One of our longtime customers, Kyle D., is back again, this time for a k04 turbo upgrade, TT225 injectors, VR6 clutch and some new blacked out headlights. Kyle's goal was to improve the performance of his 2003 Volkswagen GTi MkIV without sacrificing drivability or reliability. Kyle does a lot of city driving and an occasional autocross event, so getting him into a turbo with a quick spool was crucial. He already had Unitronic Stage 2 software tune, so we'll reflash him with the Unitronic Stage 2+ k04 program before he hits the street. With his added power, he needed a stronger clutch, so he opted to go with the competitively priced VR6 clutch upgrade and 14lb lightweight single-mass flywheel.
In prior visits to the shop, we fitted Kyle's car with Eibach Pro-Street coilovers, Eibach swaybars, replaced his swaybar end-links and built him a full turbo-back custom exhaust.
