In speaking with my local VW parts guy he said he looked at the pictures of the new Q7 part (year 2012) and the 06-08 3.6L passat and saw that they are "completely different".
Now, I haven't looked at either because I can't see a picture anywhere on the internet. But I NEED to find a way to make this housing work.
The part that user JBallou says has been updated includes a new check valve that combats the dry start up worries. He speaks of it on this post in the 3.6L failure thread: https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...1#post70965422
Trust me, dry start up noise that you hear is that of your bearings making noise. How do I know? Well, the same noise I heard upon start up was the noise I heard when I spun my bearing. This can't be good for the motor and I'm sure it's only going to make my motor spin it's new bearings I just put in (spun 2 of them....cylinder 4 and 6).
