      Luckily the sales never panned out. I'm almost done with the car finally.

      the car looks too dark on the pic... but thats because of the florida sun on the background... lol

      the car is black, black emblems and tinted LED tails. the wheels are grey.

      on the pics, it looks like a blacked out jetta... it is not!

      I was just looking at those wheels earlier today for my jetta. I decided I want new wheels this season, but still undecided on which ones. What size are those rims?

      Josh, I've been considering removing the sticker since its seen better days after almost three years. I love it though, my car would look naked without it.

      The specs are 18x8.8/9 et38 with 215/40/18 Fallen 912s all around. I was pretty sure it was gonna look really bad on my 2" spring drop, but I think it actually turned out pretty good did I pick up air. Currently the FTG is 24.75".

      What do you mean by different? There's a pretty big amount of stretch. As I mentioned, I'm actually impressed it doesn't look like total crap, as I was expecting with a relatively aggressive like this is.

      Had a problem with the mega-muffler not fitting. Decided to solve it with a section of straight pipe. 3 inch TBE with a highflow cat and single resonator is a bit loud.






      Clamps are just a temporary thing until I find a muffler I can fit in there.

      I would love to hear what that things sounds like before you put a muffler on

      btw, how does it feel now with the 3" on there?

      My camera has horrible sound quality but I'll try to get a clip tomorrow.

      I haven't drove it much since I finished the exhaust, maybe 3 miles. I might be crazy but I think it spools quicker, or it seemed like it.

      the higher flowing exhaust/downpipe should have helped a lot.. + 5-30 whp wouldnt be out of the question... or such is the csase for the 2.0T

    19. 03-26-2012 11:15 PM #344
      Yeah. I did notice one problem with the 3 inch down pipe.

      I'm right against what I assume is the AC line. The aluminum piping that goes into the firewall. There is some play in it so I wrapped it with "header wrap" and pulled it up some. Still concerned about the AC performance with a hot exhaust pipe that close to it.

    20. 03-26-2012 11:53 PM #345
      If the ac doesn't cut it just open the windows and drive faster

      This should fit; also a Magnaflow but only a 4" case. You should be able to get two of them in there (but may have to remove a few inches from the rear of the cat pipe) if one isn't quiet enough.
