      I've seen two opinions on the 1.8T tech forums:

      1. You NEED to go AEB, there is no other way, bigger is better and I must own all of the best parts on my show car.

      2. AEB heads aren't required...

      It all comes down to what you want to spend. You could do the bare minimum and meet/exceed your goal easily. You could buy a big port head, take on the additional machine work and buy more...

      If your power goals are a conservative 350whp I wouldn't buy an AEB head. More miles = more problems. When I rebuilt my AEB head I had to have all new guides put in and seats cut- machining alone was...

      Haldex & Standalone ECU Management

      I know this is the R32 forum, but I own a haldex TT so we're essentially on the same platform. Plus I'm hoping more people are interested in performance here than undersized tires on wide wheels.

      Essentially all 06A 1.8T's are the same. You can swap an AWP out of a mk4 golf/jetta or any other engine code they came with. The last 3 motors I bought were: $400 (Long Island), $450 (Rhode Island),...

      It looks like you'll end up needing a 1.8T motor (about $400-500 used) and a 4cyn 02M transmission ($500-1000 used, if you can find one locally). The swap can be done with basic tools (craftsman 100...

      A little review on their customer service.

      I bought these bulbs back in August 2012. Long story short the car was a project and I really only started driving it recently. I had one bulb start to...

      All- I hooked up a Stewart Warner mechanical gauge and found that I actually have -18 or so vacuum at startup and on decel over -20. Sorry for the jump to conclusions thread.

      My in-car gauge is a...

      I did the entire assembly myself and triple checked the timing marks but I'll add this to my list- thanks!

      To be honest, in my frustration and stupidity I didn't scan for codes yet. Also on the...

      I sprayed them only under vacuum at idle. I didn't do a pressure test. I think I can this weekend when I'm back at my garage.

      The MAP sensor is reading 20psi (wastegate pressure). I do have extras...

      I'm running out of ideas - any suggestions are valued!

      I'm seeing -10 in/hg at idle and I think it is contributing to the nightmare I'm having tuning my car. Since I'm using stock cams I should be...

      Joe- you know you'll have to change injectors and add an in-line fuel pump at a minimum to support E85 right?

      Also a tune that someone supplies you won't be a one size fits all application. You...

      Thank you- if you don't mind sending me your injector constant too? (are you running gasoline? What size CC motor used to calculate?)

      Having the above as a baseline would be very helpful!
