1FlyGTI Air build

I have been kicking the idea of going air for some time now, I decided to finally pull the trigger. I am going with the following set up.

-Airlift Performance front struts
-Airlift Double bellow rears
-5 Gallon Airlift tank
-Analog VU4 management
-1/4 air lines
-Dual 444c compressors
-Power supply for 2 compressors
- 1/4 SMC water traps

So let it begin:

5/17 I picked up an 5 gallon tank at SOWO.


6/5 My rear bags came in from ECStuning. I paid 345 shipped.




Next up is management pack...

Decided to change it up a bit. I decided on going with AirLift Slam series for the fronts. Stay tuned placing my order next week depending on funds. Cheers to all the other broke college students who build their cars. No mommy and daddy sponsorship here!

yeah it sucks but either way Airlift makes quality products and I am not too worried. I am going for a simple set up because I really hate technology. Its too advanced and always changing and I can't keep up.

Ran into a tiny set back...my car started to finally misfire at 48k miles stage 2. Time for new coil packs and spark plugs.
