      pulled the ECU today so i can take it and get flashed at RSW when i pick up the motor..thats about all though..decided to take a little break today..have to run around and pick up a couple of last minute things tomorrow..as much as i love working on it i can't wait until its done..want to see what the car transforms into, kinda forgot the power of an upgraded turbo kit..

      on another note, got a ride in my friends TT-RS yesterday..i that car...tune, intake and exhaust and that car would be beast..i just wish our cars would have the same type of intake manifold it has..i really don't like the plastic one..

      VagPuncher, are you a trained mechanic or mechanical engineer.

      Just asking because this is some extreme work for a home garage.

      for learning it the right way! No school or books or training beats jumping straight into the deep end. Separates the creative from the cookie cutters

      A turbo with 3100 miles on it had bent rotor fins?

      In any case, damn guys you are brave for tearing apart a brand new car.
