So, I'm definitely looking forward to working on this car. I've reorganized my to do list in order of what will probably get done. After the SVT header I'm thinking about getting an SCT tuner, but I'm hazy on the details. So there are experts that will take your diagnostics and create a tune for it? That's pretty awesome.

There sure are. The administrator, Tom, makes custom tunes. I've heard he does a great job.

What else is coming next for mods?

Well, soon I need to get an alignment. I'll also have my new HU installed on Christmas, maybe sooner. I'm going to price a new fender, fender liner, and driver door, the driver side has slight collision damage and it doesn't close right. After this money will be saved up for the SVT header swap and maybe an Iceman intake.

I just went down to Rockwall, TX with my brother to pick up his '09 GTi. I got to drive it all the way back and gosh I'm having turbo envy. The immediate turbo hit when you gun it and that noise that comes shortly after is incredible. So... after these other things I'll be looking at rebuilding this engine or building one on a stand and swapping it in when it's done.

Yess i have the turbo bug. And i agree, i want to build a separate engine and swap when it's done. Then FSWerks stage 2 turbo.

But back to your car! I never really heard much about the Iceman intake. Supposedly it's good; but the stock SVT intake is arguably the best intake for our cars.

What kind of headunit did you get?

I mostly like the look of the Iceman. I'll get whatever I can get my hands on.

I'll be getting on of these: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_105KDX5...T.html?tp=5684
I chose to get a digital media receiver just because I'll only be using my phone and iPod as audio sources, my cds always get ruined when I have them in my car.

Looks like a nice unit. I would like to get one with bluetooth compatibility.

Originally I was going to hold off and do a double din or a carputer, but then I remembered how much I would rather do other mods with that money!

On a side note, I'm thinking about going to FocusFest 2013. It's not too far of a drive and it would be pretty awesome to see all this stuff in person.

Of course you have to go, you're extremely close! Looks like it'll be a good turnout this year.

This!

You got some great plans! I want to start building an engine too, but I keep buying other stuff that prevents me from finishing the stuff I already started lol Do you have a pic of the iceman? I have heard a lot about it, but never seen one.

Here is the Iceman.


And I priced a new valve cover gasket and pcv valve from tousleyfordparts.com for $45. I've been having some oil burning at stops and when I turn the engine off.
