I wish i could do better on my deals but seems like my stuff is hard to sell then all of a sudden once its gone everyone wants to go for it. Happened to both turbo kits and happening with this AWD setup that Im going to loose on big time. If someone wants a real good deal on it and is serious PM me offered the same deal to Ryan and its good. even if you are not dsg and dont plan on it you can sell the parts and make out, i have someone that wants the wavetrac already and the mech unit is def worth a few pennies as well

t3 5530 > vband 5858 > t4 divided 6262 > t4 divided ?

i really wish i would have just gone BT from the jump. i'm glad i skipped k04. but it's the multiple build iterations that drive the price up, and idk anyone who's swapped more parts than JR and Ryan.

I feel. I went fbo > k04 > f23t > ATP gt3076r-wg > CTS gtx3076r but I still don't come close to those guys. Go all out the first time kids. Leave lots of headroom in your setup.

Yea I dumped a lot of $$ early and went through all the stages but i do all of my own work.

went from k03 to k04 to Loba LO4xx to gtx3071 custom on cts manifold now changing that to custom top mounted turbo. aside from all other mods

Once K04 it was all about every HP increasing bolt on possible, suspension/wheels/tires for traction, 2 brake kits with rear upgrade, various intake setups, methanol tanks/jets and tuning (basically where Bowers is at now stretching the limits of a methanol K04). As soon as I went big turbo the bank account drained but that's because I went for the fully built long block (because I can't help myself), custom FMIC, custom exhaust, intake, turbo kit, new meth setup, port injection, TB hardware, and now powdercoating gone wild. I know it's been about 1.5 years but I'm almost there. After I figure out inspection, I'm building my 02Q with all new OE hardware, Darkside braces and ARP case bolts, DSS axles, swapping out the rear ST XTA springs for Swift stiffer springs, powdercoating my rusted rear control arms, installing a rear diffuser and front splitter, having my bumper shaved with the Jetta sportline lower grill and by then the engine will be broken in for my first synthetic oil change and we are on to Torqbyte Tuning and final dyno tune.
Well im putting you at having a 70k GTI
JR with a 60k GTI
I prob had 55k in upgrades and repairs. i also stop counting at 20k in upgrades/repairs. al this includes cost of car.


in other news. i have a TDI Touareg....they want to give me at least $35k for it. i paid like $20k-ish ...so thats awesome

Lets see, if i did it all one go around:

Turbo/boltons: 7k
Engine: 2k
Trans: 3k
Suspension: 3k
Brakes: 500
Wheels: 2k
Interior: 3k
Exterior: 3k

I think that's everything.

What's the payout if you keep it? TDI Touaregs are legit...

That's race car money right there lol. I'd take the money and run, maybe new one when they come out

Idk about 60k either I know my wiring harness I'm in like 1500 at the minute and that is harness alone no boost control or vacuum pump.

Got 14k for my tdi cup. It was basically perfect condition still but I ended up with something fun for the wife. 2014 S6 found one black pearl metalic with black ops package and driver assistance, only 8600 miles when I picked it up. Checked the LC counter to see how much it was beat on, 0 launches. Just flashed it Uni stage 1+, 530hp and 560tq. Also put black rings on it as well, she needs to secede what color wrap and will get some spacers to flush the wheels

Love the car gas mileage is half the tdi though, and the auto cruise in stop and go is scary as hell will need to get used to that
