Please PM an Administrator for clarification or permission BEFORE starting a thread or listing a business in your signature. Audits are randomly done and bans and citations will be given to violators of this rule. Each citation is reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the site administrators and moderators.

    Violating vendors of the rules below may receive a forum ban.

    1. Vendor advertisements Threads are to be posted in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Threads announcing promotions and discounts should be placed in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Cross-posting a thread announcing promotions and discounts across multiple forums is considered spamming and is prohibited.

    The technical threads have become much more argumentative lately. Although this forum is relatively new, members have approached me regarding the direction some threads seem to head. As usual, posts will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

    When a thread involves a discussion regarding a particular product or company that you may not be in support of, you are expected to post responsibly/maturely if you choose to comment in such a thread. Failure to do so and you will be subject to infraction and/or ban.

    In regards to the ban: The initial ban might be for two weeks, followed by a chance to come back to the forums with a better attitude. If you choose not to change the intent of your post, then you will be permanently banned.
    Simple as that.

    Take care and enjoy the forum.

VagCom Profiles & Instructions For Testing Gasoline, Spark Plugs and Water Methanol

I just logged with this, super easy but hopefully the logs turned out ok. I won't clutter them here but I posted links to them in my thread..

Boost and Misfires look good, what spark plug and what spark plug gap?

Your misfire log is way short, did you monitor 5 min at cold start, 10 minutes of cruising, 5 min at warm idle and then a full throttle (WOT) pull or two?

Your timing log was from 3,200 rpm to 4,300 rpm. What gear were you in? Re-try from 2,000 rpm to 6,500 rpm using the turbo mode on VagCom. In these logs you only show correction factor up to -3.8 degrees from 3,400 rpm to 3,800 rpm.

What file is this and which gasoline used?
I tried to log again but had some weird shiz going on, I loaded the misfires file and when it was running it went into and infinite loop of "please wait" messages.

I ran those on the 91 octane on the 91 file with meth, pump was replaced yesterday. The plugs are stock w/ 0.28 gap. I have new BKR8EIX's on the way should have them tomorrow.

I had to return the cable but I will borrow it again tomorrow and run logs on 91 and 93 with the new plugs with a 0.26 gap

Holy amazing thread Ryan!

I just swapped out my 1000 mile old pfr7b for the bkr8s

Look how hot the 7s got. The ground strap changes color almost at the base ring!

Did a couple of logs as well. I'm no expert, but everything looks good to me as far as boost goes.

I have no idea what the airflow is supposed to look like with a good after-market intake, but the airflow logs look smooth and consistent with my custom one.

In my timing log, I have a couple of points where timing is pulled, not sure if I should be concerned or not.

Take a look if time allows, I appreciate the input. All logs were done on the same road, 3rd gear, ~2000rpm to redline, 83 F Ambient T. I was struggling with the dsg "helping" me downshift from 2k rpm, so I had to ease onto the throttle from 2k-2.5k rpm to stop it.

Ok, these should be better.

91 octane on 93 file with Meth
BKR8EIX AT 0.026
85 degrees - if that matters.

One thing I just noticed was I consumed almost 3/4 of a gallon of Meth, my guess the start and stop times might be F'd up right now.

I'm trying to change plugs (for the first time myself) and attempted to adjust down from 28 to 26 as per APR. My adjuster didn't seem to have the strength to lower the strap and it also marked up the strap.

How do I close the gap and also, can I still use the plug

Tap it down lightly on a piece of wood or smooth surface. Also you might have been doing it wrong if you messed up your tool. You have to find the right angle and you'll bend it with little effort.

Hmm... Tapping down works.. Thanks! I re-read Ryan's first page and it seems if the plug is "marred" it's risky to use. So I went out and bought another plug.. Hate wasting money like that!

13k since my 3+ install last fall, 2 mths of hunting a boost issue (was tune related, thank you Arin), a cold winter, clogged catchcan and 4 qts of oil later...

This is a fantastic thread with a lot of time put in it. Thank you.

Can't wait to share some logs with my new w/m kit set up.

OK, Hyde. Finish my w/m set up. As I anticipated it consists of a two phase AEM kit with one nozzle installed before the TB and after the MAP. The nozzle is 500 cc/m flow (alternatives in the kit are 250 and 1000).

My goal is to try to get the best of the 98 RON (safety for track days) and 102 RON tunes (some racing here and there) with my current w/m set up.

I bought meth this morning and filled the tank without water. Was too anxious too buy water and make the mix and made a a couple of pulls with 100% on my way home.

Session 15 is 98 RON tune with start psi at 8 and full at 15
Session 16 is 102RON tune with start psi at 6 and full at 15

Note: Iridiums 8 gap 0.24" and 30 degress celsius (86 farenheit) outside

I know I should re test with w/m 60 meth 40 water by volume but I'd like to hear from you after this logs in 4th gear and read your thoughts.
