Def interested in this exact question, please post up anything that you find. I just installed my ultraleggera's with a drop, and wanting to put spacers on as well. I was looking at a 5mm front and the 8mm rear.
my gti (is38 with catted downpipe) is due for inspection here in the next couple months. I'm down in austin, but I don't expect to have any troubles passing.
I've never heard of the "flash back to stock" deal before. hell, before I had the GTI, i had a c7 with long tubes with catless mid...
if you decide you want to do the work yourself, let me know I'm down to help wrench, and could even host a wrenching party. An upgraded clutch is probably in my near future, and I wouldn't mind doing the work myself and save the 1200-1400 I've heard quoted.
It feels like a factory clutch, and I couldn't find any evidence of the clutch being upgraded.
I need to figure out how to re-tune it for 93. There's no handheld with it, and I think the ECM was just flashed (if that's how they apply the APR tune). What's needed to update the tune?
Ha! I should have posted that.
So this is what I know of the car (based on receipts)
2017 GTI SE - 6spd
APR Carbon Fiber Intake and Inlet
Neuspeed catted DP
APR Silicone Coolant Hose
APR Shift kit
GFB DV+ Diverter Valve with TMS Advantage
APR Catch Can
I just recently acquired a GTI from my late father. From what I can tell it's a stage 3 with an IS38.
I don't know much about this chassis/setup/etc. Anything I need to keep an eye out for? And recommendations for local groups?
