I was serious btw. Once @riceburner is done with it, he can send it to you instead of me. Just make sure I get it back when you're done with it :)
That's very gracious of you, thanks. No worries, you basically know where I live.You bought my Bull-x downpipe after I sold my GTI. I'll be sure to send it to its rightful owner when done. We don't need the following

Oh shit, you're right! I've bought and sold too many parts here to keep track of everything :ROFLMAO:

Jonny, send it up north. I'll do a 60-130. I don't do 0-60.

I believe you call it 100 - 200 up there. But can do.

I won't make @timmyturbo pay to send it to Canada. So once I get it back from him, I'll grab some mostly stock EQT Stage 1 R times to throw in the ring and see how they compare. Then I'll send up to America's Hat.

I don't even have the DTR and I'm doing what I can do fix that!
I’m dropping off for install Tuesday AM. I’m trying to get as many dragy runs in as I can on my current tuna. I’ll try to get some stock runs in once the AP is out.

Then we’ll have pre- and post-intercooler runs as well with the 6054

Nah - Timmy will ship, he wants to put me in my place.

That's up to him. If he wants to ship it up to the great white north, that's fine by me. If not, he can ship it back to me one state over, and I'll get it to you.

Can anyone chime in before I buy? I have an aftermarket dp and am looking to upgrade the turbo with stock fueling, would this be the way to go or should I look into the vortex turbos?

I think the true benefit of this is if you want to stay emissions compliant - otherwise the other options will provide more power, better response, more options.

Yeah as @manu97 noted, this is really a better option for someone trying to be emissions complaint and has went down the rabbit hole enough to be backtracking by doing this kit.


Seeing from your sig you already have the car tuned Via access-port also, so the benefit/savings of this kits goes down with that as well with it being a all in one option.

Honesty though… if you’re not willing to at minimum go with upgrading the HPFP you really shouldn’t be entering hybrid territory and being in a situation where you’re taxing your stock fueling and running on the edge of its ability as well as under utilizing the turbo you just paid big $$ for. You’re just adding a less responsive turbo for some extra bragging numbers of power in that case.

If you’re not willing to dive into the fueling world you’re better off just getting a is38 with the eqt OTS tune, you’ll have slightly lower numbers on paper but you’ll have a more responsive fun street car with a better dollars per smiles return than a under utilized hybrid setup
