    N75 & FPR

    OK, I've been searching around a bit lately for info on the N75J and 4 bar fuel pressure regulator. What I've found has brought more questions to mind (and maybe even an idea [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img])

    Anyway, I've read that while the N75J (and H) changes the characteristics of the std wastegate (Mainly by holding/building more boost) it's been mentioned that this additional boost is not accounted for by the ECU and therefore, no additional fuel is supplied.

    I've also read that running a 4 bar FPR in leu of the std 3 bar part can lead to an engine running rich.

    SO, here's my question/idea. While running a std K03 ("Sport") on a remapped car, would the 4-bar FPR help to offset the potential problems of the N75J valve?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Just trying to make some sense. I can really feel the extra pull that the N75J gives (While I have some hesitation issues to solve [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]) but as I put about 600 miles on my car each week, I don't want to run anything that could make my engine "go BOOM!"

    Drill i did vagcom runs with a J and with a standard F,standard was much stronger and smoother,J just spikes high readings ,but is not so drivable. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]Andy

    Just put a J on my S3 in place of the N75c, wasn't too convinced at first. Took it out for a longer run, car seems smoother if anything, but with a bit more top end boost. Still not hit limp mode yet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
    Andy,
    If I hang on to the old N75, Do you fancy testing the two valves using Vagcom? Maybe AMD will do this Sat?
    See you on route,
    Chris.

    If i can keep up Chris [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile_smoking.gif[/img],Rich it takes 5 mins to swap,but original clips can be a t***t to remove and they can't be reused.I will bring the plots for valves with me on saturday and a spare j valve.Not long now boys and mines absolutely flying at the moment.Cheers Andy

    Me too. Does anyone have the AmD remap and the N75J?

    Does it go limp? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    Re: N75 & FPR

    If it does go into limp mode ill just remove it again, but i plan on doing a few runs and logging the boost via VAGCOM to see how the original and J valve compare.

    I really just want it to hold more boost, but if it gives me a big initial boost spike, which is what ive read itll be coming straight back off.

    Thanks

    Mark

    Right,

    By the DV, there is a golf coloured thing with a plug on it and 3 pipes... 2 small ones, and then it goes into the intake hose...This is the N75

    The FPR, is at the end of the fuel rail by the injectors and have a vacuum line on it
