Well, the time has come... to start a thread dedicated to the install of the Turbo... from turbo, to standalone, to tuning..
the work is going to be done with the help of Howard Wolfe (JettaT) and my friend Rob that fabricated the Exhaust at Flipside Customs - http://www.flipsidecustoms.com. Rob will be fabricating a custom short runner intake manifold based off of the stock mk3 vr6 runners, which will be a major part of the fabrication, and hopefully bring the piping to a minimal.
