The TIP pipe should def make a bit more noise. The Autotech intake was on my list. Glad to see someone using it, I like the fitmentDid the 2nd oil change ever on my GTI at 12,000 miles. This time bought the oil at FCPEURO instead of the dealer. Looking forward to being able to return my old oil for the next oil change. I also see now that I’m low on coolant.

Installed the CTS Turbo Inlet. Very straight forward. Oddly enough I do think I hear more turbo noise paired with the Autotech intake and JB4. When I just had the Autotech intake, k&n panel filter, and removed snow guard I didn’t think there was much noise. Hmmm maybe it’s only because I was driving with the window down and listening for my turbo? Also when I installed the intake I didn’t have the Nameless Performance catback yet. Once again it was only $70 shipped so whatever.
*0w-20 in a turbo motor just doesn't feel right to me. With DI dilution and sheer factor the MPG savings just doesn't seem worth it. Add to that a tune and additional HP/TQ. Then you realize its OEM spec and OCI is 10k. Man I don't like it.
