      Possibly too late on the reply but the proper length is simply however long it has to be to fit in each bolt hole easily (without much hassle), with the sway bar end parallel to the ground and the...

      I would put in the control module for lpfp. See what happens. Then try to find someone local with VCDS (put a post out on PA dubbers or any number of Facebook groups) or just buy it yourself, and do...

      Yes I would recommend that. You already have the part in-hand and it is a known failure-prone part with a recall on it so it is only logical to replace it first. The HP fuel sensor and the fuel...

      I respect that you see where I’m coming from and I see where you from even if I disagree, so we have a mutual understanding and you’ve explained that all well.

      Okay, regardless of how you explained it, the gist of it was that starting out gently form a stop you saw some noteworthy amount of boost straight away... that's not how it works. You have next to...

      This is semi-helpful. I can see the beginnings of what appears to be a healthy boost curve and control but I can't see the whole picture to confirm anything solid because you refuse to go above 3K...
