Welcome to the forum.

Congrats on the start of your new journey.
If you're not doing your own work, start with a tune instead of a new turbo. Even stage 1 really make it come alive. If you are, IS20 is a cheap start. There's a few on here with that setup. Just search their threads our maybe they'll chime in.

As far as the GTI exhaust, afaik, (but I haven't done it) you need a GTI rear valence. Not sure if you got that as well.

Welcome! Nice to see another 1.8 on here! There are a few 1.8 builds on here that are worth reading through for inspiration!

Bringing this thread back up, was thinking of going is20 on 87 through apr and was curious if the downpipe and 2.5” gti mid section is/was worth it. I’m already 2.5 from where the muffler was with a Muffler delete tailpipe pipe. Also what is a fair price to pay for the is20, I have one found that only has a few miles on it for $500
