Golf mk6 / LOTS OF MK6 GTI EDITION 35 QUESTION PLEASE HELP
« Last post by sheraaz4321 on 21 October 2017, 23:52 »
Hi guys new here. Owner of a black edition 35 gti.  I have a few questions if you guys could help me out!
1. Exhaust - Looking at getting a miltek downpipe. But which sounds better between a sports cat or a decat and whats the difference between 3inch and 2.75inch. I will be looking to remove the middle silencer and get a twin custom back box from Tony Banks with black tips. Would this be too loud with the sports cat or decat? Has anyone got videos of there car with a custom exhaust or a miltek sports cat or decat?
2. Remap - Will be also looking to get a remap very soon. Heard R TECH are the best. Currently have dfb+, r8 coil packs, ngk spark plugs and in the process of buying an intake. Looking at the racing line intake, is it any good or is there any better ones you would recommend? For stage 2 would i need an intercooler as well or would an intake full exhaust system with downpipe be enough? What figures would i get for a stage 2 map or is better get the HPFP and go stage2+ but its like 600quid for hpfp in question is it really worth it? Lastly has anyone got any graphs or figures for stage 1/1+or 2/2+ and could you list with what mods you achieved them figures.
Sorry for so many questions. But any help would be really appreciated!!!
Thank you

I’ll do as please, just as Jeni does.
If you don’t like my comments, don’t comment on them.
It works both ways
she's only asking questions so it's a bit harsh having a dig

Decided today that enough is enough... The engine needed putting back together. Got the head back on the car, bolted and torqued down, put the 272 camshaft back in, lined up my timing marks from when I removed it, re-connected everything and then realised that because I left the downpipe off thinking I could fit it from under the car after the head was on, I realised too late that there's not enough room to put the downpipe on! Luckily I think I can get away with taking the driver's side driveshaft off which should give me the room to fit the downpipe properly.

Progress shots:




Still have a few more parts to get hold of to finish it all up but it's pretty much ready to turn the key and see if it even fires up. I'm dead worried I'll of messed the timing up or not tightened the cambelt tensioner properly so may re-check all that before I fire it up for real. Really don't want to trash this engine at this stage.

The reason I went with the 272 cams is that this isn't a daily driver, so a poorer low end and idle doesn't really bother me, plus I'm hoping with the flowed head and manifolds that it'll be OK for low end anyway. It's in the mid to top range where I'd like to see it come alive as I want to enjoy driving this car properly once it's done, as it has a really nice chassis set up at the minute but I may end up re-working that at a later stage.

Hopefully soon I can show a video of the car running and driving under it's own power!

I have one on order too, due at dealer 27th November, nearly went for the White Silver myself but eventually went for Isaac Blue.
Great colour is White Silver, really suits the car, proper head turning colour  :smiley:

Same as me Ainsworth! I'm picking up my Isaac Blue GTD on 2nd Nov, I only ordered it at the begining of the month but it's a lease and they already had it in waiting  :smiley:

Golf mk7 / Re: Are trim panels removed for the 142 point check

Nothing to be concerned about.

The checks are comprehensive and you will find that cars generally mechanically at least are prepared to a high standard. Most likely something was identified which they are rectifying as part of the multi point check.
