    hey mate there is a how-to on how to do the mod pretty straight forward but thats on a mk4! but would have thought the same would apply to the mk5 i dont think it gives you loads more BHP but make the engine more responsive

    It's just the same as the mk4 how to.

    I would wear gloves to protect your knuckles and forget the screwdriver, I used a sharp knife
