00:23 – Q1 – I have an 2007 B6 Passat 2.0t FSI. I have fault codes P1531, P0243 and P0033. I have checked the diverter valve and it seems that I have the current revision. I have also checked the N75 and found I have been unable to find specs on Ohm readings. Can you help?

4:54 – Q2 – I have a DV spacer on my 2.0t engine and after some spirited driving I have a check engine light with fault code P0299 which is turbo charge underboost. Could this be realted to the DV spacer?

7:52 – Q3 – I have a MK7 GTI with a DSG transmission it seems to lunge forward when I let off the gas. Its almost like a clutch dump where its a heavy downshift. Any ideas?

    Re #askDAP show
    Thank you for your fine work. Your knowledge is impressive and appreciated.
    Question. Re. EA888 2 l engine in my GTI is rated at 220 HP (PP) What changes made by Audi to advertise 256 hp (+/-) this year.
    Isn’t this the same engine ? Is it simply the real HP number in my GTI ?
