    Motion Motorsports underpanel w TT stg II install

    I got around to installing the underpanel i picked up from motion motorsports a few weeks ago.

    pretty easy install. On the TT stg II I had a few hangups w this underpanel but overall install was a success.

    packaging was good, parts were all there and looked/felt like high quality/strong parts

    and the panel, its a thick yet light cut of aluminum that is very rigid.....precision cut and drilled.

    some of the newest hardware to finds it way on the car

    new chargepiping w Tial BOV by MA motorsports here in Baltimore, bunch of good guys there

    TRM exhaust crank case check valve......has worked great so far!

    My helpers holding the underpanel in place after removing the factory craptastic plastic porkchop things.......this underpanel fit perfect w the OEM front bumper and lip.

    I was very happy to find that all my charge piping and the BOV cleared the panel and didnt require any triming.

    HOWEVER the charge piping kept me from installing the 2 large brackets which give this underpanel even more strength. After speaking with Matt at Motion I decided to go ahead and install it anyway, it turned out to be really rigid even without those supports.

    It ties into the fender liners and really helps solidify their positioning much better.

    I'm happy with the product.

    you can see from the photos that if anything this underpanel increases ground clearance by getting rid of the pork chop thingies.


    I am hoping this will help a bit with my cooling issues and plan on adding baffling and weather stripping to seal it up more forcing more air into the radiator.

    the drive home however didnt really reveal anything, other than 2nd gear is a hoot for drifting and the new CHRA is butter smooth :evil2

    yes I have been, certainly some help from others but 90% has been me. Learning as I go on almost all of it.

    in addition my clutch went out today....ugh!!!

    did a 75-110mph 5th gear pull....thought I was in 4th it pulled so hard. I guess the new CHRA is putting out more power and the clutch finally $#@! the bed.

    has around 30k miles on it. The old 5th gear test did it in.

    I'm on a deadline here so I'll be rushing to put a new clutch/pressure plate/flywheel in ASAP.

    I have this on my car http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/F1-ST...item51905436d0

    It held 8 straight dyno pulls 8,000 sc'd miles, and 16psi pulls with ease. Geno325is has had them hold 520whp, and 490wtq on his past setups. As well as other super secret turbo deathbase guys. 510 shipped your door. You cant go wrong honestly, and the flywheel is awesome Dcvee used that same flywheel in his project m3 afew years back. Its billet 16lbs, so its not crazy light.

    Car is looking great man. Glad you've got the last gremlins figured out (sorry about the clutch but a least it's a wear and tear item). I would also say the guys at MA Motorsports are great to work with. Just don't leave your car outside there overnight. It's not in the best of neighborhoods lol.
