Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

I'm looking for similar/or better linear power to my 9-2x that I have been enjoying for 13 years (still sitting in the driveway) driving
-mulling over the tuning companies for the last few days...

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

OMG....I am in love with this car. It is exactly how I would want an Alltrack set up! And running a 12.6....holy lord. The 1.8 is pretty stout. My Stage 2+ Saabaru only ran a best of 13.2

What would you put the modification price point at for just the go fast bits, suspension and wheels excluded?

I will need a second car in about a year or two to replace our aging 07 Altima, and I can probably pick one of these up low miles for a hell of a good price.

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

IS38 turbo (golf R) - $1000
Golf R injectors - $270
modded Golf R downpipe (removed first catalytic converter) - $140
JB4 (used) - $300
BMS Water-Meth Injection kit - $300
Misc - $400

Total'ish - $2400

Now, I really need a DSG tune, and I went with Eurodyne because they were supposed to have maestro come out soon. It'll be similar to RomRaider. I didn't install that until afterwards, and that was $1100 for both. I am also looking into a true 3" downpipe too. My goal is 11s with the car.

There is a sportwagen with similar mods running [email protected] - He is using APR IS38 100 octane tune and DSG tune. He is also a few hundred pounds lighter than I am.

I say IS20 turbo (GTI), JB4, and modded OEM downpipe. This will be about $800 in total parts, and you will be in the low 13's high 12s.

Re: Another dumb German car: Episode V

Eh, installed no. Uninstalled they would look at the part number if they care.
