      That thing looks like a beast.

      Are you planning to keep those wheels on it?

      Full FX400 setup. It drives nicely. The pedal feels exactly the same as I remember the stocker, except that when the clutch grabs, it grabs. You can drive it easy for a DD, but if you're not dandy with the right pedal, it will jerk you around. The single mass def makes some noise, especially in 3rd, but nothing I don't mind really.

      I'm happy for you. Mine's not so simple. It's off the shelf, but it needs tweaking which is completely expected and not surprising. I have a setup that hasn't really been tuned for yet. Between my 870's, IE mani (much bigger than the SEM), 80mm TB, IE street cams, the .72ar billet wheel GT3076, and big port matched, 1mm OS valve AWP head, this is unique.

      The idle is bouncy, but holds and doesn't stall. Driving it is fine, under order of my shop, the motor hasn't seen WOT or anything past 5000 rpm, and I'm on wastegate pressure of 7psi, but it's definitely faster than before when it was UNI 2+, TB exhaust.... On 7psi! I can't wait to feel a 20+ psi pull to 8500... but I'm afraid that might have to wait for me until spring time... Depending on how H2O goes and whether or not we can grab some time from UNI to get a few runs/logs done to tweak it some more I may be able to let it loose a little more.

      Motor has 650 on it, oil is getting changed for the 3rd time since build this morning at RAI in Baltimore, hopefully I can get over 1000 on it by the time I get to OC... So, how about some pics?

      Don't mind the bay, it's put together to run for now, over the winter everything will be refined and organized/cleaned up nicely...

      Just stunning. Can't wait to see it, and to meet you in person, man.

      Will you do all the the tweaking through Uni-Setting v.1.4?

      Same to you bub. As far as I understand, UNI is aware of the unique setup and I will be getting actual files from them, mainly because they know that the IE intake manifold and cams are going to be (already are) extremely popular, so they want to have tunes set for them. But then yes, final tweaks, if needed should be accomplished via unisettings and VAGcom

      Awesome. I reset my idle and monitored a few things during break-in via VAG-COM/VCDS. But have not yet linked up to Uni-Setting to see what can be adjusted. That will have to wait until after this weekend. If you need VAG-COM/VCDS at all this weekend, just let me know.
