      I am going to pick up on this, even though I know you're mentioning the concept of "truth in advertising" in fun. But I really should address statements being made about me and my company elsewhere....

      That's a different issue entirely. And here is my statement about that, copied from our facebook page:

      This has been covered before. But if you folks -- the same group you always are -- are keen to suggest a research trip on Alibaba to "uncover" all of our manufacturing "secrets", you might quickly...

      When Pontiac ran that ad campaign I happened to be working at an ad agency. Like car people, ad people all have very strong opinions about other companies' work. And boy did we think that ad...

      We undertook a project that parallels your idea: fitting a naturally-aspirated 2.5L engine to a Mk1 TT225. Some aspects were surprisingly smooth-going. Others, like the wiring, were a bit more...

      OP -- I'm sorry to hear you had difficulty fitting our inlet pipe. While the majority of our customers report no complaint or issues, we'll certainly look into the things you've itemized here.

      Who can feel the hate? I can! So much hate!

      If you people are looking for a well-thought out response to this latest round of Bonzo-fueled histrionics, give up all hope. History has shown that...

      Are you folks planning on upping this once a week then? Regardless, my earlier statement is pretty much self-explanatory. If you feel "compelled" to hate, then go ahead and hate.

      Today C2Motorsports provided me with the "primer" of voltage-to-airflows mapping for the R32 MAF setup being run in the car. To review, the changed MAF configuration is simply a larger housing from...

      Yes. That's understood. C2Motorsports has explained that. But the challenge of compensating for that "in-software" under-scaling, compounded by the hardware under-scaling caused by the larger...

      A few seconds of video of the car while on the dyno. This pull was good for only a touch over 310whp, but with a few adjustments to the boost mapping in BoostManager we got a few more out of it:

      Don't worry about that. In fact, turbocharged internal combustion has its genesis in altitude: the first turbo-superchargers were used on piston-engine airplane motors. So you're in good company....

      I'm having a hard time reading those graphs, but here's a simple question: how well has the "FTG" turbo held up while driving it? Because there's more to claiming out-performance of our products...

      We'll be working with Eurodyne to develop an AT-safe tuning file for their base file library. Granted you won't be able to pull with an FT'd GTI, but you'll get solid performance gains while staying...
    19. Is there a fault in the ABS data?

      The car didn't make it in to the techs today, so I thought I'd cover off the possibility that the ABS wheel speed sensors are somehow not communicating with the ECU. Logging blocks 001-002 in the...
    20. Will a FrankenTurbo hybrid K04 fit in a Tiguan? Yes it will!

      We at FrankenTurbo are probably better known for our hybrid turbos among the Golf and GTI crowd, but we decided to test whether our F23T turbocharger was a match to the 2.0 TSI Tiguan. Here are some...
