      Installed my friend's test pipe yesterday, pulled out the cat and dp through the top. You have auto so idk if the trans is thicker, but ive done two test pipes so far and both cats/dp came through the top with no major issues, just got to know how to mingle with it

      I tried wiggling it around but that bottom bracket was keeping it from sliding through the tunnel. Then I tried going through the bottom with the TP and DP bolted together but the tunnel opening is tighter then my wife's grip on my cash flow

      Took the car for a drive and its not boosting….boost gauge says there is no leaks. Any body have any suggestions? The bolts and nuts were tight I double checked them before putting everything back together.

      That airbox cover

      In that first picture it's hard to make out where the lip of the wheel ends and the fender starts haha. Does the 25mm spacer make it poke the slightest bit?
      Drop it like it's hott.

      When I aired down the fender pulled the wheel in. The wheels is pretty much snug against the inside of the fender.

      Marc I only drive that low when its just me in the car. The wife hates hearing all the rubbing and scraping haha

      Thanks to Nic for the sweet airbox cover

      What's the air box cover off of? There's some for the right side as well correct? It comes off of some other VW/Audi. I've really wanted to get all of the covers.

      I think its from a euro passat? Nic will chime in hopefully.

      I think I solved my no boost issue…..the TIP was not on the airbox all the way

      Had to air out the rear to make sure the 2.5" piping fits over the rear beam. I had an ⅛" to spare.


      This is before the hangers got welded on.


      So I love it. The Vibrant resonator I got didn't fit Sooooo I went without it. Its a bit droney during exceleration but since I don't really get on it that much it isn't that bad. I love hearing the turbo spool up

      So I'm gonna actually return the res, get the Magnaflow one and have the guy put it on, he said he could do it in 15 mins. It'll give the car a more stock sound but still not to stock.

      Front is 22" (give or take) and the rear is 21.5" (give or take).

      My car is FWD so the rear doesn't sit nearly as low as the AWD. I only have some of the rain trays cut for the control arms so thats holding me up a little in the front.

      I plan on cutting more then getting them boxed in. Only real issue is the ECU on the driver's side. Pat aka Ben Franklin had a really clean looking solution. I'll see if I can find is thread.
