    Running a fuel cooler on a ~215/400 car under daily use

    I wanted to ask the hivemind about fuel coolers. A little upfront info: I have a 2003 ALH powered car. The build is pretty stout and it's almost complete. One of the smaller details left is the fuel cooler. Currently, I do not have a fuel cooler installed. The two obvious options are the OEM...

    Help me pick an LSD for my wagon

    I am working(painfully slow) on my wagon. I have purchased a 6 speed manual(thank you, Ryan) for my car. The engine is also receiving upgrades for a bit more grunt.

    WTB larger airbox

    I am in the process of building up my wagon and would like to find a larger airbox for it, since it will have a larger turbo. Anyone have a VR6/R32 airbox that would fit my MKIV Jetta? I'm located in upstate NY. Closer is better, but shipping is doable. Let me know what you have.

    Would anyone be interested in a Passat W8 cluster? I will post up pictures soon. Unknown miles, as it was bought for a spare for my dad's car, but we didn't use it. I think it can be adapted to use the screen and additional lights or if you want it for the gauge surrounds and spare parts...

    Did you upgrade to a fmic? How did you plumb yours?

    I purchased a fmic for my wagon. I am not sure on how to plumb it just yet. My goal is to be able to plumb it in such a way so that I could retain the space in the bottom outside grilles to fit OEM Hella foglights. The fmic I have has outlets on opposite sides, so the pipes will be on both...

The exhaust I'm planning will be a 3". The other option is if you have all the parts to make a VNT17(I will get...
