    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    +1 for the AAwireless unit. I've had it for a while now and it works great, no issues with bumps or disconnects, ever. Setup was easy and it connects in seconds every time. The manufacturer has pushed a couple OTA updates since I've had it, and I appreciate how simple that process is as well...

    Not exactly. Pumps that sell E85 can actually be anything from E50-E85. You really should test it first using something like this: Then knowing what percentage of ethanol you'll...

    Interpretations aside, even running full E85 or a blend tune, an HPFP is all he needs.

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    sure, if we're talking upgrading the turbo then MPI and LPFP is the way if you want max performance. Way back when we started this argument friendly discussion (😝) the poster asked what is needed to run E30 on an IS20. the answer to that question is NOT MPI.

    MK7 "Random / "Stupid" Questions Thread"

    Autotech internals cost $350. PR's MPI kit costs $850, and typically people upgrade their LPFP when going MPI, which will cost another $1000+. HPFP is definitely not more expensive than MPI, ever. Agree with you that I would definitely recommend testing the ethanol content and using a sensor.

    This is not true. MPI isn't required unless you have a hybrid turbo. On an IS20 you can safely run up to an E30 blend with no hardware fueling upgrades. Higher than E30 all the way up to full E85 you need an upgraded HPFP. Whatever the case, you need a proper tune. EQT (and others) have...

    EQT typhoon dropped

    what kind of storm is created when a typhoon intake is matched with a typhoon turbo??

    Anyone install a Dieselgeek Superpin?

    I think it's the most significant shifter mod you can do. Unless you prefer the loose/sloppy gearbox. This walkthrough is pretty helpful if you're concerned about removing the center console.

    oh for sure. The only person who would pay that much would be some sort of rich collector. Way too expensive for most enthusiasts.

    that silver car is one of the most famous MK4 R32 builds. full HPA build, in lots of magazines, only 5k miles, etc. It's a show car. MK4's with less than 100k miles can bring in anywhere from $20-$40k. Over 100k miles usually see between $15-$25k. All depending on condition, mods/unmodded...

    Prefacelift GTI Headlight Recommendations

    Osrams look waaay better than facelift lights, in my opinion.... If I didn't have LP on my pre-facelift car I would have gone the Osram route a long time ago. Much better quality than any "rep" headlight. I know that's not helpful to you OP, good luck in your search.

    Mods to improve shifting?

    the torque solution bushings are delrin, it's a hard composite. They will work just as well as the ECS or 034 bushings. I think it's been said, but the euro short shifter won't really give you the "bolt action rifle" notchiness. It has the same counterweight as the OEM arm, so will feel very...
