What did you do to your MK6 2.5 today?

SliMbo2.5

Passed Driver's Ed
Installed a Spulen vacuum pump delete kit and a USP intake to get rid of that stupid engine cover. Also allowing access to the coils and plugs which I'll be doing sometime this week.

Installed the Unibrace UB today. Gotta love how clean the underside of our cars are here in California.
What improvements or changes have you noticed with that upgrade? I just changed my front and rear endlinks to Moog ones, (they are bigger than stocks) and changed the bushings on the rear sway bar. I definitely felt the car is more planted now.

I have the same endlinks. They seem pretty beefy. The ubrace definitly helped the car feel more solid. My main reason for going that route was I have a steep driveway and after adding the swaybars the car creaked like an old wooden ship coming and going from my driveway. The UB made a huge difference with that. There are some creaks still but nothing like it was. Otherwise it did seem to make a difference in handling and the car seems more solid on sharp curves but it's hard to tell if it's just my imagination. Plus with all that was just done the car handles like its on rails. I would recommend it if you can find one for a good price. I bought mine for $250 and it was in great shape. If you have the stock resonator then you will need the spacer kit. Mine barley fits even with the spacers and the resonator does hit on occassion on really bad bumps but nothing worth worrying about. I just hear a tap once in a while when I hit a really deep pothole.
