    I think from what i read, it had to do something with a bigger turbo and beating the crap out of it while his buddie was filming..I dont know,,....

    That was some guy name Stu' From Rochester. I dont know the guy but some of the guys here in Buffalo knew him.....They say he had a lot of money into the car....

    I'd cry if that happened to me...Im getting an extinguisher tomorrow..lol :huh:

    haha just don't be like that dumbass and wait until it spreads into the cabin before you start spraying it. He easily could have put that out had he started spraying it when it was just behind the intake Manifold.... instead he stood there filming it.

    Or a drop of oil from the feed/return touching the manifold when its under 1600+ degree temps.

    That looks to me like either something rubbed the firewall, and caused it, or maybe some sort of wiring short?

    actually, it was probably an oil fire, cause that's defenitly not a fuel fire, it would have spread much quicker, an electrical fire he could have put out pretty easily. I'm pretty sure the turbo is under the intake manifold in the newer GTi's.

    -Upgrades turbo
    -Does a shitty job on the oil lines
    -Oil drips all over DP, dribbles down
    -Catches fire
    -Bye Bye GTi

    It is (and a complete BITCH to get too)


    If it was me and I saw that I didn't really have a chance at stopping it, I would start ripping off as many parts as possible. Seats, steering wheel, ect.

    WOW! What a moron, he could have so saved that shit from complete and utter disaster. My buddy has the same ride and is thinking of upgrading the turbo as well, I will defnitely tell him to watch this shit and do it right.
