      Power, Reliability & Cost. When it come to extreme builds like the one you are planning on, you can only have two of these three. In your case it appears that cost is no object in order for you to...

      306hp from a 2.0T is awesome, as it the 7m 50.6s Nurburgring lap time. Honda makes silky smooth 4cyls so would be cool to get one that is crazy powerful as well. Of course, it's all relative now that...

      Spell check messed that up. It should be 6MT; as in six speed manual with a clutch pedal. I had a DSG MK1 TT and it was a brilliant transmission, but I got bored of it in a year and wanted to get a 3...

      Excellent point! Though if it has never been changed, it may already have punched through. As part of inspection, have the dealer or a shop (with permission from previous owner of course) check that....

      I am running the Milltek non-resonated catback (found it too quiet with the resonator) and absolutely love the sound. The combination of the exhaust and Schrick 268/264 cams make the car sound like...

      Below are boost curves for my wife's GTI. Assuming a TT should be more or less the same (unless your car is a TTS), it would appear you are chipped.

      Very cool. My 3.2 6MT coupe with 3/4ths tank weighed in at 3173lbs if I recall, with the OE 17" wheels. I know part of the difference is the RS engine weighs more than the 3.2. Then there is the half...

      Flew into NJ last month and spent a weekend working on the RS with my friend Bill. We replaced the sub-frame mount (aka torque arm insert) with a VW Motorsport unit and used the Tyrolsport Deadset...

      Congrats! Excellent choice - you will absolutely love the car. As for front brakes, stay with the stock hardware or go StopTech. I am running StopTech's 355mm BBK on my 3.2 and love it.

      Troy- If you run a 275 tire, I recommend a 9.5" wheel. This will support the tires better esp on track. Also, 275/30/19 or 275/35/18 are better options for ideal clearance and shave off the rear tab....

      Hi Troy. You've seen the 18x9 et46 Forgestar CF5's I was running on my TT at Laguna Seca. I plan to transfer them over to the RS and once the NT-05's wear out, will replace them with either RE-11's...

      This is a great picture. There is something about a clean, blacked out TT that is truly picturesque.

      Yes, it most definitely is. You can even just try the rear track springs with sport fronts to feel the change. My car rotates real easily now and there is no understeer to speak of.

      My experience with Magnaflow exhausts on my GTI VR6 and Z4M Coupe is that they are loud and drone on the highway. They only sound OK when WOT at higher rpms.

      I clicked on the post expecting to hate it but I don't. And for some strange reason I like it.

      Thanks. Was it the long downhill and heavy braking zone before the 90 degree left hander? I recall a lot of cars tend to lose braking there and overrun the corner ... insane track.
