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.
