      Why don't you take some of that modding money, and buy a damn camera............


      Bay looks fresh though.

      I did get one! Didn't feel like grabbing it to take one of the bay. Pretty much all the pics since Christmas time have been with the new camera..

Plus APR's program is rated at 380tq and the daily is good for 400...I'm sure once you get into 100 octane the crank torque is over 400 so I'd rather be safe than sorry and only spend a grand once (after already spending 400 on the drop in disk once). For an extra 100 bucks I would go with the endurance.
      How many miles do you have on the endurance & have you had any issue with it ?

Of course I'm a bit worried so please keep us informed. Thanks btw your gti is where I hope mine to be soon! Looks great! & runs even better, I'm sure.

      I just put it in January or February. Probably around 4000 miles? No issues what so ever. I love the clutch and flywheel.

      The only issues I have heard of is with the silent design, nothing about the regular flywheel/clutch. I have the regular/noisy one. I really don't think there is anything to worry about..I know a ton of people with these setup's and no problems, along with a ton of experience with southbend parts with no problems. Thanks for the kind words. It's about where I want it minus a few parts (mainly brakes and some bushings). It definitely hauls ass too

      Trailing arm bushing in today! Haven't had a chance to really test them out, but the rear does seem a little tighter

      And LED tails in, repair wire in, wires switched for fog and coded. Will get decent pics tomorrow, but these should do for now. Getting some 100 octane tomorrow in prep for HS Tuning track day Wednesday

      Indeed. Depending how serious you are with getting good times...Don't get crazy during fill up. Try and keep the weight down for the track. Best to fill up gas jugs.

      I'm going to get a half tank. That should be a quarter tank by the time Wednesday is here. You know it's going to rain right? And do you guys have a car I can through my wheels is while I'm running?
