ECS Tuning sells the kit for $895. It fits Golf/Jetta/GTI MkIV cars but does NOT fit the New Beetle to my knowledge. The unit takes the stock IC system from 70% effectiveness to about 90% efficiency.
As for what Axe said, unless you add a big turbo, just a good SMIC replacement might be sufficient, true. However, I ran a stock turbo on my SMIC for quite some time, and now have only a slightly larger turbo. I'd say the dual-IC is good for anyone, but financially more worthwhile after other mods have come and gone!
Damir, get the Forge SMIC.
Turbo, unless you're already done suspension, do that. Maybe get an LSD and a good clutch. Otherwise, you're in the same spot I am... nothing left to do really. You could get the ECS Pullies, maybe consider race seats/harnesses. But from a power standpoint, you're at a stopping point... ugh!
my suspension is done nothing left to do there, and the trans is still up in the air, i dont know if i want to go all out and get a six speed, peloquin, and clutch and flywheel, or just do the clutch and flywheel, i cant see getting use out of a 4000 dollar trans, ill buy a mk2 for that, we'll see i almost ordered the pulleys today from ecs but not sure about pulleys and lightwheight flywheel, im looking at brakes too whats good, willwood, brembo, ecs porsche what else, i really want more power
