Default ++ 2011 JSW 6MT Build ++

Build Thread

Update:
My DieselGate buyback appointment is Jan 11th, 2017. I'm going to be sad to see her go. Here's one of the last photos of her:




This is my 4th TDI, 2nd Sportwagen, 7th diesel, and the 6th that I've built up. I've never done a thread like this but always wanted to.

2011 JSW TDI 6MT, stock as can be.


Paid $18,600 with 67,400 miles. It was very challenging to find a black one with 6MT.

Brief history:

This was my Stage 2 2011 DSG that I sold a year ago after brief and shameful foray into Subaru for the sake of AWD (I tried very hard to buy this back from the new owner but he's in love with it).



Before that I had a MKV Stage 1+ 5MT. This was a very, very fun car that I sold to get into a wagen (family growing).

Malone states 133Hp/225Lb-Ft for "stock", so I'm +5Hp and +8Tq but on 3 dyno pulls the graphs were very consistent. I'm anxious to see what I have after Stage 2.

I'm impressed +33/+86. Feels every bit of it too .

For (2) reasons I went with wheels/cosmetic upgrades first over performance:

1. Still can't seem to bring myself to a decision on Malone Stage 1.5 or 2.
2. I need an alignment and wheel balancing and we're traveling to Seattle for Thanksgiving.

So my very, very first upgrade was to color match the side markers. I really liked the improvement on my white car (in post #1).

Here's what I sourced:


Also, my wheels are currently off the car and at my buddy's shop for painting. I did this exact same thing last year with my VW 17" Goals (Also see the white car in post #1 and the white X5d on the left in the photo below). They will be done in satin black as I've been really pleased with the first 2 sets I ran through him.



On the way up to Seattle for the holiday we'll stop by Achtuning for a pair of H&R DRA 20mm spacers:



This too is just a cosmetic thing for me. Last time I did it I didn't really notice any significant change in driving.

Interested in the tuning choice. I am about 2 weeks from stage 2 (but I'd love to learn more about stage 3 real world driving, install, etc).

It's good to know someone at the only company that makes gauges in the USA.

In my Stage 2 JSW DSG I had an OBDII bluetooth sender and the Torque app on my smart phone. I remember there being very few times in 'normal' even 'normal spirited' driving where I could run WOT long enough to see the ECU cutting off fuel due to EGT. I do remember getting up to 1600F but not very often. Anyway... we'll see

The 27mm Hotchkiss RSB is much beefier than stock

Also: There's a point I want to make and it's the type of information that motivated me to do this build thread in the first place.

Point 1: On my first CR140 JSW I bought a nice Ferrari red RSB from APR. I was running around saying it was the best $300 I spent on the wagen as it really shored up the horrible understeer. Anyway... it turns out APR just gets these from Hotchkiss, paint red and rebrand to say "APR" and charge $300 bones for them. The original Hotchkiss can be had for $200 & free shipping from Amazon. Even if you like the red color of the APR, the truth is you'll never see it as it's too far tucked up under the car. So, the point is buy the Hotchkiss one, not APR. I personally attest they are exactly the same besides the color, branding, and damage to your wallet.

I noticed your 20mm spacer grab. What wheel/tire specs are you going to run? I have 18x8 +37 wheels with 235/40/18 and they rub with stock suspension. I'll pull and roll when I lower it, but curious...

I'm just running the stock 17" LeMans. There appears to be tons of room. So much so I've considered moving the 20mm spacers from the rear to the front and getting 25mm or even 30mm for the rear. Obviously these wheels aren't super wide and I'm growing concerned about grip. Grip has been the #1 problem with my first 3 TDI's... even the 1.9PD Stage 1+ with wide TSW 18'S and new rubber. If I get bored enough at the end of all this there's a good chance I'll sell off the satin black LeMans for a set of VMR's or similar. An LSD is of interest too but I haven't priced it out yet.
