if anyone else has noticed any of these issues (not Cimatronic)... I noticed a couple months ago that when the fan was off (windows down) that fairly warm air was blowing through the vents into the cabin. I thought it might've been something that I just didn't notice in the past...

    The exhaustive what tire (conti) to buy?

    Well I know there are a ton of threads on tires, but I am strictly concerned with Continental tires. I am looking to get a new set 235/40/R18 for my daily driven stage 1 GTI (JB1). I have a dedicated set of winters (WS80 on 16" steelys); however, since I live in NE the weather changes in the...

    JB1 6MT Clutch Update "Poll"

    Because all of the 6MT people question about clutch longevity, let's dedicate this thread to only JB1 (not flash tunes) and figure out who's clutch has started to slip and who's hasn't. From what I've seen, there have been a select few people with clutch issues when paired with the JB1. List...

    Whirling Sound in Reverse - 6MT

    So I've had an "issue" that I've noticed for the past couple months. When I'm in reverse and start backing up I hear a moderate whirling sound right when the clutch bites. The car is silent with the clutch to the floor and engaged. I am not sure if this is normal or not and I only notice it...

    OBDII Soundaktor Off

    Is there a way to turn off the Soundaktor using an OBDII WIFI dongle and an app? I know many people do this using VCDS but I don't have access to one. Just have the OBD fusion app with a WIFI OBDII dongle. If so please let me know how!

    APR Boost Gauge Issue

    Using an APR boost gauge with a direct APR boost tap. Recently the gauge has been acting up and starting at ~13psi at idle. Obviously this is incorrect as it should be ~-21mmHg. It will act really weird (fluttering up and down) until finally settling down after a couple minutes. Once it...

    Crack Found :(

    So I installed my version 1 034 Motorsport mount yesterday. Had a little more trouble with the install and it definitely took longer than I expected. The actual arm connected to the mount was offset from the bolt hole once it was removed. So after getting a helping hand underneath my car we were...

    HELP! Intake Install Question

    So I just installed my new neuspeed p-flo intake and the install went nice and smoothly. I took it for a quick spin 15min or so to get the engine warm and went WOT once. I got back home and realized that I forgot to link the vacuum hose back up to the new intake. So I quickly put it back on. I...

    Which intake to choose? That is the question....

    So I've started to look at intakes and I've read some mixed reviews regarding the Ingen SP Series Cold Air Intake. This is obviously the cheapest one on the market at only ~$230. The APR one definitely looks great, but after the secondary air filter I don't think it is worth $475 for only being...

    Boost Gauge Recommendations

    Hello all. I would really like to install a boost gauge on my MK7 6MT. I have done some reading on the forums on a few articles and came across a few different gauges. The digital P3 gauge definitely seems to be the best, but it is pretty expensive in my opinion. Are they any other analogue...

    Bogging The Engine

    So I am new to driving a manual transmission and I want to get the most clutch life out of my new car that I can get. I have a question about when slowing down for a tight 90 degree turn or when slowing down for a light and needing to speed up again. When going below 10mph I would shift into...

    Manual Transmission Redline

    I am fairly new to driving a manual transmission and I am just wondering about redlining the MK7. As I'm sure most of you know, there are two redline thicknesses on the tachometer. One is at approximately 6000rpm and the other is at about 7200rpm. I am just wondering how safe it is waiting to...
