After 4 months waiting, dealer told me the car has finally arrived and asked me if I would like to see the car before the official pick-up date, it was really excited for me so I went to the dealer.... Car Spec: LapizBlue | 7-Speed DSG (DQ381) | DCC | Dynaudio | Pretonia |ACC My previous car is AUDI A3 Sportback 2.0T FWD DSG, and was running Pagpart's EFR7163 big turbo kit that made 530WHP & 660NM. The reason I got rid of my 7163 A3 is because I would like to play something different but AWD car, running big power 530WHP on a FWD car was really really terrible once WOT, kind of scary to drive the car at that time.
I think it's time to set up a thread for my Golf. I did this on MiniTorque a few years ago with my R53 Cooper S and all of a sudden it went like a bat out of hell and I spent thousands. That's what I plan on doing again, but on a better car, and this time, with more displacement, 4wd and a turbo. More potential for sure. Picked up the car mid-April. I was looking around and originally was planning on getting DSG, and in the Lapiz blue. Went to Leicester to test drive theirs, but when I arrived, I was told it had sold. Great customer service. Anyway, back in Northampton we have a Parkway dealer. I test drove their Black 14 plate Golf R, fully specced apart from Pro Nav (bummer) and fell in love. Torquey, comfortable and full of gadgets. Everything I was lacking in the Cooper S (a shelled out tin can with bucket seats). I left a deposit and picked it up the following weekend. I quickly got bored with the power. It just wasn't aggressive enough. Felt quick initially but the inertia of power quickly faded away. I was in communication with Will @ VRS Northampton (handy for me, only about 7 miles away) over email for a while, before I booked in for an APR Stage 1 Low Output map. This transformed the car - how it should have been from factory. The turbo has a noticeably more satisfying note, the car pulls significantly harder and hits 1xx with ease. But, I have to go all out, or nothing at all, so this is only the beginning. The clutch is slipping intermittently, so a quick call to Will to purchase their daddy of Paddle clutches. This should be fitted this week, along with VWR springs (coilovers are 100% in the pipeline, but not a necessity just yet). Then the fun really begins. Stay tuned.

So I was just about to purchase the Turbo Technica Intake Hose (and bell mouth) to be used with the stock airbox (and engine for now until stage 1 is done) I did some further digging online and now I am stuck in the mud as to if it’s even useful apart from looking great? So I’ve seen claims that it could potentially cause damage due to the silicone not having flex in and with the engine moving ‘substancially’ it could come off... This sounds logical but I can imagine it’s extremely rare but I’d have to keep an eye out. The extra 10BHP or whatever is insignificant to me so can anyone offer any experience as to how it has changed the cars driving feel, If at all? It looks great in the bay but for £180+ Im now starting to think it’s just a cosmetic mod moreso than a performance one.
