I literally just bought a 2011 MKVI GTI. I want to put a BOV or something...other than poof that it has. Also a boost gauge and possibly a W.O.T box if anybody has any ideas please let me know. PM me or post back

Thank you

I will never understand a WOTbox on a fwd car.

Now, flat foot shifting is another story. But a wot box? Other than sounding awesome, it's completely useless.

If it's a DSG car don't you already pretty much have a WOT box?? Launch Control? Put the car in sport mode, turn off the TCS and hold your foot on the brake and the gas. No popping sounds, but it should build boost.

and it holds boost the way flat foot shifting is meant to do...stupid automatics get all the fun stuff:laugh:

I will have to try all of the above. I also thought about doing the APR ECU upgrade with 4 programs. Heard its impossible for vag to find the tunes and wont void warranty....what u guys think?
