I honestly love the little inserts. I have the same ones. I don't understand why it would be left unfilled from the factory. The little things👌.

I like the way this thread is taking off so far. Intake, suspension, stage 1. Now you have to save up for a downpipe and go stage 2. Also may I suggest getting a custom tune. Through one of the many E tuners. I have a Freektune but I've also heard nothing but good things about Stratified. Definitely the best bang for your buck moving forward for power gains is downpipe and stage 2.

Next is GFB DV+, then I was going to start looking into a CBE. My cousin has a downpipe he has off his old GTI that he traded away he said he would let me snag for cheap. After all of that I was looking into an E-tune and have already been messaging Stratified about one!

Awesome man DV+ definitely worth every penny. I like the direction you are going. Cheers and stage 2 especially an E-tune will put a smile on your face. Enjoy it.

What diameter exhausts are you looking at? Catted or non catted DP?

Found the beluga racing CBE and have read some good stuff about it as well. It's a 2.5in CBE with 4in tips. I believe my cousins old DP is a 3in catless and the brand name is ATP

They skyrocket the price when they're out of stock so no one will buy it. On their website they have it for $370ish
