Re: Today is the first day of the rest of my life (dubbr)

1/2" line? shiz is gonna jump. u better get flow controls.
a single 380 compressor for a 5 gallon tank? is gonna take forver to fill up.
and u still need 3" piping to make rear cups.
and why a 8 port tank, ur gonna have that one ugly port on the top of the tank.
Paul should be able to make it work! his mk5 is a good guide!! and they did vinnys also.

I just went with what kevin suggested, although i think we ended up deciding to go with a smaller line, 3/8's or something like that

dont take this the wrong way, and your in great hands doing this with Paul, but i think u should get familiar with what terms mean what, and how the system works, cause it looks like you just ordered a bunch of stuff without knowing what its actual function is, and if you ever have problems, and if Paul isnt around to help u'll be screwed. so between now and when time comes to install if i was you i would go through some build-ups, and read up on the FAQ/DIYs.

didn't the guy making it happen but his car that way

wow. that makes me want to smack you and your ignorance. paul, my brother/ owner of the car pictured above, built a pvw featured mk3 vrt and has redone pretty much the entire air ride setup on the mk5. i also will be doing the setup. and i must say. we are not incompetant idiots.
your car will be simply gangsta after a weekend in NY

Re: (Shawn W.)

I also want to state that PVW features do not mean doo doo. I have seen plenty of them. Nothing against your brother. His old car is nice and so is his new one. It just doesn't automaticly mean you know what the F you are doing. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

i agree with you about the PVW feature doesnt mean you're the most knowledgable dude, but i completely built the mk3 from stock with my own hands in my own garage and i did everything... bodywork, interior, motor, fab, maintance.... everything. i know mk3s inside and out.
as far as the mk5 goes i have pulled it apart several times, rewired a lot of ****, made several changes, new manifolds, tank, lines, even modifies my mason techs which i still need to take pics of for some people that were interested.
i also already did some body work on the mk5 and repainted about a 1/3 of it. i just dont post everything i do because, well , i just dont care. i know what i do and i do it really good.
sorry for the rant but i have alot of people coming to me for bodywork, air ride and other **** and i dont want them to read through one post, see that and just stop there and go this "dudes doesnt know **** im going somewhere else."
