"scraped something".....yeah that's one helluva scrape right there

I know exactly where it would have happened too. The place my daughter goes after school has a hell of a speed bump getting into their parking lot. If you don't take it just right, it'll hit it like crazy.

And go figure, the day I'm getting everything buttoned up, it's pouring rain and I don't have dry roads to get any good pulls in for logging 😭

Same thing happened to me but I didn’t need to do logs just wanted to go have fun. Was like a kid on Christmas morning the next day 🤣

Well, Vortex has about 60 miles on it (first start up was at 60,938 on the odo), and everything seemed to go fine with the install. No noticable leaks from anything, no weird sounds, and monitoring everything looks to be good.

Got some logs over to Sneeky, and we'll see where it goes from here!

Busy weekend with the GTI. Got the IE FDS Intercooler installed with the Unitronic Charge Pipe Upgrade Kit. Also converted the AWE Tuning Touring exhaust to the track version cause I wanted the exhaust to get louder. Little did I know that the drone side effect was going to be insane when paired with the Trackslag DP o_O.

And at last the VW Start/Stop feature got the "Off" fix after installing a bypass harness

Installed VWR springs + Koni Yellows. The Konis are set to 1 turn from soft in the front and 1/2 turn away from soft in the rear. Drives great, but I still have a bit of body roll that I want to tackle. I'm not sure if it's due to the springs being too soft, or if I just need a larger OD RSB.

Also, my ride height went from 14.75" to 13.5" in the front, and from 14.5" to 13.25" in the rear measured from center of hub to fender. I guess the car had a .25" reverse rake on stock suspension (mine is at 9,900 miles). May have to get the TT pads to fix this.

I really love the sound. The resonator on the AWE Touring quiet the exhaust sound too much. The TS DP I have is catted but the exh drone like crazy from 1800-2100 rpm.

I found a used AWE track near me, for $650CAD, I also have the UNI DP... I don't mind a loud exhaust, I'm used to it actually, you're making me want to pull the trigger.

Yes, I'm in San Antonio. The DP I have has the cat at the end of it versus all other conventional DP's that have them right after the turbo. Don't know if this is a possible reason.

I'm OK with loud, just hate drone.

Back in the day, I did a Perrin catted DP with Borla hush on a WRX, thinking it wouldn't drone. It was the oddest combo. Tons of drone at low rpms, almost as quiet as stock at high rpms.

Replaced the muffler with a Prodrive muffler and it was money. No drone and louder at high RPMs.
