is this on the 12v TT engine.

Main thing is to make sure 100% that there's no particls left from the process of cleaning and derusting. As quite a few 24V owners have found, blast media can hag arround especialy in the PCV ventialtion chamber..

Snoops is going 24V  

There is a warning post at the top of this section about this.

You must make sure the parts are completely clean after the work as Rob says.

Take no chances mate.
