Nice TDI, what's your 1/4 mile time?
Thanks! 14.90 @ 95.3 mph is my best so far (18s stock...) w/ 2.1 60' on bald a$$ tires. Hope to get that down with new tires.

I like what I see..:thumbup:
Thanks!

Nice TDI bro :thumbup: for a fellow Florida driver! Your car made a shiz ton of tq!

Hows tallynasty, You attend fsu/tcc? Also iv been thinking bout doing that break light mod and had some questions about it.

Thanks! I am finishing my Ph.D. in Chemistry @ FSU, might do an MBA afterwards. The 5th brake light is super simple.

Very nice TDI :thumbup:
Thanks!

Nice TDI man. That is a whole lot of torque you got there and some nice horsepower too. 186WHP, that would put you around 200bhp? anyways nice ride and that ALOT of black smoke there:D

Thanks! It is a lot of fun! :beer:

Wow, how do you pass emission? :laugh: I want a TDI so bad, so much torque on so little fuel!
Luckily no emissions in FL! Its only bad like that under full throttle. The larger turbo I plan on getting will take care of that smoke...:D
