Cheers guys. I'll paint the filter black and pop on the battery cover. It's as much as I can do tbh.
I'm inclined to say the same thing, paint it black, it would look better!
What filter is it gops?
Not sure tbh, it's one supplied to BT cars by Bill. It's epic, sound really good!
Green Cotton Dynatwist
******** it is..
Lol! It may not look the best but tbh everyone that has looked "under the hood of my car" has wowed at it!
It sounds epic when it growls! But it needs to be black! With the battery cover on just because it looks incomplete without it. Btw Mr @badger5 im on my rounds tomorrow. Will pop through with some form of edible triangular pastry with minced lamb inside.
I'm rocking a K&N il have you know! Gets me mad respect down at maccy D's
Be early then fella... off to combe to setup tomorrow..
I'll message you before I leave!
So I'm dropping the car off to bill this weekend so he can finish off some tweeks here and there and hopefully map when he can squeeze it in.
Recently I've been thinking about the gearbox and its internals. Having a quick read through this site : http://www.vwsyncro.co.uk/data/forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2309
Gives some good info for a novice like me. I've no clue when it comes to gearboxes but something seems so mesmerising with them and since I have a spare lying around, I wanted to mess around with that! Now il thinking that will be the box I would like to get done to include some good internals and I'm not really the one to do that (let's be honest). Although I still want to disassemble one to learn more about one.
Anyways that site suggests different 5-6th final drives with higher top speeds. One being 320kmh at 7000rpm which suits a big turbo car better but I'm not sure what other implications this will have on the drive of the car. I think it's the tdi final drive.
Also suggests some updated selector forks and reinforced plates which I have no clue if they're actually needed.
I also found these for some who desire abit of late night reading
Does anyone know if this info will be any good?
There's some awesome info in there Gops, Really interesting
Wish I could say I understand it all
There is a thread in the FAQs already making a start to cover upgrading the 02M box so this info would be useful there too... I'll quote it in shortly..
The selector forks and plates are covered off in this thread too... there is also mainshaft support available but not sure its really suitable for a road car setup as it requires attention regularly...
02M boxes are strong but selector forks, diff bearings and on the odd occasion casings are the main weak points... if you plan to launch everywhere and you are a gearchange banger then there is a degree of justification to the reinforcement stuff...
I am looking to use the steel forks and maybe the end case plate when I come to build mine...
The final drives thing is something worth investigating too... popular with the R32 turbo boys...
I'm only here saturday gops fyi
Will definitely be dropping it off Saturday morning bill how did the race go on Monday dude?
I'll catch up with you on wassap mate... forgot you are sans facebook these days...
Gops, if this car of yours is going to be 5 - 600 horsepower, you are going to ****. YOUR. PANTS.
Just thought I'd warn you
Hahaha! I can't wait!! I need to video my first reaction to it! How's yours feeling?
It's epic, it's silly how fast it covers ground, I laugh and poo myself every time. Hence my warning to you, I can't even imagine how it will feel
I'll just leave this here..
Seriously I'm still grinning since that phone call @badger5!!
Can't wait to see what she's like! Got to wait a week!! Excited like hell!! Hats off to badger 5.. Into a very exclusive club now.. 600bhp club!
For those who are on Instagram and Twitter.. I tweeted this.. Even got lethal bizzle to favourite my tweet! Madness!
Absolutely, completely, and utterly bonkers Gops!
I think it made 251bhp the day I drove it in 2008 when Joe owned it. Even then it was a good car.
605bhp is just next level insane.
Some of the builds to come out of B5 this year have been mind blowing. Really pushing it to levels that a few years ago we'd all have argued were impossible.
I can't comprehend it! It's silly power that I can't get my head around! This was the limit of flow through the manifold as bill was explaining to me. Maybe a manifold with bigger runners might help peak power but tbh that's for another day, this is enough for me. Maybe one day if bill has a manifold design to go on I'll try it, im always up for these things. But if I'm honest I think this will scare the bejeeeebuzzz out of me! I wish I was there to witness it! For now I will have to just let bill tease me with how it drives whilst I'm on holiday
I'd imagine it to feel fairly brisk at this point.
What the hell has been going on here! I thought those dyno figures must have been a hoax. That's mental power. Well done.
It may just be as quick as my bonkers fiesta
Why hello there westicles! Long time dude! I got bored of hybrid power.. Had to go bonkers on it
Fair play gops I want a passenger ride
Id love to see this side by side 50mph rolling start with my hybrid for comparison
Or lack of comparison id imagine to be more accurate!!
Unreal mate congrats
Welcome to the 600+bhp club dude
Gops that is unreal congrats and well done Bill, I saw the car in bits when I was there in April
Guess I need to run my boost up now then LOL
yea tuffty.. you feeling left out now.. more boosts
Well done to yourself and Badger Bill.
Welcome to the 600+ club.
do you need to change your signature alex?
Great results, it's put a smile on my face from across the channel
What were you thinking of?...only printable suggestions please.
If it relates to the bhp,that's the daily setting....the final set of horses is in the 2.1 bar paddock!
Storm and Syvecs got somewhere into the low 600s at 2.1bar,without fiddling with the VVT or ignition timing,and then wound it back a bit for the sake of the gearbox,and also the exhaust aft of the downpipe needs a little bit of work at those flow rates.
Can I have my BLUE HALDEX Controller back please!
Only when you have enough power to warrant it!! LOL
Wouldn't it suit a 605bhp car more?
