  1. Gen1 Service Issues
    So after reading a bunch of forums and watching a lot of videos, I decided that a straight pipe from the second cat back would be a good choice so that my car could breathe more and it hopefully wouldn’t cause back pressure problems, for about a day everything was fine and now at red lights my...
  2. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    This may be a silly question, but is there an option to only replace the intercooler inlet and outlet piping with silicone hoses and clamps vs. the o.e. plastic tube with oring piping currently on the car? If not, can I just buy the o-rings themselves or do I need to buy the entire piping? I...

  4. Gen2 Powertrain
    Hey just curious if the new 1.4 would sound decent with a muffler delete? I can't hear the car at all and it bugs me. My old 1.8 at least had a lot of engine noise but even when this thing is at 6k you can't hear it.. Should I do a muffler delete to 2.25" piping or just put the same size pipe...

    Anybody know where to find intercooler piping? I don't need the big sets of piping or a $200+ manufactured one, which is all I seem to be able to find for some reason. I'd like to build my own set up. Any suggestions? Already checked the other "intercooler piping" thread and it wasn't much help...

    I was just looking into keeping the factory Intercooler but swapping out the plastic/rubber hoses. I'm looking for opinions or if anybody has done it yet. Thanks guys
  7. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Ok, I've read and read and read some more in researching things about intercooler piping on this site. Alot of threads are outdated (2011-2013) so I'm hoping that in the 2-3 more years that the cars have been on the road, that aftermarket companies have come out with just pipes instead of...

  11. Gen1 Diesel General Discussion
    The premise of Diesel is that it runs more efficiently on a very hot engine, compared to a gas engine. So, is the heat soak from the engine with a uncovered cone filter really matter in a diesel? I know it does for a regular gasoline engine... I think it would make it more efficient if the cone...
