killer, awesome to hear that. I actually really like my R IC, and it seems to boost really well for what it is and the performance/speed mods that I have.

I always wondered how the boost would change +/- upgrading to a better IC. do you notice any induced lag before the power? what do you think the change would be like for someone like me with my set up?

With the stock GTI intercooler I was seeing 28psi now with the Neuspeed I'm seeing 26.5 psi but I have to log to double check that. As far as lag there is none in fact it is the opposite I feel it spools slightly quicker. Is it worth it on stock turbo over your already installed R IC? Probably and with a ko4,F23 or bigger absolutely. For anyone still running the stock GTI intercooler I think it is worth it as well between the couple hundo the R IC will cost you and then the install of a stock location IC.

interesting, cool to hear your input. dumb question, but is lower psi a good thing? I was lucky and got my R used and installed for $395. otherwise I was really looking at SPM or Neuspeed. both would be about the same cost wise as the SPM is cheaper upfront but cost a bit more to install since it is middle mount.

I still dont know which is the better of the two, SPM vs Neuspeed as far as performance. Id probably go Neuspeed because of fitment and quality.

ECU can adjust boost for requested tq or could be I have a slight boost leak but I doubt it. SPM is straight garbage only stock location IC I would ever buy is the IE or Wagner

My 42dd exhaust is straight aluminized no cat no res. I loved it with the ko4 but now with the stage 3 it is wayyyy too much. Just stupid loud the whole car vibrates like a purpose built race car. I am going to add 2 mufflers after the Y.

Quick update:

Car is running perfectly with the APR stage 3. It is much smoother than ko4 no throttle hiccups or flutter when WOT at low rpm in higher gears. Full boost @3600 and boost spike @4000. It pulls so hard all the way to 7200. My exhaust is much better now with my back seats up and the hatch shelf in. I would still like to get 2 resonators welded in after the Y. I think that would tone it down just a little bit which it could definitely use. The turbo whistle and jet engine noises is much more pronounced with the bigger turbo.

Is the APR stage 3 that much better. Really thinking of upgrading from k04 to Stage 3 or stage 3+ this winter. I know its around 50 hp more than K04, but is it really usable?
