Golf R addiction: I work for incremental PSI and the more I work the faster I go!!
what are your thoughts about suspension versus engine mods.. which would u do first..
APR coilovers and sway bars i think would reduce body roll and quicker launches.. would u do that after flashing the ECU? OR would u go ahead and get the fuel pump and the intake and exhaust...
see you in Auburn
Awesome time there.
I haven't run v-max on my car yet with my remapped dsg launching at 5k should be even quicker!

How about some official stage 2 and stage 2+ dynos...
It's said info coming soon for quite some time. I would rather see info that is more in line with what most people are going to do as opposed to some euro dsg stuff that has nothing for me...

Here is the route I would personally take:
APR Stage 1 ECU
APR HPFP & Free Stage 1+ ECU Upgrade
VWR Intake System
APR RSC TBE & Free Stage 2+ ECU Upgrade
I would start with the performance modifications and then head on over to the suspension mods.
Definitely upgrade the clutch though. You're already pushing the limits at Stage 2+ so Stage 3 will definitely exceed what the stock clutch is capable of holding.
of getting rid of the R32 and buying her another car. Should have done it, would have saved
me a lot of $$$ and would have two R's today. Oh well... Wonder how much would it cost. HPA
can do it, anyone on the east coast can do it? Anyone in the USA done it yet? Skela did it with his
I did dyno my car before and after, on a Mustang all wheel dyno, and the 100 octane file made a big gain.
Once APR releases all the info on their US version Stage 3 kit, and I get the production file, I'll share my results. I think you guys would be impressed.
Personally, although there are some guys putting down some great numbers with the K04, I knew I wanted a bit more. I wanted to be at a minimum of 400 crank hp in this car, with the possibility of making 500hp depending on how much more I was willing to do. Even though there are some decent Stage 2/2+ cars out there, I knew I wouldn't be able to make the numbers I wanted, without a turbo upgrade.
I would love to make a video along side a Stage 2+ Golf R, so you guys can see the difference as well as see the spooling of the GTX2867R turbo....I'm not 100% certain, but I think it spools nearly as quick as the K04.
using this calculator, you can get a good idea of what kind of hp it takes to get a car to trap 117mph in the 1/4 mile.
I figured probably 3620lbs, with me in the car.

I looked at the MKV R32 several times from 2008 to 2010 and could never pull the trigger, because I wanted a manual. I wanted the strength and reliability of the manual and a more direct connection with the car. I think I would swap in a turbo VR6 engine before swapping in a DSG.
I'm not hating on the DSG, it's a work of art; however, it's a very sensitive work of art and it's very expensive.
A local MkVI GTI owner was quoted $14k to replace his DSG, when the VWOA refused to warranty it, due to the mods he had on his car. That's over half the value of his car.
And the worst part was the fact that the DSG was malfunctioning in similar ways to others that were on non-modded cars.

This is unfortunate but understandable.
Depending on how much time you plan to take, spacing out mods before a turbo upgrade, it may or may not be worth it to you to have a satge 2+ car for x amount of time before moving up to stage 3. You can certainly sell your unused parts to someone else. But, obviously you will lose some $$, and spend more in the long run.
The CHEAPEST route would be to go directly from stock to stage 3. That way you don't lose money on those parts which are no longer needed. I also think you get a "deal" on the HPFP if purchasing in combination with the turbo kit, don't you?
This is kind of the delima I'm in right now... not sure if I want, or could even swing, a BT Golf R a couple years from now... and I don't want to waste money. So I'm sitting tight on any other power mods for now.
never get myself to trade the MK4 R32 for it. The DSG idea was for the wife, not me. I no
longer have the R32 and this took it's place (financial reasons, not preference) as my ride,
so it's staying manual. DSG is great for 0-60, 1/4 miles, and traffic, but the manual allows me
to stay connected to my car, I don't need to pick up a big gulp or send a text message while
running down the track, pfft.... that is so boring. lol...
