100 Oct pic.



At this point I study:
-Get a DSG reflash in order to disable the kick down & faster shifting

-Water meth if my route eventually wouldn't include a bigger turbo, still seems to work fine with it as well. http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=41530

So much for leaving it stock.

Looks like you're off to a good start.

That hood liner... I read something about that the other day, that's the first time I've seen a photo of one. I suppose your original one was sagging?

Thanks.
Yes , it took me forever to start altering the car. I guess I was pre-set thinking it was about to be the same like the Corrado was. This GTI is more rewarding in that matter, and not so much love to die & hate as the 'Rado.(Money pit)But:what a car!!
As for the hood liner, I nicely told the dealer and they order and installed days after, it was very saggy and didn't came with that aluminum foil look like part on the pic.

Hows the W.A.L.K?? Are there any NVH?
I am considering it before i go K04.
Did you end up getting the AWE CBE as well?

The W.A.L.K kit is great (less wheel spin),it is a great compliment to the BFI soft insert(less wheel hop),the traction improves drastically with this two. Since you will have more power, I would definitely consider it as well. As for the AWE CBE not yet, it is on my list.
