      Put my Wolfsburg grille on today...



      R-line fogs should be here soon.

      Yes yes... "MOAR LOW" I know. These things take time.

      No stage 1 peaks at 22 psi. My stage 2 only peaks at 21 psi. Also, 20% drivetrain loss is very high for a FWD car.

      The center caps only lasted a few hours. It looked too tacky, I put a chrome shield on today thanks to Minor_Threat. Much better.

      19psi at stage 2 seems to be a little low for one. I'm stage 1 in my Fahrenheit and peak around 22psi. Keep in mind that some people think 22 is a little high. That being said, that's running a 93 octane program in my car. I've looked around the APR site and can't find the 91 octane stats. Engine to wheel HP loss is something like 20%, take that into consideration. The age of your gas, oil, condition of plugs etc will have an effect also. Keep in mind that when these companies put out numbers that they're produced in optimal conditions. As far as weather goes, density altitude will play a role.

      All my gibberish aside, if you feel a difference with the tune, there's a difference. Don't be disappointed in your numbers. At the wheels a stock GTI/ GLI is probably something like 170-180 HP.
      Thanks for the input... I just gas'd up 2 days ago and oil change is only 2 weeks old. It's very dry out here so that's why they do the weather condition factor. I'm definitely boosting normal, all ratings that I have seen and what my eurotek rep tells me is 19-21 psi for stage 2.

      I agree... No way stage 1 is hitting 22, if so then it's like they down graded stage 2... Boost gauge must have been off...

      Struts / shocks and springs.... the ABS had a fit, but a little VCDS massage has it all happy again.

      I know the feeling. When I sold my Jeep for the Jetta I felt the same way. I love my Jetta, but I miss the hell out of my Jeep everyday. Good luck with the Touareg and the sale.

      And @v408w, sick firetruck is sick.
