The bang for buck doesn't line up with what they want to spend money on. Personally, I see a lot of value in a line lock and is on my shopping list. A lot of other people probably like it but would rather spend money elsewhere as its not important.
    Gd damn it

    i meant to pos rep you Klips, my bad. POS ipad

    I 100% agree. Matter of fact the AR line lock is sitting in my office and being installed Monday.

    The rotors are Z4is rotors and they're on my list as well as the vac diff cover, upgraded rad fan, DSS half shafts and the stable energies Li ion battery.

    The Racing Brake two piece rotors are 19.7X lbs, Z4is are 22.8X lbs, Stop tech 22.5X lbs compared to the OEM 23.7X lbs. RB rotors are twice the price but seem like they're the best option



    • IND Carbon roof



    I'm trying to compile race seat and brackets weight data. If anybody has some in the mean time the feedback would be appreciated. A 3300# race ready N54 should be attainable.

    I don't know much about the LOBAs, i know for the TSI engine (Found in the GTI/GLI) many people will opt for a KO4 or Frankenturbo as the LOBA is a bit over price for their power.

    However i do know it's fairly common on the FSI engine found in the Golf-R. Seems like good power, but I can't really speak on it.

    I have looked into Loba hybrid turbos before... For my Touareg TDI haha. They seemed like nice people but always took over a week to get back to any of my emails!

    Also, what's up with the completely unwarranted level of aggression by that one guy? Seriously he's acting like the OP personally wronged him. Way to contribute to the stereotype that we're all aggressive d-bags man.... Personally I think this list is a great idea. I had never even realized that VAC offered head porting for these motors! That's totally useful to know.

    You didn't even list a single turbo conversion which is more rare(and useful) than most everything on your list.

    A lot of the stuff you listed are not on people's cars for good reason...


    edit: Why/who needs welded reinforced strut towers? I wasn't aware ours were weak.
    Man did I miss the part in the list where it said "MODS YOU MUST BUY RIGHT NOW!!" ? Because you seem awfully mad about something... Seriously why did you even come to this thread if all you were going to do was $#@! on it? I don't see you making threads for the common good.

    In Torgus defense it was Monday morning. Nobody wants to hear about throttle body spacers on a Monday morning.
