      That looks so awesome. I just got a 2014 R-Line and you've given so much inspiration, I'm just jonesing to mod it. You mention cutting the front, I was thinking that too. Where there looks like premade slots that cover the airbox vent?

      Thanks! Appreciate it! And yup, trying to replicate the look of the GRC/Rallycross Beetle hood.

      Some better shots of the new crash bar and new oil cooler location






      Better shot of the hood vent:



      Also relocated the ambient temperature sensor instead of having it dangle:

      Dyno tune finally done. Still stock injectors and stock hpfp so it started cutting out whenever we pushed boost too far, but I'm very happy with the numbers. Especially considering it was 85 degrees in the shop today.

      390whp and 399wtq



      PS. I need fuel! Lol
