Ain't that bad if you don't relieve it. Just have a cloth ready to soak some up. But then again, I have been more liberal with my hpfp and lpfp installs than some.

Being a stock boi would solve all your woes
You know what? I actually got it home Friday. Swapped OEM coils and original OEM plugs back in and put the factory firmware on. I was gonna crack open the DP to check turbo but ran out of time. So after a long day Saturday doing other stuff I decided I would take her out for a spin on stock. I shook her down. Started in D no shifts above 3k after warm up I went to sport and push a little more. I made sure to hit 3,3.5,4,4.5 up to 5.5k RPM and she drove great! My son drove it yesterday; he drives like a granny and is seriously considering buying the GTI from me. He said there were no problems except a CEL. I told him it would likely happen since DP was on with stock software. So, yeah. Something to be said about stock boi.

Make sure you work up an as-is document so your son can't sue you if it grenades :ROFLMAO:

Getting DP swapped for OEM now. Obviously I drove it this AM. Ran fine for a few miles then shuddered during a very light accel. I backed off than it did it again but not after. This is with stock plugs confirm gap and torqued to spec. No CEL, I am going to CRC through the MAP and run some Liqui Jectron cleaner and go sell it. Maybe it will not show its ass during inspection.

It's just f*cking horse squeeze because this is the first car I have had that I have not wanted to get rid of after two years. Oh well. I scored a used Ridgeline that I traded a 2010 tacoma in for so there is that. Big difference from GTI but I still have a stinger GT in the stable.

Get another one. Trade this one in for a newer one.

How are you liking the Ridgeline after Taco?
