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
