The rules are this, better airflow throgh the engine equals better perf. run a low restriction filter assembly, K&N and others make them, run a free flowing exhaust, do your research, just because it sounds good that doesn't mean it gives any perf gain, u can also fool with the electronics, they may or may not offer a performance chip for your car, u will have to inquire, call Summit racing, they are one of the leaders in the country on perf parts, they sell the best.

VW Golf engine rattle


You are experiencing detonation. Main causes are:

  • Low octane fuel - Use higher octane rating fuel.
  • Incorrect ignition timing - Readjust timing
  • Too high compression ratio(due to engine mods such as skimmed head or high compression pistons) - replace modified parts
  • Air/fuel mix too lean - Replace fuel filter and readjust.

2003 GOLF GTI THE BEST TIRE SIZE FOR 17'' RIMS???


I would advise you to leave both sides with 235 45 17 this tire size would provide you with better handling and improved comfort also tires wil be more protected of suffering damage in the sidewalls caused by bumps and potholes just remember to keep them inflated at 38 +/- 2 psi.

I have a 96 mustang gt with low compression in the number 8 cylinder. 100 as opposed to 150. is there any way to remedy this?


You need to do a wet compression test also. Squirt some motor oil down cylinder number 8 when performing the test to see if it seals better with oil on the rings and if yes the rings are worn and if no there is a problem in the valves sealing or rare case the rod could be bent also use a battery charger when performing test and hold throttle wide open.

How do i fit a performence air filter on my mk2 golf gti?


you want to look for the original airbox (where the air filter is) first and find the clamp that connects the pipe to the box, loosen the clamp and remove the box and then see if the air filter fits, if not then take the pipe off so you can see the intake or carb entrance put the air filter on there and that should do it
