I believe you had mentioned in the thread that the stock setup coming out of the left side will provide a much stronger exhaust note than switching to the GTI style.

Van nice write up.

For the spoiler/lip mods, can you list all the options available for the 2.5?

Add this to the Turbo Kits? http://jdlautodesign.net/shop/vw-2-5l-turbo-kit/
Scott Youngblood already has it running with a UM tune. Dyno coming once the SRI is in.

couple people have but it's not really worth it. unless you get the tune during the sale. Again tuning an N/A car basically does nothing. What tune does in a Turbo car is increases factory turbo boost output and fuel timing which gives out more hp from factory engine. If you go higher stages 2+ it's upgrading more hardware etc bigger turbo and more hp.
