Does this imply a new 2micron kit is imminent? Or another solution?
I did contact 2micron so balls in his court....if not i will cobble together another filter system some how.
Any plans to dyno after the new turbos?
No not yet, i never did a baseline so im not sure how useful it would be...but i know the power difference is beyond night and day

not many mods right now...new trans settings and really happy with that so much better....as for the tune and turbo it has been flawless and just a total animal for such a big suv. This is one of the best vehicles ive ever been in, mpg, towing power, power, comfort and unreal awd im in love.

Anyway newest mod 31 bfg at k02s and it loves to eat snow now







Great pics!
I like the Touareq even though I don't like big SUV's in general. Has your fuel mileage dropped a lot after the turbos, tune and 31" tires?

no mileage went up with the lack of crap in the exhaust and turbo didnt effect it either....i was getting mid 30s no problem...the 31s will effect it they are a 10ply and aggressive but i dont mind. Still should get 30 mpg or so
That shot on the bridge is such a great picture btw. Looks like something you'd see in a vw catalog.
Thank you sir

Muffler was gutted....really didnt make any difference, perhaps 2dbs. So this will do untill the rear section straight pipe gets built. I do really like the black tho now the muffler doesnt stand out and blends in...much better

little 0-60 pull.....now KEEP in mind its on 31 bfgs, so they are way heavier and the speedo now reads 10km/hr slower due to increased height. Aside from that old girl still pulls decent

my poor girl ate a deer....really impressed how well it handled a big deer and kept me safe and got me home.





Almost 10,000 dollars insurance later my baby is back....the body shop threw out my hids tho so i need to redo them but she looks good






Next mods up...full interior leds, mirror leds.

It's crazy how a deer hit that doesn't look that bad can cost you ~8K. :eek: Maybe with the new HIDs you'll be able to see that next deer a little further out and avoid taking your Touareg to the body shop. ;) Granted with deer there's never a guarantee they won't run into you. :(
Either way it looks like the body shop did a fantastic job and you'd never know the Treg was damaged. Looking forward to interior upgrades.

i seen the deer plenty fine...stopping at 60mph on snow and ice instantly is the trick

interior leds in...wow dome and rear passenger domes are no fun to remove lol.....cant wait for nice weather to clean the interior lol. Also replaced the hids with a new h7r (reflector housing hids) and new fog leds. Looks much nicer again.

Tomorrow door safety leds and mirror puddle lights hopefully

The Touareg looks great with the new LEDs. :D

I like the first pic in your last post. Looks like the snow is melting away in a hurry like it is here in Wisconsin.

It seems like you have been through a lot of adventure with this car. The build probably paid off.
