Nice! Are you happy with the upgrade, do you feel any difference in the turbo spooling or boost ?

I love that you and I have the same cars with just a 41K mile in mileage. Yours was much more loved than mine, I'm still doing paint correction from prior neglect.

I haven't driven it that much, so can't really say that yet. The peace of mind, however, knowing that the intake temps stay cooler over the full range, that feels good.

:thumbup: to the passion red VRs!

Nice work! You made it look very easy. I just did this 2 weeks ago and I feel like I lost a year or two of my life through the frustration (mostly due to my own incompetence). Looks like yours turned out great!

Weekend projects...replaced the e-brake internals on both P2's. (sorry, no pics)

Re-badge Mod
Basic steps: First put painter's tape above and below the letters for a straight line. Removed the V O .. V O using fishing line followed by a decal eraser on a drill...worked slick. Polished the area up to remove residual marks, removed the old adhesive tape, put new 3M molding tape in the letters, marked off 10cm center points, re-mounted letters. Looks good :thumbup:


And, we hit 100 days of this mess...

What's the little mark on day 68 and the different color on day 89?
The 'candle' was my son's 17th birthday.
The red mark was our region's (NY Hudson Valley) Phase 1 reopening
The orange mark was Phase 2
We now have a yellow mark as of Tuesday for Phase 3

Getting our tree this weekend. It's going on the XC but I added my magnets for a quick photo yesterday. Wasn't sure about placement, and yours look a lot lower than mine.
