      And the DP, being the VR is N/A, its headers. I'd use stock headers, and go custom exhaust and sell the autotech catback instead of trying to do custom up too it. That and the autotech catback isn't designed for the airflow out of a VR, so go custom.

      The R intake's tend to jut toward the drivers headlight. I'm sure with Mike's plan to shave the bay he wants something that sticks closer to the motor.

      For the time being I just want to get this plan accomplished before I worry about making power. I'm going to use the factory intake manifold but make my own intake tube. I'm retaining the factory exhaust manifolds also, so I will be making a downpipe. I'm keeping it fwd as a gti should be

      I like your style fuzzy! In my opinion, doing something nobody has ever seen is what owning a vw is all about! I think too many people forget that! Can't wait to see this man!

      In for results. Between you and Ben, I'm not sure which car I am more excited about.
