      Would this work with the upgraded APR LPFP is what I meant to ask. I no longer have my OEM LPFP.

      Arin, I am one of the early Stage 3 users that has the "other" APR upgraded LPFP. How does this apply/fit into my scenario?

      Honestly I think you have every right to be upset, it's frustrating when your car gets laid up. I honestly also think you are overreacting. Had you done "better" (not knocking you) research or...

      No CELs. Although my passenger wiper blade just ripped...that must be cause the car is so fast - APR send me a stage 3 compatible wiper blade please ;)

      Were the two Stage 3 R's you drove on the old file or the new file?

      I have had Stage 3 since ~20k miles (now at 43k). Updated file is really apples and oranges compared to the first rev, in my...

      The pedal effort (to me) is perfect. Yes it took a little while for the clutch to break in, the initial "new" stiffness subsides in about a week. The resulting "normal" stiffness/pedal effort is...

      While I am only one opinion, there was no sacrifice of civility whatsoever going to the Stage 3 Endurance for me. Extremely low, almost non-existent chatter. Decel noise is there but minimal. It's...

      From my understanding, VW just makes sh*tty coil packs...supposedly the R8 ones are better - I have been running them since Stage 3 (20k plus miles) and have had zero issues.

      They take 10 min...

      So I am probably the biggest cam follower procrastinator...anyhow, changed mine today.

      I had it changed the first time at 20k when I went Stage 3. I am now at 41k - so this is how my follower...

      See all you guys are down by the shore...

      99% of the time I'm either in central (Middletown), east of the river (Hebron) or work up in northern CT (Enfield).

      Nothing is perfect. As long as you buy one rated for your power levels there isn't a "wrong" choice. While suggestions from all of us are great you need to do your own due diligence to determine...

      I'm at 37k, stage3 since about 20k...only "issue" so far was my initial kit had a bad PRV but that was easily replaced. I chose to swap out coil packs as well. Obviously cam follower was replaced...

      Yeah it'll soften up a bit more for ya...DXD I presume? As you said, chatter is pretty much non-existent.

      Yup, 3 on 93 is pretty sweet...didnt even bother gettng 100 loaded since well I don't...

      How long have you had it? The clutch will break in a lot over the first 500 or so miles. I love the feel, it is a bit stiffer than stock but totally DD still.

      Same here. Mine is (and has been) only front passenger wheel. And for me it's only when braking slowly/methodically - even with just a bit of aggressive braking it will never squeak. I've kind of...
