Just to give some tips about oil.You may find that due to running super slick synthetic oils...... that this increases the vapor/PSI in block.
A solution is to run conventional SAE oil with more frequent oil changes.
You HAVE TO use Synthetic oil because of the many reasons in new cars.
-One and most important reason is Temperature. Any oil except synthetic will basically cook in engine. Why is that , bacuse those engines get oil temperature very high sometimes 600-700 F ( Specially in climate where you are in summer time), Only synthetic oil will not cook on this temperature, any other will.
That way they had problems at beginning of 2000 with oil sludge using regular conventional oil.
-Other reason is that materials in new engines has to have lot of ZINC in oil to be lubricate properly. Look those TDI with camshaft problems using not proper oil.
So do not be smarter then VW engineering and use 5w40 Synthetic oil 502-505.00-505.01 VW spec and this is the only right way to go.
One more improtnat thing is driving those cars. Specially turbo engines. Those engines are high performance engines and they can not be drive low RPM. You have to drive those cars I can say kind of aggressive to not get problems.Driving low RMP it will built Carbon all over the intake.
I get this question , well I drive 90% city driving with lot of stop and go?
2 times a week you can take your car on HWY for 10 miles aggressive drive and blow this stuff away.
This is what I use for all my customers and my cars and have excellent results, GERMAN oil with lot of ZING in it:
