      Thanks for the feedback. I really only like two wheels out there right now, these HRE Vintage 505's and the HRE Comp series C93s which are ultra lightweight with titanium fasteners, which dramatically aid in dealing with unsprung mass. This car will be between 500 and 600awhp so lightweight and strong wheels are a must. But those 505s are super-sick!

      Heres my C93s when they were on the TTS. Whatever goes on the .:R will have gloss black barrels and flat black face in 19x9.5 with a staggered 1.5" front lip and a 2.5" rear lip. I tend to go with the "performance stance" as much as I love the bagged and dunked look just because of the power and how I want to use the hell out of this lil' breezy!

      My buddy Mr. Fernando pchopped these onto a 2-door but at least it gives us an idea? Yay? Nay?
      Amazing. Go for them. Just be careful with the ET so that it can accomodate your Brembo BBK

      Those retros do look sweet but I think the soon-to-be painted C93s will look equally solid on your R. I think another pchopped image with the C93s is needed to be fair and unbiased.

      Thanks TEFF, I am working with one of the HRE engineers to make sure that they not only have a perfect offset, but that they can deal with what I am about to throw at it power wise

      Totally agree, now if I can just get my buddy to work his pchop magic again so we can see. I'll get on it!

      Sometimes I just stop and stare, and sometimes I just stare and snap pics.

      This Dieselgeek Sigma 6 s/s is beautifully done.


      Bravo to them for keeping quality top shelf. Can't wait to install it.

      Indeed, when I got my kit I was like "Wow it really looks amazin, and pictures don't do justice"

      I wonder how the shifting will improve with this setup.

      Let us know Jason.....

      Could not agree with you more TEFF. Right now it's currently residing in fishbowl shaped flower vase on the dining room table. The wife isn't exactly impressed, but she's going along with it.

      Pete, It should be going on next week. Problem is the Dieselgeek Sigma 6 will be in the .:R, but the engine will not.

      Loved following your TTS build - can't wait to see what you do with a Golf R (while I wait for mine to get here)

      So in an effort to achieve the power numbers that I am after with this build, I am selling the APR Stage3 set up out of my TTS. I was going to use it in the .:R, but APR doesn't have a map yet that will support methanol injection, and that is a big part of this new build up. So I am exploring other ideas and someone is about to come up hard on a good deal for the legendary APR Stage 3 kit which on our Golfs should produce a staggering 407hp at the crank!

      Thanks for the interest everyone-

      Here is a pic of the EVOMs intake with engine cover and heat-shield. I was going to leave it boxed up until it goes on the car next week, but like a kid on xmas morning I couldn't resist! I had the EVOMs on my last car and loved it. Mellow sound until you go WOT and it has some grunt to it even before you go with a new exhaust. Two thumbs up on this one

      How would you compare the evoms to forge's twintake? Gains, noise, fitment... Etc.

      I had them both, the EVOMS and ITG are above Twintake, and the Twintake is also more loud.
      I'll be back

      I don't know if you could still fit the EVOMS engine cover after you install the HEP Stage 2 manifold.

      ITG? ... Also evoms shows gains of 10-15 compared to forge who is claiming 17 ... Also "more loud" louder ! Lol :thumbsup: and I'm not worried about noise honestly ... Just the most gains !

      I have a plan to modify a portion of this cover so I can still use it when the manifold is done being built. Its still a good 3-4 weeks away until the next batch arrives from the machine shop according to HEP. Good lookingout though TEFF.
