Changed the cornering lights to led (3000k). Passenger side was a pain with the wiper fluid reservoir in the way. Best comparison on what it looked like before is that tiny amber bulb near the led strip. EVs don’t get fogs so I’m quite happy with the color choice. We’ll see what other little things I can change to my liking.

CRC turbo and intake valve cleaner sevice @6k miles. Oil change tomorrow. Was pretty uneventful, no white smoke, no strong smells. Drove smoothAF on the interstate after heat soaking.

Next time if you want, you can skip going through your turbo by pulling off the line at the throttle body that goes to your brake booster.

I think the most effective way is to remove your MAF-sensor and inject it through this hole and it will go straight to the intake valves.
That's how I do it.

There is no MAF sensor. The 1.6t uses a Map sensor in the middle of the intake manifold.

Not really, as the brake booster line isnt connected to the intake manifold, it has its own electric vacuum pump sitting on the front side of the engine/transmission. Easiest way if you have a catch can is to the port on the intake manifold itself, just fill the can, and rev it up.

It is to the throttle body, pop that line off and in she goes through the vacuum nipple.

Emptied the catch can @6k miles. About the same amount as @3k miles. Dman this catch can is doing its job.

I've heard of people putting in an oil catcher, does it really save your engine in the long run? I'm not overly car savy but I'm looking for ways to save my Kona for a long time by keeping up with maintenance and machinal repairs. I do keep up with regular oil changes, do you have to change your oil more or less with a catcher in?

I would hope so. I saw this GTI on youtube with a crap ton of carbon deposits just @10k miles. The can was a very easy install, takes about 5 minutes to take off incase you want to take the car in for warranty stuff.
