      I tried as it is so up my alley but...

      1. No one can make any power, unless you really plan to build the thing to run above 5-6k all the time.

      2. No one can seem to tune it, local guy tried (solid shop) and they just could not get the system working correct.

      3. What would be cooler is to run SPAL fans up front as a push system and make a custom OEM like intake to lay in the front to clean up the bay

      Ugh, just when I thought I'd be ahead of the game with a MKV rear handle.

      Honestly the local scene that is around now is great. Everyone is helping everyone out to make sure we all finish our cars up before Sowo. I wouldn't be this far if it wasn't for everyone. We also have Mrs Egokiller's R32T getting a full turbo upgrade and then bodywork and full respray. A yellow 20th getting a turbo upgrade and some cosmetics, an mk5 gti that is almost done, a 12v jetta full respray and now a 24v gli getting a turbo....savannah is doing work.

      You need a mk5 gas popper. They look very similar but the mk5 one retracts back in. I'm still working on the wiring so that it only opens when the doors are unlocked. I will post up everything when its all said and done so keep checking back.

      The new red looks so much nice than the TR. It's almost like DBP had a sister Deep Red Pearl.

      ok sounds good, I was going to run the mk5 badge just like a regular mk4 shaved handle delete.
      Then use the mk5 badge as the handle and mk4 gas popper to just unlock the hatch. always heard the mk4 popper would work?

      Are you making the mkv badge fully functional?

      Yes it will be fully functional just like the mk5. I can wire it up to activate the hatch popper via the microswitch...it making that only function when the car is unlocked that I'm figuring out.
