    'vortex is now posting ads disguised as articles, but this one was intriguing. It's a pre-wash spray for removing dirt from the car before washing. I'm mildly sold on the concept of rinsing/removing dirt before washing, but my skept-o-meter is rising. It claims to be pH balanced alluding to...

    Well, I have been keeping my hands busy building up the DSM. Its debadged. I went with an Apexi Worldsport exhaust. Nice deep throaty sound with very little droning. Road race engineering is still working on a downpipe and hiflow cat for me. Wheels are 17" Enkei RS7s wrapped in Azenis...

    This morning I left the house and went to the dealer where a buddy works, to get my Spec Stage 2 clutch and lightweight flywheel installed. Everything was going well and when we finally finished, we ran into some issues. Upon starting the car up, there was a loud screeching sound. Once the...

    So, while my baby is in the shop, I have decided to get a handful of parts that I have been putting off until later. One of these parts is upgrading the brakes. On top of the added performance, I am also concerned w/looks. I feel that with nicer rims on the car, I don't want cheap brakes...

    I want to get one of these and I wanted to see if anyone else wanted in. I don't have the prices or the numbers needed yet as I just sent the email to ECS. On the site the upgrade goes for $699 with pads and hopefully if we get enough people we can get a nice price break. Post if you want in...

    Sad is the day… After having the SPEC Stage 2 Clutch and flywheel setup installed for just over 1800 miles there came a point where the noise was no longer livable. The deal was I had installed the SPEC stage 2 Flywheel and Kevlar Clutch set at the end of October. Drove with it for Nov and first...

    I have 15 psi currently and am ready to explore the breathing capability of the gt28r. My goal is 300 hp. I have added a few things since my last post and will run it down in a second. But my issue is tuning. I called Mike at tyrol sport and he told me that i needed 440cc injectors to be...

    Thanks in advance for your attention to this thread! I had a flashing cel last week and the Passat was running like mud. Def. a cylinder not firing/misfiring. My mechanic replaced my bad cyl. 2 coil, and still no spark. Injectors and plugs good. He suspected computer malfunction. New...

    I was trying to find out if anybody had actually had this installed? If so how was the perfromace gain and did you have to upgrade the engine parts as well?

    Little help for me please. 8) Anyone have any info on this? If both motors were pushing 300 hp, which one would be more reliable; the 1.8T Stage III, or a chipped 2.7T? Even though the 1.8T is smaller, I was thinking that it still wouldn't break as much. Or am I wrong? :???: Harry

    I bought a '84 BMW for a AutoCross project car. It has a 2nd stage cam on it, but I am not sure what kind. I do know that it is a pretty good sized one and you can tell by how the car idles. What I want to know is more about it. I know that it helps the air flow thru the valves? If anyone...

    I know it is a hypothetical question, but there is a size that is too small and a size that is too large. There is also too thick. Not only for performance with pressure dropping, but fitting behind the front bumper. I was thinking about 19 in long, 10 in high, and 3 in depth. What is...
