and i'm totally with you on needing something fast! that's why i'm going the route i chose..i bike would be my first preference, if it weren't so dangerous..or the jet ski, but let's just forget about that..i think i'm taking the correct route...well, i shouldn't be doing any of the three, but you know...
AND MINOR UPDATE: Dorbritz brackets came in today...is it just me or do these seem to be a bit overpriced for a little piece of metal? more like, extremely over priced..but, yeah...still waiting on so many other parts...ugh.
as long as there are plenty of at the end, it's all good!
Update: Just hit 6k miles like an hour ago...it's crazy, it feels like I just got the car. I've been driving around like crazy, lately. I hate putting miles on the car, but then I stop to think about it and...what the hell, that's what cars are for right?
yea i agree with them being kinda expensive but after getting the metal and then having to weld it then send it to powdercoat its a lot easier to buy his. i just buy stuff and then try not to think about the stupid amount of money i spend on my car haha
that's just crazy.
Anyways, more UPDATES: we found a head! It's going to be delivered to USP, so they can check it for any warpage or any defects. If it's good, it's being sent up to Stuart for the port & polish and assembly of the Ferrea valve kit with +1mm oversized valves..
Friday afternoon bump!
BBS LM's are up for sale! Someone please buy these and help support my big turbo build?
i secretly read this thread about once a day and dream of doing the same stuff you are. but im just too old and bitter about dumping that much into my daily and reliving the nightmares of air-ride, reliability, etc. i loved it when it was on my a4, but with mileage and wear and tear my car sees, nice stuff quickly gets ruined and goes to headaches. i swore this thing would be a budget modded daily and id do whatever else to my 2nd car. i ordered the first brz here locally and its already hit the north american shore, so i need to hurry up and decide what im doing.
anyways, didn't mean to jack. keep on doing what your doing. love the progress and the ride.
im waiting to hear about those mirror caps as i will pull the trigger immediately upon confirmation they fit in this thread.
i was going to stick with that..but i don't know what the hell got into my head. it's that thing..i told myself i would NOT touch this car at all! If I did though, by any small chance, I was going all out...Unfortunately, that's what happened. It's a freakin' addiction. But I can't wait to have it all done. It's going to be sick. I drive my car a lot on a day to day basis, too. As long as I keep up with regular maintenance and check-up on everything, I think I will be fine.
That's pretty sweet that you're getting a BRZ though. I'm pretty sure that will be lots of fun! Are you planning on modding that at all? I wish I had the option of having a second car. I would probably make this GLI a completely different beast is I had another car for daily. Or vice versa..
Anyways, good luck with whatever decision you make! Keep us updated.
I'll keep you guys updated on the mirror caps. They should be in soon!!!!!!
hump day bump hey!
Look at all these pretty boxes that have started coming in. Yay.
ohh, and this one has to be the most exciting..so far.
And I got an email from TM Tuning..they told me another two freakin' weeks for those mirror caps! OMG....It's been taking forever...now they're telling me May 28th...and they don't even have a reason why....damn. I am starting to get aggrevated. It's been like what? Almost two months or more or something...
i'm just being a sore consumer..either way, that's an expensive piece of metal, haha..
I'm thinking on whether or not i should put mine in already or wait to do everything at once...
Are there any poly bushings for the MK6 GLiI, for control arms and all that....Do you think we could use the MK6 GTI kit??? Anyone have any info on this???
Quick break from the GLI...last week, or the week before that..don't even remember.. we had the "King of the Streets" event held at Palm Beach International Raceway, so I got a few pictures...not really that many, I got there super late..but I figured I'd post just a few..didn't edit the shots or anything..just some snap shots really..
a bit of drifting going on..
27 batteries and 8 15" subwoofers in this freakin hummer..geez
too much base make door crack?
too much base make girl hair go poof? lol
90 trim turbo in an old dodge ram..
And these here are from Sunday...there was a private track rental, and some nice cars out to run for fun...There was a Bugatti that registered, but never showed up, along with USP's VRT S4, that had some problems last minute... :/ Either way, here are a few, just for the hell of it..
this RS4 was running consistent 12.3's...I was impressed. Supposedly he is working on a gt35 single turbo set-up. I am eager to see how that comes along!
one of my favorite wagons...this thing was fast!
motiv brakes, yummmmm.
Don't worry...more updates on the GLI to come soooooooooooooooon!!!!!!!!!!
