      Because it's being bumped by adding and then deleting the post.

      I'm working on it Joe it uses the standard 02 pipe from the 1.8T kit, and an additional set that mounts to the after cat portion.

      The test pipe is standard on the kit, the cat is an option.

      Looks good! Like the Vband connection. My only concern from the pics shown is the vibration on that hanger on the weld. I'd look at moving it off the weld a bit. Also - how accessible are the four bolts in the engine compartment on the DP? Could this be done with a Vband instead?

      The 4 bolts holding the pipe to the turbo are easily accessed from the top if that's what you're getting at. Maybe i'm confused

      Nope that's what I'm asking. The three bolts on my 42DD DP are a bitch to get at.

      shouldn't be a problem, the exhaust portion of this kit has 3 pieces, piece one bolts to the turbo with 4 bolts, piece to connects to the mid pipe. The mid pipe has a vband on the lower section and a 4 bolt flange on the upper portion. The upper portion of the mid pipe is studded, so connecting them is pretty straight forward, wind on the nuts to near tight then tighten them down. The last portion has the optional cat or standard test pipe, which connects to the mid section with a v band as pictured.

      Hopefully that clears things up a bit

      Out of curiousity since I already have a BT set up, can someone purchase just the DP? Say this person has a custom tubular mani that has a similar turbo configuration as the kinetics mani...If so, how much?

      what kind of cat is that? i've already gone thru 1 stainless cat and am on my 2nd...........this is in 45k miles of ALOT of flow and heat....but still. that thing looks similar to a factory (non-225) cat.

      The DP is really involved, and with the clearances I don't think it would fit if you had a custom exhaust manifold. obviously from the pics you can tell that the downpipe could hit the tunnel pretty easily so if the manifold/turbo placement is off 1/8" then it would be much further off since the downpipe is quite far down the line. Think if a gear shifter, when you shift a gear the pivot point of the shifter moves very little, but the knob has to go quite far, same deal with a slight change in the manifold placement.

      I can't remember at this time, i'll try to dig it up for you.

      There are a lot of 1.8T guys making 325whp on stock blocks, for much more than that I would get rods. Most of the people that buy this kit will likely want something along the lines of a GT3071R or GT3076R, most of our sales come from those turbos, because they make good power and give you a good spool up. To take full advantage of these turbos you'll want to get drop in rods at a minimum. For a 3071R drop ins would work nicely, I've seen 420+whp on those, with 20psi coming before 4000rpm.

      JC @ Douglas ran a 3071R on his 20V a few years back, and was one of the first into the 11's now he's one of the first into the 11's with a 2.0FSI.


      If you guys have any q's feel free to IM me, or email

      This kit so far from what i've gotton is f**king sweet. i will be posting pics as i go along. i'am def gonna do rods, just that right now my turbo blew so i had to do something, i didn't want to waste 700 on a stock ko4. so i went with a gt3076r. i'm gonna run about 15psi till i can do rods. just to be on the safe side i am not gonna put a boost controller in. i would wanna turn up the boost soooo bad. I can def say clay has been great to deal with. always answers his emails and is very quik with it. thank god for blackberry. lol. i just dropped the car off yesterday to get the kit installed. so i told the shop to take as many pics as possible.

      Looks good Ray, don't forget to clock the turbo and make sure the drain is positioned correctly

      Ray, we've never had a problem with them leaking, I wouldn't worry about it.
