Air Ride? Looks like a speedbump would rip the whole front end off that thing. Looks like a perty sweet ride.

Very Interesting car, even if you're selling your car can you make a Profile and document your car for prosperity.

Ill have to figure out how to do the profile thing. Not on here as much as I used to be. It is a precision pte5431e. Uses C2 manifold but everything else was me. The C2 kit wouldn’t work with the car on bags so figured out how to do a air-water intercooler.

I saw you posted your build on Vortex, not on this forum.

Appreciated the 2.5 so much more today, after removing the Intake Manifold from the Tiquan 2.0 TSI engine today. It took me a few hours to get the IM off.

It's more straight forward to drop the engine out of a Porsche 911 than taking off the Intake manifold on the 2.0 TSI, so much crap and VW connectors in a tiny space, the only good thing was no seized bolts as everything is torqued low.

If I'm in the mood, I'll try taking off the Turbo tomorrow. Using these great instructions.

Getting ready to go south, not doing anything major until we get back.

Replaced the battery in the 2nd Key FOB

Tightened the clamps on our new custom intake, after a forum member PMing me, he had a noise at the front of his car, they found the APR intake loose.


&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& &&&&

In February, I posted that I saw a MK6 GTI with with Center Exhaust and difuser tunnels on both sides in Daytona in January. I think this eBay item is it.

https://www.ebay.com/p/10-14-VOLKSWA...75.c100623.m-1

We run the original VW "Stomach" mid-muffler which is a big expansion chamber (not a perforated pipe) so any helmhotz tuning with the engine/exhaust manifold is terminated at this point, so changes to the length of the exhaust piping at the back should not affect the engine very much. We should be able to shorten the rear exhaust piping to fit the center exhaust setup. I'm surprised that the GTI guys have not picked up on this as there is no much helmholtz effect on the exhaust with turbo charging. Example: Focus RS, Civic Turbo, Veloster Turbo are all center exhaust with shorter piping. VW won't do this as they want to sell more Golf Rs.

As well, if we remove the rear suitcase muffler, it unblocks the area to the left and right of the spare tire compartment bulge. With the center muffler we can extend the difuser by adding a molding around and forward towards the suspension arm area.

In realitry, on road cars Difusers are mostly for looks you won't get more down force but by extending the difuser effect forward you clean up/control the dirty air under the car and can (if done properly) reduce high speed lift at the rear of the car and look cool as well. My Son approves!

BTW Those Rear Vents look cool and are functional, NOT like the Huge ones on the Civic Type R.

That is sweet. Pricey but I have always liked the center exhaust. I bought a sportster to cruise around the beach this summer so I have been focusing my attention there.
