My car wasn't running good in the fall and i tried to get a retune, but something was still wrong and couldn't get it sorted out. I was going to buy and AEM v2, but lets just say things escalated quickly and this where i'm at.

Old Setup with my Iforged Aeros




Old Setup: OG SRT Turbo Kit PT72GTQ - GTE Bottom End - HKS 264's I/E - Non-vvti - V160 - Modified fuel rail dual feed/return setup - Dual Walbaro Pumps





Sold the Iforged Aeros and picked up these WELD RT-S 15x10 275/50-15 ET Streets





Had to ditch my Eibach Pro Springs for CX Racing Coilovers so my wheels could fit





Upgraded to some LQ9 Coilpacks



Ditched my old HKS BOV for a Tial Q



Needed bigger injectors for my power goals so I went with FID 2000CC Injectors thanks to Jonathon @ THMOTORSPORTS





Out with the Haltech and in with a ProEFI 128 with flex fuel thanks to Alpha @ Induction Performance



Ordered a new XS Power top mount manifold and downpipe to clean up the look of the bay. The manifold is going to be modified for a vband wastegate (Tial 44mm)





The car is now dropped off at M&S Performance to get put together :grin: They will be building me a custom intake manifold and piping.

Power goals are between the 700-800whp range on e85.

I should have more updates in the next 2 weeks or so.

Alpha said he would stop making power on my car at 650WTQ :) Im hoping to make in the high 7's or low 800's on e85 the way it sits

Like the MK4DR in the title, the slicks and also nice to see how things have escalated for you... straight from 'needs a retune' to it now needs 7-800whp. :):)

I know for me, what started off relatively simple (stock clutch originally went), kept progressing more towards where I wanted to be. Good to skip a few steps along the way
