    GTI N/A Mods Thread

    Well why not start the GTI mods thread, we are just taking a fresh 09 130hp in to the Ski M.D. stable and after xmas usage of touring all the hot spots in little old New Zealand over summer it will come in for some carefull modification to set up an upgrade kit for those that dont have the bucks for a SC ski.


    Share your GTI stories, Mods and speeds on this thread and lets start talking normally aspirated language for a while.

    The end results will be a credit to the GH forum and combined brain storming from GTI owners and others who may have something to share.

    There have been a few who modified a GTI, but it doesn't seem to be cost effective. The best GPS I got was 56.1. That is just with plate holes filled and a resonator delete. I am interested to see what others have. I would like to see pics of an air intake. I know there is a a grate for it from Riva and R&D I think.

    If you search MountainGTI's threads, he has done a lot.

    Maybe try a torque plate off Jerry, I will be doing this also as I believe it will be good for a gain and the R and D air he has posted looks nice but I think I will remote that up out under the steering cover to get some fresh air.

    good point Kevin. I bet the torque plates would work well on the naturally aspirated skis.

    You guys should get ahold of JohnnyGTIse he has done some work on his 130hp 4tec.

    Riva thru hull, gutted and shortened waterbox, wedge, grate, air intake, prop, and free mods. I think his top speed was around 57 or 58.

    That is a lot to do for another one mph. But it is winter time so what the heck. I think I am done with the RXP for now. Maybe a thru hull. I am going to check out that intake when I get on a computer (phone now).

    Has anyone put a wedge and grate on and saw a difference? Speed or handling? Which grate?
