Finally, I can ask my totally n00b and stupid question:
'11 JSW owner.
What is the proper order for getting springs, spacers and new rims on my car. Do I need to install sport springs before I get the rims, or do I get the rims and base what springs I buy on them? And then spacers come last I imagine...
Thanks in advance!
Highly recommended, a PITA to install, but worth it...
I've been reading the forums for a long time but have a question: What's the maximum torque limit for the MK6 DSG? I know APR has been running Stage 3 Kits on their cars for a while (Arin I'm looking in your direction) with ft/lbs around 320+. Just curious to know what the max limit is stock without upgrading clutch packs.
Okay I can't just leave it at that.
The main reason for bump stops is to prevent the damper from bottoming out under full compression as it could destroy the dampers. If you use the factory stops and you put lowering springs in some cases the bumps top won't allow you to have any room for the springs to compress thus you would be riding on the bump stops or a rigid suspension.
I personally remove them whenever I change springs.
Here is a question that i fear is too stupid for a thread of its own...
Is there anyway (through VAGcom or something) to make it so the tacho, speedometer things, wind up entirely (speedometer, rpm, gas, temp...etc) at start up ...
like they do on start up for example, the golf r....corvette, ferrari...etc
sorry, i just dont know the actual term of what im trying to describe
Will 16" wheels fit on a GTI or are the brakes too big?
I'm just curious because my wife is thinking about getting a GTI and we have already have some 16" winter wheels that we purchased for her JSW TDI. If she does get the GTI, we are more likely to want to put them on that car and just stick with all season tires for the whole year on the JSW.
On a side note, my wife loves her JSW, but feels it is too slow, hence the interest in the GTI. That's fine with me as I will get her JSW and get rid of my minivan if she makes the switch.
Obviously, larger pipes and less restriction/back pressure is better for FI cars.
