    REVO CAI Ceramic Coated

    Hey folks just wanted to share this pic with you. Got this installed by my local REVO dealer a few nights ago. Very happy with it. Just need a TTS engine cover now!

    I do think the Revo looks the part and seems very well made.

    Unfortunately neither it nor the AMD will fit mine so I'm "stuck" with my custom ITG which is functional but not pretty.

    At the time I bought it,the ITG was the best by far but the look is strictly functional where the Revo not only works well but also looks good.

    Mines custom in that there was a fair bit of work required to get the whole thing to actually fit the turbo system.

    Big cone..... Like that!

    Your car in general is an absolute beast! Been following your thread closely. I have no intentions if going as far as you. Im gonna take it to stage 2 + and will be happy enough with that! Will start to concentrate on other bits then like upgrading the handling etc..

    Thanks very much.

    It's people here and on VAGOC that are to blame for that.
    I wasn't going to do anything to it before coming here and Stg2+ was going to be the limit after that etc so be warned!

    The handling is well worth sorting and adds more pace to the car by not wobbling around so much.

    Keep going and enjoy it.
