Is this basically what you had done with the cat welded in? Same location?

Thanks for the info.

Thanks. Yes basically that is what I did. For being stage 2 it was the best move to add some back pressure to the K03 since going 3 inch system all the way.

Thanks for the info.

Did you get it welded in at a shop? If so, do you remember roughly how much it cost? I've got a local exhaust and can't imagine him wanting more than $30-40 to do it since I'll have it done before I install it in the car.

I cant believe its been over 6 months since I have updated this thread. I haven't done much though. If anything I went backwards by removing the lightweight battery and the wife did some minor damage to one of my wheels. I recently went to FixxFest 12 and did some runs.

Here was my best run.

Considering how humid it was and the DA being over 1600, I was ok with it :-)

Here is a cool slow motion video of me warming up the tires. Shot by Sheldon Willis.

Went back to the track last week. Struggled with my launches which cost me getting into the 12.5 territory on at least one of my runs. Still happy she can lay down the power though.

Thanks man. Since I had the DSG fixed the car is running fine but havenít taken it back to the track.

Only two things I have done to the car since is replaced the headliner and flash the ECU for the latest APR update (which I am sure is out of date again...lol)
