      not at all, this MKV has been such a fun car. I'll always have good memories.

      my order has been placed and I'll get the car in 2 months (2nd batch).

      In a way, you are keeping your plans of going FI.

      Have fun with the new ride.

      wheels (Roti's and Enkei's), rotors, and possibly suspension.

      I have someone that might get the car with the rest of the parts and suspension, if not I'll be parting the car and going back to stock.

      Dang it! Your R build was the main build I drool over. I track my R and you offered so much help, thanks! If you are getting rid of the oil cooler let me know.

      Thanks

      after much thought and going back and forth I decided to not get the Gorf, it just didn't make sense for me, I have a solid platform that has most of the supporting mods you need to go FI.

      20k down on a Gorf and then owing another 20k plus a stage 3 kit and supporting mods. I can spend less than what I would owe on the car and have a much faster car in the end.

      So, to kick things off again I picked up a set of Schrick 268/264 cams from Ron @Denon to keep me satisfied while I'm figuring out a turbo build.

      RB also has some OEM size BBK calipers that I have planned for the car when they come out in about 2 months. So, besides that all I need is to work on my DSG cooler and the car should be ready for FI.

      What's the path to the RB caliper?

      Will you be hanging on to your existing RB rotors? (he said, totally selfishly....)

      good to hear your keeping the R32!

      I have been reading on the RB 2 piece they look good, I wonder if we could set up a GB?

      The new RB caliper will fit over the existing OEM 345 rotors or can also be used over the RB Two-Piece 345 rotors. So for those who have purchased the Two-Piece will be able to keep them and just upgrade the caliper when it becomes available.

      This will be Progressive upgrade. You can also just get the caliper and if you feel like you need more you can get the Two-Piece RB rotor at a later time or you can get it all together.

      You'd have to keep an eye on their forums for any GB's.

      The last GB did not go over well, and barely happened. I did see someone selling their front and rear kit complete with pads for about $1500.
