Injuries suck! Hopefully you heal up quick. Been dealing with some injuries myself but with Chrisí help and some changes in my workouts ive been able to get back into the swing of things slowly.

Yeah that track is not very good for tires, especially on heavier cars. I would recommend doing the hpde event though. I had a blast. Completely different thrill ride than autocross.

A few autocross events shouldnt put too much wear on your PSS. I got 2.5 years out of my Direzza Z1 Star Specs (sticky autox tires) on the old integra with maybe 20-22 autocross events, bunch of road trips, and daily driving. I guess it does depend on the car and how aggressively you drive.

@Colby

have you seen this? https://www.amsoil.com/lander/lspi-update/

"Proving it can protect turbocharged direct-injected engines, AMSOIL achieved 100 percent protection against LSPI in the engine test required by the GM dexos1ģ Gen 2 specification."

You could try doing an oil analysis to see how much calcium is actually in the system. Not sure how much that would actually tell you anything

I'm going to guess that probably costs more then it's worth but I'll look into it thank you.  (More then it's worth since I'm not a show guy just wanted wheels that don't leak :)  )

Itís about $100 for a pair if i recall correctly.

Not a wheel person so a dumb question.

I needed some new wheels for my Jetta because my summer wheels leak.  Not being careful/picky I bought some 17" BBS RK's from kijiji (the guy might even be on here) because the add showed them on a same era golf so I figured they'd fit.

Getting them home I realize they are factory Subaru rims (right bolt pattern, wrong offset and bore diameter)

Even if I got spacers(10mm would be = to the factory offset) and longer conical nuts I can't get around the bore size without machining them right?   There is 1mm difference. 

So I'm wondering what he did to get them on his Golf (or maybe it was just a picture and he never actually ran them)  Do they make spacers that have a smaller bore size or no centering flange at all?

You can have custom spacers made that can have two different bore sizes. There may be a minimum thickness but you should be able to just google custom wheel spacers. I can look for the site when iím not on a phone

I chatted some more with BrenTuning today. It turns out that the FA20DIT setups when properly running will compensate the amount of boost based on the ambient temperature. I have no idea how the Duty Cycle works, but it was at 71% and that somehow equals over 22 PSI. However in low temps such as -17, when I took that log, the ecu drops the boost because of the denser air. The turbo running at 13 PSI at -15C is equal to it running at 20PSI at +15C... If I understand it right and all things are roughly equal.

With that being said BT wont tune the car until we are above +3C... soooo I may be waiting till spring to tune. We shall see how things unfold.

Regarding the maintenance, It has solved the fueling issues that I was having with it and is running much more consistent.

Its still pulling timing, but only on tip in/out throttle. Its no longer doing it when cruising!

yeah that's pretty standard. During the summer I've seen 22psi but during the winter I don't think my car has hit over 18psi. Colder air is more dense and requires less of it to reach the required number.

probably for the best too. I think you would want to log is warmer temps as hotter conditions might be more prone to knocking.

Here are two WOT logs, One before the intake system service and one after. Both on Bren Tune Rev 2.

Here is a crusing log, BrenTuning, Rev 2 - https://datazap.me/u/cspence47/cruise-after-wot?log=0&data=8-24

Here is one from the last Rev on the TP Tune - https://datazap.me/u/cspence47/tp-wot?log=0&data=7-21

To me the tapering boost was not a factor of the tune but of a boost leak that Ive had for a while. It should taper but not by 7 psi, at least to my assumptions.

So from here I'll keep playing and tuning with Bren and see how things go!

Boost taper will depend on what your initial boost is and how much pressure your turbo could build. For example, my peak boost hits 21.5 at around 3400 rpms but tapers down to 13-14 by 5500 rpms. The turbo is just too small to keep up that pressure.

Your cruise logs still show a lot of random feedback knock. Are you feeling the car pull timing like it did during during our drive to the rally? DAM is all over the place as well but I believe you mentioned that was because of the direct injection.
