      First day pictures!







      Good bye dear friend.


      Fantastic dash layout.


      5 speed manual has a low highway RPM. 70 MPH is a little under 2400 RPM in 5th gear.


      Breaking it in the right way.


      My better half scoping out the goods.


      2.5L .




      A leftover Magnaflow muffler from my racecar.


      Looking towards the future.




      Specs:
      2012 Volkswagen Beetle 2.5L 5MT Reflex Silver Metallic.
      Purchased 08Jun2012 for $17000 at Gunther VW of Bufurd GA from Vortex member Tucci.

      So Far:
      Plasti-dipped all plastic exterior trim pieces
      Tinted amber reflectors
      Custom Intake

      Project on hold until reliability issues are sorted out.

      Will do. Time frame is August-September to have all the parts in and then the install. Already brainstorming management and positions for gauges/ switches. The hazard button is surounded by four blank buttons, reminds me of a Mini Cooper. It would be a great place for switches.

      Prototype of my 2.5L intake, Beetle version. It is very difficult to fit it right due to the power steering reservoir, the MKVI Golfs do not have this, nor IIRC do the MKVI Jettas. Golfs and Jettas show noticeable improvements off the line for the automatic. The sound is amazing!!! I have a manual and the improvement is there, just not as noticeable as with the automatic. If you are skeptical remove your air box and try to fathom why. This is a prototype, meaning not the final product. I got the fitment right, but now I need to make a final model. It is a very weird shape, almost like a S, to safely clear everything including the hood.



      Loving the dash for even more reasons than just its looks.




      Every piece of black plastic trim (Not rubber) is getting plasti-dipped. Mirrors, door handles, that funky door protector, etc.



      Sorry the sun went down on me, but removed the reflectors to get a coat of VHT Niteshades on them. The light still shines out at night, so no worries there.
