MK6\\\ 1slow_gti Guys SLOW build thread ///GTI

Hey, name is Max and this is my story and slow build thread.

Even though I can own any mod friendly car and owned cars from honda to bmw, I was never a big VW guy as i could simply not find the "thing" that i liked about it. My Wife and i were initially looking for a Evo X Mr due to us both wanting a automatic "cool paddle shift able" car. But quickly that was off the list after reading so many horror stories about the sst. We made our way over to a local VW dealership to look at a Touareg as a car to settle (we also have a 2 year old) with and get out of the modding scene but, couldnt even go past a mk6 gti that was just sitting there looking pretty. Just something about a mk6 that caught my attention. still dont know what but im in Love! We drove home In this 2012 CG DSG 4dr 37,000 miles on the clock and a 1 owner. And now its a new money pit


Feel free to comment criticize and give me pointers with this whole VW thing

Well I sat down today and start the wiring for the air set up. I think I nailed it?

My kit was used so it looks like previous owner went with his own imagination. Power comes from a 8g wire that runs into a distributor block. From there I have the relay hooked up and also the red power line to the ecu itself. Looks ok so far?



I hope you like the rug and old couches lol this is at my in laws. Don't hate haha.
