I've come back to look at your car a few times, I've said this to my wife since befoer I bought my GTI and I still mean it, I so badly wish VW offered a 2.0T 4mo Wagon in the states (AT specifically please) because I'd have one instead of the GTI.

What’s wrong with the 1.8? Only differences are the displacement and no exhaust VVT. Still capable of 50-100% more power than stock reliably and with OTS software. Also gets better gas mileage

I dont think anything is wrong with it, I just wanted more power.

My friend calls his 911 the "redneck porsche" because of the ~460/470 wheel numbers created by the LS3 hanging out back. I honestly believe that car is faster than the CBR600RR I had, I can honestly say it's absolutely the fastest car I've ever driven. I watched the road and the tachometer, if I wasn't driving it I don't think I'd have believed the speeds he said I achieved. I don't giggle like a schoolgirl often, but the Redneck Porsche makes me giggle uncontrollably.


Edit for puppy photobomb, I know Dog Dad Wagon is serious about the Doggy Tax.

What are the specs on those wheels? And did you have to do the fender screw mod, to avoid hitting it when going over bumps? Just got my new wheel, and sounds like i could be hitting the screw over bumps… mine are revo rf018x8, et40, ps4 225/40-18

Another friend of mine (who has also lost to that ls3 911 but dynos over 550) was out enjoying boost weather. Also, clutch and mounts installed, I still gotta get my powerflex hybrid dogbone insert in, but they did my trans insert, engine mount and drivetrain stabilizer. Feels absolutely amazing so far, only ~80 miles in. Also I need coolant lol

Just curious, what clutch you get, and how tuned are you?
