      Page 1 :: Intro, and a bunch of missing photos which now leave a bunch of posts that make no sense.
      Page 4 :: Ripped out Vmaxxs, and went to stock for a week. Then replaced with Bilstein PSS9 for some actual dampening and future performance tuning.
      Page 5 :: OEM Tornado Red 'DTM' style stubbies
      Page 6 :: Turbo parts begin to arrive
      Page 8 :: MKIV tubular subframe research project begins. Replaced Arooga horn.
      Page 9 :: Turbo build begins. We didn't just slap parts together. Attention to detail was key, and no corner was cut in making it seem like it was OEM in aspects that matter most. For example: Spent almost 2 days looking to auto parts stores to find proper pre-bent water hoses to re-route the heater core lines.
      Page 15 :: Corrado spoiler mock-up. Never went through with it, still debating on machining billet bosses for it and painting it black.
      Page 16 :: Turbo build is done (for now) let's call it stage 1. Took some winter shots.
      Page 17 :: Time flys, New GTI Recaros, Euro Notch Spoiler, New 3" Burns stainless exhaust, Red Winter LBs with Blizzaks
      Page 18 :: New splitter, H2O, break 1st splittler, buy 2nd. Fabbed aircraft style exhaust heat shield for bumper. New Clutch, new glass lenses.....
      Page 19 :: Stubbies re-done in black, white tire lettering begins, Waterfest 17; and headspacer, studs, and pump ordered.
      Page 20 :: Headspacer, studded block, fixed cracked exhaust manifold...quest for more power!
      Page 21 :: OZs get "Flat Bronze" Powdercoat, and get a set brand new BFG G-Force Sport Comp 2 Tires, a new release from BFG that outperformes the KDW VF-Mounts, TWM SS.
      Page 23 :: Catch can installed, Waterfest 2012 w/ LIQUI MOLY.
      Page 24 :: OEM 20th skirts installed.
      Page 24 :: Prototype 034 Motorsport Fuel 700hp In-tank pump installed
      Page 25 :: Splitter #2 broken, no more lip.
      Page 28 :: Black Plasti-dipped and stenciled the winter wheels.
      Page 29 :: Finally hit the dyno again, made 473.77WHP with room for improvement.

      haha right now it definitely seems that way doesn't it? I guess the style i went with just gets more of that feel. Lol if i get to make it a 24V Vrt this summer like i want to it'll be even more function over the form. But i still have some body mods to sort out that i want to do. Shave and mold a littler here'n'there


      and thanks about the hat man, can anyone guess what mag that is under it?
