I've had a 99 jettaIII 2.slo wolfsburg for about 3 months now. I just recently took out my factory air box and put in a Nuespeed P-flow. I've changed my oil and switched over to full synthetic. I was wondering what other little things i could do to help inprove my hp. Besides getting a chip or exhaust.. cause i plan on getting that.. I need some suggestions on what else i can do to help me burn more rice. also its fairly easy for me to govern out at 125 mph i was wondering if anyone knew how to override the govenor without a chip. Thanx

I just want some advice or help on how to increase horsepower. what are some do's and don'ts. ya know, ppl that have had vdubs for a while now and know alot about them.. I don't need ppl telling me my car is slow. i know this much. I just recently found this site also. so if someone can help me i'd appreciate it..

actually noone has said your car is slow...yet and from the sound of your comment you have been on a board at one time or another they are just simply critisizing the way you stated your first post.

chip, exhaust, could go cams, or turbo/supercharger when you really want to go nuts. there's a lot of things you can do

1. exhaust
2. chip programed for a 260 or 268 cam
3. cam and adjustable cam sprocket and HD valve springs.
4. not satisfied so end up going turbo or supercharged.

Re: A LIL VDUB Question (VW Fool)

it's all in good fun...just don't take it personally....as for your choice in car...good call, i have a 99 WE as well.
my approach to mine was intake, exhaust, suspension...and i'm gonna finish off the suspension before doing anything else...want to get some sway bars and stress bars and really tighten it up....it's 2.0, and i'm not about to act like it's fast, instead i want to handle like a champ.
although i do see myself picking up a chip soon just b/c they're pretty affordable

Re: A LIL VDUB Question (aglio)

Welcome to the tex

If you want more power, swap in a VR6! hehehe
Seriously though, get a chip. Probably going to give you the most bang for your buck.
Or, you could follow aglio's advice and go for suspension mods first to get rid of the 4x4 look.
