ah, the law of unintended consequences strikes again! while the fancy stuff is nice, it is one of the hindrances of electronically controlled vehicles

comment Where is the fuel filter(s) located on a 2006 VW Golf?
I'm trying to get a frame of reference of the image. Is the filter near the fuel tank or is it in the engine compartment?

comment Clutch catches VERY high, is this bad?
@jcm I do not believe there will be any down-the-line problems. The variance in where the clutch grabs is wholly dependent on the levers in the clutch-pedal mechanism. Only if the levers that actually cause the clutch plate to engage got out of alignment with each other would the clutch plate not be engaged with the clutch pedal all the way out.

comment Engine revs high 5th gear manual transmission
@SeanReifschneider I had another thought, it might be if this is only happening in 5th gear that it is probably the transmission and not the clutch. My father's car had the 5th gear get 'spun out', where the 5th gear was worn down compared to the rest of the gears causing slippage. He took it to Honda and had just that gear replaced for much less than a new transmission.

@Ukko I agree that the ratio reported is generally not the boosted ratio, I believe the ratio will change when under boost since the amount of air in the cylinder will be greater before compression, hence higher compression ratio. I think :-)
