Dammit, I'll never make friends at this rate. I misheard him :-$.

Anyway, These guys are the bee's knees's. Honestly, when I went stage 1 with the cobb ots, I didn't notice a huge difference. Just a little more response and a little bit of aggro, but I felt just a pinch jipped. Well after Paul hacked my AP I can feel a HUGE difference, especially in 4th gear. I was all like . It just goes faster, and I'm finally hitting target boost. Almost cosmically, I pulled out of element on to 6th and right on time a MS3 and a GTI flanked me. I got plenty of dry road and open traffic to test out the new map and it was just night and day. I still want moar fast but I'm pretty sure this is about as far as I can safely go stock. I thank the guys at Element for treating my baby right. Your the man Paul.

I did a little fine tuning myself

The car sees 3-4 more inches of vacuum w/ the throttle plate cracked a hair compared to before the header wrap. I'd say the retained heat is helping quite a bit...SO:

I got a little more aggressive with cam timing up top and bumped ign timing ~1-2* from 6400-8000rpm.

Also I felt it was a little zealous down low so I lowered by ~.5* at ~5200rpm.

I did 4-5 pulls and holy cow did it make a difference

Pulls were at wastegate boost of 17psi and feels like a legit 400whp. I might report back with airboy dyno #s

Ugh, what a mess. Is anything left IN the car? If that were me, and I was putting it back together, I would have so many left over fasteners. Kudos to you for that kind of teardown.

Remains of the hood latch/support bars, and some of the bumper beam in the bottom right. Reversed intake manifold, H6, custom FMIC, gigantic turbo mounted where your grille used to be, or what?
