Hey Arin, any Stage 3 updates? You guys had posted pics of so many of the parts a while ago! What are you guys doing over there??
New Turbo Inlet to address clearance on LHD vehicles.
New Turbo Manifold for more clearance for heat shields.
Oil Return Line (couldn't find the other lines) and everyones at lunch.
Turbo Wastegate Bracket. I have an SLA Piece but this is the finished part.
Peel seal of plenum chamber.
Pull plenum chamber off.
You'll see the ECU clearly towards the passenger side.
Where the TT-RS is different is the ECU is held in with just a plastic clip of sorts.
Push on it and the ecu will release and slide out into your hands. Then you can clearly see the chastity belt preventing you you from unplugging the ECU. Cut slots in the bolts and remove using a flat head. (be sure to use blankets to cover up the windshield and anything else you don't want glowing metal filings attacking.
I do recall one set had some loctite on them and were a bitch to get out. Ended up going back over them with the dremel for a second pass which seemed to help heat it up and break them free.
Any dealer flashing / stage 3 updates?

Here's a sneak peak of the Stage III Turbocharger System!
We just want to thank The Smoking Tire for their true Journalistic Professionalism as it's something often missed in magazines and other media outlets today. They were completely unbiased in their review and we were not even asked to cover their expenses. They were a class act operation and if anyone has the chance to work with them in the future, I say go for it.
