Seth - Bryans Road, MD

This past Sat. I purchased my first VW. Silverstone Grey, GLS 5 sp. I am a previous Acura lover so this is a huge move for me. I had to trade in my hooked up RSX for this :cry: . I am awaiting the 5k mark so I can start on the "improvement process". Any gtg's going on in this area?

GET RID OF THE BOV! :nervous:


Get a fine, fine, Forge diverter valve. Thew bov emits gases that the computer thinks is still in the intake stream into the atmosphere... in other words, air that should be there isn't because of the BOV!

not bad. kinda deep, not like the normal high pitch like the honda exhausts. but it gets a little loud at high rpm's. (at least my wife thinks so)
