first off.. the intake isn't going to help you improve gas mileage and/or power. vw is pretty good at making their motors efficient. it sounds like what you are trying to say is your transmission isn't shifting? if thats the case, don't worry about fixing the motor, you need to fix the transmission. if the tranny was shifting then the motor wouldn't be overheating.
