      I would be strongly against this based on my personal experiences, but the new VF kits are untested.

      They should be better, but do you want to be the test subject?

      I owned a blower. It was awful. They stopped using that blower but you still have to deal with VF shenanigans. They're new setup is brand new, no one has it AFAIK.

      If you want N/A, just get cams and enjoy the car. It's a mk4, it's too heavy to really ever be fast naturally aspirated, especially with the ICE I think you have in the car.

      If you want it to actually be fast/quick, go turbo. Keep in mind its going to end up more expensive than you expect, you're going to break things (like those axles), and the way the car drives will be different.

      or you could just buy one of the SRT8 cars you post every so often, do bolt ons and a tune and have a fun, big, quick car.

      i know the whoa's of having a modded car, and its not gonna be my daily so i figured i would do something to have a lil powerz and keep all my stuff in it as well, not looking to be speed racer or the fastest thing on the street... but for 10g's worth of stuff, i need to be stylin on hoez....lol... 20x12's curtains drawn, baggz all down, system hurtin the streetz and tv's and led puddle lights fo dayz.


      i dont think i have ever spent 10g's on fast, but 6k on wheels and hell @ tweeter my last year i spend 22k in 8 months on car audio... could never justify driving that fast tho...

      Well today I finally got the order in for my first set of mods to my stock '08 GTI. Thanks to some good people i met from Bill's I will be doing the installs my self (well I will attempt and fail multiple times then be corrected)

      I am just going to show ya'll a snapshot from my ECS cart and I am also getting a EPL ecu flash.




      I just hope notice it enough and hopefully hit over 260hp at the crank
      BUY MY LIGHTS!
