Nice. The hood doesn't even look that bad. White or black for it though.

i had a DTM CF boser hood on which made it look pretty cool but recently decided that i want to get an OEM+ look going...but yeah im gonna paint the hood candy white hopefully within the next week or so, i just hate the sanding part!!

When I saw the pics I thought you had some speacial CF thing going on with the hood haha.
Keep us updated on the progress!
Hows the intercooler and turbo so far?

i tried heatsoaking it the other day to see its limit...it was roughly 95+ degrees, A/C on full blast and boosting 25 PSI thru all the gears for about 10 minutes non-stop...the FMIC was still ice cold and no power loss http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

TT fender mod and an FMIC?

Hey, the first thing I thought is that the hood doesn't look that bad, and it would actually be kind of cool if you painted the roof the same color. Then again, I'm not known for my art critique.

Have you dyno'd?

Do you really need an intercooler for the TDI. I would think they dont produce enough boost to need one.

I'm sure he is boosting more then me with his big-ass-turbo.

But I'm holding 19psi on the stock turbo.
All this with 19.5:1 compression

Stock boost is like 13psi I think.
