Did 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.
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 fitment

*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.

Check your coolant.

Are there still fitment issues with the hoses or did they finally update it?

As far as I'm aware, they don't consider it an "issue" that needs to be fixed, because the hoses are sized to fit their twintercooler to their upgraded replacement intercooler (not the OEM one) and their upgraded charge pipes. So when you're connecting their twintercooler to the OEM intercooler and OEM pipes, the hose is too big and has fitment "issues".

Last week swapped out my dented black fender (prius wanted the left lane and merged into me) with a like new grey fender.
It sure does give the car some character.

Later on in the week took my car to the shop to have some BC Coils put on 8k F/ 8k R. And did a canyon run with them a couple days later. The car feels brand new without worn out bouncy coils.

This is exactly right.

My biggest gripe is that APR doesn't tell you you'll need a secondary air filter. Alas, looks like I'm going without one for a few days.

Looks good otherwise.

Harder bend into the filter and narrower piping than the IE intake (and no SAI hookup) but it's prettier. And fewer pieces, it was a bit of a challenge getting all of the IE slices to line up to fit right on my car.

Did it come with the coolant hose re-route or did you already have that installed?

That looks stock.

Reflashed to stage 2 after reverting to stock tune to pass state inspection. It was depressing running the stock tune for the last few days.
