The Darkside Intake hose had one flaw

Did not come with a turbo inlet coupling.

So got one made.

Now this intake won't pop off. Or slide off. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant 👍

Top read.
Can you give a bit more info on any mods required to fit a LIFE slider to a std. Van. I'm sure there will be others interested too...

Cheers

Door needs to be trimmed 10 to 13mm by the window area.

That's it.
Rest is bolt on

Looks fantastic- does the column trim piece not fit into the new cluster housing?

I'll be watching this - Years ago I looked into retrofitting into my mk5 golf- at the time I found so much of the retrofit was still unknown and decided against it.

The trim is for a Tiguan mk1.
So will work in making it fit more oem

The wobble blocks helped with that.

Yes, comfort is essentially linked to the springs and shock absorbers.
But mounting more rigid brushes could bring additional vibrations. My question was related to these vibrations. Find out if they were more important.
regarding handling, the polybruschs must necessarily improve things because it is the excessive flexibility of the original parts that gives these completely disordered movements of the rear wheels.
I am looking at this subject how to reduce these movements by having a part machined that would block the rear spring supports on the rear cross member of the body, but I am worried about the vibrations that this would cause because we end up with a system without silentblock .
