Hopefully I'll be getting performance mods within a month. The forge blowoff is all about the woosh sound right? No gains or losses of any type? Looking to get apr stage 1, modshack or P-Flo intake, new springs/suspension, sway bar, some smaller things like you upgraded.
Stock suspension right now, but some coilovers and sway bars are in the works. And yes, the blow off valve is strictly for the sound, there is no gain or loss of any performance. A lot of people don't like them, but I love it. It's lots of fun...

Where did you get your wolfsburg centercaps from?

Haven't had a car to tune in several years, and I've got the bug again. Now I can't stop!!

Countdown to CAI, Downpipe, and Stage 2 Tune: 3 Days!!!

Carbonio Intake, APR Downpipe, and Stage 2 tune completed yesterday!

Wow, It's like a whole new car. Worth every penny that it cost and then some. Big thanks to the folks at O'Steen Motorsports in Jacksonville, FL. Super easy to work with and ready and willing to answer all of my questions. I'll post some pics soon!

LOL! Thanks for the song... I'll post a video and some more pics soon. Here's a quick cell phone pic of the engine bay after the Carbonio install for the meantime.

New Pictures!

Up on the ramps for it's first oil change, and to swap out the spring in the Forge BOV to accommodate the higher boost pressure after APR Stage 2 Tune, Carbonio Stage 1 & 2, and APR Downpipe.









Forgot to blur out my license plate... don't steal my identity!

Disconnected my Soundaktor over the weekend! What a simple mod, but what a huge difference. Interior noise is way down, and I can actually hear the turbo spooling up and the wastegate now. Shame on VW for such a pointless part...

Got a much needed wash done today, and added some horsepower... Sorry for the terrible cell phone pics!
