Did you also need upgraded fueling components?

Hows the chatter on the SB Stage 2 Daily?
Fueling and block are stock, haven't needed to upgrade... yet

Good question, not a skill I've put to practice (shameful I know) so can't say.

Feel free to message me, happy to talk.

Insane... how's the spool compared to the standard IS38?

I don't have a reference point, came from a GTI and came from is20.

Boost comes on much later compared to the is20 but is expected. Their product page has the dyno sheet of you want to take a look.

Hey I'm from Surrey here, I picked up a black 2018 Trendline a few weeks ago, I've always wanted a Golf, GTI and R were out of the question at the time but I'll definitely be looking to get one at some point. I'm looking for any upkeep tips or mods I can do to my little base car. I am still relatively new to owning a car so I want to make sure I know the right stuff to take care of my car.

Mods I would recommend but aren't totally necessary:

Various VCDS/OBD11 Modifications (Remote windows, disabling seatbelt chime, etc.)

If you want more power look into a Burger Tuning JB1/JB4 piggyback for power increases of up to 35whp and 45wtq. http://www.burgertuning.com/vw_volks...JB1_tuner.html

DG Springs (OEM VW accessory) to lower your car from 1-1.25inches

Happy modding and welcome to the VW family!

Thanks for the reply, I will definitely be looking into some of those, I currently need to replace the rear badge as being new to cars and not knowing what I was doing I tried removing it so I could plastidip it and I chewed up the plastic with a flathead screwdriver. The only decent looking replacement I can find is at Deutsche Auto Parts and it's something like $100. Otherwise VW says I have to buy the whole assembly for something like $800...

Which part is needing to be replaced? Just the chrome emblem and itís thin plastic backing? Or the underlying handle/housing itself?

Dealership sells them for under $40. The backing comes with the emblem. I bought from the dealership for my GTI.

That is so weird, the dealership I talked to told me I needed to buy the whole assembly for $750, maybe I'll have to go visit one or something, I talked to the guy over the phone so maybe he misunderstood me.

You guys see this thread over on RevScence?

https://www.revscene.net/forums/7153...ike-candy.html

Apparently the VPD is issuing VI's like crazy, even hitting bone stock cars and telling them to get inspections because some guy got a VI ticket and decided to doxx the cop who wrote the ticket by posting his personal FB and IG profiles.
