      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?

      Yes, they're designed that way, to run various boost control setups. Side port is generally used for manual boost controllers.

      Thanks, we're working on something for the guy that wants 350HP and doesnt want to break the bank, with options to break the bank if thats what the client wants.

      me too....do it and I'm on it. They only thing that has been holding me back is the $7k price tag of the apr kit.

      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

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

      Get the hell out of CA!
      What stupid rules...
      An inspector sees a top mounted BT in NY they smile and ask whats in it, what 1/4 mile times you run and if you want to race!
      I love So-cal but I would never register my car there!
      appologize for the off topic: I'm just excited about this kit like all the others. The 350hp without breaking the bank is 100% me. I'd pull the head myself and pop rods and some other hardware in with this and this would put an end-all-stop to my power mods!

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

      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 [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      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.

      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.
