I only stay here to post to my build thread so I have a log of everything I've done. No one is doing anything interesting to this platform here or elsewhere. I think all forums in general are dying because everyone is moving to facebook

It is pretty upsetting that this platform is totally dying. Could've easily been competing against the Speed3 for the enthusiast market. Glad you're still working on yours though.

At this point, it's just a place where 9gag memes go to die. 9gag used to be the asshole; the bottomfeeder of the internet. So now the little shit pellets that somehow slip through the cracks to the general population end up plastered all over Facebook.

That's what you're missing out on.

The forums won't be replaced by Facebook, that format just doesn't work for troubleshooting, DIY, etc. I think people are just moving on to other platforms, mk7, etc. It's sad but most of these cars will be riced out by the next owners.

Well if you guys are bored, tell me what interesting things you've done on the 24v vr6... I'm bored with my car already. Been doing small interior upgrades in an attempt to avoid major power increases which cost major dollars...

edit - or interesting big turbo choices in the 2.0t tsi. Which is also major dollars in avoiding.

I believe you can say Jeff and Blaine. Either way Blaine doesn't have a soul so Christmas doesn't matter to him.

Even though it's got the first gen dsg, is heavier, and has double the Milage? It's a well-taken-care-of-car but if I boost it, the inclination is that we go whole hog and that means new everything to support.

Suspension, chassis bracing, water meth, body work. silly things like surface rust on control arms and old undercarriage bolts and rusty clamps. All hoses, bushings, older lines. If we are shooting for a big number I don't want to be constantly fixing little things because I cheaped out or an older part wore out. That's why I started building the tsi gti - it was new so I know everything about that car inside and out in terms of use and age of parts and any events that have happened to it.

All this and experiencing the whine of a supercharger on this little hatchback or a big turbo with this vr6 is so tempting
