Paid off in October. Thank you dieselgate for a sweetheart deal on this 4motion 6mt longboi beauty. Having a blast with this with some proper suspension mods at stage one. FBO path is next (clutch, IS38, IC, tune, DP)

In the meantiume I just treated myself with the DG six sigma, superpin, and bushings. I also just bought an OBD11 today.

Paid off tax:

Explored the incredible driving roads of the Poconos. My drive took me past one of my favorite buildings in the area, the Sterling Inn. Unfortunately the owner died in 2012 and it's sat abandoned since. Someone started clearing the overgrowth around the property so I have a feeling time is limited for this 1800s behemoth.

Hopefully they are clearing the overgrowth to use the building again. It's too nice to not use it. Great picture.

New cat-back installed today

Corrosion on the clamp in between the downpipe and resonator made normal removal impossible so out came the sawzall.



Cut the rest too, no turning back now





Just before tightening all the clamps



Finished up late so will start it up tomorrow. I hope there are no leaks I need a break from confined ground work!!!

Then took it to its (and my) 3rd Autocross.
Did great. No issues at all. Sad realization that it will never compete with the R or type R. Type R corners much better and the R puts down power where I'm just spin city. Also, the 5MT gearing is so long, have to downshift into 1st, where they can stay in 2nd. Did beat the only GTI there who was running re71r tires. Can't wait to get some 200tw tires. Still a blast.

Try an LSD if you're spinning so much. I wouldn't worry bout the higher HP cars. Sure it helps, but driver skill makes up for a lot of it than more HP. Keep the fun!

On the stock exhaust. What’s that triangular straight through part that’s closest to the downpipe? Resonator?

which catback did you go with? Any chance you can upload a sound clip and review in the morning when it’s all buttoned up?

looks killer!

Already have one, but if both tire lose traction, it really doesn't help.

1) gotta work on throttle control
2) should probably leave traction control on until then, but found on last autocross that I'm quicker with it completely off.

Looks like the Rev9/Beluga catback (pretty sure they're the same thing with different branding). I had got the Rev9 one, and it looks identical to that.

tdipaul, why did you cut the stock exhaust up like that?

The triangular piece is the resonator. Its a big, heavy mama

The exhaust is a Beluga and it fits well. The added hanger they supply is a nice touch, and adds one more than the stock setup. The tubes/welds seem to be of good quality but the clamps are a bit lacking though.

The stock exhaust isn't going back on so it was cut up for ease of disposal. I have nowhere to store it anyway.

After the kids school is done for the day will start it up and post a video!

Leave TC off. You'll be faster and learn throttle control quicker.
