Taking it to the next level in the engine cooling department with a DTM fan shroud which balances out cylinder temps, plus it incorperates a type 4 oil cooler that is 40% larger than the type 1 cooler.

The current heads (Scat Super D-Port) have duel springs that have over 350 lbs. of pressure at 1" of compression. I opted for a new set from CB performance which are duel valve springs (VW650). The outer spring is all that is needed with 240 lbs. of pressure @ 1" compression. This alone will free up HP making a more snappier throttle response = MORE HP.

Weighing in at half the weight of the current chromoly retainers, it will also free up more HP.

Since this was the only area on the entire car where there was bondo, it seemed right to replace it with a new one from Wolfsburg West. It was spot welded in - same as factory. - Over all great quality and fit.
