    Hey all, My 2008 2.0T Variant runs fine, except while running fully warmed up on the highway. Then, at cruising speed, the engine shudders if you try anything more than gentle acceleration. If you push deliberately on the gas at about 1,500 rpm, the engine shudders, fails to accelerate, and...

    I bought the basic APR kit for my AEB engine (91 program) about a year ago. New OEM spark plugs (NGP, I believe), new vac lines & checks, new timing belt stuff, and a new TT DV were installed at the time of chipping. Stock intake. Immediately, I noticed that the engine had much more power, but...
