      I would take a good used factory body part over a new aftermarket part any day, including the inner fender wells and belly pans. That stuff is usually poorly formed, and the belly pans in particular seem to be made of lesser quality plastics. I would get the factory parts on those. But, of course, YMMV.

      Put this bad boy in. Got the wrong hose kit though, and had to do some alterations with the stock ones and some Mishimoto couplers. ECS list the wrong kit as fitting the Tiguan, so if you want one, you’re best off ordering straight from Wagner.

      sounds about right for ECS.
      Mk6 GTI, CSG 6MT with some mods. and a Tiguan that I resist modding impractically.

      Installed 10mm front spacers finally on my 2016 Tig. Had a lot of leaves and dirt collected in the rear portion of the wheel well liner, so if you are removing your front wheels for any reason I would recommend removing a few liner torx screws to clear out the crap that collects behind there. Anti-seize is your friend, FYI.

      How do you like those ECS spacers? Any issues with vibrations at higher speeds, or braking?

      I'm glad somebody around here bucked up and got the Wagner setup. My predictions on the 2.0 TSI using that IC combined w/ some tuning and basic bolt-ons, the IC should make an additional ~20-25hp. I hope you'll data-log static intake temps before/after, though you probably won't

      I don’t have a way to data-log, but it seems to pull more consistently. I’m APR stg2, and currently the bottleneck is the stock turbo.

      I did actually get the right hoses from Wagner, making it a direct bolt in.

      I can definitely believe pulling more consistently. In the tiguan there is PLENTY that you can do before replacing the turbo that will give you some gains... TIP, intercooler upgrade, tuning, intake plus the extended intake that goes along the back side of the engine, there's that turbo elbow (can't recall name), Audi r8 coil packs, downpipe, cat upgrade or delete, muffler delete. All of those mods when combined are worth pretty significant power on the TSI.

      I’ve got the CTS Turbo intake, along with catless downpipe. Turbo muffler delete, and the outlet pipe. I did the R8 coils right after I went stage 1, cause I blew the factory ones. I’ve still got the factory exhaust, but eventually planning on just running a vibrant resonator and deleting the rest. I still need the throttle body pipe.
