    Anyone have issues installing subframe collars with Super Pro rear bushings?

    I'm installing a VWR front control arm bushing kit that is actually a re-branded Super Pro kit but I cannot get the rear bushings/housings to play nice with my ECS subframe locking collars.

    DSG LSD Install: Diff Bearing Preload Procedure?

    As title states, I'm in search of the procedure using shims in the trans housing to properly set the differential bearing pre-load.

    Anyone Replace Balance Shafts?

    If so, any advise on doing this? It looks pretty straight forward. I've done the chains on my motor so I'm loosely familiar. I'm not having any issues commonly related to these going bad. I just took the head off my engine due to an exhaust manifold stud that broke off in the head on the #1 cyl...

    Should I replace water pump during de-carb?

    I plan on doing my second de-carb soon and I'm wondering if I should preemptively change the water pump while I got the manifold off. My 10' GTI has what I believe is the factory water pump. I bought the car with 28k and I have never had any leaking or other issues. At 115k now and I do plan on...

    Just curious if there are any K04 specific turbo outlet pipe options other than the Neuspeed and CTS options. If not, which one are people running and what are your experiences?

    As title states, I'm installing a set of replacement coil-overs on a daily driven, non-tracked mk6 GTI and I'm not sure what is needed (if any) in the way of sway bar end links for a fairly low, 24" FTG stance. I'm replacing a set of blown WRD coils that came with their own end links for the...

    Has anyone ran a K04 on stock catback setup? I'm thinking of going K04 this spring. I currently have a stg1 APR tune, intake and ARM FMIC with an SPM street TBE (without a cat). I ran the stg1 tune with just an intake and downpipe before putting on the SPM TBE setup and I didn't notice any gains...

    LC2i & Dynaudio: Where to tap

    Should I tap into the pre-amp speaker wires coming off of the headunit (RNS510) or tap into amplified speaker lines from the Dynaudio amp under the driver's seat? I'm thinking off of the head unit would possibly give a cleaner signal. Thoughts?

    New type of LED tail light?

    Or just tinting.....? The right and left cars seem to have the turn signal tinted the same color as the rest of the tail light. I also like how they aren't as dark as the middle car. These would be perfect on a TR Mk6..
