      My daily driver- Big turbo MKV GTI

      What kind of issues? the 725 is good for like 650ft-lb tq (or more) isn't it? It's a nice clean build, I'm not knocking it - just asking a question.

      SHOW ME your custom VRT set-ups

      Makes sense actually. The vibration travels through the chassis more than the sound would. Vibration damper mounts with a little DEI sound barrier would probably do really well.

    7. C7 Z06 Is Experiencing Power Loss After A Few Laps

      GM made the business choice of going with a mass market strategy this time around. Pricing / options etc prove that.

    8. Minimalist Functionality - a VRT build / internals guide

      Two studs had to be wound out roughly 3 or 4 threads so I could get full engagement with the nuts. Keep in mind this was while using a MKV BUB head.

      With the MKIV BDF head I didn't wind any of...

      AVC-R install photos MK4

      hey - does anyone have photos of an AVC-R installed in an MK4? I'm trying to get ideas for an out of the way / clean / kind-of stealth install, while still being able to see the readout.

      Thanks.

      Oh, of course u guys are talking about drag, lol. I'm not into drag personally, but the Sportcomp2's probably wouldn't be ideal. Lapping / time attack - they performed great though (at over 550hp)....

      Bridgestone gForce SportComp2

      Also, I used a CM steel flywheel (~17lbs) on the latest build..... it's a good compromise. Aluminum was too light for my liking, on a VR at least.

      For ~16 years I've always just torqued the bolts with a good / calibrated tq wrench. Subsequent checks have never found movement in the nut or bolt (depending on application).
