So I ended up using some 16 and 1x4 to make everything. It was pretty simple really.

A little update! Just over a year of ownership now and the car has come quite a long way. Probably not everyone's idea of a good build but I love everything about it.


Recently installed the spulen boost pipe kit. Picked it up for $147 shipped on USP's black friday sale. Talk about a DEAL!!!


Turbo muffler comparison



I noticed a decent spool increase. At least 200rpm sooner from what I saw in datalogs.



Install was relatively painless except for the TOP mounts. They took a little massaging to get on.


Console mount airlift controller



Trunk setup (temporary) also not complete in this picture. I mounted the compressor on the right side and manifold on the left.


New stance with my SSR GT10 installed. I love it!!

BIG update coming.

Recently replaced the clutch with Auto Union's 6 puck RSR upgrade. Still utilizing the DMFW. The clutch is very grabby and definitely makes stop and go traffic a little worse but it is worth it. Said to hold 550tq+

I've also got a parts pile that is ready to be utilized.
TTE420
RS4 Injectors
165 FPRV
Runner flap delete
Fluidampr
Relentless Tuning 3.5" downpipe
Snow Performance W/M kit
Eurodyne tuning with Frank Mabo
Torqbyte PM3
DW65V LPFP

I'm aiming for around 400whp on this setup. Going to tune for as much ethanol as the injectors will allow. I will have dual maps so I can run straight 91 octane as well.

Will update with pics as soon as the tear down starts.

Let me know if you have any issues with that fuel pump, I'm also looking at it too. It's my understanding the controller doesn't need to be replaced on the Golf R until very high power levels.

Research showed the fuel pump module shares the same part number as the GTI. I was worried about overheating and the PM3 seemed like the bulletproof solution.

Ok, numbers are in. I went back to the same dynapack I used before.
40% ethanol and 1000cc water/meth



I spoke with the dyno owner and he assured me that the calibrations were the same as my stage 2 run (UM fully loaded 313whp/368tq). Say what you want about how high or low the numbers are, 140whp gained over my k04 stage 2 file is IMPRESSIVE to say the least.

455.9whp and 444.3 tq.
Frank Mabo is an absolute genious.
