We have decided to create a thread that we will continually maintain and up-date with what we here at RSW call "Shop Life". It will portray the day-to-day customer work, projects, events and anything else we find worthy of the VW Vortex Community.
To start the thread off with something exciting; over the past two days we have been working on a customers' MKV FSI GTI. The owner is running a Upgraded Turbo system that utilizes a GT3071 Turbocharger.
In his quest to make more power and go faster, RSW is currrently upgrading the Stock OEM engine Internals with Forged Rods, custom JE pistons, and ARP's newly released Head Studs for some extra clamping force. Were hoping that he will really be able to lay down both good power and some solid track times.
Now on with some pictures
Pistons are out ! We are about to start filing the new rings to get the new JE Pistons into the engine.
The white MKV GTI we Installed a nice set of FK coilovers on the previous day, had her inside tucked in for the night
