    02M Build

    Thought I'd bump this thread rather than make a new one. The bearings are gone in my car, makes a horrible rattle as I drive so I'm taking the box out to rebuild it. I'll be using all new bearings and shift forks for gears 1-4. My engine builder said I should install new syncros while it's out...

    I did have an air lock as I have bypassed the head exchanger, but I thought I had fixed it... Maybe not. Was unsure the potential cause for such a problem. But if air locks could cause what I described I will search a little harder. I do hear a few air bubbles when the run after pump is going...

    Aussie big turbo Audi S3

    So the car is back at the tuners for MORE BOOST!! Hoping to get near 500hp :D Also needs some gear compensation as I'm only hitting 23psi in second. In other news, the coolant expansion tank likes to sit very low. Coolant will overflow after I turn the car off if I top it up anymore. When I...

    Possible Head Swap

    Cheers :D Just shows the potential of the small ports. Although if you're going to rev high you do want a large port

    Possible Head Swap

    I have around 460whp with a small port haha. Torque does start dropping at higher rpms but hp remains the same. Getting more boost to see how close to 500 I can get Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    TT700 build, running in on dyno.... getting there :)

    FYI - I am going to be putting some more boost through my car to see how much power I can make and I would imagine I'll be right on the limit of the fuel lines as I'm running e85. Given it's currently 460hp at the hubs, and e85 requires about 30% extra fuel, the stock lines seem to be doing well...

    Have you considered a retune after the 600bhp Bill managed to get on a build similar to yours? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks badger, shame you don't get it from the bowser over there! ah good point, I thought bhp was from the flywheel though? Either way it is enough ;)

    Aussie big turbo Audi S3

    Well just got the car back.. it went a lot better than we all expected. On 98 the only runs 1.3 bar (I didn't want much on 98 due to the high compression) and makes 330whp. Am yet to experience this because the car currently has e85 in it, and that is where the magic happens. 460 WHP!!! This...

    Very sad day

    Well I'm running a stroker and gtx30 and although I'm not running high boost yet, it drives very well off boost. Plenty more torque at low revs than my 320i No low pressure warning on dash? Or did it all happen in an instant? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ebay catch can to ÜBER catch can! . . The pikey way

    Yes but then you would need a t-piece with the cam and crank breathers both going to go in the catch can to one 19mm breather and out the can with another 19mm breather + the 8mm breather. it would be better if they can both enter the catch can separately

    was it high crankcase pressure that caused the oil explosion? what PCV setup were you running? If you were happy with the drivability off boost I wouldn't worry about the stroker, but I am currently running a stroker and it drives a dream off boost

    Sure is love going past 7k haha. Although with the power it happens so quick in second it's hard to time. Can't imagine what it's going to be like with more power. Like a game where you need to press the button exactly on "7500" Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not on stock ecu, was getting a misfire at 6400 because the crank and cam sensors were going crazy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Aussie big turbo Audi S3

    So another update, replaced the crank sensor and the car still wouldn't rev over 6400.. turned out to be the firmware on the ecu needing updating. The car now revs to 7500! It insane 5500-7500! Tune still needs a little cleaning up on light throttle but on boost the car drives amazing. I had...

    Catch can question

    If you're venting to atmosphere, buy the cheapest catch can you find that has the correct sized inlets. If you're venting to the TIP ideally you want baffled catch can, so they will cost more. For what it's worth, I vent to atmos.
