      Just curious if anyone knows how much power a 1.4tsi can handle before it makes it un reliable?

      Not at all. I have had a K&N panel air filter since 15k miles until 70k or so. About 5-10k with a short ram done myself. I had a shop do the exhaust. Stock is about 2 inch before the downstream cat. After the middle it’s like 1 7/8inch or so. I went with 2.25 inch exhaust from the downstream o2 sensor delete the cat and straight back with a 2.5 magnaflow straight thru muffler and tip. Sounds great to me. Stock tune tho would love to tune but clutch would be an issue. I redline this car at least once every time it’s warmed up. Had it since 40 miles now at almost 82k still runs like a champ!!!

      I really want to do a tune but didn't know if it was going to mess with the reliablility

      Stage one? Make sure you always use the right octane even before tuning and check your trans fluid regularly as well as change your engine oil sooner . I change my filter and oil every 5k miles

      I've had the jb4 on my 1.4 for about 5 months now (maybe more) intake, bov with silicon pipe, solid upper mount, poly in the dog bone and trans mounts, and an ecs short throw kit. Depending on the temps I hit between 20-23psi without any issue. Currently at 86k, jb4 installed around 77k. These engines are pretty stout

      Unitronic says 196hp tune plus cai +7ish hp has " OEM like drivability and reliability" I wouldn't push more then 225 but that's just me!

      There’s a Mk7 Golf 1.4Tsi 5 speed in Mexico. K04 , meth injection, 3 inch Downpipe and few more upgrades pushing 240 to the wheels. Then they also did the same engine but with a 100 hp nitrous shot. Car made 330ish hp to the wheels... stock internals... again they did said it could blow any time
