@Nataraki,

ok naman, walang problema. Reliable talaga iyong H2Sport follower. Magmula noong nilagay nila wala akong na-experience na problema sa makina. Walang mis-fire, walang HPFP issues. Parang oem talaga ang quality although Stage 2+ na to, kaya niya kahit big turbo.

Matagal kong gagamitin tong tsikot na to kya might as well ayusin iyong mga problema and so far ala namang worse na na-encounter tungkol sa follower. At least walang hassle. Walang downtime, regular maintenance lang.

Oh congrats! Di ka mag-sisisi. Pag 2+ ka na, upgrade ka ng FMIC, dahil pag mainit, di kaya ng stock intercooler.

As for the cam follower, sakit ng ulo talaga, noong malaman kong may issue, no more backing-out. That's why i got it done and over with. Buti na lang malapit ang H2Sport sa amin kya pinagawa ko na.

Although alam ko, marami nag-disagree at maraming debate tungkol dito, but it's ok. It's not their car, it's mine. They can't help me when my car goes down, let alone take my family from piont A to point B if the car went down. All they can say is sorry dude. Dami lang talagang kupal dito sa forum na ito eh. Anyways, I'm happy with that kit, and it's awesome what H2Sport did :happyanim:

I'm glad na satisfied ka naman sa result, i might consider it in the future we'll see how it goes. Magkano nga uli inabot materials + labor? Wala ka bang plano mag K04 in the future? I'll do stage 2+ and after that contemplating on K04 maybe depende kung may pera:wink:

Mas mura pa noon, umabot mahigit $600+ kasama na parts at trabaho pero dinagdag ko iyong APR pump + labor noon kya umabot sa isang libo.

Actually iyong H2 kit $350 lang noon (introductory pricing), medyo tumaas na ng isang daan nong nabili ko, ngayon almost $500 na, sa ka-dedelay ko di ko na nakuha ng $350, kasi siyempre ni-research ko muna bago kunin. Sinigurado ko rin na talagang di papalya. With blessings naman proven talaga. No problems at all.

As for K04, di muna, sticking with 2+ for now. But if $$$ permits, BT route na ko. To be honest, itong FSI BPY, it's just very strong engine. Hoping na tumagal sa akin tong tsikot na to.

stage 2+ na ko for about 1 year and 2 months and compared to stage 1, it's a big jump for me ha, in my personal opinion that is, others may vary. Noong stage 1 ako, it was great pero afterwards nagsawa ako kaagad. Medyo kulang pa, kaya i jumped in to stage 2 after 6 months from what i remember.

That 3" DP really opened up the car, pero may slight fueling issues and on highways may slight fuel cut especially pag WOT, bigla na lang parang may pull-back tapos biglang arangkada, akala ko i had clutch issues, pero hindi, kya sabi ko, i need to go 2+ pero i wanna really find out how reliable iyong H2Sport kit so more research after that, after a few more months, i decided na kunin iyong h2sport, and since nandoon na rin ako, i jumped into going 2+. And the difference is amazing. Wala nang fuel cuts, WOT from 1500rpm all the way walang jerkiness and pull-back. Like i said, pag 2+ ka na, you won't regret it.

Pag 2+ ka, you'll be able to run against/keep up on a stock EVO 10, and stock BMW 335i, and also Infiniti g35 at g37. It's a good feeling knowing the car has opened up really. I ran against a speed6 one time and to keep up was awesome. :happyanim:

iyong choke at pullback sa stage 1, di ko naranasan. Noong naging stage 2 ako saka ko naranasan at medyo madalas. Especially pag merging sa hwy at WOT, all of a sudden biglang choke tapos pull back, tapos ok. Kaya nag 2+ ako. At this moment, all rpms during WOT walang power choke, maramdaman mo kaagad ang torque. Pag tingin mo sa back mirror...malayo na pala natakbo...

Merong meets din dito ng VW, I do know so north side area where I live, sometimes may mga weekly meets. Di pa nga ako nakapunta. Minsan lang akong nagpunta kasama ko cousin ko, ala pa kong VW that time. Tinulungan ko siyang ayusin iyong VW Beetle niya. Helped him rebuilt the engine, doon na rin ako medyo nagkaroon ng interest.

Until such a time noong makita iyong MK5, i said to myself, that will be my next car, and sure enough, got myself an '08. Sa eastside ako.

How about you? Madalas ka ba sa mga meets diyan sa area mo? I do know California is pretty big when it comes to cars of any kind, be it exotic, jdm or euro.

sa Pangasinan ako, ikaw saan ka sa atin?

as for meets, ok lang iyon, di naman importante ang meets para sa akin. Socialization lang iyon although hindi masamang maki join, most of the time pag may pamilya at trabaho wala ng oras.
