Big Turbo Discussion Thread #2

haha, thought about that. Havent ever seen you say ur car is running or seen dyno sheet or anything. and you know what they say...you aint BT till you're BT. LOL. anyway, do you have a running vehicle or are you still in build stages?
It's been running for like 5 months.

I blew up my clutch recently and am down currently because of that, but i drove it to sowo this year. Sorting out fueling now. Haven't dynod recently, but mid high 400s low 500s should be very easy. I did 360 on my last big turbo kit (HTA 2873r on a APR kit)

You get 440 until you show dyno, lol

Motor mount, transmission mount, dogbone mount and insert are all in.

Car is a little rough on startup and sounds like a real racecar now. Handles so much better, had barely any wheel spin in 2nd and none in 3rd. Pulls like a rocket. I think my boost is a little too high. Buried my gauge (30psi) twice. Lol

I'm going to post this on both BT threads...

Seems like I am going to source a second motor and put my rods and such in that one over the next couple months. BUT...

I am going to blow mine up. I am going to see how much power, boost, etc. we can push through these rods for as long as possible. I will have my spare motor sitting at my shop while this happens. Hopefully I can put to rest if the limit really is/was 400.

What the hell do you have going on with that fuel line stretched across the valve cover??

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...
