      The 340i XDrive is intriguing. I'm curious to see how it reviews and if they made the steering any better. It does have what is probably the best engine made and aftermarket tuning via jb4 is on...

      You should be paying more attention to the power under the curve and gains over stock. Comparing both companies stage 1 93 file it looks like UM gained 59HP/103TQ vs APR at 51HP/88TQ. Given that the...

      VW has always been behind the others (STI, EVO, etc) when it came to all out performance and the argument has always been it sounds better (R32), has a better interior and is more of a daily driver....

      Agreed. The review is saying about the same thing the other reviews over the years have always said about the STI/EVO vs the R/R32 which is that the VW is much more of a compromise compared to the...

      From that list I'd say it's the HPA motor mount. I wasn't a fan and had the stock put back in with a Neuspeed insert. Huge improvement over stock and barely any added NVH.

      Plenty of people reused the stock DMF with no issues though with 36k on the unit it may be wise to replace. I won't use the RSR kit, or using the TTRS pressure plate, as there's been more than one...

      This is often overlooked but will no doubt pay dividends in the reviews. True performance tires on the base model or track tires on light weight FORGED wheels right from the factory. Say what you...

      Have you ever owned an AWD car with a center dif and LSD's front and/or rear? If you had you wouldn't be saying that. I've owned Mitsu's and Subaru's in the past and there's no doubt that those AWD...

      HPA used to be blue but I believe they changed that a while back. If it is an HPA they etch a serial number on them though. It's on one of the sides of the housing. Doesn't look like you can see it...

      Do you have a VCDS cable? If so I'd love to see MAF, timing, timing retard per cyl, intake air temp, boost specified and boost actual from about 2000 - redline at WOT.

      I'm not sure you can get to the lower bolt with it on without using a wobble adapter. Even then I'm not sure there's enough space for the wobble. I've always taken that off but left the sensor on.

      Hard to say without knowing what timing is being called for on each tune. They could have simply left the timing stuff alone, which is likely given they only tap in to two sensors. A quick VCDS log...

      I always joke that I could feel the difference pulling out of my parking lot after install but I could. I spent a lot of time in rear bias AWD cars prior to the R. Maybe knowing how a more rear drive...

      I've never been in a situation on the street where having ESC on caused any unwanted interruption. I do however turn off traction control sometimes. A Haldex controller on the other hand is one of my...

      Other than that dip from 3500 to 4200 it looks pretty good. I wonder if that's timing pull.

      The glove box area is still going to be the easiest place to get switched, constant and ground. Other than swapping out a couple of older parts for the new box it should be the same in respects as...
