Re: Dual ICs (TurboBeetle1)

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!
