      Yeh, mk4. 2003 Jetta Wolfsburg. Nothing special, daily driver that gets way to many miles and not nearly enough love :-P. Wasn't aware of a meet, when and where?

      Re: Wastegate Actuator Spring Mod

      I unhooked the n72 valve and my car was running 5psi, so that's where the wastegate was opening. With the single spring I have on there (different than the home depot setup, BTW) it moved to 8psi. 2...

      Re: Wastegate Actuator Spring Mod

      True, but that's also how you build boost. If you're running stock boost levels, this mod isn't for you. When you start pushing boost to the point that the wastegate is blowing open, adding a spring...

      Re: FT/FS: st coilovers

      Mine are $1500 coilovers. Was wondering if you wanted some nicer, stiffer, or what? These are the stiffest on the market, but my car isn't a track car :-\

      Re: New Solenoids fixed it!

      New problem, and I'm not sure if it's related or not.

      My usual drive is a 75 mile round trip, going 45-65mph. The other day I got a little over that speed (70mph), and my esp light came on....

      Re: Roof Racks

      Been looking at with and without fairings. A fairing definitely helps with the looks so it doesn't appear super tall. I'm looking for one to add a basket too though; no bikes, skis, kayaks, etc here...
