      So after having the FMIC installed John@roc-euro and I went to Wilson performance to do some AWD Mustang Dyno runs. I came out with 327hp 344tq. John has pretty much the same set up as me except no Intercooler upgrade but this day he had 100 octane program installed and he came out with 349hp 382tq. Sick.

      Heres some pics and going to try to get the video up in a bit.

      How exactly do you plan on improving your stance/wheels?

      Thanks buddy. You should just be happy that your driving an R at 17. When I was 17 I drove a 1985 Ford Escort GT (of course that was in 1992)

      I know I am very lucky to drive any car at all, let alone a Golf R, but I have a job and I've been working really hard to maybe get stage 1 and an intake, possibly wheels (looking at the TSW Interlagos but I love the BBS CHs with the stainless lip). Also, I'm hopefully going to buy the Golf from my dad when I finish college, so putting some of my money into it now doesn't seem like a terrible idea.

      Anyway, nice car.

      Air Lift and wider wheels maybe with some lip. I'm not sure on anything yet but I have all winter to figure it out.

      So after having the Forge Twintercooler on for a couple days now I can say I am very happy with it. What I notice the most is the car has a lot less turbo lag on the top end. 5th and 6th gear pulls are much stronger with more response. I also noticed my boost is now spiking at 30+ lbs seriously the needle actually goes a little bit over the 30lb line. Its only for a second the n drops to 28 and holds at 27 for a while. It looks nice too!

      That's good to hear. I think I'm pretty sold on the Twintercooler VS the other options out there.

      Yeah, I guess that would do it! Might be interested in you wheels/suspension. Let me know if/when you end up going the air route.

      Yeah I noticed that too. I'm not sure what that is but it's not coming from my car. :-)
