On the 8p the design of the oem breather is just a plastic line from the gearbox bolted to the side of the engine cylinder head with a cap on top. The oil squirts out and runs down the side of the engine and box. Not only does it make a mess you are also lossing dsg oil.

The 8v design is slightly better it has a canister on the end of the line with a cap on top, clamped to the air box. But I quickly found out the oil was squirting out and covering my ECU and wiring harness in oil.

So a couple months ago I designed my own breather kit. It is a bolt on DIY job and works really well.

We ran into some issues with the length of the line on the 8p and resolved it by using a genuine 8v breather line. Recently we have again revised that and now use silicon hose.

A hat-trick of posts (perhaps in tribute to Lucas Moura!).

 

I haven't noticed any DGS oil pissing out of my FL and I haven't been preserving it for the museum either. As we sit here tonight, the engine bay is probably the cleanest part of the car.

Lol I did 3 posts as it effects all platforms.

Some suffer with this some dont. It depends on how hard you drive your car.

I have driven it like I stole it from 1,000 miles on. At 10,000 miles my overall mpg is 16. How much harder can I be?

Tends to happen mostly when you use launch control, mine spewed oil all over the airbox and surrounding parts when I took my FL car for it's first Santa Pod session last year. Not been doing it so much lately so I guess my DSG oil level needs checking/topping up.


now driving a 'Daytona Lite' FL car.
