So I removed all the coil packs and cleaned them with electrical cleaner, also cleaned the plugs. Used carb cleaner to clean all the oil residue from the plug wells. Put the plugs back in and it cracked up nicely but had a rough idle (I guess from the little bit of oil that went through the plug holes) i drove it around and it smoothed out.

There is a loud ticking from the motor, possibly the lifters? What oil is recommended? I run shell Rotella t6 full synthetic in my vw. Use to run Mobil 1. Would one of those be good? 5w20? Or does someone have another idea on what the ticking may be? I might upload a video later so you can hear.

Also I hear a sucking screech sound occasionally on acceleration. Any ideas?

Thanks guys.
