      Ask BFI, MJMautohaus, ect how they do it. Hell, look at Gonzo.

      The VW community isn't the brightest when it comes to venders.

      Almost every Obd2 12v C2 tune I have seen is like this.

      I have one that runs GREAT WOT and at temp, but cold, misfires to the point you have to rev out the motor 3-4 times before you can drive...

      If you only want to spring for one, buy a 1/2" flame tip double cut burr. It will do everything, just not ideal in all situations and you can't make large flat cuts. A good one will set you back $30

      Just run a c2 chip with a non baffled exhaust. They overfuel so badly on decel that it's hard to keep it from popping. Great if you are 16 I guess.

      Can't decide if its the shoddy body work on the car that makes them look like they fit like garbage, or the flares themselves.

      If fitment is cleaned up, I am in for a set.

      Running a 50/60 weight in a car with stock clearances is going to cause more harm then good. 10w/60 in this application is moronic. You will be popping the pressure relief valve at VERY low rpm,...

      The old Volvo, Taurus, and especially Dodge Stratus fans are a junkyard builders goldmine. They have been popular in the offroad and Ls/Lt swap scenes

      Is c85 still upwards of $9-10/gal? Last time I saw it the sticker shock was insane.

      Just make sure to unplug the ECU, TB, and both battery cables.

      The TB is easy to fry on these cars doing any welding work, and after the second time killing one, I tend to be overly cautious now.

      It fits in the AC spot, you just need to massage it with a grinder, and only one bolt lines up.

      It's not the greatest solution, but it works.

      The OBX works fine if you finish the job they didn't bother to do. The quality control is nowhere near the other options though. You need to deburr the whole unit, replace the Bellville washers,...

      Tricking the OBD2 test is alot easier than getting a canned MAF tune to run well.


      Delete checks for emission related codes, set readiness at key on, and wire power ground and k-line. Done.

      Looks like the Coolant bubble is mounted low enough that you are getting an air pocket trapped in the rear line to the head.


      You will most likely need to bleed it using a pressure bleeder.

      That is the worst logic/advice I have heard on here in a while.

      If you think you should change your oil viscosity based on season, you are not in the position to be giving advice on the subject.

      Because there was actual R&D and engineering time into the VF's, unlike the BFI's which are just a cashcow repeat of what has been done many times already. Seriously, one is a extruded piece of Poly...
