Nah, K04 gets up there fairly quick, unlike Stage 2. You would know but you refuse to drive my car silly haha. Its fine, save your K04 virginity to the woman who has been waiting for it (your car ).

Today i finally made and upgrade I have been needing since i dropped in the s3 FMIC.

I picked up a good set of boost hoses from AWE and their S3 Turbo outlet pipe. The beauty of the S3 TOP is that it eliminates the need for that ridiculous coupler:

I had noticed some oil on my belly pan coming off the TOP. If there is oil there is definitely air.


The AWE hoses come with an optional coupler... but we dont need all that.

Installed on the s3 TOP:

Here is a good comparison between the stock hoses and AWE's. This is coming off the cool side of the FMIC into my Nuespeed TBP:

Response:

Well i had been noticing that my boost starts falling off earlier than the usual 5k rpm. I would spike around 17-18lbs and it would hold until around 4k. Id loose about a lb or 2 before 5k.

Well this was definitely the fix. Boost held solid on a few pulls at 17lbs. Good to maintain the power for another 1000 revs. Should be good for K04 power (coming soon )

Moral: If your are dropping in a new FMIC make sure you get new charge pipes and hoses. Youll be happy later

Finally got my APR K04 installed with the brilliant V3.1 software.

Firstly a huge thanks to APR Europe who helped tremendously in working around my schedule. They were awesome. If you are in Deutschland, Austria, France, Switzerland I cannot stress enough to make a trip to see these folks in southern germany. They 100% believe in customer service. Really echos the same experience I had with APR in Opelika, AL

They picked me up at the bus station in Ochsenhausen DE in my car. The tech who did the install was driving and because I dont speak much Deutsch I just asked if there were any problems. He just said: "No no; no problems at all."

Firstly, the car just sounded better... even at idle. When i finally got on it, i felt like a chicken; i wouldnt go WOT because it was just so sadistically fast for what I am use to. First and second gear are really quite controlled all things considered; third is still just a monster; and fourth... well it use to be that if i needed fourth to beat someone i was going to lose... not so much anymore.

The acceleration is so smooth and controlled and the around town driving is so calm you forget what is underneath you foot. Hit the throttle and it just come unglued.

Beautiful tune... Lots of fun.

Great work APR. More pics to come

Decided to perform some simple but important maintenance. We are suppose to change our fuel filters every 40k miles. Being that im coming up on 35k in the old girl i figure... why not?

Plus I was bored.

Easiest replacement there is... even more than an air filter. It is simply one Phillips screw and some thumb muscles to pull the clips...

Oh; and some gas in your face. You will get wet on this ride.

The old filter. When i shook the fuel out of it; no shit it looks like chocolate milk

After my buddy upgraded to the TTRS BBK for his MKVI i decided to buy his OEM + kit for my own golf.

-Drilled rotors all around
-SS lines up front
-Tyrolsport bushings
-Hawk HPS pads
-ATE DOT4 brake fluid

After install (on a very dirty car):

On a clean car:

Impressions:
HUGE improvement over stock. I had put on some stoptech street pads back in the winter (which were basically oem level brake dust machines). After I went K04 brake power was definitely lacking.

The brakes engage early and there is zero mushing. You can step on them and the feel doesnt change. While not a BBK by any means it is an extremely beneficial upgrade. The petal feel is twice as good as stock. HPS pads produce some decent brake dust but not as bad as stoptech IMO. Fair sacrifice for the brake power which is also an improvement over stoptech.

Did alot of stop and go in 85 degree weather on and off the autobahn and it felt fantastic the whole way through. The slotted rotors will really help keep down the heat when i visit Nordeschleife soon
