      thanks for the reply

      No problem as long as you have the stage 3 it will include a pump and head spacer and you're good to go.

      The kinetic guys used to run a cam in some of the MK3's, I will see if I can track down which one it is.

      if i get one of your kits from your autobar distributor because hes closest to me will the prices be the same or is there a can/usa dollar difference?

      also, do most people decide to switch to synthetic after installing one of these kits? i dont think the 20/50 i run in the summer would be good for the turbo would it?

      We have these kits on sale, if you get them from Autobar your price may be different. Our prices are all in USD, if you order from Autobar your price will be in CDN most likely. As you may know the exchange rate fluctuates daily, we charge the same rates as your credit card company would charge if you were buying something in USD on your CDN credit card. I run Elf Synthetic 5w/40 daily in my turbo car, no issues here.

      The software should not cause any CEL's you should be most worried about a visual inspection

      i have the stg3 avh dbw, with a custom c2 tune from jeff atwood.

      it will run fine.

      intercooler is a good idea though, its not good to make your boosted 2.o hot, especially boosting over summer without one.

      and if you go stg2 its only worth it to just do stg3,theres no sense in building your car then having to take it apart again to put in the headspacer with stg3, which will lower your cr. mine has been running 20psi daily for 2 1/2 years now and not one engine code. its over 260whp stock block

      I was wondering if I have the drive by wire if I buy the stage 3 kit would you guys supply the right software or would I have to buy the software separate for $375, because there is no option for this when you go to buy the kit only turbo sizes.

      The proper software is included with stage 3 kit.

      I don't think anyone has software for those you'd have to email us your ECU code and details to determine if a kit will fit the city golfs

      Ah, so I thought, thank you.

      Back I go into the nightmare that is trying to find part codes /engine codes for the City Golf.

      Unless someone knows better than I, how can i make this easier?
