Well, I just sent off the ECU for our R to IPD. They offer a core charge program, but I wanted to keep my original box, so I parked the R in the garage, pulled the ECU and FedExed it to Portland yesterday.<P>It's amazing how easy it is to pull the box out of an 850. The process is much more drawn out on VWvortex's Project Golf 1.8T that shares the garage with the R.<P>If you have 5 min and a screwdriver (don't even need to pull screws, just lift the plastic shell's tabs), that's how easy it is. I can't wait to feel the results.<P>Our exhaust has a arrived as well, so we'll be installing that over the next week or two. I'll keep you guys posted.
