    You've got there pretty nice dub ; ))))
    magnaflow exhaust - i was planning to buy it as a group buy on vwvortex; is it louder than a stock one, whats your opinion about it (do you have 2.0 or vr6)
    DSR 256 cams- nice ;d, but i rather stay with fuel economy for now

    Haha, yeah the cams do like the fuel but they work along side my stage II supercharger setup. I put down about 250hp to the wheels. I am actually very happy with my magnaflow. It has a nice low rumble at idle and sometimes cancels its own sound out at certain rpms. And for $350 it couldn't be a better deal. Btw, mine is a 99 VR6.

    yeah cams are supposed to eat up more fuel but then again so does the sc.. nice though. And the magnaflow is definately lowest amount the exhausts. I've thought about a TT stainless steel for my dub. I'm also on vwvortex frequently with the same username. Hit me up.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    Samc you have pretty long history on 'tex, i read couple of your threads over there, interesting.
    Since you guys know much better about the exhausts which should i get: one from tttuning or magnaflow, or something else? Mine is falling apart (including cat) and im looking for something quiet to do not wake up neighbors at night .

    Awsome to see a few mk3 guys hear. I have all the parts for my system all together, and I am just working out the software. I'm not using an LCD scree, so I don't plan on using video. I'm keeping the stock head unit, and using the VWCDPIC to emulate the cd changer. Control is through a palm with http://www.giantdisc.com/

    I have an m100, it's black with green screen. So, the color scheme on everything still matches OEM.

    As far as the exhaust goes, I think you could find more info on vortex, but if you wait around every couple of months there is a group buy on the magnaflows for like $360 ($600 without the group). A lot of people like the magnaflows the best. But, if you look at the dyno charts, you get like 10hp, all after 5000rpm, that wasn't worth $360 to me, since I rarely go above 4000rpm.

    Let's keep the Mk3 Picture's comming. More power to anyone who tries.

    for a 6 banger the magnaflow and TT will be very LOUD. A good loud but still no where near quiet. I have a few guys running the milltek, remus, GHL on their vr6s. Milltek is very very quiet. Remus is maybe a slight bit louder. GHL is somewhat loud also.


    I would personally recomend the Techtronics exhaust. 2.5" stainless steel, it'll be music to your ears. And yes Ive been on vwvortex.com for a while

    Yeah I guess I'm just used to how it sounds. I like it though and I can't complain.

    Now if I could only get my project started...

    Is this setup going to include a touchscreen?

    How much did it cost you to get your dash customized? Or did you do it yourself? I want to do something like that but i am a complete newbie. Could you drop a tutorial on how you did yours if you dont mind. I have a 98 vw golf gl.
