      The only downsides to the AFX is it only goes to 16:1 on the lean side and you can't recal the display for lambda or non-gas AFR.

      I havent even taken a picture of the car, its a plain jane green 95 Jetta GLX. Started out fixing what was wrong with the car to make it my daily, and ended up being more modded then my GTI was. Bunch of parts just fell into my lap so I put them on.

      Project change. Won't be ready till the 2013 race season. Switch from a mk4 jetta chassis to a mk4 GTI platform. Cage will be installed mid March ( $2,500 out the window). Still using the 12V VR set up. Going to be hopefully be talking to Kevin about get a lugtronics set up going. SQS gear set and a set of dss axles.

      Lot of money to be spent but well worth it

      normally its no big deal solo. but i guess the car is a couple clicks lower than normal on the stands.

      but new clutch discs goin in at this time as well. no real reason, i guess. new material. Sintered Iron. lets see how they hold, not that i was experiencing holding issues. just now is the time if i am gonna do it.

      Too funny, and those gains are pretty spot on. I always wanted to try this out real time but never got around to it. Oh well, my car was too fast anyway and needed that big air catcher to slow me down...
