I tried searching to see if anyone really did build threads on here. I know I'm not doing a full ground up or conversion build but I thought it may add some flavor to our forum <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">. Enjoy!<p>So here are some stock photos<br><A HREF="http://img21.imageshack.us/my.php?image=012edit.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/4251/012edit.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://img23.imageshack.us/my.php?image=013ijy.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/4673/013ijy.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><br><A HREF="http://img509.imageshack.us/my.php?image=015edit.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/5808/015edit.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>

Re: (stealthS60AWD)

I put in my EST SRI this past Saturday and went pretty well. Has been good so far. You can definitely hear it sucking air/turbo spooling and the recirc dumping back into the intake. So far it hasn't been annoying and is not noticeable during cruising. <p>Will try and get pictures tomorrow of the intake. It's been raining the past two days <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 2007 S60 AWD- Build Thread (stealthS60AWD)

KW variant 2 coilovers came in last week. Had to cancel my front camber kit cuz the front struts come with an upper mount bolt on the bottom like the H&R kit that is adjustable <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://img11.imageshack.us/my.php?image=009hhk.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img11.imageshack.us/img11/5071/009hhk.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://img4.imageshack.us/my.php?image=010dtb.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/9886/010dtb.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>

Re: 2007 S60 AWD- Build Thread (stealthS60AWD)

Here is the pile so far. Minus rims, tires and catback. The boxes and stuff closest to the wall is just random stuff not parts....but Tupperware and a Guitar stand may add like 15 WHP <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://img21.imageshack.us/my.php?image=001ast.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/8053/001ast.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>Still thinking of getting 35% tint in the back, remote start w/ turbo timer function and maybe HID lows and fogs.

The thing is...I am driving back home 400ish miles to Rochester, NY from NH the first week of April for that week. I am trying to figure out if it would be wise to wait until after the long trip to do it all. I know the springs will still settle and who knows about other stuff.

I went and talk to the guy at the shop and said I should be good. I am def getting the work done on the 22nd and 23rd. I might also get a tint and remote start installed from another local place. So barring any unforseen bad things *knock on wood* the car should come through and hopefully look way better <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">. So I should be able to try and meet up sometime with some of you guys from the ROC back in NY with the new setup <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

You gonna do the "R" brakes? Pretty easy install but a bit pricey

Will be going back after they settle to change the height or dampening if needed.
