      gauge is telling I'm boosting over 25PSi

      Semi-dry night so just took the tig to an empty access road to let her loose...

      ESP off I get nothing but wheel spin which lead to a super fast red line in 3rd... (going to lose my clutch if I'm not careful)

      Only made two passes but pretty sure its time to update my tires..

      Our 2011 models came with AWD and the option of DSG, that would have been a huge help.
      Are you able to utilise the power effectively with the 6MT?

      It's been my understanding that none of the Tiguans have DSG.

      DSG would be nice if VWoA would have offered it to north america.. But I have always had a love affair with manual transmission.

      As for how well my set up will handle the power, I'm still on the long end of the learning curve of the new power band. I'm sure once I get used to it I will be able to take full advantage of the power.

      I just may go through a clutch and set of tires before then

      word to the wise.. don't go more then 3-6 months in-between plastic-dipping your items...

      I have plastic dipped my grill 5-6 times, this whole process would take me 10 mins to get the grill apart and maybe 5 mins to pull the dip off. But this last time I had let it sit on there for well over a year. It took me over an hour to get the dip off and had to sand some of the edges down to get it all off.

      And another fail moment from this weekend...

      I ordered some lamin-X for my tails a few months back, and finial uninstalled my tails this weekend..

      I REALLY don't know if it was training day at Lamin-X or ECS sent me the wrong ones, but that is the WORST attempt at "precutting" any pattern I have ever seen. Along story short they found there way into my trash can.

      Ending on a good note.... I ordered my GoPro this weekend

      Shame it didn't work out with the laminex.

      I have had my plastidip on for 18 months..........
      Maybe i'll just leave it on there.


      Go Pro's are a nice piece of kit.
      The Tig doesn't have many easy mounting points though (I mounted my grey import camera to the passenger headrest.)

      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.

      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

      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.
