    PSA: Check your rocker panel for rust

    After 13.5 years of ownership, I removed the rear wheel liner for the first time to attempt PDR on a recently acquired door-ding. The area where the wheel arch meets the rocker was filled with dirt/sand which stored moisture and caused considerable rust. I would have never seen this because...

    Golf R Internals Swap - Opinions Welcome

    I'm starting the tear today to swap MK6R rods and pistons into my K04 MK5 GTI. I picked up the rods/pistons (pictured) from a wrecked MK6R w/ 50k miles for $155 and will be installing them w/ new bearings and rings. I went back and forth on whether to go this route vs drop-in H beams, and I...

    I have a line on an affordable and low mileage rod-piston set from a Golf R and I'm contemplating putting them in my MKV as a winter project. My intention would be to shore up the bottom end in order to safely get more power out of my K04, plus I'm bored and this is the type of shit that I...

    FS: VF Engineering Intake

    I'm selling my VF Engineering intake for MKV GTI w/ FSI engine. I bought this new in 2008 and ran it for a couple years, probably about 30,000 miles with no issues at all. I eventually switched back to the stock intake because I'm over 30 and I wanted a quieter intake. I would probably use...

    Neuspeed P-flo steel or aluminium?

    Can someone tell me if the P-flo is steel or aluminum? I'm considering a filter on a stick for my K04, and I don't want a steel intake, I've had issues with rust on intakes in the past.

    For Trade: 24mm H&R Rear Sway Bar

    I would like to trade my 24mm H&R RSB for a slightly smaller aftermarket RSB. The bar is two way adjustable and was on the car for about 25k miles and is in perfect condition. I would be most interested in a H&R 22mm RSB, but I'm open to offers. I'm located in Northern New Jersey.

    APR 93oct K04 Requested Boost

    I was just flashed with the APR 93oct K04 tune for my 2006 GTI. I'm surprised by how high the requested boost is, as it is def higher than other APR FSI K04 tunes I've seen. Does this look right, or was I flashed the wrong tune?

    Driver gear springs and big sway bars...

    I've been running a 24mm H&R RSB with my Driver Gear springs and Eibach Prodamper shocks for about a year now and I'm not happy with the way the car just falls over on the front outside wheel. I'm wondering if I should go with the 28mm H&R front sway bar, or are DG springs to soft for that much...

    Southbend Clutch Questions

    Buzzing downpipe.

    I can't get my APR downpipe to stop buzzing/rattling while in reverse. I assume that the sound comes from the shift cables contacting the pipe as it only happens in reverse. Is there a fix out there for this problem?
