Probably what I meant to say, just said it wrong.A couple of notes. I believe the whole cylinder head was replaced/rebuilt. Not just the valve cover.
You also have Tein Flex Z coil overs, so you can add that to your mods list.
None yet! I want to fix a bunch of stuff first, like the Cruise Control delete, My AC compressor, Black Paintjob, etc. No racecar plans though.Good start! Any future plans?
I had only read about it, when I saw it in person for the first time I 100% thought it was gray. Its a bit faded, but it is brown!Wow ive never seen or heard of a tsi with brown interior, I have seen only two in my life span and those where esi's, one of which is my little brothers now.
I'm in agreement. Leakdown test is in order. If it a not consuming oil or blowing smoke something besides rings seems more suspect. Possible easy...ish fix.Yeah, sorry for the bad news. I know it's hard watching a ship slowly sinking like that. The low compression was on cylinder 2 though. I'll pick up a leak-down tester this week and verify the failure.
I did manage to find 2 major boost leaks though from your throttle body gasket and BISS oring. I'll keep hunting for them over the next few days
These are the words of someone who wasn't doing their job correctly. I was so wrong in this quote here, it was barely a 15 minute job to put that thing back together. Shame on me...Who would have though that working on the doors would be more difficult that pulling the engine? Not me, turns out they are.
