    So it's warm again so time to put the Jeep away and pull the car back out. I registered for an autocross event next weekend and I wasn't sure if there is anything else I can do to my car fairly cheap and fast by then. These are my current mods. Thanks guys. By the way I'm a 2g tsi awd

    You'll find out its not about having power, its about having spool. If you don't have intercooler piping or a fmic I'd suggest doing that, a 14b turbo if your still on the stock t25 and a MBC. Should add a little power to the butt dyno.

    Yeah Autox is not so much about raw power as staying in your power band and knowing how to brake and shift effectively. It's a lot more about the driver than the car. Make sure your have good wide tires.

    The car hasn't been out on the road for a long time so I will be getting the camber and all that readujusted. What should it set it at? Any suggestions?

    Driver mod.

    Seat time will help lower your times more than any bolt on mod ever will. You'll be amazed at what cars are ripping of the quickest times compared to others.

    Driver Mod x2.

    Instead of MSD wires, go with the NGK wires, cheap and real good. Also SS brake lines are a good one time upgrade. They run about $100 and new brake fluid will really help. The fluidyne radiator is nice but for the money, the Mishimoto with new hoses is a good deal, too.

    You'll aslo want to consider changing your tranny, transfer case and rear-end fluid.
