GolNat's 2013 GTI 6MT Coupe Stage 2 Bound

Hello, have been a member for a while and to help keep the forum alive decided to start a build thread. I bought my GTI back in November 2018 after my Fit was totaled by a drunk driver running a red light. I have always owned Honda's and have been scared to own a German car from a reliability fear. Most of these fears are based off stories and not from actual ownership so I figured I would try it out for myself. So far she has been doing great but only time will tell. It is a lot more of a pain in the ass to work on and you need so many more tools but regular maintenance has been pretty straight forward.


Current Mods:
Unitronic Stage 1+ Tune (best money on a mod I have ever spent)
GFB DV+
Boost gauge w/ air vent mount
17" OZ Racing Wheels

Waiting to be installed:
HPA Short Shifter
Neuspeed Dog Bone insert
CTS 3" Down pipe

Future Mods:
Resonator Delete
Tint
Short Shifter and knob
Coilovers
Wheel spacer kit
Engine mount kit
Poly Bushings
Upgraded BOV (stock one is plastic)
Intake
Down Pipe
Stage 2
Possible brake upgrades like SS lines and Porsche calipers

Current mileage is a tad over 41,000 and bought it with 35,000 from Carmax in Newark, DE. On with the pictures.

First my Fit which was a great car just slow:



Damn drunk drivers:





The GTI:





It's the base model so no bells and whistles but it's a low mileage 6 speed which was the most important thing. Oh and plaid seats, it had to have that!

As it sits now:



No plans on slamming or stancing this car. It's a performance car so that is first and foremost.

I have this waiting to go on and then I can flash to stage 2 but am scared because of the stock clutch and I have not had the time.



I'll have to get some updated pictures as last week I did some paint correction on it to help get rid of some of the swirl marks. First black car and its a PITA to keep looking good.

That's all for now, thanks.

I always liked that seats in the MK6, but only leather to get the sunroof in the earlier versions of the MK7. Nice choice.
