Today I painted the calipers red if anyone cares haha. I mean it does make a huge difference compared to a pail, rusty color as mine was. I grab a picture of that tomorrow.

So I was having inconsistent boost and vacuum for awhile and recently checked my hoses and found a huge gash in my turbo inlet pipe. Since I plan a tune soon enough I figured might as well upgrade now so I bought this:

A Eurojet Turbo Inlet Pipe-should be on it's way and here in a couple days: eurojet-turbo-inlet-hose-upgrade-mk4-gti-gli-L.jpg

After I install the Eurojet TIP I'll save up a few paychecks and purchase a 42DD 3" Downpipe with high flow cat as well and BFI's dogbone inserts stage 1 (thanks to help from many here.) After that comes a APR D1 DV, get some Forge hoses, and a front mount and I'll be ready for Stage 2 or Stage 2+ from Gonzo hopefully.

Working at a Volkswagen dealership is nice, since I'm not the best mechanic they usually install my parts and for damn cheap ;) I'll get pics up when I install the TIP.

Thanks guys. A little delay on the TIP it won't be installed likely until Monday or Tuesday. My buddy at the VW shop is going to help me. It's will be 10X easier with a lift and proper tools.
Wish I had a lift!!

Got the TIP installed today with a little help from my mechanic friend. Took us about 45 minutes and make sure if you do this please lube all the hoses because it is a tight fit and is a pain in the ass!

So I told him about my issue with my brakes, they just don't work as well as they should and he found that my rear passanger caliper is leaking brake fluid and also the line is semi-gashed. So looks like I need a new caliper and gotta replace the line.

Also I always had an issue when I let off my brake pedal a quiet consistent rush of air would come from my pedal. He said it could be my brake booster which would cost a fortune. Anyone else have any idea's what that may be?

notice any difference performance wise?
In a way yes, first off you can hear the turbo a lot better, it reaches peak boost quicker, and holds boost a lot stronger and more reliable.

It just feels great to be because I had a gash in my stock TIP since I got it and if I gave it a little acceleration it would sputter the boost and I would feel like I was in a rocking chair. Def. plan to do the rest of the hoses before a tune!
