Gotta track it first. My old track wrx’s best was 2 minutes 2 seconds. As is I have apr stage 1 and dsg tune. Intake. Exhaust. Intercooler will be on before spring. And I’ll be getting tires before spring too.

the gti isn’t very heavy, the autobahn trim is because of the sunroof but it still isn’t bad. I’m hoping for 2 minutes 20 seconds with all those mods. From there I’ll probably dive into brakes and chassis.

but if I feel I need more power, it’ll come from the is38. It just seems crazy to pay that much for like 40hp more. The gains aren’t as great since I’m keeping the downpipe stock.

the biggest thing will be the driver mod. I gotta learn how to work around the lsd lag.
Well thought out plan.

Well thought out plan.
Thnx

I’m used to tracking awd. What sucks about tracking a proper awd car is that it hides your mistakes very well. It has a way of letting u get away with stupid mistakes. You really don’t get punished at all. Iirc @jay745 tracked an sti, maybe he can put into better words what I’m trying to describe.

I’ve taken the gti on some of my favorite roads. Making a mistake punishes u so hard, you really do lose a lot of speed. But the dsg recovers a lot of that fairly quickly, I don’t want to rely on that tho. I want to find the gti’s flow. And I think it’s just learning how to work around the lsd.

No changes. Mine says 16-18 delivery date since I'm on the west coast. I also paid the extra $16 for expedited shipping once they get it:cautious:😁.

Woah saw the ECS plastic duct. Nice looking more affordable part than the carbon jobs. I'll keep my stock unit with cutout and block off plate but this is a nice option.
