      Ya, don't ask how I know, but that 7064 twin scroll will easily top 42-44 psi at 3200 rpm. :screwy: :facepalm:

      @Arnold- yea the turbo in the video is the .92 IWG 7064. The problem with that .92...

      Our tests have shown that the twin scroll housing is good for about 300-400 rpm quicker spool then the vband. All of my testing was done on the FSI but even here, at 4500 feet altitude, we are...

      A maf insert will richen the mixture and increase load readings. Look at your fuel trims and consider removing it.

      Might want to check your valve cover for cracks, if you're consuming a bunch of oil. Seen a couple of these recently as well- the PCV section cracks and raw oil gets sloshed into there, and ingested...

      For now, we use the Schricks on our engine builds. I haven't tested the smaller set, only the 268/260 and they work well. You have to be really careful not to put too much cam in these motors because...

      The twin scroll ones spool even faster, if you can make it work. :)

      Best turbos in a long time. Reliable and smoke free too- you would have to pay me a lot to use something else on my own car...

      On the bonneville passat we use a PTE 1000 bhp core, a huge 1600 GPH baitwell pump, 1" lines and a 50 gallon ice / water tank.

      Check the size of that unit compared to that frozen boost one- it's...

      Yes, if you look closely you can see the bosses for it in the photo. Right down by the head flange. ;) They are just blank on that prototype but they will be tapped on the production parts.

      Well, cam follower wear is mostly dependent on how much rail pressure you run. This car is running a lot, because it needs a lot... ~145 bar, so I expect it'll have some cam follower wear. During our...

      Well, the cams have asymmetrical opening / closing ramps, because they are hydraulic cams... The opening has virtually no ramp, but the closing has a normal "constant velocity" ramp to set the valve...

      Nothing of any real consequence will fit. The stuff which will fit, is just 2.0 FSI parts anyways- like the valves.

      Pistons are high compression but you would need custom rods to make them work,...

      Just to clear this up- the 2.0 FSI sprocket is for way finer pitch chain. It's very close to the same diameter, but there's no way you could assemble a 1.8t chain onto it. It wouldn't even go down in...

      Looking great so far! Sorry about the chain tensioner- I'll have the guys add a note about that to the instructions. I could have sworn I've wrangled one in there before, but who knows. Girdles are...

      It's always super hard to tell from these photos just because no one angle shows everything- but as long as I'm counting from the right roller on the exhaust cam, that looks like 16 to me as well.

      Yep, putting our shop 337 back to a Dual mass flywheel as well. Can't stand the powerstroke rattle, and who cares if you have to replace it every 75-100k miles. This car has 45k on it and it's a...

      Incorrect balance of individual components will cause shaking of the entire engine, perpendicular to the crankshaft. This makes sense if you think about it. The balance forces are transmitted to the...

      Torsional vibration has nothing to do with balancing individual components before / during assembly. You could balance everything down to .01 gram and still have this issue.

      Bump:

      Still looking for someone with an '09+ 2.5L with a manual transmission who would like a free chip tune. We will need the car for several days to get it done, perhaps up to a week, depending...
