These bolt-up to the factory exhaust after the catalytic converter, replacing the heavy and restrictive stock muffler with a better flowing muffler. . There is a mechanic friend I know and thinking of using as I know I will have free access to the workshop and watch throughout the whole thing. . Will it be bad to go from Castrol to Motul? Unless your goal is to create a tire smoking burnout machine, adding power and reducing weight is useless without the traction needed to effectively put it to the ground. Some people like to run thicker oil if they have modified engines. I am switching to it on my next oil change in these next two weeks, already have 5 quarts in the other room.
Some models will even have two catalytic converters. The rubber bushings wear out fairly rapidly in my part of the country, from road salt in winter to high temps in summer. If you are an active contributor to the sub, you are already approved to edit. Just the sound is worth the investment! If you can increase traction you increase performance. The down pipe is the first section of the exhaust directly off the turbocharger and contains at least one catalytic converter. I have used the Aussie Penrite oils before which were great. You may damage your car or void your warranty.
Money is not an issue. Cheers I've used Liquimoly Top Tec 5w-40 before which was great. Do all modification at your own risk. When looking to go stage 2 or above, a performance down pipe is a must! A quality high-flow catalytic converter will perform in line with a catless setup without the smell and increased carbon emissions associated with test pipe designs. Caution: Make sure to do your research before modifying your car. Golf R and Scirocco posts are welcome.
Hence my question to those who have also taken this approach previously. Check out our Mk6 intercooler here for more information: 7. A cold air intake does just what it says, it helps provide colder, denser air to the intake systems of the engine through a larger diameter filter and smoother, more flow optimized piping. Be very mindful of what intercooler you decide to go with, as not all intercoolers are created equal. After going to Fastivus and meeting their Motul repb and talking with a bunch of event-goers I'm switching to Motul at my 60k mark in these next two weeks. Aftermarket spark plugs have been proven to increase performance and efficiency.
Tired of answering the same questions time and time again? Just after the best oil for the R. I would say Brakes, for the mk6 especially. Also allows me to get under it to inspect etc. Be sure to , keeping it around the 5,000 mile range. This design helps ensure that the charge air is the coolest temperature it can be, thus increasing your performance. Now, my next question is i know when draining the oil not all of it drains completely. There's fairly frequent discussion of what you should consider.
A quality intercooler will dramatically cool the charge air from the turbocharger resulting in more power and efficiency. Just like stock intakes, stock exhausts can be restrictive and reduce the potential for power and sound. Turbo-Back Exhaust Just as it sounds, turbo-back is a complete exhaust from the turbo all the way to the back of the car. Hi guys, My 2012 R is due for its 20k service first one since I've owned it. Know a lot about mechanics and modding? Aftermarket downpipes include high-flow catalytic converters and larger diameter piping for a huge increase in flow and big gain in power. You can expect 15-30+ horsepower gains depending on the turbo and tune setup. No one but yourself is liable for mishaps.
Famed wheel manufacturer has been quoted to say that for every 1kg 2. This, of course, translates into more horsepower. This exhaust setup replaces the restrictive factory components with increased diameter piping, down pipe, choice of resonator, and lighter muffler. . . .
