JerseyDrew's 2016 GTI S build, a.k.a. Jersey Devil

After much delay, the time has finally come to create my build thread. I bought my car back in June '17 with a little over 14K miles on it and I am the second owner; my car currently has 80,000 miles. The original owner traded it in for a Mustang GT but before doing so, he installed a AWE Track cbe and a COBB intake. In the little over 3 years that I've owned her, I've added a ton of stuff to make it a 528 whp and 433 wtq GTI. I will be building the block soon and have all the parts for it except for the rods, which I am still waiting on. Once I have everything, we will pull the motor and begin the build. Also, Dan from DBV2 will be giving me a V3 TBB to go along with my built motor so it will be a 600+ whp GTI that is going to be strictly a 1/4 mile track car. I am going to gut it out as much as possible for some weight reduction. Once everything is put back together, Ed and I will have to work on a new tune for the bigger turbo and built block which I will have done on a dyno. Then, when that is finished and the motor is broken in, will take it to the track to start testing it out. Everything will be documented in here, which is why I am starting this thread. Now for my mod list...

Bought some new summer wheels this past Thursday. Picked up the Enkei RS05RR wheels in a Matte Dark Gun-Metallic color but they are currently out of stock so it will take 2 - 3 weeks for them to come in. So now my VMR wheels will be my winter wheels and the Enkei's my summer wheels.

Next will be some Belak wheels with slicks for the dragstrip.
