History

I've been a bit of a serial modifier for a while and my last few VW's were a Golf MKV Edition 30 DSG that ended up with 438bhp and 510lbft on nitrous injection and then after that I calmed down and bought a 6R 1.4TSI Polo GTI DSG that ended up on a Loba hybrid turbo and 260bhp at just 1150kg.

Plans

Hopefully to drop my best official time of 12.3038@109mph in the next few weeks whilst still on the stock K04.

Then to progress to a different turbo. Still stuck on the choice as I ideally want good response AND more power.

Update......

Well the R has had a few issues lately, which I'm glad to say now have been resolved by Steve Jr and Craig at Statllers.

Not a massive update really, but today saw the E-Boost 2 controller go on. The R didn't like the manual boost controller too much. It made part throttle quite twitchy and coming off full boost was quite violent at times. It did the job fine for the strip, but for the road it was very much a temporary fix. So now the E-Boost controller is sat in prime place with an OSIR vent pod just to the right of the steering wheel and an excellent piece of kit it is too. Jake ( Danishmkvgti on the MK5 forum) had one of these fitted a while back and likes his a lot, so I thought I'd take the same plunge. Operationally it has quite a few options including progressively controlling the WMI and once set up is VERY smooth in operation, I'd even go as far to say that it feels smoother than using the N75 sensor OEM boost regulator.

Peak held boost is around the 28psi level and drops back towards the redline.

All set now for the final phase and a Loba L0400 turbo upgrade. Fast spooling ( faster than the OEM K04 ) and with over 400bhp capability the R should finally be where I want it to be.

Went to the strip yesterday. 88degrees in the shade didn't help anyone out, but still managed a 12.52@112mph. I think the higher time for me was mainly due to the track prep as my 60' times were around 0.2 seconds slower.

Nice car, many many performance mods and you have achieved great results at the strip.

Many change the wheels, i think the stock R wheels are the nicest stock wheel made and would never change them. with all your performance mods i am sure that was a consideration.

the rear vw mod looks good, lets see the engine bay.

also what would you estimate your investment in mods?

back in the day (60's), i never saw any of my friends break 12.5, these were 8 cylinder muscle cars, generally two 4 barrel carbs or fuel injection, crane cam, 4:56 gears, Hurst gear box, headers, tires etc. Generally pretty large investment also.

One of the nicest looking Rs out there :clap: I love that color especially with the dark headlights... too bad it wasn't available when I ordered my car.

Do you mind sharing some feedback on the RS4 return valve and the RS3 in-tank pump? Pros and cons (if any?) did u feel any noticeable gains? I'm considering these upgrades in the near future but would like a firsthand feedback from someone who tried them.
Thx

The RS4 return valve and the RS3 LPFP are basically mods that will help when I go for an Uprated turbo. I have no definitive info for the RS3 pump over OEM as the OEM pump was just about coping anyway at my current level of tune. The only issues I've seen are very low high pressure fuel rail drop offs versus requested. Some with more than 60bar difference. These issues were tracked back to the LPFP dropping off pressure below 4bar at WOT and resulting in a simultaneous drop in the high pressure fuel rail.

The RS4 valve did help with a "wave effect" I had with the OEM valve. The RS4 valve follows requested trigger and quicker than the OEM one and so should help with any tuning in future.

UPDATE.........

The R is now booked in for a Loba L0400 turbo upgrade including RS4 injectors and Custom GIAC stage 3 map.

A little more power with a little better spool! :D

Loba quote over 400bhp without WMI

Website linky....

Damn! Where is the "Like" button!

Congrats!

It would be great if you can show everything you did (parts needed) for this swap!
