      T6 is working well in both 2017 and 2019 1.4 Jettas in this family. In terms of oil service I would also recommend going with a better filter. They run that tiny little can on the 1.4s 8psi bypass...

      Output Oil Seal Leak

      20k miles, found this on the 2nd scheduled oil change:

      Got any data to back up this specious claim? By DATA, I mean MAF logs, AFR correlation AND turbo MAP graphs.
