    Just finished installing APR stage II (intake,stage II intake back pipe, turbo back exhaust and ECU upgrade stage II) parts and ECU upgrade. WOW!!! Completely different car. Looks like brake upgrades will be coming sooner than anticipated.

    I love my K&N on my 2.0T, but it is a little loud at times mainly turbo noise. So you probably would be ok.

    Can anyone advise on loudness of the Carbonio intake for the 2.5 NA engine. I need an intake but i've been getting different response between the weapon and the Carbonio, but i want something that's subtle, nothing too loud.

    Hi Everyone,

    Here's some MODs and Brands that I know carry them

    <50 - Urethane Torque Arm Bushing (Whiteline, Neuspeed)
    - Urethane Rack and Pinion Mount Bushing (Whiteline)

    >50 - Urethane Rear Trailing Arm Bushing (Whiteline)

    >100 - Urethane Front Control Arm Bushing (Whiteline, Energy Suspension)
    - Sway bar links (Whiteline, Neuspeed)
    - HID conversion kits (Litech)

    >250 - Springs (Eibach, Neuspeed, H&R)
    Anti lift control arm mount (Whiteline)
    Cold Air Intake (KN, Neuspeed, AFe [no check engine light with AFe])

    >500 - Struts (Koni, Bilstein)
    Sway Bars (Eibach, Neuspeed, Whiteline)

    These are just some I know off hand. I have a 09 GLi and plan on doing my suspension next year with wheel and tires (Enkei M52 rims and Continental DW tires) so that why I know a bunch of them from research. Also I'll be replacing most of the car's lights with LEDs and converting the Fogs to HID (I hate the fact they have HID headlights and not fogs)

    SRI will be your best bet since there's really no difference in air temp, second go with magnaflow for an exhaust that'll be a nice throaty exhaust

    I also have a 2006 2.5L and the Carbonio gives your car a GREAT deep and strong sound that I have yet to get a complaint about from anyone. I have actually had people stop me to tell me how nice my car sounds. That's a part of the appeal, beyond the carbon fiber look it gives the engine bay!

    Here is my list of mods as well.
    Engine:
    C2 Motorsports - ECU Flash Load Program, Stage 1 Software upgrade 299.00 (NGP Racing)
    Red Dogbone Mount Insert 35.00 (ESCtuning)
    USP 2.5" stainless steel Catback testpipe 275.00 (NGP racing)
    Carbonio CAI with K&N Super Cone 280.00 (NGP racing)

    Suspension:
    FK Street line coilovers 550.00 (ESCtuning)
    FK sway bar links included with coilovers (ESCtuning)

    Brakes:
    StopTech SportStop Drilled Rotors/Front and Rear 270.00 (Tirerack)
    Akebono Euro Ceramic Composite Brake Pads/Front & Rear 145.00 (ESCtuning)

    Wheels:
    Alzor Style 17 x 7.5" Style 349 Wheels with a 5x112 offset in Hyper Silver. 430.00 (ESCtuning)
    Nexus 225/45 550.00

    Exterior:
    European Blackout Headlights 250.00 (ESCtuning)

    TDI cars

    The APR tune for 2.0 TDI has been a bit problematic. They are pretty new to the diesel tuning game and their tune may not yet be "ready for prime time". Unitronic and Revo both offer pretty good ECU tunes, but they do not offer DSG tunes and they cannot do any sort of "custom" tune. If you want anything other than a standard stage 1 tune, you have to talk to either RocketChip (Jeff) or Malone (Mark) or one of their dealers. It's really that simple.
    I have Malone stage 2,and DSG tune.both them done for around $1000. I cannot be happier with the performance and shifting quality

    Just something to consider.
    Intake before DPF delete = DPF failure.
    The stock computer cannot properly adjusted the extra air put in the car will not go into clean out mode and the DPF will fail.

    For DSG owners. Factory DSG software has a 258 foot-pound torque limiter. Which is well below what most ECU tunes add. To take advantage of this extra torque you're getting you will need to do a DSG tune. otherwise it will result in poor shift quality and torque limitation.
