Looked at data in Group 032 and saw my LTFT off idle was +13%. So I did a smoke test into the intake and right away discovered smoke coming from the MAF in my Neuspeed P-Flo intake. Although the MAF was snug and the MAF seal was intact...it leaks. I tried doubling up the seal, adding another from a spare MAF I have but it still leaked. So I tried just an o-ring and still it leaked. So I put the MAF seal back onto the MAF and added the o-ring and finally it sealed. After one day the  LTFT dropped to 9%, so I cleared everything and will drive it another day to see if it goes even closer to 0%. It seems Neuspeed machined the MAF port in their intake a bit too deep.

Good spot.   I had exactly the same problem with my RacingLine intake.  With the MAF screws buttoned down, the seal wasn't compressed at all, so I had to get the files out and reprofile the MAF aperture.  Absolute junk, as are most aftermarket intakes.   

It's quite ironic really, how everyone thinks the OEM intake is useless and restrictive, and yet VAG can bash out mass-produced plastic boxes with perfect MAF trims and perfect sealing, but a lot of aftermarket intake makers with all their boasting of CNC machined this, billet that can't get the basic trims or sealing right  :grin:
Exactly, I thought I'd have this one turned down one day to a more accurate depth measurement for just the oem seal alone to do its job..and I can then remove the o-ring. Was lucky to find an o-ring in my kit that perfectly fit the MAF body while not being too bulky :happy2:

Hence why I've never put the mk5 on track! Did it highlight any 'opportunities for improvement' hardware-wise?

A few, but none that I am prepared to do anything about. For a 'road car' it held up amazingly well. The only real concern was oil temps.

Attempted to adjust the torsion value on my GT TDI (BKD). Originally was out by -2.5 KW and had to settle after three attempts at -1.0 KW as I ran out of time... A lot of trial & error involved as I went too far advanced to begin with but the engine seems to generally run smoother than before with how I finished it.

Will attempt one final go tomorrow all being well if the torque wrench I've been waiting for finally turns up (had to borrow one from our works' garage but only had an hour to use it)  :sad1:

Started the first step for my spare well mat, two photos one for the mat and then with the spare well back in to help show the better fit and what it should end up like.

This stage was done with carpet underlay so should eat up a lot of the road noise.

My layers are
1 - dynamat
2- carpet underlay (put two layers underneath the spare, one everywhere else)
3 - carpet colour match

The carpet underlay and carpet cost me £20 with some spray adhesive. The Dynamat is the most expensive bit, but I got a large roll of dodomat from for the door cards for £45

Not much just the daily commute..left a M235i red faced when he tried it he put his foot down and got nothing but wheel spin as it was quite damp. I put my foot down the turbo kicked in had traction and off I went lol... his car did sound awesome though I'll give him that

I need to do that as well at some point.  Should help reduce road noise and exhaust drone.  I can't believe how little sound deadening there is in MK5s!   Where did you get the underlay stuff from?

I highly recommend this for all I’ve done so far massive improvement, cut exhaust noise by about half. I’m doing the doors with sound deadening soon.

And just ebay from upholstery-diy123  got 4m2 and it was double what I needed so whacked the rest under the dogs bed lol

Took me about 10-30 minutes to cut to size
