      Keep in mind wheels are unsprung weight that is also rotating. Huge difference compared to static weight.

      The OE tire size for 19 inch wheels is 235/35....

      The OE tire size for 19 inch wheels is 235/35. Finding a tire with a 91 load rating at that size is pretty easy. 225/35 has less sidewall which is most likely why the load ratings are lower.

      You sure about that? I'd bet dollars you've impacted the amount of air that flows through those stacked heat exchangers now. The mesh might look relatively open to you but it takes very little to...

      Have you ever pulled the small screen out of any newer sink or shower head to increase the flow, ie remove the restriction? In essence you just did the opposite.

      What's your mileage been on those sets? I got 12k on my 5Ps. Great tire but poor life.

      I'm guessing your intake is throwing your MAF off. A vcds log would verify. That dyno plot looks just like others that had the same issue.

      Plenty of BBK options out there that use the same diameter rotor we have or smaller but thicker. Typically though the smaller in diameter and thicker they get the more money you are spending.

      I highly doubt it was done for cooling purposes. If they were that concerned with heat they'd use ducts to move the air out. In my opinion it's done that way more to prevent water related issues than...

      Am I the only one that has a hard time understanding why you would spend 60.00 on this when you could get a 5.00 charger off ebay that goes in the cig lighter socket about one inch in front of it?

      You'd have to drive through a lake to get hydrolock. Water from driving in the rain is a non-issue.

      What I'm curious to see is how well the stock box performs with the large mesh screen removed...

      On the flip side, how's the responsiveness with the A/C on compared to the MK6? Still kind of a dog, especially at lower RPMs, with the A/C on?

      They forgot to plug in the hose. So now you're losing metered air that supposed to be going to the turbo and metered air that's supposed to return to the intake.

      The MK7 R is putting down impressive stats as well. REVO stg1 with a REVO intake, full weight, 3/4 tank of gas, sticky tires. 3.8 sec 0-60 and 12.1 in the quarter.

      First, kudos for making something that looks fantastic. I hope the fit is as good as it looks.



      If that's true these two images aren't accurate as to what's going on. You aren't pressurizing...

      That was my thought as well. I have to imagine there's a fair amount more heat being generated.

      Is the IC still stacked in-between the the A/C and rad?

      Weight has nothing to do with durability. A forged wheel by someone like HRE weights under 20lbs at the same size and is considerably stronger than a cast wheel.

      28lbs is 2lbs over the stock MK6...

      That's the issue with t-bolts, way too easy to get crazy. A good worm clamp with the slots cut in to the band (vs a stamped band) will be more than enough.

      OP, nice sleuthing skills!

      What's the rev limiter set at for that tune? Higher than the 6600rpm stock I'd imagine as it appears the gearing is only good for 57mph at that rev.

      Quality wheels and tires go a long way in preventing damage. Obviously if the pot hole is big enough nothing is going to stop it (we had one set off an air bag this year) but a forged or rotary...
