    Hi guys, First posts around here. I just had a Quantum stage 1 remap done and also the timing belt serviced, oil and filters changed as well. One day after having everything done I hit a major pothole (steel rim got seriously bent) and a few hours after, the car started going into limp mode...

    I installed my boost gauge today and it rests at -20psi at idle, but when i do full throttle runs it wont go past 0psi I have installed it properly off the fpr. Using the plastic wiring that came with the gauge. Im pretty positive i have no boost leak because i had seafoamed my car and no smoke...
  3. MKIV GTI
    Hi all, Car is MK4 GTI 1.8T (AGU) I installed boost gauge today and tested it on few runs and I get in 2nd gear 0.8+ Bar, in 3rd Gear 0.9 Bar and in 4th gear 1/1.1 Bar. So my question is, is my car remapped/chipped? It has Remus exhaust + Racing air filter, maybe H&K (not cold intake) I...
  4. MKV GTI
    Hello! 2006 GTI FSI No mods So the other morning it was -16 degrees outside. I let the GTI warm up for about 20 minutes before driving to work. On my way out, as I accelerated through the gears, I felt the engine "buck" a little bit and the boost/acceleration was extremely sluggish. After...

    I'm posting this for my boyfriend because his computer is broken and his GTI needs some help! So here's what is going on... His 2002 GTI 1.8T has a blue cloud of smoke that comes out of the exhaust while the car is driving but only when the car is in boost/high RPMs. There is no smoke when the...
  6. 1.8 / 1.8T Engines
    when i purchased this car in feb. it ran like a beast. going to 25psi without any problem and run so smooth no matter the conditions. lately it has been wanting to bog after warming up when exceeding 10lbs of boost and it stutters really bad until a high rpm is reached. huge loss in power. i...

  8. MKIV GTI
    I am currently driving a 2004 Golf GTI. While driving today my traction control turned on and remained on. I pulled over and turned off my car and started it. The traction control light turned off but while driving it turned on again. When the car shifted either up or down it had a hard jerky...

    whats up guys, its been nearly 2 years and i finally bought another gti... I got a 337 with 110k for 6k so i think i did pretty good imo. Everything is pretty clean, the owner said it was stock for as long as he had it, and he was the 2nd owner. This last weekend, i put in a mechanical boost...

The problem is that my car would push and hold 18psi, but now all of the sudden without me changing anything, the car will boost up to 20 and maybe over, my gage only goes it 20. but as soon as it hits 20 the car goes to limp mode and hold 5psi, untill i release...

  12. MKV GTI
    Alright so I have finally figured out what I want and I just had a few questions. I'm planning on upgrading my 2007 GTI (6speed) to stage 1 APR (Stage 2 later on), and I was just wondering if I should be running a turbo timer (I do drive my car pretty hard and I thought it might help lengthen...

    I'm considering getting this and was wondering what kind of gains I could expect to see with the additional PSI. Anyone know?

  16. MKIV GTI
    Got an mk4 gti about a month ago. sold my bmw to get it, and it's worth it. recently i have noticed i have turo lag obviously, at low rpms and betwee 2500 and 3000 i gain power but it often feels like the turbo just stops working or something and the rmps don't rise as quickly so i have to...
