What caused issues?
The brake shields are fitted over the hub not just bolted on so I cut them off instead of removing the hubs. The stock carrier bolts don't fit the upgraded carriers thankfully just a small issue since I got the aftermarket bolts just in case.

Well, brother, it goes something like this. I've had the car for three years now, stage one, stage two hybrid. When it was on stage 2 I ran it with rs7 plugs. When I pulled them they looked good. I got Ruths cause everyone raved about them. Turns out, they run too hot for a hybrid pump tune. I ran the car like this for..... 3k? If I did damage it most likely wasn't significant enough. Never had random misfires etc... My plan is to keep the car until 2026 or until it hits 180k km whichever comes first. Odds are I didn't do enough damage to impact me until either of those. At that point in time mk7. 5 and I swap all the parts over. I love this platform I don't wanna leave. And I particularly like this gti. I got all the options and the plaid seats. Even when the pump started to leak I just looked at it and said "You son of a bitch, you'reup to something again". Tomorrow, I get to change this pump and pull the injectors. I'll most likely have a few stressful moments, but at least I'm working at the front of the engine bay and I'll feel accomplished when I wrap it uo. And my new thing is to always put it on ramps, not matter what so that my back and hammys don't kill. That was too much. Whatever, I love the car, I'm gonna enjoy it and not get upset over every little cunt hair that gets on my tongue.

Went for a rip with the new plugs, still got the the misfire. Changing injectors tomorrow, if it still arises after that.... Multimeter and check the grounds next? Logs look clean.

Is it EPC misfire on shift at WOT kinda deal, or you're logging a misfire on shift that is hanging out and repeatable?

Changing to $160 racing plugs at EQT's recommendation didn't fix a misfire??!?

(nothing against you I just have personal qualms against EQT's spark plug recommendations)
