    Thread: DT's Build Thread

    1. 02-07-2012 07:32 AM #151
      Good tip on the Plasti-Dip. I did mine a week ago. It wasn't the best of jobs since its my first time but I now know what to look out for. Hopefully next one will be much better and thorough.

      I too ordered the Lamin-X tail light cover films. Geez I hope it works out for me.... Sorry to hear about yours.

      I'll be keeping tabs on your build mate.

      Its official people.. My clutch is on the way out... Loosing all power to my wheels at 3.5k RPMS.

      Need some help in researching a clutch for the Tiguan.. Any takers?

      thanks!

      This is what our APR guy reccomends if you upgrade to Stage 3.

      DxD is SouthBend.. Local shop called APR/APR called SB and SB said "will not guarantee a fitment at this moment."

      Well that is odd.
      I believe our APR guy uses Sachs clutches in their cars as DXD is okay but not their preference for heavy use.

      That seems to be the one.

      Bear in mind out Tiguan runs the EA888 engine so that may give you more options as other cars also used this one i.e. Mk 6 GTI

      Clutch going in.. Installed fine.. but still need to get it drive-able to make sure its 100%

      Shop pointed out my one of my CV joins in my one of my axles is DOA... /sigh

      I'm at 35k miles.. maybe VWoA will cover it, but I doubt it...

      Madness!
      Props to them for being so accomodating.

      Make sure you get some pictures and I am sure there will be some others who are looking to upgrade so they should keep the template.

      Wish I would have caught this thread when you were still living in GA.
      I have had my '09 6spd Tig since mile 71 and it has been terrific. I have done the APR intake and software upgrade but that is about it save some aesthetic items.
      About to do a suspension drop to it. But seeing your build thread gets the mod bug fluttering.

      I must say thank you for being a pioneer for modding the Tiguan and for keep this build thread updated!!

      They have been pretty good on the dust so far.. but maybe have only done around 3-4k miles since the install. also running hawk pads with them.

      Thanks Evil.. But can't really answer this yet. My clutch failed pretty quickly and all I got was slippage in 2nd and 3rd.
