      Without smoked lenses, would it make sense to drop the wattage down one step each for the rear turn and brake lights? Also, what do you think about going to 80w LED's for the reverse lights, assuming...

      Please post up if you can get everything to work cleanly. APR is selling an upgrade for many FSI/TSI cars, but they aren't using the standard higher output controller by the looks of it.

      How did the install go? Did the TTS run correctly with the TT-RS fueling components or did you have to alter the ECM programming?

      Has anyone tried the CMS brake cooling kit for the TT-RS? It is basically a much improved version of the factory 'scoop' system (vs a true ducted setup from the front bumper).

      Looks straight...

      The EVOMS intake for the R32 looks like it would work well for the TT-RS. Based on the pictures, it draws in cool air from the OEM location. It isn't 100% sealed, but a completely ducted and sealed...

      Forgot to answer the OP... OEM clutches can be a gamble with a tuned TT-RS and hard usage. Launch control and No Lift Shifting can quickly overheat the clutch, because there is some slippage...

      How are the new engine and transmission mounts doing? Any issues with excess vibration?

      The torque curve is perfect! I really wish the stock TT-RS could hold torque to red line like that... I know that the OEM's now build for that low rpm hit, but I personally would prefer a more...

      How is the SMF with the 2.5L 5 cylinder engine?

      I have a SMF/dual disc clutch ready to install, but have been hesitant to install... I would rather not have it sound like a diesel at idle from...

      Dyno time costs money and the TTRS market is small. I for one am glad that CTS is producing this range of parts for the TT-RS in the first place. Yes, I would love to see detailed before and after...

      I am happy with H&R springs on my TT-RS. Not up to the performance of the MSS kit, but did the job of removing wheel gap, without changing the ride significantly.

      Good luck with your build. I am...

      Thanks for the update, too bad those bushings didn't hold up. A couple of questions for you...

      1) Do you have a link to a build thread that you posted? I searched, but couldn't find one...
      2) Who...

      Which wheel did you test fit? The 8.5 has "FACE 1" which is going to be on the "flat" side, while the 9.5 has "FACE 2" which is going to be more concave. There could be a difference in brake...

      Sounds like the wheels will be good in the front, maybe minor rubbing of the rears on the inside of the fender (grind down tab). I can't speak to front brake clearance, as that depends upon the...

      Well, you pulled in at least one person from the TT Mk2 forum... I went through a similar situation with building up a Jeep for serious off roading/rock crawling about 10 years ago. It had my Jeep...

      Is GIAC going to release any dyno results of their LO500P tune? What would it take to convince you to take your car to an AWD dyno and post the full results? Who knows, maybe we can find a few people...

      How old was the accessory drive belt? That bolt doesn't look new, but I can't say that it is the factory bolt or not. I would guess that the belt is shifted over a bit and that a new one should run...

      Please let us know what you find out. It is a small community of TT-RS owners, so sharing information can be very important for other owners who run into a similar situation/fault.

      Thank you!

      I have to agree with cipsony on this one. First of all, a $9k+ bill to replace something that you had a short time before (i.e. a running TT-RS engine) is not fun. As a fellow TT-RS owner, I do have...
