      I remember your post about the broken manifold. Such a bummer.

      I am running 235/45/17's so i'm going to be in much better shape than the average joe when it comes to traction.

      perhaps i have misrepresented my concerns. I have no doubt that the F25 > SRI performance wise. My main concern is whether there will be enough gains when you add the SRI to the F25. If the addition...

      Not so much worried about tuning (or physically fitting them). More concerned about the efficiency/flow curve of the turbo that Doug decides on. If the turbo is on the small side, targeted for low...

      how much does the frankenTT weight? The RS500 weights close to 3500lbs, while our golf is just under 3000. The 500lbs will make a different. The RS500 also has LSD, while many of the golf drivers...

      Yah, i wouldn't complaint about 350 crank hp either. And now that i re-read the dyno of the franken tt-rs, its hp peaked at 5250. So if the SRI allows it to breath and continue making power until...

      Very true, but that was up to this point. There was no other way to make serious power for under $3k before(c2 stage 2 is a $4000 kit, making 250whp). Now that Doug@Frankenturbo is working on the...

      That does sound like the door latch then. When the door is opened, the fuel pump is not being primed. And how you are turning the key without depressing the clutch essentially "primed" the fuel pump....

      and i wonder if the car runs the fuel pump when you turn the...

      Ah, didn't see that. Bummer.

      Mostly wondering whether the motor, combined with an SRI, would exceed the capabilities of the F25 or otherwise create issues.
