      Maybe if you ever bothered to lift the hood on either one or look at one when it is on a lift, you might notice that they are indeed identical.
      if they are the wagon versions of the Golf and Jetta i can see them as being identica. you must be talkin about the motors being identica not the chassis. One is a hatch and goes by the name Golf! the other is a sedan that goes by the name Jetta so they are 2 totally different vehicles. The jetta is bigger than the jetta, the golf is lighter than the ietta. if they are identica then the Slug Bug fits that catagory! dont it come with a 2.0L 8v, 1.8T, and VR6?

      They (all 3 if you want to include the New Beetle) are built on the same chassis, just cause one has a hatch and not a trunk or doesn't have a VR available in this country, does not make them different. You seem to have no ides how cars are mass produced, or the fact that most cars from a auto manufacturer are built on common chassis's.
      Tradition is the art of making the same mistake repeatedly, on purpose.

      Again your sounding dumb, 10psi on a stage 2 kinetics kit will have you at a power level very similar if not exceeding a stock tdi. Just get a manual for gods sake

      Haha this thread made my day. Classic Colorado Springs. I think he should be driving a 65 ton truck instead since all the other hicks there do.

      Well ya were saying that he was in vegas. so i thought he was a resident ight.


      Again your sounding dumb, 10psi on a stage 2 kinetics kit will have you at a power level very similar if not exceeding a stock tdi. Just get a manual for gods sake
      I was told that my tranny can handle up to 12 psi so i think 10 is safer than going over 12

      it could prolly handle 20psi, but only for maybe 500 miles or so..

      10psi, you might make it 1k miles before you have parts in the bottom of the trans pan.

      and yea, they sure did make 1.8T cars with autos, but they SUCKED.

      whoever told you that your auto trans would live with 10psi in front of it, was VERY HIGH, and obviously has no clue about VW autos..

      VW automatics are for GIRLS. 2500 max rpm shifts, and never over 75 mph..

      they are not meant for performance AT ALL.

      I wouldn't go that far, a while back I drove an 03' or 04' Jetta GLS that had 3 updrades;
      1:stereo
      2:5sp Tiptronic Auto Tranny
      3:1.8T Motor

      That car was quite quick and the tranny suited the turbo motor well, and from a roll at about 35mph, when you floored it, it would down shift to first and really accel and on the up-shift to second would chirp the tires. If I had the money I would've bought it, a true sleeper.

      I don't remember the tranny type, as far as I know they lasted, don't know how they did with more than stock power levels.

      Tiptronic 5 speed is nothing like the weak 01M or 01A trannies, is it?

      Don't know, prolly not as weak, but with higher power/tq levels, any long term abuse could not be a healthy thing.

      Wow...I'm way too old for this guys.

      Need a I build another!?

      Anyway here's the facts:

      I spent about $5k

      I made 374whp and 365wtq@25psi on a hx35 which uses a wheel identical to the t3/t4 50trim in terms of size.
      That was on the base racegas tune for a BT 1.8T with 93oct+w/m. That was also on a mustang dyno so figure
      Around 420whp on most dynojets.

      Before I sold it to my boss (Scott) it just had the new wider LSA tt276 cam installed and needed a retune. Its easily capable of 450whp on a mustang dyno with that setup.

      Anyway here's the facts:

      I spent about $5k

      I made 374whp and 365wtq@25psi on a hx35 which uses a wheel identical to the t3/t4 50trim in terms of size.
      That was on the base racegas tune for a BT 1.8T with 93oct+w/m. That was also on a mustang dyno so figure
      Around 420whp on most dynojets.

      Before I sold it to my boss (Scott) it just had the new wider LSA tt276 cam installed and needed a retune. Its easily capable of 450whp on a mustang dyno with that setup.

      Build Another, I dare you

      And one more thing...i'm NOT the guy out of vegas who made some 548whp on a gt3582. He owned Black Sheep Performance which last i check was outta business but was looking to reopen in a different area. His name on here is JakRabit.

      There are enough people on here making power with an 8v to prove a point.

      Now stop jacking up our good names without having your facts straight.

I see that it has a fuse box ontop of my battery. Will I have to take my box off in order to get to the battery?
      Did anyone see this? LMFAO
