Some issues can result at low oil pressure when warm. In early VW 16v engines, warn intermediate shaft bearings will cause low oil pressure once the oil gets good and hot. In this case, I don't know the engine well enough yet to try and pin point the issue.
And so as not to thread jack, Vinny, I'm curious about your LWFW chatter. I supposedly have a LWFW in my car as well from the PO and it certainly makes some interesting noises. Could you PM me with a little more info, I'd like to go over that with ya a bit if you don't mind?
