      Definitely need:

      New Pump, new camshaft, and since you put a new follower back on that old came lobe, a new follower as well.

      The Mk4 4 cylinder is actually much more harsh than this insert. I do agree with you that some (especially those with an A3 and not a GTI) will feel like this is a luxury car and find the vibrations...

      I can understand why it would seem like 90 durometer is a stiff insert, but you have to keep in mind that it is still an insert and not a complete replacement mount, so the stiffness of the insert...

      Its in the works.

      The S3 style gauge would be cool, but only reading to 1.4 bar could be limiting :) and if its anything like the boost gauge in the beetle, its just a needle that moves around...

      Tuning your car won't void your warranty per se, but lately VW/Audi has taken a dim view of tuning in general. There is a possiblilty of your car being flagged with TD1, but there are ways to avoid...

      Yes, the swap takes about 20 minutes and uses hand tools - you just need a triple square socket for the steering wheel attachment bolt.

      We finally got a chance to put project UA30 on the rollers. These numbers are from a Dynojet 248awd dyno, 93 octane file, 80* ambient temp - 272awhp, 319awtq:

      It definitely looks different in person. Its darker in most situations since the pictures on the Audi site are extremely well lit, and the interior of your car is not. I was a little disappointed...

      No DSG software yet - they had not seen the tcu variant of this dq250 yet - so the tcu was extracted and they told me that the DSG software would be available VERY soon.

      I go the chance to have our A3 flashed this past Friday by APR while we were setting up for Waterfest. I also picked up an intake at the same time. And I have to say, for just a flash and an intake,...

      That might work.. But these may become available stateside in the future, and that would have alot of downward pressure on the price.
