  1. Just wondering is the 997TT OEM exhaust less restrictive then the older 996TT? I know 996 version has 4 300 cell cats in it. If it is less than can the 997 exhaust somehow be retrofitted to the 996 car? After see ing cost of aftermarket exhausts was looking for more economical way to get a a free flowing exhaust. No one will modify my current exhaust for fear of being in trouble with fedsThanks
  2. So are you saying it IS possible to just change the actuator and get more boost?
  3. Thanks! Have been wondering what mods really are worth it! I am installing the Bailey DV30 diverters and Porsche X73 suspension soon on My X50. Been checking out the airbox, tuning, exhaust,header stuff too but wanted to be sure Jim
  4. Hey ARI where'd ya get the Remus exhaust at? Have you done any emissions tests with it? I live in Denver area and they are pretty stringent. I don't think 100 cell cats would cut it. Have you looked into EVO K24 headers for the X50? Jim
  5. Anyone have a good opinion on headers for the K24 setup? Read articles about tube length and collector styles. Did not know if they are worth their price for any performance gain? Specifically looked at EVO K24 headers Jim
  6. Agreed get the records!! If someone at a dealer futzed with it you can say they did it and get them to fix it for you.
  7. I see your points. I am not worried about dragging it, it was already dinged when I got it. I am very careful with it. I probably will just put stock one back on, found for under $300. You can buy a few of these for price of one of those aero ones. Thanks
  8. Okay any of you aerodynamics experts. I have a scarred up stock lip spoiler on my TT and was going to replace it. Thought about just getting the factory Aero lip from Carnewal but was not sure if it would significantly upset the car's balance if I kept the stock rear spoiler setup. I am also going to be changing the suspension when I add on lip to the X73 which will lower it about 30mm from US spec height. Thanks Jim
  9. How did your ordeal turn out? I was interested because that was one of the mods I considered but was kind of leary esp at $800! I wonder if it is because of the Giac chip? Have you tried it with stock ECU settings? I personally just kept stock airbox with a BMC filter and stock ECU. Car is very reliable and smooth running that way! I put my Money in suspension and lighter wheels.
  10. Does anyone know if the motor mounts that come with the X73 have to be installed with motor out? Extra labor might affect if I get the PSS9 or X73? Going to keep the sways they are larger. Jim
  11. Does anyone off hand know the weight for the 11 and 8 inch oem Type II holllow cast wheels that came on my 2002 TT? Thinking of going to forged wheels if they are significantly lighter. JIm
  12. Thanks I went out and put calipers on present bars and keep getting 23mm on rear and 24.5 on front (the piece that sticks into the wheel well that you can reach measured on the round part) I wonder since this is an X50 if it does not already have the X75 sways stock? Hope so will save me $$ When I put on the X73 kit Jim
  13. I was discussing with the head mechanic at my Shop in Denver today and we discussed sway bar upgrades for my 02 TT X50. He was thinking of using Sways for a GT2. Does anyone know if they are larger in diameter than the stock TT? I measured sways currently on car at 24mm in front and 23mm in rear. I am going to be installing the factory X73 kit along with sways, will that make any difference? Thanks Jim
  14. Anyone know how to get matching silver paint for turbo Type II wheels for my 02 TT? They have a couple small scrapes right at the tire line I want to touch up. Had some old artic silver touch up from autovisuals but it was a little too dark Jim
