I'm looking forward to this. Please take a lot of pics. I plan to follow a very similar upgrade path and can't wait to see this unfold.

Good Luck!

Looks familar!

Once you get RC4+ or RC5, It's going to be a different animal! I've had my setup for just over a week and I love it!

you are doing exactly what I did... all your mods at one time...practically the same setup as me too. The first time you drive it will be awesome...assuming it all works right.

One suggestion, I would definitely open up that exhaust to help spool up and lower EGT's. Of course, you will want a tune to go with the hardware... I have rc5 with practically the same setup and its pretty nice. Have fun!

VNT 17/22 went in tonight along with the 3" OMI....

We adjusted the boost valve and the thing popped off less than a mile down the road... we got er back on strong though.... 21 PSI sustained.... this turbo really doesn't spike much if at all.... I like.

I'll go back on Thursday for some more.... 11mm pump, PD Lift pump and hopefully the PP502's will all be in at the end of the night.

After that, probably next Tuesday, It'll be the PD150 IM w/2.5" race pipe, EuroJet SMIC, 3 Bar MAP, and the upgraded inter cooler piping...

Then the lowering springs and it's off to Impexfest for the VR6 air box and RC5!!

Yea, I checked NYS DMV and the "RC5 TDI" plate is available.... I've also got some more OEM letters/numbers in the mail for the trunk.... I got the all red TDI badge, and a V5 badge to make RC5 on the left side of the trunk where the JETTA badge used to be....

stupid things.. the stock upper intercooler pipe won't fit the 2.5" PD150 racepipe, so we had to put the ALH intake back on for now until the intercooler piping arrives.. The eurojet SMIC was modified to fit a beetle, so we're going to have to engineer something to work on the Jetta.. We were going to put the 3bar MAP sensor in last night but one of the scews broke, and I didn't want to chance breaking the other one because it was pretty late, and I didn't have the energy to take the bumper off and whatnot to fuss with it.. I like my 99.5 with the sensor in the upper pipe..

Oh yes it does fit. It's tight but I have made it work.

The rest of sucks ass.... and I don't blame you for waiting another day. Being tired and frustrated is not a good thing when wrenching on cars.
