      Pick this up from Mike over at Tyrolsport....



      Rare & VWMS approved...Good enough for me . It was actually built for the Seat Motorsport team. I think this will suit me fine. The demensions are 21"wx15"hx3"t. It will fit between the bumper rails pretty good. It's the height that might be tricky. I'll hack up the bumper if i have to. I don't plan on hiding it

      This is being made for me as we speak so with the inlet/outlet on the same side will shorten up my tubing greatly


      Still haven't gotten the Jetta home yet. My tow truck guy had surgery on Monday so i'm waiting for another friend to fix his so i can get it home. It's holding me up big time.

      Does anybody know where i can get a set of metal VC studs? I wanna use a metal valve cover but i need the studs.

      I sold the Aeromotive FPR to a friend (Still haven't gotten it yet tho...) and i ordered a Fuel Lab mini FPR. IMO, they are better then Aeromotive and only half the size.

      I'm going with a Zeitronix Datalogger with WB, boost & IAT meter. Way more functional then a Innovate WB controller for half the price.

      Gonna pull the trigger on this sometime next week.

      This will be my last week for gathering parts as i still have to do my last bit of Xmas shopping. I wanna get enough parts to keep me going till after the holidays.


      Moar to come..........

      Big turbo doesn't equal full throttle all the time. It knowing you have the power when needed. And i don't speed. I'm to old for that schit. None of my crew speed or street race when we're out cruising and most of us have big turbo VW/Audi's.

      Word from the wise...cause you're my lil' homie...
      You have to move out of that speed racer mentality cause it doesn't matter how old you are, that statement made you sound like a 17 yr old. Big men baby their beast 90-95% of the time. Young guy's die trying to show off. Don't believe, search in the archives.

      The older members remember the kid that bought that big turbo VRT mk2 GTI. Cagged, racing buckets. I think he bought it off of Billy T. He & his passenger died 2 weeks after buying it. racing on the highway and hit a school bus. Passenger got decapitated by the rollcage. Sucks because everyone told him he was gonna kill himself. There is a solid 5 people in know that were members here died speeding & street racing.

      Everyone does at some point, I know in every car there is a time when you jump on it just to wind it out. Why build it if you'll never try it out? I get what your'e saying, there is no need to race around like a jackass but every now and then goosing the throttle to the floor just to see what it'll do it a guilty pleasure any driver of a big hp car will do. My pop is 65 and on occasion will carpet the pedal in his rado just to wind it up, never on a crowded road, but an open country lane or empty stretch of highway is an ok place to give it a momentary romp.

      but you did street race I bet back in the day, around 98-2001 hunts point era? no? so everyone does it in their life time. I lost 2 cars because of speeding so I learned my lesson when i was younger. As they say you live and you learn

      I finally got my IC and lemme tell you, this thing is well built. I've also been searching around for more info and this is what i've come across.....

      It was specially made for Seat/Skoda Motorsports factory team by J.Dues. J.Dues is a Spain based manuf. of radiators & Intercoolers for car manuf...mainly all the VW line up (Lambo, Bugatti, Audi, Seat, Skoda & VW)

      There were a limited amount made (something like 20 or so...) and most of them were on the factory Championship winning Skoda Octavia Rally car back in the '00-01 season.

      It was designed around the 1.8T where the intake & outlet on the same side. They used a High Density Core (15x15x3.5") and welded one-off casted end tanks. These things are THICK! I've seen cheap reproductions that went for $1500.

      From i gathered on the Skoda forums, they are very hard to come by. Manuf. This is equal to finding a BNIB Golf Rallye custom VWMS IC that was only used on their factory team race cars......Brand new i might add. Such a great find and i like to thank Mike @ Vlad over at TyrolSport for it.


      I finally set a date to get the Jetta home (Sat.) and i'm so happy...i can't wait!! Whats even better is my boy is gonna shave off some cash for the Coupe's interior (buying it back as i got the interior from him the 1st place), That is money that can go back into the project.


      New order list.....
      Braided fuel line & fittings (Black hose & black fittings)
      Fuel filter w/ fittings (034efi)
      Misc. gaskets and bolts from ATP Tuning
      Zeitronix Datalogger w/ digital display

      I have to do an engine build up (2.0T FSI) for a customer so i won't start back on this till next week. From here on out, i'll only post progress pic's as i'll have enough parts to start putting it together.


      .....Stay tuned

      Engine.

      On the topic of driving like a jackass and the likes. I told a few friends (big block muscle guys) I was planning on breaking 140whp in the GTI and sitting on that to see how I liked it about 2 months ago. I'm still getting made fun of for aspiring to have prius-esque power
