    It's Decided. 2.5 Turbo. Winter 2019

    Another Update! The car is done! Minus the tune and of course just some quick tweaks here and there. It's on the road with stock injectors atm until I can get it to the shop. I'm keeping off the boost but have noticed if it sneaks up to 0 psi it starts to stutter. I'm assuming this is because...

    Having difficulty with the fuel pump wiring. As previously discussed I used a piggy back fuse on the fuel pump fuse. The problem is that this fuse always has power! I assumed it came on with auxiliary power. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of just wiring it into a blank spot in the main fuse box...

    Just an update! Build is almost complete. Just need to finish welding the exhaust and put the inline fuel pump in and it's good to drive. Waiting on a BOV and boost controller in the mail Then I just need to get it tuned!

    Alright great! I already have that set up and wasnt looking forward to undoing it all. It wouldnt need to support 2 pumps amperage however if I did it the other way. It would only turn the relay on. The main power supply is coming straight from the battery.

    What did you do to your MK6 2.5 today?

    Also, made a catch can up. Vents directly from the PCV to the breather hose. I was able to use stock fittings with 5/8 hose. I had to modify the can by drilling a hole through the top and adding a breather filter.

    Ohh okay, I think I miss understood how the returnless system worked. I thought the ECU controlled the speed of the pump to deliver more or less fuel when needed. What would you suggest when wiring an inline pump. Control the relay switch from the fuse panel or directly off the wiring for the...

    Fuel pump question for yas. I was told to relay the inline pump off of the fuse. I got a piggy back fuse and rigged up a relay but got to thinking... Its a returnless system, so the aftermarket pump needs to turn on and off on demand (hence relaying it off the stock pump) but I dont think that...

    I'm a few hundred over 5000 CAD now :/ I could have taken some short cuts to keep it down but worries I may damage the car.

    IE 2.5 Intake Manifold MK6 Install

    Now that the intake is secured, put the dip stick in the dip stick holder and secure it with the 10mm bolt Put the fuel rail back in. You may need a little grease to get the injectors in. Use the supplied 12mm bolts to secure it. Number your wires for the fuel injectors then remove them from...

    IE 2.5 Intake Manifold MK6 Install

    So I recently put IE's intake manifold in my 2012 Golf 2.5. Integrated Engineering made an install guide and as far as I know it's the only one. Until now... IE's write up is good... but technical.. and its for a MK5 which has a vacuum system that needs to be attached to the intake. The MK6 does...
