Whats going on everyone, been on the vortex for a while, did a few posts and all, but never actually introduced myself, name is steve and I'm a vw/audi noob. Been a mechanic for 12 years so worked on plenty of them, just never owned one and to be honest I love it. Car is a 2009 VW jetta SE 2.5L 5spd black with the leatherette interior. Current mods so far are smoked marker lights, smoked mirror lights, and full custom exhaust, so I decided to be different and fabbed my own with a bullit muffler, and straight pipe the rest of the way back, and my antera wheels that I love by don't like poke so never actually ran them. Have a set of FK Highsports i'm planning on swapping the inserts to Silverline x's in the fronts. since I'm a noob, every bit of help counts since i'm going from building Ford's for drag racing to vw's, so i'm lost. thanks for input

Thanks for the info guys, only thing I'm still wondering about is do I need to run shorter end links with my fk coilovers????????? and stupid noob question regarding the rear perches. By the way they look, they bolt to the lower control arm????
I've heard nothing but great things about ecs tuning, so I plan on making plenty of purchases from you guys.
Only thing I have video wise of the exhaust is a short vid I took at idle but the vid blows cause I took it with my phone, trying to get a good vid soon
welcome to the madness. nice work on the wheels btw.
