    MPI question

    I've been doing my due diligence for upgrading my Turbo in the future. I'm pretty sure I'm not looking for the absolute most power, but am intrigued by the MPI system providing more fuel headroom and the added benefit of keeping the valves and ports clean.

    Superpro lower control arm machining discrepancy?

    Fellas, I just noticed that one of my LCAs ball joint holes are drilled slightly off center by about 1mm. Will this cause a caster imbalance between the driver and passenger sides?

    Hello all, I’m a long time lurker here. I’m doing my due diligence for a somewhat conservative street performance suspension upgrade for my GTI in the near future. My priorities are handling and refinement, not looking for super slammed stance. I accept that some NvH comes with the territory...
