Why didnt you do a full standalone ecu?

Also, I have a custom intake that fits a clocked td04, specifically made for the 1.8l engine, its actually pretty trick, im going to get some better pics this weekend, but i just wanted to get your thoughts on FMU and also, did you end up keeping the stock L tranny?

check rs25 for my reply.

the boost creep is probably the wastegate not letting enough gases through, that's whay i went with the tial 38mm ewg route. but i'm still creeping with the 38mm, should've went with the 44mm. i'm still on the stock L fwd tranny with a a 11lb flywheel and clutchmasters stage 3. shifting is tight, feels perfect. also fwd axles are thicker than awd axles, however i tore my outer cv boost on both sides when trying to do a burnout. left a huge mess, haha.

like i said, my wife would've killed me if she found out that a standalone costed north of $1000.

post some pics up, cant wait to see it.
