      Peter -- the Audi TT225 weighs about 3200lbs, or in between those other cars. Plus it has really short gearing, so the "seat of the pants" experience is going to be altogether different.

      I have...

      Bumping this. We get enough customer inquiries for pump recommendations that I want to refresh the page. For performance and simplicity, this tops our own "FrankenPump" inline unit.

      Thx

      numbers well under 350bhp are plenty of oomph. The FrankenTT is certainly under that figure now, and part throttle with it is a little unnerving. I feel the "Stage2F" power level is a really good...

      FYI, we've had a twin-turbo N54-engine product in development for a couple years now. When complete they'll support 500+whp.

      And that's a really easy process. I know it's tempting to just import a given map into your file, but it's not worth the risk. Not when you can simply screen-shot the map you want to emulate and...

      This is it, yes?



      Have you data logged the car? Knowing its mass airflow values would be helpful.

      Well I think I speak for a number of people in saying let's get you on the dyno with the car as it sits now. It will be no problem to organize a beta-test turbo kit in the future. But it'd be...

      Is this car flashed with C2 software currently? If not, and you know FI is in the car's future, get them to flash the ECU and have it dynoed there. There's a real value in knowing your baseline NA...

      After we've sorted the manifold/downpipe configuration we'll be doing a round of beta testing. We've got a good relationship with AUTuning in Huntington Beach. I'm sure they'd be interested to test...

      Oh, yeah. And the VVT solenoid is operating the intake cam just like stock too:

      The car is dynamite. Even with the extraordinary mechanicals it drives with better refinement than it did on the 1.8T motor. Part throttle is smooth, the engine idles like stock, it turns on and...

      I reckon the supporting intercooler kit for Stage 2F would have to cost our customers no more than $500 including everything. And it has to be configured for a DIY install to the stock, plastic...

      What results did you get from the camshaft measurements?

      Software support for the F25 is going to be up to the tuning industry. There's no reason a file for the Mk6, MAFless cars can't be done. So hopefully it will happen.

      Chris Tapp at Eurodyne told me it's a no-no to import individual maps coming from a Maestro tune for a different ECU. And I haven't questioned that.

      I forgot about the intake piping. We can cover that with silicone hose. I prefer that over metal for cost and sound suppression.



      Yes. I have some ideas about the intercooler. My...

      Hehe. Hold your horses. Before anybody drops their keys in Ed Woolsey's hands, it's a good idea to go over all the "little" extra costs that any forced induction project would entail. Anybody want...
