I had it on the K04 too. I think I may be able to fit a stock sized turbo inside it. LOL. Whatever I guess, more in/less restricted=more out.

Fuck. Yes.

We don't have enough of this knowledge on the TSI motor yet. And it's a 5 year old motor!

Has anybody thrown a rod yet?

Supposedly the rods "bend". And I did a lot of research and I can't find anyone who has thrown, bent, broken a rod from sheer power. I HAVE found oil starvation, injector failure, and timing chain failures which have caused problems.

I really want to do this for the community that has helped me so much. I hope I can get a cheap motor nearby. And it sounds fun...

I think I gained about 500 rpm of spool time with the Truboost quick spool settings. I was spooling around 3500-3700 and now I can't spool at anything under 4000 after disabling it

Lol, that's just me moving it out of the way for the pic. I rerouted it later on so it wasn't in front of the aqua manifold.

More than welcome to do mine lol

Just a thought but after I'm doing getting my current crap running, I may fund you to build a 2nd block on the side to just swap in when the time is right

I have never in my life seen or heard anything about a TSI throwing a rod. I think this notion that the community cries that you need need need to build your motor to go past 400whp is super played up. Same thing goes for the FSI motor. Everybody says the world will end if you don't have rods past 350wtq and yet I have only seen one post of a rod ever bending. I think the fear is all a bit played up.

Yes it may be played up but should you really trust a crucial engine component that was designed with 200BHP in mind?

That's why I want to figure out the real truth. I already have 10k+
Miles at over 400 WHP.
