Flipstah's Rising Blue GTI

A frequent Vortex guy, I was informed of MK6 forums and thought I'd check it out. I'd like to share what has happened with my Golf R so far.

First shot when I got it,





Years later, it's now on:



APR Stage 2+
42DD TBE, non-res, cat-less
OEM LED tails
H&R Sport Springs
Volk LE37 19in ET35
HPA Haldex Competition controller

Dyno result:

Thanks! Expect more this year, especially with the new exhaust mounted.

Nice ride! And love the plate lol.

Oh and if that privacy cover is getting in the way in the last pic you can hang it vertically behind the drivers seat by hooking the lifting loops onto those small pointless hooks on the b pillar. Assuming the R has them too.

I don't know if that's their intended purpose as my friends passat has them too. But heck it works!

Shenanigans this weekend! A bunch of us worked on the car and ta-dum!
Road trip this weekend and my tires were worn on the Rotiform so I swapped wheels with my buddy.

Air Lift Autopilot V2
Air Zenith OB2 Compressor
Air Lift Performance Front Struts/Rear Bags
Bilstein Rear Shocks

Still fiddling around with the optimal PSI but 60psi in the front is rough. 50front/30rear seems to work for me.

Going to get it aligned tomorrow.

The trunk isn't pretty yet but it will be soon. Zipties work for now haha.

Less than a week after the bags were installed, a bunch of us Dubbers drove >2k km's to Leavenworth, WA for a Pacific Northwest car meet weekend.

The car rode fine and the setup handled beautifully, especially on Chuckanut Drive.
I need my fenders rolled!

Have to edit some photos but I'm waiting for the designated photographers for our trip to post some.

I was averaging 7.5-8L/100kms, which was awesome for the power I get.
