      30% more than 3.2 front brakes, or 30% more than 1.8T 312mm front brakes? More details needed please. :cool:

      Congrats again on the results. It's awesome to see the power gains you have achieved giving great results (it's probably all the throttle body :P), even though it highlights other shortcomings. ...

      Agreed Max. It costs less, but you go get it more often. I also see ~24mpg combined on 93 gas and ~18mpg on E85.

      From a cost standpoint, currently prices in my area are ~$2.90 for E85 and...

      If the disc is in backwards, you can't fully disengage the clutch, so you can't get it in gear without shutting the engine off.

      Highway miles don't break in a clutch unless you are downshifting and upshifting every few miles. That's why a literal interpretation of "500 miles for break in" isn't accurate. Regardless, it...

      Peace of mind and a ligher wallet? I usually piece together the components and spend less than their "kits."

      Run it up to redline and see where the limiter is. 6750 = stock, higher = chipped.

      What happend was after I got the conclusive data on 07/11, is you continued the thread with rampant speculation about disc sizes, aftermarket brake "kits" that are nothing more than adapters, and...

      You may be sure of it, but you'd be WRONG. While it works, and I'm able to drive the car without incident, it's obvious something is wrong when you put the brake pedal to the floor as hard and as...

      Poly for me. For my daily I want stiffer and reliability. For my track car I want the same, but it will be driven on the street, so I don't want shortened life of spherical/rose/helm joints.

      It doesn't matter "the forces," it's all about flow velocity. Turns and changes or direction are bad for flow. That's not hard to understand. Some are inherent, some aren't. The angle on the...

      That would mean it wouldn't work on AMU's......didn't CAN show up on 225's with BEA in 2003?

      The angle that is present on the SEM is due to the taper of the manifold and that you want the air to flow along the plenum wall opposite the runner mouths, as someone said above. That taper isn't...

      I was going to reply that the poly won't flatten by deformation over time like OEM rubber, so won't be as low, but wanted to see your response first. :laugh:

      The angle is there more for packaging requirements (alternator on AWP/ATC/180hp 1.8T's, battery box and tray/fan control module on AUM/BAM/225) than for flow turbulence avoidance. VW/Audi aren't...
