Questions answered above

1.My 2010 VW Jetta 2.0t TSI engine has a fault code P0299.  I check the car and I have the old style DV but the diaphragm shows no tears.  Any idea where to go next?

2.I have a MK7 GTI with a Unitronic tune.  I want to upgrade the intake but I dont know if I should do a whole intake or an upgraded filter.

3.I have a Unitronic Stage 1+ GTI and I am occasionally getting clutch slipping when launching.  Does the clutch seem like a week point for this car?

4. Could my HPFS be causing my MK5 GTI with a 2.0t FSI engine to burn oil?  It burns 2qts a weeks and I see a lot of black smoke when I first accelerate.

5.I came across you DV diy while looking for a DIY on how to replace the turbo in my Tiguan.  I was told by a shop mine is bad, is it possible I only need a diverter valve?
