      not sure how you could pass with a top mounted BT, even with an airbox. The inspector would have to be

      Depends - if it looks somewhat stock - meaning I could through my covers on - I might have a chance.

      If you could do this for "complete kit" I would be impressed. For down pipe, charge pipe and turbo intake pipe, I paid about what you are thinking for your whole kit.

      "what about a bolt up kit ? for the 225Q ? maybe like a turbo/dp and injectors. a inexpensive way to get some bigger power" - wouldn't this still need FMIC and 2.5" piping?


      Are you serious!?!? That is INSANE that you paid that much for 3 pipes!!!!

      everybody says they are building a cheaper kit, only its missing a few parts. well when you start getting parts made it just gets stupid expensive. anyone can but a $300 FMIC core off e bay, but plumbing it in is where you run into trouble. my hose bill alone came to about $300 for the silicone hoses. One place wanted just under $500 for all the hoses.
      As for pipes:
      3" down pipe w/ Cat pipe $1100
      2.5" Stainless charge pipe $295
      3" stainless intake pipe $300

      these were all custom made since I didn't buy a kit. Also these #$$ are consistent to others I have spoken to. Just ask TTranport how deep into his 2.0 BT car he is. All the tolerances in the 225 engine bay are very tight so getting things to fit just takes time = $$$

      But being in SoCal I already have a smog location set.

      I'm not trying to downplay any of the items you had done but I pretty much have everything you have and I paid no where near those prices. I have a 4" intake, 2.5" intercooler piping all around w/ tial flange, map flange and w/a bungs.

      For example my whole exhaust was $650 and that was from the turbo all the way back in stainless steel from MotionVW. Intercooler piping is standard $600 at FFE and that's turbo to throttle body with map flange and couplers.

      Those prices seem about what i would expect. Good 3-4ply couplers and tbolts add up fast. Always good to have as few connections as possible for more than just turbulance. The cat im sure added a decent amount to the end cost of the DP and stainless isnt cheap.

      Plus im sure yours would pass most inspections.... more so if you painted the intake pipe black

      Yeah - I like the fact. In most cases - if you can keep all your engine covers on there - it isn't going to be much of an issue.

      I just had my car smogged in NorCal and i'm in the most restrictive district up here - but I found a "good" place to go. Since it looked stock for the most part they didn't say anything about the DV relo, T-bolts and silicon hoses, DP and single cat.

      Thats pretty sad if they said something or didnt let you pass for items that have no effect on the smog output

      Oh - I passed - BUT - visual is a big thing here and they don't hesitate to fail you if things don't look stock - some places fail you for a damn cone intake.

      The stupid thing is - I failed two readiness codes - the CAT and the SAI but still passed the inspection since your allowed two readiness fails.

      I was trying to force readiness for the CAT with the Vag-Com that morning and it threw a CEL for something stupid. So I had to clear the CEL and then try and force all readiness again as I had to do the smog test that day. I never got the SAI or CAT readiness set after multiple tries. I did pass the sniffer easily though. Since I did have a CAT on the car it passed visual.

      My only suggestion would be to allow for the intake and charge pipe to be located like stock so you can retain the strut tower bar and a somewhat stock look. I need to be able to at least have a chance at passing the visual for smog here in CA

      Vortex admins get special discounts because anthony gave me a few beers at the hotel last year.

      Really interested to see the downpipe design. If there was one thing I'd change on the 42DD downpipe it's the connections - i'd go V-band clamp - since clearance is so tight through the tunnel.

      I definitely down. especially with tax returns coming my way. i have the exhaust done just need a downpipe to match the 3071R. and i have my own intercooler. this kit sounds like its perfect for my goals.
      Exhaust ran me $350


      Intercooler $150 off a friend

      I am not a big fan of ebay intercoolers, I have been swamped lately, but I will have a good update shortly.

      Well, I'm looking forward to it! Hopefully this thread stays up towards the top, that would be awesome.

      I think a BT kit over the counter like this is exactly what TT's need in order to really kick-start this section of the forum. I think new members will be popping up left and right.

      I totaly agree, I'm really surprised that this section isn't bigger then it is. The 225 tt really has some potential. I can't wait to get my TT project started. It could start here with this kit. Keep the updates comming


    21. 02-20-2009 12:04 PM #56
      Because those with TT's and more on them dont venture over here since they are in the 1.8t section. Can think of ~5 big names that rarely if ever post in here

    22. 02-20-2009 01:02 PM #57
      Yea, and that kinda sucks. But even then, there's so much more that this forum lacks, content-wise.

      We rarely, if ever see a legit build thread here, when we do it's just a minor motor build + slap on a BT.


    23. 02-20-2009 01:03 PM #58
      I have a build thread going, but its not on this forum

    24. 02-20-2009 01:05 PM #59
      Well make it be on this forum! That's the kind of stuff that sucks; I mean in all honesty, it takes what, an extra 10 seconds to copy + paste the content into another section, or to just link us to it...

      Dew it! I like reading that kind of stuff.

      nice build..

      So is there any other update on this kit?


    26. 02-22-2009 10:12 PM #62
      all inclusive no waiting kit ftw, when i did my setup after i finally decided on the parts i was going to use most most items were backordered or not actually made yet like i thought they were ended up waiting almost 3 months for all my parts.

      I will have some pics today, the car in question has a GT3582R on it right now. We're buttoning up a simple, optional, FMIC setup to go along with the turbo hardware kit that should be more than enough to support 450HP
