Wanted to introduce myself to the board. My name is Don Im in San Antonio TX.
I know at least one member here already (Walt AKA "Bird") possibly some others that Im not aware of their screen names on this site.
That said I am a former G1 owner sold recently after 11 yrs and picked up this 03 DSG G2 in June. I drove from TX to NH to get it and drove it back to San Antonio. 2k mile trip in 2 days and it was flawless. Bought it with 36296 mi. Spent all winters inside from Oct to Apr. Now that it is in a warm rust free climate it is my DD truck and I LOVE it have just a tick under 43K now.

I am just getting to know the ins and outs of these trucks so I hope to garner some good info from the experienced guys here.

Truck has following mods and is pretty much "where I want it" as far as that since I drive it daily. I just want it fun and safe as far as tune/power.
BBK L/T Headers
Full Magnaflow Cat back with X pipe
High Flow cats
Throttle Body
K&N Filter
#2 Lower pulley
Chip with tune.

Next Month installing a catch can and 100mm idler pullies as well as pull the blower and clean the intercooler

I am a FORD guy all the way my current other car is a 04 MACH1 owned since new has 62K on it.

These pics were taken in VT at the lake cabin we stayed in the day after I picked it up in NH. It now has tinted windows here in TX.

You got a nice one there, Don. Do yourself a favor though and get some Gorilla tape and tape that chip in real good to the PCM. You'll know what I mean when you look at it. Don't want it coming loose on you.

Say hi to the wife for me.

When I take to MaxV I am going to have Tracy pull it and tune it with an SCT I think.
I am loving it Walt.
Night n Day between G1 and this one.

Welcome!
Looks like you have the mods I want for a DD, minus ported plenum/blower/midplate/intake.
