Updated the GTI mods...and yes I need to update the Passat pics.  But I like her when she was sexy and just cannot bring myself to change them.

Make sure those Pancake hose clams are on there really well. I blew my hose off on the dyno, hehehe.

Funny thing is it put down 6 more ft-lbs @ 264.38 on that run than my best with it attached properly (258.36 ft lbs). Guess they do run best right before they pop something ;)

I installed the lower IC pipe last night and took her for a drive.  I did not expect a big change in performance, but it finished my intake for the time being (new FMIC).  The only thing I found that could (but must likely won't) cause issues is if I fully crank the wheel left, it lightly rubs up against the tube.  I normally do not lock the wheel that far, but I wanted to see if there would any issues.

There shouldn't be. Are you sure the mounting bolt up top is straight and snug?
I don't recall mine hitting at full lock.

Also, you should be kind to your CVs anyway. I try not to ever hit full lock especially when moving.

Congrats :D

Everything is mounted correctly, it may have to do with the wheel tire combo that we each have.  That's my guess at least.

I agree on the CV, I try not to fully lock the wheels either way.

Oh, and the RSB will be here on Tuesday!  :twisted:

Added a couple of on order stuff for the GTI.  The AC trim should be in today and the new headlights should be in around Wednesday, I hope.

*Update*  AC trim installed and lights have arrived.   :woohoo:
