so today was a big day! after 8 months of riding dirty my b5 is legal with current tags :) now for the bad, i finally got the CEL off which is way i could finally pass emissions and get my tags but its still not running right. its a 1.8t with 162k like i said the CEL is off and all the codes had been cleared but when i stomp on the throttle is starts the lug and shutter pretty bad over 4k? it hasnt thrown a light or any codes? plugged it into the VAG COM and when you force the throttle body adaptation it throws 2 faults, throttle body fault in basic settings and throttle actuator lower stop not reached. but still no CEL? is it time for a new throttle body? would a bad t body explain the lugging and shuttering under throttle?

also everytime i shift my engine feels like its jumping 3 feet in the air. i was told its most likely the snub mount is shot? i feel like everyone offers their own version of the snub mount, which one should i go with? are they all the same?
