Finally had the opportunity to get the AKS Tuning VAG TFSI cam follower to TSI cam follower roller conversion kit fitted. :jumpmove:

I've also removed the Celtemp cover from the HPFP. The TTS engine cover wouldn't fit properly with that HPFP cover fitted. Due to the new HPFP position I don't think that it's likely that the engine cover will be able to damage the HPFP top sensor plug. From what I felt with my fingers the engine cover can't touch the HPFP, especially due to the oil catch can silicone pipes touching the engine cover when it's completely snugged in its brackets.

After that was done I had the oil and filter exchanged. This time with Motul 300V Power 5w40. Last service was in September 2017 and the car has made 5850 km/3635 miles. :smiley:

If you have a BBK on the front, definitely get the R32 rear brakes at least. It's like Andy said. If you still have factory fitted brakes, just upgrading the pads on the rear such be enough to balance the car under heavy braking.

Different dynos make different graphics. Some smooth the lines to make them prettier, I think. :thinking:

The only thing I can think of is I fitted a different ecu to check it worked but I new it wouldn't run due to coding.  Could it be that ? When you clear it the code just comes beck it's also saying the ecu isn't coded but it runs fine .

Have you changed anything? As far as I can tell about that fault code it's:

049922 - Software Incompatibility with Transmission Control Module

So basically a coding problem.

it balances the car better when braking..the r32 rear brakes is the best option
Performance Modifications / Rear brakes, worth upgrading?
« Last post by colesey on Yesterday at 08:08:48 PM Started by colesey  »
My brakes had a nice upgrade last week - endless mx72 pads & bronze bushes on front / HEL lines / ATE 200 fluid - and I can now pretty much now do stoppies. Question is how worthwhile it is to upgrade the rear brakes with, say, similar pads or caddie calipers? I appreciate how the front does 80% of the work but would also like to keep the car well balanced in addition to maximising stopping power. Appreciate the views of those with experience of such matters.

Cheers guys. I think I’ll go down the re-gas route first and see what happens.
