      The car is factory tuned for low octane fuel and MPG is the #1 priority. With the exception of rev hang, which burns a tiny amount of fuel, there's not much more to be done, especially on 87 octane. ...

      Ya... Following "best mpg" driving practices will do FAR more then any mpg calibration would. The factory is already running the car very very lean 99% of the time. Timing gets bumped a bit which...

      Just take them out. You'll likely want the access for the cage work anyways.

      Hmmmf. Maybe just early cars then? We have an '08, '09, '13 - none of them have it lol. No CEL will be caused.

      Let me see what I can do.

      On the high compression stuff- we had to order a spare...

      Hi there,

      Sorry about that. We think it's a Jetta thing- you're only the second person to report having that sensor "loose". On the Golfs / Rabbits there just isn't one. That said, for all motor...

      I will see what timing advance looks like with 11.5:1 on stock cams tomorrow hopefully. That'll tell us what's up. :thumbup:

      Few things:

      We are working on dyno numbers. We had to pull the CNC ported head OFF and put a stock head back on to get numbers that are worthwhile for you guys... Our baseline SRI numbers are...

      I would guess that's the way most people would want to go. Feedback? I wouldn't say the 2.5L is a great candidate for swapping internals IN the car like old 1.8t's etc, but not having to haul...

      Wastegate spring is fine. 3rd gear, load it up, get out of it, decel some, load it, etc. Or 4th, same thing could be accomplished safely on an empty freeway- no need to redline. Just need cylinder...

      Just because if you don't run one pressure bleeds immediatly when the pump stops- this means VW's door latch pump prime scheme totally fails and you have a long cranking period before it starts.

      Well, I used OE injectors, with about 100psi fuel pressure. But, it was at ~100% duty cycle, and we're 15% below sea level atmospheric pressure. In other words, at sea level, and at a "normal" rail...

      No, I mean 11.5:1. In fact, might even go 12:1, but I think with factory cams 11.5:1 will be the best compromise. Still up in the air if we put together a package.

      290 isn't a problem because VVT. Intake cam is in about a 120 centerline when all the way retarded. Thing even idles smooth and has vacuum. We've tested them over 1000hp / 40+ psi. There will be no...

      If you guys are interested in a high CR package, which would likely be pistons and a tune, in addition to your stage 2 hardware- please email sales@performancebyie.com. I'm going to test that setup...

      Are you running a check valve after the inline pump?

      If not, you need to be.

      Cheers,

      This motor has a cnc ported, remanufactured head with huge valves, which required changing all the intake seats. Then ferrea valves, billet cams, etc... Custom billet rods, the best of everything....

      Hank is in Las Vegas. Iroz Motorsports. ;) He's also making a gorgeous turbo setup for these I should mention, using the spectacular borg warner EFR turbochargers.

      There are already a bunch of these motors in Europe... Hank has been shipping them over pretty steady.

      Doug, these motors are not 1.8t's- they need pistons and rods once you get to ~400whp. The...

      Sorry about that. Product got moved and the blog doesn't auto update links. I will tell Tyler. :)

      Cams: 12mm lift, 290 degree advertised. Require checking and correcting intake valve clearance on pistons. Valve guides must be installed deeper (about 2mm) for stem seal clearance with the lift.
