I do most at home, in my garage, or at my family's shop (They work on basically anything with a motor). All work is my own with the exception of what FFE did and the tune. I will need body work at some point and I dont do that either, way easier to pay someone that does it everyday.

And also thanks, stay tuned for more coming. this is some prep for what is ahead. Trying to clean it up a bit more.

It actually grips quite well with the 255s warm, pulls like an animal. DSG will make it even faster.

What are your thoughts on heatshields and heat tape? I noticed you used quite a bit of it on the last build.

I also really liked what you did with the heatshield right under the intake tube. What did you use for that? It looks OEM (less the giant white tube).

Not worth the time would be a crazy amount of fab. Maybe if you had a 100% drag car but mine will still be a streetable car.
