    Default my newset air build

    I will post up more pics as I start to get it worked out on the car but I figured a parts list and some pics would help some people out.

    When I build a system I try and think about the over all install and useability of the system. I want it function and I want it to look like it was almost meant to be on the car from the factory. So I try to find pieces that will allow me to inegrate the entire system into the car seemlessly vs. throwing everything into the car.

    So my parts list is as follows

    2 universal air strut over bags
    2 slam specialties re5's for the rear
    2 universal air leader hoses for front bags
    accuair vu4 manifold
    accuair speed switch controller
    3 gallon aluminum tank
    viair dual 380 compressors
    dakota digital odessy 2 gauge
    4 150 psi dakota digital sending units
    1 parker water trap
    50ft 3/8 air dot air line
    misc fittings

    in addition to the air ride parts Im using a new south sterering column replacement pod, unit is a direct replacement for the mk4 upper steering column cover, Im also going to be using the existing H&R ultralow coilovers that are on the car. I will be notching the front frame to allow for better axle clearance and in addition I will be raising the motor 1 inch for better clearance.

    Car is a 2000 VW GTI 12v VR6
    wheels and tires are 18x8 18x10 schmidt vn lines with 215/40 front and 225/40 rear falken fk452's

    front bags with leaderlines/ tank and compressors


    what the rear setup will look like installed


    gauge with pod


    switch speed controller, wiring harness and install diagram





    as you can see the nice thing about accuair is that everything is plug and play very little wiring that is needed to be done

    my plans, I want to build the compressor and tank into the spare tire well as well as the manifold so nothing is visable unless the floor is lifted. I will most likely be building a false floor and raising it up a few inches to allow for room for wiring and everything to pass without being visable but we shall see. In addition I need to integrate a jl 12 w6 and a jl 500/1 into the trunk as well. Im not sure how I want to mount those yet but I might do a fiberglass box for the sub. But this is still all up in the air just kinda throwing my ideas down.

    that would be because it is your system just with the extra bells and whistles

    Hey what ever happened to this build I would really want to see how you did the front struts. I want to bag my 4.2 c5 a6 but want to do it with my h&r coilovers.
