I'm thinking even with the diff in there I will have a traction problem.

      Steel, is your car going to be done Friday?

      That car is ghey...



      Hi Bill


      I have to swing by soon and see the new beast. Plus, it's an excuse to go to Zum Stammtisch. Hell, I'll even buy you a good German beer

      Let me know when you're in the 9's

      2014 VW GLI Autobahn/Nav/DSG - Two clutches. Two pedals. Four doors. No apologies.

      His car won't be done tomorrow.

      Chatter is extremely annoying after a while. Why didn't you get the silent clutch?

      That is lame. Hopefully they come out with a silent endurance one. Was thinking of switching if the car puts down decent power. Not really worth it if it doesn't...

      I have some new 8 puck drag disc that they offered. I will ride this one out for a while but if it does annoy me too much I will have to look out there and see what the options are.

      Isn't it the same pressure plate for all the stage 3 clutches? I'm not sure I follow why it didn't work.

      Yea, I got to admit chatty clutches would get on my nerves. My buddy who has the EFR MK6 has a manual and that thing is annoying as hell. Makes me glad I have a DSG.

      Big delay with my build vag. I just posted the details on my build thread. How's the wife's knee holding up with that clutch!? I know mine would be bitching by now!

      When you turn the A/C on its unbelievably terrible..Sounds like a 1982 diesel mercedes..As long as nothing falls out i'm good for now..lol..She is actually starting to get used to it after a week of driving..

      On another note, i took it out for a little last night.. Although the roads were still a little damp 4th gear spun a little..didn't go too crazy though..car gets up to speed fairly quickly...boost gauge needle stopped at 20 psi.. hopefully tonight i will get to beat it up a little more with dry roads..maybe a video or 2..

      i wonder how much of a PITA that would be..

      Just washed the car and opened the hood and saw the passenger side intercooler pipe coming out of the AWE TOP..if it happens again i'm going to cut off that factory flange and have someone just extend the pipe a few inches..probably better off doing that anyway..

      Doesn't sound all that difficult. I wouldn't go as bonkers as Skully did though.

      I still don't get why only 20psi. Still sorta think they are just holding the "v2" tune until another tuner stops dragging their feet.

      Don't bother using the a/c at all after having the clutch changed. Had to use it once when the windows were fogging up bad and it sounded like the car was going to explode.

      early opinions of difference from stage 3 v2?

      Do you have the awe top for the s3 FMIC? Sounds like you don't. I don't. It's a pita connecting to apr FMIC.
