The perfect time to build your ride

The perfect time to build your ride

Dec 16th 2022

For us enthusiasts in the north, now is the perfect time to get your part list, and build out your car with all the goodies you want. If you have a winter beater, it’s that time of year where your prized euro becomes a garage princess and goes into a safe spot away from the salt and snow, meaning it’s the perfect time to score all your parts and get to building.

So where to start? While you may have some goals set for your power output, or desired sound or ride height, most of the time it is not a clear cut path. Our team members are available to help you with this part, and build out the steps needed to reach your goals. If you aren’t ready to go all out right now, then you still need to start somewhere. 

To start your build, one of the best places to start is at home tuning. Lets say your goal is stage 2 for your ride, this means a laundry list of parts from the intake, intercooler, downpipe, and more. Well you don’t have to wait to have all of those parts installed to start enjoying the power gains. Unitronic, 034Motorsport, and Integrated Engineering are the 3 main players when it comes to at-home tuning, and they all offer progressive tuning. Starting with a stage 1 tune means that you won’t pay full price when it comes time to go stage 2, just pay the difference to reach your end goal. Once you have your full bolt-ons then you’re ready to go.

Check out the flashing cables for Unitronic, 034Motorsport, and Integrated Engineering here. Pick your poison, because each has a catalog of performance parts designed specifically to work with their softwares. While it is not necessary to go entirely with a single brand, it can absolutely help the cohesion and communication your car has between its upgraded performance parts.

And again, as always, our team is here to assist you with the process and offer our suggestions on where to start and what the right steps are to keep it budget friendly and at your pace. Shoot an email to and get ready for a lot of garage time through the winter.
