      Travis, what are you looking to spend? My PAG kit may be up for sale soon if my transmission goes on me which seems to be the way this car is going..

      If you want something reasonable for it I would definitely be interested.

      Btw has anybody heard of these guys?

      http://pwrhaus.com/pwrhausic.htm

      black forest industries just started selling their products and thats one hell of a price for a nice front mount (if in fact it is "nice") I'd like to see the density of the core and what kind of piping they are using. I'd also like to know the dimensions, etc etc.

      Here's a link to BFI
      http://store.blackforestindustries.c...k41frmoin.html

      Both of which don't give much specs on it.

      It's an up-charged eBay kit. Save a $100+ and get an eBay kit with a large core if money is an issue. You can always get a better core later on if you feel you need it. You may also be able to pick up a good used kit in the classifieds

      Or possibly go with a Eurosport kit?

      Would the smaller piping be an issue? I think it would just mean faster charging.

      smaller piping is fine for a street car. big piping would be better for a turbo thats realy pumping out the cfm's and high boost, like a racecar.

      for 99% of the people in this forum 2"-2.5" piping is just fine.

      This is the kit I ran on my car for the past 3yrs. I made 366whp and the car had a serious misfire issue. Temperatures were fine...so if you plan on staying below 350hp, it is an option. Piping is 2" and goes underneath the car...if you go the pag parts wasy you're good to go. If u go top mount it won't work.

      travis, cop some piping of ebay. they have a 2" hotside and 2.5" cold side. there are a few piping options that will work. just grab a nice decent IC core. i have their 28x8x3.5 core and it's awesome. If you can afford a PAG 550 kit, that would be dope too

      this piping kit has a HKS BOV flange on the hotside instead of a DV bung

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/98-99-00-01-...sories&vxp=mtr

      this one is kinda new. looks decent tho

      http://www.ebay.com/itm/99-05-Volksw...sories&vxp=mtr

      this one is the normal greddy style piping w/ the dv bung. i have this same piping kit, but i modded the 1st and 2nd pipes for the top mount 50 trim when i went BT

      I like the idea of 2.5" hot and 2" or 2.25" for the cold side, it helps throttle response and works to negate core pressure/flow losses

      I'll probably order a set however I don't see a map sensor flange on them. I hate to ruin that nice paint job :-/

      Also I guess this would be my first build pic... it goes in Monday.

      So once I get this beast in I'm guessing it's 500 miles of being careful to not slip it too much (if thats even possible,) no WOT and no launches.

      yeah dude. as long as ur tune isn't running rich it doesn't really hurt your gas mileage. heavy boosting does tho, but still it isnt that bad

      I'm surprised. I guess I shouldn't be. BT can be fairly efficient. Also a heads up, I may have a complete used CTS kit on the way shortly.

      It's his right to go off on whoever he wants. Etiquette isn't a requirement in America. It's his right as an American to be a douchebag. :-) You don't hate America, do you?

      I have the worst of luck, I've had rear rotors to throw on the GLI for 2 years now and never had to put them on. Finally this week I heard metal on metal in the rear and figured it was time. After taking the rotors out of the packaging I noticed they were Jetta rotors not GLI. So with that said I figured I would just replace the pads. Well I pulled the caliper and a freken slide bolt is rusted slolid in the carrier. I tried PB blaster and a torch but nothing. Had to buy a freken $150 new carrier. What a POS.

      Regardless even though the car isn't exactly driveable at the moment I'm going to limp it to S&P and have them install the clutch since I don't want to be an @ss and pull my Monday morning appointment at the last minute. At least something will get done to the car while I'm waiting for the carrier to arrive.

      PS. I was also working on cleaning this guy up real nice. Still needs a bit of work.

      Hey I have mk 4 calipers on the Jetta you could nab when you get the turbo kit. They only have like 4k miles on them. I'd hook you up since you already are coming this way.
      It's his right to go off on whoever he wants. Etiquette isn't a requirement in America. It's his right as an American to be a douchebag. :-) You don't hate America, do you?

      Look what I picked up this afternoon. Thanks to Steve. I hope he likes the Avant Garde's, I'm gonna miss them. I noticed a few thing that need looked at and repaired before everything goes on the car. Turbo should be serviced (rebuilt) as it has a small amount of side to side shaft play (no in / out however), a small hairline crack in the o2 housing right over one of the welds should be repaired and a broken off stud in the manifold needs extracted. Sounds like alot of work but I have a buddy that welds for a living and a buddy that rebuilds turbos for a living so we're good to go.

      PS. Yes I know not all the parts are there. The hardware is bagged up as well as a few fittings and the oil line I didn't want in my living room.
