Glad to see you're messing around with this thing. What are the plans? Fresh stock build, or you gonna go heavy with it?

Today I bought .....
All 4 wheel bearing kits
new alternator, new air cond compressor and starter
Forge coolant lines
all new vacuum lines and fittings
new expansion tank
fancy Porsche caps for oil, expansion tank and windshield washer tank
new OEM radiator
new OEM fans
new battery cover
and of course the forged motor / big turbo build continues

I am getting ridiculous I think on parts replacement making almost everything new. I am sure I will be buying more. Maybe should not have declared this a "no budget" project.

Ordered Wheels

I ordered Konig Oversteer 18x8 45 mms offset wheels. I just got the car 10 days ago. Recently upgraded to Powerbass. 12" subs and Amp Sunday. Gonna lower it next. I'm going with a tried and true suspension setup. Konica and Nuespeed springs.

The plastic cover on those turns to shit quite quickly. I'd suggest removing the plastic cover and clear coating the carbon fiber and then you will not have that issue (it's what I ended up doing)

Ordered my H&R Super Sports. Booked my appointment for Alignment, Outer CV Boot changed (Drivers is torn), and having a CTS Turbo Catback installed on May 30th to be mated with my Raceland DP before I Get a Unitronic Stage 2 tune.
Where did you get this Baby on Board sign? I tried my local dealer and they do not have one.

Went with my cousin to pick up his new MK7 GTI. I want one so badly, but my company just bought me a brand new 2018 Ford Escape, every bit of which including gas and insurance is covered by them, so I couldn't justify getting the MK7.
