    Newbie introduction

    Hey there, I have a MK6 TSI118 with the CAVD engine (unfortunately) Iíve had the car for about 3 months with no problems whatsoever, I love the car, itís amazing, but reading these posts (as I should have before buying the car) have given me doubts, I hope nothing happens to it and I want to tune it however as I have realised no mechanic is willing to touch it, I want to gain more knowledge about my car and learn more about VW + how to keep it running and in good nick

    Welcome! Hopefully, you have a good run with your car.

    Check the books and see if the timing chain tensioner has been done for the revised parts.

    Also, only run 98 in these engines, any sort of knock will increase the chance of the pistons cracking.

    How many kilometres are on the car?

    Hey thanks for the reply, yeah Iíve only been using 98, and Iíve had a look and some of the main things that stuck out was: replacement of water pump/ supercharger clutch, VBELT on the parts list, cylinder 2 replaced due to material failure, removed and replaced turbo charger with new manifold gaskets, replacement of actuation regulation flap due to electrical malfunction. Seems like itís been through a lot, hopefully itís healthy now and I guess we will see when it goes in for a service next! It has 113432kms at the moment
