    1. MPG is impressive with the 1.8 TSI engine

      I don't trust any MPG in the car ever since I started to keep track of this stuff myself. You'd be surprised - some are grossly inaccurate - you shouldn't base your findings on them.

      How many...

      VR6 turbo VRT racing oil weight

      I've searched - there are countless threads on OEM engine weight and what people use daily, but what about in race / track situations? What do you run? (specifically for VRT's, 24v / R32)

      very cool stuff

      I wonder how long things will last at those power levels (i.e. 1000)?
    5. Minimalist Functionality - a VRT build / internals guide

      Wicked news man. I'm definitely gonna need one too. I've only seen a handful of things made by HEP, but they were all quality. Mishimoto on the other hand - I can't recommend this rad to others.

      thanks Steve. I'll have to look into it some more at a later date. I just made the one I had work with the space, but your size cooler would be much better suited for that spot.

      Damn yeah- that HKs was my first choice actually - visually it looks much better, plus some features on it are really cool. But- couldn't find the damn things!!! Just barely managed to find a used...
    8. Minimalist Functionality - a VRT build / internals guide

      It's summer again! And track time once more :)

      I made a few changes -

      Relocated oil cooler back to driver's side bumper grille. In hindsight I was stupid to put it in between the I/c and rad....
    9. is the 3.2 vr6 from the r32 , audi tt , a3 the same ?

      Sorry I should have been more clear.....

      R32 and 2.8 VR6 cams in the MK4 are identical.

      The exhaust cam in the MKV R32 is different, along with the adjuster - you're right. However, you only...

      Have you tested the bearings?

      Jack the car up, and pull / wiggle the tire at 6 and 12 o'clock. If there's a lot of play there you probably need a new bearing. Next - put the car into neutral and...

      I would not mind if this suddenly appeared in my garage overnight.

      R30 is a 3.2L BJS short block with custom rods and using a 2.8L BDF crank to create a ~3.0L displacement.

      As stated, you will not have to worry about the crank etc at that power level. Either BDF...

      yeah I second power dubs recommendation. In addition, I'd personally also perform a leak down and compression test. At the very least a compression test should be done - it's easy to do and anyone...

      just double checking here..... did you apply assembly lube to the bearing faces? Without a head installed my crank turned over REALLY easily. It should rotate very smooth with little effort.

      also there aren't any idle pulleys on the 3.2 VR.... so it's probably either the tensioner or the clutched alternator pulley. Although that is hella loud for a...

      I've been looking into incorporating check valves after my 2 x 044 for a few reasons:

      - hot starts can be difficult, I suspect fuel is boiling at the injectors / in the rail after shut down
