I don't know if I rock that HPA||| sign on the back. Not my style, but....

I personally like the mystery. Though I have a feeling it's going to start being an indicator that a GTI with a front mount isn't to be trifled with, though OEM-location intercoolers are a thing as well. So for those of us that are a little under-educated, can you give some information/details on that turbo?

Slightly worse than a Vortex from what I gather - IS38 Hybrid - good for around 450.

Stick it on the trim piece underneath the passenger vent

Neither. Keep it low key. Don't let them know what you have. It don't say EQT anywhere on my car...

Yeah I’m all for brand loyalty but those badges I’ve never been a fan of, just like when apr first had them on the Mk6s and you can show what stage it was too 😂

I like the “clean” look. The unassuming car, just enough to know it’s not quite stock, but leaves them guessing as you pull away.

After quite a wait, my BFI stage 1 tranny mount finally got here! I’m pretty sure the weather is supposed to be pretty nice over the weekend so the install will be my Sunday project.
