    So today, as I was looking into removing the head on my 2000 with a 1.8t ATW, I discovered some very disturbing things.

    Excuse my last large post, I was down, way down that day. :( :wink: And how can I escape this site? :lol: I was wondering about how much of a gain I will see with cutting out the suitcase and replacing it with two 20" glasspacks, and with a bit of 2.5 inch stainless piping from the...
