      Thanks for the information.

      Sounds like starting with the dog bone and torque mounts would provide a good starting point... I can always add the other mounts, if I decide that a more solid...

      Hi, I actually have your TT-RS intercooler kit, but haven't had a chance to install yet...

      Did you look at putting holes in the crash bar to help avoid the airflow blockage?

      Don't get me...

      I haven't installed a hitch, but the TT's haven't changed much since the mk2 was released. I would think that only exhaust routing would cause a hitch to fit one year and not the next. There is also...

      With a Stage 2+ TT-RS, primarily street driven, with typical drivetrain movement when winding out the engine, is your Density Line Dog Bone Mount + upgraded Dog Bone enough to tame excessive...

      VWR intake was supposed to be redesigned earlier this year, but not sure if anyone has posted up pictures of the revised kit.

      E46 M3's have the same reputation as well. High rev'ing I6 engine, but doesn't take kindly to being spun to 10k plus on a bad shift. Must again be the transmission shifting action like the S2k, as...

      Thanks for the detailed reply URHank. Do you have a recommendation on oil for the OEM TT-RS 2.5L engine to minimize chances of rod bearing problems? I am a bit surprised by your comment about 0...

      Do any of the shops or vendors on this forum know anything about there being that many TT-RS engine problems?

      The 2.5L TFSI engine isn't new at this point, considering how long they have been sold...
    10. Why don't you have NGP fix the bearing problem?...

      Why don't you have NGP fix the bearing problem? Throw in some uprated parts while you have the engine apart. The TT-RS is extensively tracked and I haven't heard of any oil pressure problems on high...

      I can't imagine that you could feel the rotor wipe... It doesn't apply the brakes to the point of being noticeable. If it is doing that, there is a problem. I have yet to feel anything like that in...

      Regarding your transmission issues...
      1) Other than slow synchros on the 2-3 up shift, I haven't heard of many transmission issues with the TT-RS until you get to Stage 3 level power. Where have...

    14. Re: CTS Turbo Audi TTRS 2.5T High Flow Downpipe

      Arin, I am not defending the company's overall practices, but in this case there is really one way to get a full size intercooler to fit and that is to build a new crash bar which goes all the way...

      Sounds like Hawk HPS would be the street friendly option, if brake squeal is a concern. I use that compound on my 97 Miata and they are basically silent.

      Sorry if I missed this detail in an earlier post... which Hawk pads did you go with? Also, are they available for both the front and rear?

      The new Hawk "5.0" pads look like an ideal product for...

      How many countless car forum posts have been spent going back and forth about modifications, new car warranties, and the MMWA... if I only I have a dollar for each one!

      No matter what anyone says...

      Let us know what you work out for an EFR turbo build. With a good supporting setup, the right EFR turbo should be able to make 600whp and still have good mid range pull. I spent some time using the...

      Any way for you to do a 19x9.5 ET45 that will clear TT-RS front brakes? The 18x9.5 ET45 would be good for a track setup, but I would prefer a 19in wheel for the street.

      That is about 450hp at the crank, assuming 20% drive train loss (higher % because of the awd system). That is right in line for a Stage 2 tune, from what I have read from numbers published by other...
