    Does better Oil increase horsepower and throttle response?

    There is probably a small difference but I would say that you are experiencing a placebo effect.

    1990 Talon Tsi AWD Drag/Street build

    About 6 months ago I traded my boosted 420a gs for a 1990 TSI AWD. The car came needing A LOT OF TLC. The charge lines were loose and the thing would barely want to drive a mile or two. I was just happy to finally get a 4g63!!!!! I know the car had some potential I just had to do a couple of...

    New to DSM. Hi everyone

    man you are going about this all wrong. Don't buy a new one if its not broken. You are going to have to get under the dash and adjust the mastercylinder linkage. Do it before you destroy your synchros. I have a 90 tsi awd and absolutely love it! congrats.

    1g clutch slave or clutch going bad?

    Ok, I bled the clutch run smoother than it has since I had the car. No clutch grab at all. The next morning the car would not let me select any gear at all. I am either thinking clutch slave or a hole in the line. I did have to mess with the line a little bit the other day in order to get my...

    Clutch drag from hydraulics, whole in the line master cylinder, slave cylinder?

    Ok guys, I think my slave cylinder is going or something. If I bleed the clutch and let it sit overnight it will not let me select a gear in the morning. If I bleed the clutch it will drive like butter until I let it sit for a couple of hours or more. I feel like this is leaning more towards my...

    car took a dump on the highway

    Unfortunately, when you run the car at a high enough temp the aluminum head start to warp. A spike in temperature can be caused by a depressurized coolant system, allowing the coolant to boil and dramatically raise temperature. However, once the head gets hot enough and begins to warp it will...

    switched to castrol nextgen full synthetic get funny noises till warm is this normal?

    I'm using full synthetic now my power steering has been deleted. If he sound doesn't go away I might go to 20w50 royal purple. Is this too heavy or should it be ok? It's only when it's warming up then the noise vanishes. I just don't want to be too then and mess anything up Or what about a...

    Ok guys I just switched from a semiconvential 10w30 to castroil 10w30 nextgen full conventional. Immediately after start up I noticed that the engine sounded like I could hear the oil pump making noise. Not really like a grinding or anything just that the pump is audible. The oil pressure is...

    Bad compression test results, advice?

    I would imagine it would be the valves if your getting 0 on it... pull the head and look to see if everything is the way it should be. Compare the other three to the one that is low.
