      It looks sweet man! Congrats! I like the fact that you used "VW" center caps!... Pretty cool! Are these VMR wheels?

      Is it on coils, springs or air ride?

      Thanks,

      Beto

      Right now running 2.0 FSI, APR stage 2, cold air intake, 3 inch turboback / catless, eurojet diverter valve relocation kit and oil catch can.... And where the weather is bad out here, thats the weather adjustment numbers. Dyno was done on a Mustang Dyno as well. He gives you the numbers from the computer plus WCF (weather correction factor) numbers, the numbers listed in the previous message are the WCF numbers.

      That's exactly what I thought. Also a few of the guys said the same thing about it being a mustang Dyno that they read low and disappoint a lot of people. Doug (the owner) said weather conditions play apart too and being out here the weather is so iffy that it screws numbers up. I dynoed at about 530 in the evening and the sun was baring right in on the car and in my eyes. Don't know if that had anything to do with it, but who knows. Maybe once I get to the east coast, I can throw it up on the Dyno and see how well it does. 2 of the guys there said when they were with APR stage 2 their numbers were the same. I was disappointed though mainly because I was sold on it saying 250 easily, claims of people getting 240-250 and the site saying 270. Well as you can see my numbers are no where near. So spending 700 on a tune and staying around stock hp is rather nerve raking... . Maybe there is something wrong that I'm missing and no lights are telling me.... Any ideas?

I was 268 hp at the crank on a DynoJet. My modifications can be seen HERE. Only difference between now and when I dyno-ed, is the BSH PCV revamp.
