Compression test, all cylinders around 185ish psi. Just ticked over 80k miles not long ago.
Nice, you have to correct for elevation...but I believe anything at or above 190 is considered within spec for "new" by VW.

Only 400ft above sea level.

VW spec is 160-203psi for "New"

actually driving the GTI since it’s so hot out here right now. It’s been like 105-108 every day for last 3 weeks.

I guess the VW dealer thinks I should drive it more also, they said I can save now on my overdue 60k mile service, lol. The car still has 48k miles, about 4K miles on it since I bought it a bit over a year ago.

Secondary air filter was sold separate. Also APR brand. Its a pretty easy zip tie just to the large coolant line running right in front of the intake.

Honestly the install was shockingly easy. Not even a single screw had to be undone. The intake is held down with rubber grommets so you literally just yank the old one off and pop this one on.
