Very cool so it has infinite adjustability between full open and full close? Allowing you to "customize" your exhaust note a bit more.

partially open just sounds like a leak, point of the cut out is to make the exhaust as free flowing as possible.

Good point I didn't think about it sounding like a leak! But I do understand the goal of minimizing restriction though.

Started to write you several times now but I know my wife won't approve any more mods... Hope someone takes advantage of this I'm eager to see what the next stages of your build bring

So its been almost forever since I posted an update here. Bunch of things going on good and bad.

Good have a new DD MKV TSI with a CTS gt3071 kit, Unitronic DSG and stg3 HO setup. Bad it was leaking from the RMS and it gaveway. and had to reaplace it, used an I'abed one I bought for the mk6 and ordered another for the mk6. Also made it an mk5.5 with an RNS315, MK6 Steering wheel and a can bus upgrade. Bad on this car is flywheel was cracked in multiple spots but at least I was able to steal the one off the mk6.








As for the mk6 blew the dsg up a few months ago so working on that this winter. THe gears shredded, clutches are fine. Tons of power and good dsg tune and its where Im at. So a few photos of whats going on and also sent the hot parts off to Swain tech for coating. If you are interested a 6262 turbo or a bunch on awd pars let me know I will sell the awd dsg for a good price and you can make it a good awd one using your fwd one and my case, would have the wavetrack LSD in it.

Feeler - AWD swap parts I have stocked up for the MKV, will go to a good cause (mk6). Good trans case 40k miles AWD DQ250 with T-case and wacetrac (you would need to swap in your DSG gear set, was going to do this on my mkv [clutch packs are good still], would come with new clutch cover), rear subframe and knuckles with basically new bearings and abs sensors, bracket to the engine for tcase, passenger front axle new within 500miles, rear axles (one is no good you can possibly rebuild it or use it as a core, outers cv is no good), ABS module, cross over brake line (brand new), I have the driveshaft brackets for the tunnel as well (brand new).

What you would need - Haldex, drive shaft, one rear axle, gas tank and pump, should be able to get all of that for ~$1k.

I am figuring no mech unit with the trans at the moment but we can talk, it will only work properly on Unitronic stg3 engine software so you can swap you mech unit in or swap to Uni or w/e we can work out the final details.

Buy this and I will help code and wire (diagrams etc).

Thanks! At the moment I'm not planning on going AWD but I do want to. I think I'm going to stop at LSD and BT then pick up the MK8 R and start playing with it. But buying parts that come with coding help makes it an appealing idea
