With snow on the ground and narrow snow tires, the extra power is just going to net more flashing of the traction light. So I am going to wait a couple of days till it's in the mid 40's.
Haha, I have been excited to order some parts and anxiously await their arrival only to have them sit under my desk at work for weeks and weeks, I know the feeling.

Install took a little longer than I expected. The first plug, under the engine cover, was a pain to get to, but after that the rest of the install was simple.
Nice!! It's an awesome bang-for-buck mod


Now the wait begins for stage 2! Had some fun the other night with a friend's stage 1 GTI. Pulled on him, but not as much as I'd like. Stage 2 GTI would probably be even, possibly pull on me a bit.
