      Zak- They are basically identical and unless you study them up close you cant tell
      Ben- I will be wrapping them all into one tighter bundle like so

      Doug- I was going to get the tiguan cover which is basically the same thing, but I was worried it would have clearance issues with the charge pipe. Also will that bolt to the valve cover or will I have to snap the tabs off and move them?

      I ordered the PN I gave you and I should have it Thursday so I'll let you know the clearances. Not sure if I'm going to use it or not though.

      Currently it has a 9" AEM Dryflow.
      The mini keg had a 5" AEM Dryflow.
      Basically its a heat shield. It worked well but didn't flow enough air for my liking. It was too quiet as well

      Let me know how much space you have from coilpack to charge pipe.

      I can't run it because it's plastic and my top mount manifold setup would melt it in 2 seconds I realized.

      As of now I only have the VC on. I need to wait for my tax return so I have money to buy more stainless steel nuts and bolts for the IM. Being a college student sucks sometimes

      I should have everything back together and buttoned up by early spring at the latest

      That's heat reflective tape. It replaces the oem heat shield that looks like poop.

      so you've replaced something that looks like poop, with something that looks like poop?

      im not so good with constructive criticism, and everything else looks beautiful so far, but that tape is just a boner killer bro.

      That's just with the individual wires wrapped. They will be wrapped in a bundle like the gold example at the top of the page. You really didn't think I would leave them like that did you

      As of now no. Spring break starts tomorrow and I want to try and work on it a little. My tax return is back and by the looks of it the cluster will be rebuilt and I will have new blots for the wheels. I am happy
