  2. MKVI GTI
    I am looking for some OBD apps so i can keep track of how my car is performing but i could not find information on how should the car be running to be considered 'normal' for Stage 2+. In fact i couldn't find info on how a regular stock MK6 should be performing. Is there any tech expert here...
  3. MKIV GTI
    Hey guys, I own a mkiv 2002 1.8t gti. The performance parts I have into it so far are a stage II apr tune along with a 3" catback exhaust, and a stage 1 clutch. I owned a 2001 with the same exhaust and a different tune before and for some reason my current rig doesn't perform as well. When I...
  4. GTI Owner's Rides
    Hey just figured I would add to the list of build threads on here. I have a 2003 VW GTI MKIV 1.8T with around 90k miles. I am going for an all black with subtle red look, I don't want the car to look like a ricer though. I will attach some before and after pictures of some of the stuff I have...
  5. New Member Introductions
    I have a 2007 with a DSG transmission. For the most part I know that these cars are descent cars mechanically. My car is bone stock with a CHEAP Megan cat back. What I want to do is get to a number. Happily I want to me at a low to mid 13 second car. I understand more power comes more problems...
  6. MKV GTI

    Hello ladies and gentlemen. If you would be so kind as to share which tires you run in the summer, that would be simply stellar. In your post please indicate: 1. Size (2xx/xx/1x) 2. Brand 3. Model 4. How long you've had them 5. Your driving style 6. How they perform (comfort, handling, noise...

  10. MKIV GTI
    Can anyone give me the top three bolt on things I can do to modify my '99 GTI 8 valve AEG engine with automatic trans? It's rated at 135hp. How can I get an extra 40 to 50 hp out of this thing? I am only looking for rally like performance mods that don't significantly rob me of gas mileage...
  11. MKV GTI
    So, recently I found a local dealer who could get me a Megan downpipe shipped for $243 CDN with no tax. I have seen them go for $195 online but by the time I pay shipping/brokerage/tax it would be a lot more to get it to Canada so the dealer option seems the best way to go. It seems like an...

I want to mod my car but i dont have a large budget (around $200) and i also DO NOT want my car to become a ric3er. but i do want it to have a respectable and classy sound upgrade that is also pretty easy to install...

  16. VW GTI SUSPENSION
    Due to the nature of winters around here in Ontario, I really couldnt afford to keep my ContiContact Pros on. So after some research I narrowed down my options for winter tires to just two candidates: Toyo KX and Michelin Pilot Alpin PA3. When comparing online reviews of the two tires i quickly...
  17. MKIV GTI
    I am a high school student with not to much money, but I want to have some fun with my 03 gti 1.8. I first thought I could put a chip in and then as I did more research, I learned the price is around the $500 range. Is there any somewhat cheap/fun projects (under $100 would be nice) to give my...
  18. MKV GTI
    http://slrmotorsports.com/shop/l/Volkswagen-Golf-1990-2011-Performance-Chip.html this is advertised on this site so I decided I'd at least give it a look. What does everyone think? Does it work? It probably voids warranty. Opinions?
