Hey James, can you send me a shopping list for the chain job? (O2M, 24v GTI)
Tried pm, but you're full
Also, would you recommend Peloquin or Quaife?

frenchy... are you back?

Hmm, hadn't heard of Wavetrack before. Did a little research and they look pretty cool, though cost a bit more than the quaifes, at least from autotech's website. They don't mention whether they come with the bolt kits either. I'm guessing not, which would make them even more. Still, it sounds like a very nice LSD...

That's not bad at ALL!

So I can buy a Wavetrac from you James? They want almost a grand on autotech for the lsd and bolt kit. The cheapest I've seen the quaife is on vortex right now for somewhere around $850 with bolt kit iirc.

The way I understand it the only difference is when one wheel is off the ground the quaife/peloquin will spin that wheel still while the wavetrac will transfer more power to the outside wheel or stop the wheel that's off the ground. Otherwise its basically the same.
I guess I'll go with the wavetrac

Basically you guys are saying the wavetrac has more preload built in than quaife or peloquin.

So a catch can would be preventive, but what do you do about the gunk that already built up?

how would i put a catch can in my car? there is alot of oil in my intake boot, there is oil dripping on the filter
Posted: Mon Aug 03, 2009 2:41 pm
Why would it be illegal for catch cans?

This is what happens to an FSI after 60K miles with a properly functioning PCV system. No fuel squirting on the back of the valve and it acts like a diesel gathering soot.
The symptom was low rpm misfire.
So I guess v8 touaregs are also prone to this problem?. I'm getting a weird nose on the driver side part of the engine.... with 20k miles
Posted: Wed Aug 05, 2009 8:08 pm
Yeah it's a 2007 with the newer 4.2 V8 FSI
