I never saw a build, just the finished result. Saved to my computer because it was the first tucked GTI I've seen.

probably because there are several varying gauges of wire. Look for a used harness on ebay or car-part.com and splice it in. 2 harnesses = 2x the length

Agreed on that part lol.....I think an AWE intake would cover that...or a catch can mounted in that spot.

The first tuck I did, most wires had to be extended about 3 feet. With the spare harness I picked up it should be a lot easier, only one splice on each instead of two

The AWE intake, yes, it's very sexy, but I scored this APR Carbonio for only 100 bucks.. To good of a deal to pass up. Guess I could buy the AWE and sell this for 200 or something..
