      Well, the APR Stage 3 is actually pretty close in size to a lot of the bigger hybrid setups people are running these days. In that size ballpark, our experience is that our drop in intake cam is...

      It's gonna be fairly laggy for a street car. Full boost 4500-5k.

      You can make a LOT of power through a 2.5" setup- it's quite hard to make a BT setup quiet (at all) with 3". More and more I'd rather turn up the boost an extra 1psi and have a car that doesn't drive...

      Best advise on here... I'd recommend selling it and getting a 337, 20th Ann, or GLI which will already have the all important 6 speed gear box, recaro seats, better brakes, and so forth. You'll save...

      Hard to say for sure, but from here it sounds like the standard issue choppy idle rattle. It's a mix of gear chatter, tensioners hopping around, and so forth. You can pull the VC and take a peek...

      If you smooth out that idle, that noise should go away... See if you can use less idle torque so the throttle is open more and there is less timing- it should help smooth it out.

      I had the same problem with the AEM gauge. I trimmed the bezel so I could mount it further back on the steering column. You can see the front edge now, but it still looks fine.

      A cam set like that moves the powerband of the engine way out past the powerband of your K03/K04 turbo... I wouldn't recommend it, it'll be a pretty big mismatch. You'll gain lag, loose torque, and...

      2.5" up to 600-700 bhp... I remember back in the day we tested that and on a 700whp setup we gained like 4whp (so, nothing even really measurable on a setup that's not too repeatable), and it added a...

      The twin scroll housings on those smaller turbos (6258 through 7163) are a new housing all together- a .80 twin scroll t4 internal waste gate. That's part of what has been delaying that turbo. This...

      Order both turbos and look at them. The T4 hot side chokes down immediately off the flange to a very reasonably sized volute, especially on that new .80 T4 internal wastegate housing. I think the...

      The small twin scroll stuff isn't really available yet. Should start shipping soon. That turbo is going to spool silly fast.

      PS: The twin scroll t4 ones spool faster then the t3 / t25 / v band...

      Sorry for your troubles... I would pull the lifter and cam and inspect- then decide to purchase a head or not. Only reason I say that is because a lot of used heads are very questionable- especially...

      Those are not over oil pressure plugs... It's just a plug to cap off the end of where they drilled the oil galley. They do pop out especially if you put it in a dirty hole. I'd recommend cleaning the...

      To do this they grind lots of material off the base circle of the cam, and only a little bit off the lobe. Then they include lash caps to make up for the smaller base circle. There are some serious...

      Most profiles people are going to have in their libraries will have too much velocity on the intake cam and run off the edge of the lifter bucket. They use a bit of a funky profile on that side to...

      Please consider the sales volume of the market before comparing prices... It makes all the difference when it comes to manufacturing and pricing (ROI on development costs)...

      I could make them if there is some interest... Design work is already 90% done on this end...
