It is Magic... lol. Install hopefully today via myself. Will not have logs until either I pick up Cobb AP or get my old Aeroforce gauge back. I’m personally not to concerned about it being able to do the job. As long as it fits we are golden. .

Yes Sir. Hard to beat for 300 bones and good investment for the car. I will be able to give information on install today.

It fits in fine and took me about 4.5 hours myself. Went for drive and blew a hose off. Lol.

Nice that it fits. Clamps are usually crap on ebay stuff. You might want to consider a higher quality t-bolt clamp if it continues to blow off.

You have to take apart the whole front again to reattach the T-Clamp? You think it was an installation error or a poor t-clamp causing the problem?

Yeah, up on jacks and pop belly pan again. Obviously did not get one tight enough. No biggie. Clamps on this are way better than the factory stuff.

Well, time to spend more money if your logs come back good. Are the ambient temps still higher in your area? Would be good to test in California right now since it's still in the upper 80's.

Yeah, there was a little oh shit once I had the old one out comparing the size of the two. Glad VW was smart enough to leave ample room for an upgrade over 2x the size of factory. Magic...
