Keep up the good work I enjoy following your build

Yea the billet 034 are a pretty penny but I'm sure when it comes down to performance they are a great piece. If you're looking at something that well made check out VWR motor and trans mounts as well. Cheers.

Thanks I just ordered a few bits and pieces that are going up as soon as I receive them.

HPA75a puck just got here and my refresh kit for dogbone is on the way. Gonna knock out 2 birds with one stone. I'm excited to see what a difference this makes.

Nice! I went ahead and ordered the street density mounts they'll be here tomorrow but I won't have the new hardware till mid next week. :-/ a billet Dogbone is next but I'll probably keep my ECS insert with OEM mounts. I don't want to drop the subframe to replace those till I can do the Tyrol deadest kit. As it is I don't have any issues and I'm afraid dropping it will create them. Can't wait to hear what you think of the new setup though!

I want the deadset kit for the rear and front I can already hear some subframe knocking, but I just can't justify spending 250 bucks on some aluminum collars and bolts. I know it's going to get to one point where I will no longer be able to bear the noises and I will buckle and get them, but for now I can spend 250 else where maybe get a water meth kit. Good luck with the mounts you will love them. It's a great upgrade over OEM and there is barely any diffeence in nvh if any at all.

You should get the 034 kit. It has all the required bolts. It's around 180 on modded euros with their 5% forum discount code

I read a thread debating whose kit is best and I believe that most people vote for the Tyrol kit based on the fact that they were first to the game, and have proven to have excellent customer service for a "marginal" price difference. But I believe that the materials in the 034 kit are better suited to fight corrosion. Not sure which is really "better" but IMO if you have the clunk then you can't go wrong with either kit!

I don't think corrosion is the biggest factor. You want the bushing to be softer than the metal on each side which is why I vote for tyrolsport vs a billet bushing.

Haven't even looked at other kits. The only other one I knew of was CTS but with my shitty experience with their downpipe fitment I don't want to buy CTS anything again.

I'll have to do some research on the 034 kit.

I'm pretty sure you've never led me down the wrong path. So I'm going to get Tylorsport but not without looking at 034's stuff. Good information right here. Thanks guys.

We no longer carry 034 products. Decided to no longer carry their product line.

We sell a bunch of the CTS kits with no issues.

I want to give CTS another shot I really do but I've heard good and bad as there is the same with every parts manufacturer but the bad outweigh the good for me concerning CTS and I wish I would have done some research prior to purchasing their DP I would have opted for a different brand. But thank you for the bump still love Moddedeuros you guys have done nothing but right in my book.

I am planning on getting a protune/etune. How much better is your Freektune compared to the COBB OTS? Is it night and day difference? Butt dyno gains? Did you send logs and have everything dialed in?

It's night and day honestly. The car drives/feels smoother, power-band is also a bit different and just overall, it drives different. I can definitely feel the gain from OTS stage 2 vs. my Freektune stage 2. I'm actually upset that I didn't do this as soon as I got the accessport lol. The whole thing is great too at least through Freektune it is. Justin responds quickly to all emails and he will answer all your questions about the logs you send over. I would recommend a custom tune to anyone running a Cobb Ap.

Awesome! Did you notice a progressively better tune as you exchanged your logs and got updated maps? Do you feel the tune is still "safe" while adding power? Any knock that you've seen via the AP? The price is right at $150!

So actually it was a bit backwards for me. I felt the OTS Cobb stage 2 was unsafe my trim levels were off I had knock through all 4 sensors. With the freektune I feel like my car is much safer, I mean he asked specifically what mods I have on my car by name brand, what elevation I'm running at and what I would like to achieve and is dialing it in just to that. I wanted more power, a good launch control and I got just that. As far as the map getting progressively better I'm not sure if I can persay feel that. I can only purely say that my car feels great and it runs way better on the custom map. I've seen some random knock in my 3rd cylinder during a wot pull but that could be mechanical noise from the motor because it comes and leaves so quickly. I'm waiting for my new map because he wanted to address that specifically with a new map to see if it was something with the tune or just some mechanical noise the sensor is picking up. The price is definitely right at $150.
