Please note the two different mounting plates from the MKI TiG vs MKV GTi

Boost it!




Had to make a custom tap (will get pics of that later) and we tapped power from the headunit

Really excellent. I have the MOD BUG...which is really bad.

What did you use for speakers?
Yea.. the mod bug got me good.. I will take it as is to Eurowerks in June just see if any other Tiguan are there.

Speakers are stock.. I really was happy after the sound deadening...

roundtuit was able to use a downpipe from 42dd i think it may of been for the mkv gti though. I've also been waiting for a downpipe but since my tiguan is 4motion I cant use the mkv gti downpipe. How is the ride quality with the b&g springs?? I've been looking into buying them

I hate the wheels, stereo, steering wheel, and lack of roof rails on the Tiguan S. However, I love the six speed that's available. You took what's otherwise a ho-hum vehicle and turned it around. Nice job! :cool:

I'm Thinking of putting the boost gage in the same spot do you have any DIY instructions thanks... how does the 5X7 subwoofer sound? was the sound deadening what is the difference?

are you going to put an APR chip upgrade?

Thanks all...

The BG was pretty simple, I wish I would have taken more pictures of it but my hands where a little busy :p

I used the New South gauge so its 100% colored matched! But the depth of the gauge meant we had to cut out the back of the vent.. Just eyeballed it and used a clipper to trim out the hole, and then used a sander to smooth out the cuts

My plan was to have the BG in the bottom vent on the right, but the angle of that vent meant my gauge was too deep and would have not fit due to running (maybe) into the Headunit. I went with "better safe then sorry" mind set and placed it on the left.

Power came from tapping into engision (spelling?) cable running to the Headunit (blue cable)

So the gauge lights up when I turn on the car, but I can live with that...

We mounted the gauge in the vent with double sided tape..

Hard part was the tap into the TSI vacuum hose. Lucky my buddy of mine just came up with the idea to copy this http://www.ecstuning.com/Volkswagen-Tiguan-FWD-2.0T/Interior/Gauges/ES1831761/

Worked out great. (If the idea of drilling into your vacuum hose scares you just buy the hose from ecs already tapped)


As for 5x7, it doesn't hit hard.. but I am more then happy with it.. its small and I can feel it in my butt :p
Sound Deadening was done about month before the sub install... I will forever sound deaden all my cars.. its super easy (just takes time) and I hear so little road noise now its great... You can hear it when I close my door.. A nice deep thud sound :cool:
