Hey, in my defense, that's there for a reason. It was to soak up oil and coolant spills.
And unexpected brake fluid spills because I didnt have a 6.5 mm crescent wrench for the Wilwood brake kit lol.

Cleaned up the first Macan caliper, primed and painted the first color coat. It's VHT engine paint, the color is called Titanium Silver Blue. It's hard to capture with my crappy phone camera, but I would say it's a bit more blue than the picture shows.

Just going to go EQT OTS for Stage 2 93, currently Stage 1 91. I'm very happy with it, just wanted the car to be a bit noisier so that's why I got the exhaust goodies. I got a screaming deal on a used Baun downpipe (PO was upgrading to 4", lol) and I've got Jake building me a Vibrant resonated midpipe to dial in that perfect sound, but I may get impatient and run the downpipe sans the resonator ahead of time. I don't think there's a massive delta in price with boost weather sale anyway, so it might just happen.

Long term goal is EQT S2 IS38+ and stop there, the rest is just tires/suspension/braking. The car's a hoot, and I'm enjoying each time I do something and there's some more power and/or something new to enjoy about it.

My first impression of going from EQT stage1 to EQT IS38 and their OTS tune had me laughing. It’s still fun almost a year later. It’s going to be more fun once I get the full BAUN exhaust installed. I leave for work for a few weeks on Thursday and it is supposed to arrive on Tuesday. Hope I have time!

Drove past the shop my GTI is at and sighed at her sitting there. Long story short, my service dog in training suffered a broken leg and I learned this to be a devastatingly expensive blow. It has consumed all of my GTI money and then some. Surgery on leg to straighten the broken bones and several titanium plates later and 3 weeks of Vet hospital room and board and suddenly I'm 8k in the hole to this place. The good news is my boy is healing rapidly and returned home over the weekend,

Good to know, I am on the fence between the IS38+ or a hybrid (Vortex or Mamba). But I know I will have to get custom tune for the hybrid whish is pushing me to the IS38+ for now, if I go hybrid it will be MPI/LPFP and the funds are not there right now.
