    Thread: BBM CHARGER OWNERS 2.0 X-FLOW

    1. 07-04-2007 04:59 PM #2076
      What are you running exactly for it to be too loud lol. Currently i got the 2.25 techtonics with the single muffler and I love it. I would kill for a Milltek single muffler system with a high flow cat and 2.5 piping but i can't find a muffler from them.

      Question for the group, where I live, I have never seen 92 Octane gas. 91 is the best we ever see around here. How bad is it to run 91 with my charger? I do get some slight pinging under hard acceleration on hot days.

      Test pipe + tired mufflers = too loud.

      Seems like you and I are in he same situation, except my exhaust is not as loud as yours but boy is it pieced together, and the bends of the tubing I used are not right so the tubing rubs around underneath making bad noises, it will be replaced with a much better set up when I can though, still trying to get this 16v built up the right way first, I was going to go with the stg 3 set up, but when I thought about dollar for dollar, the 16v is worth waiting for plus I have been needing to fix some other issues with the car first, but those are being taken care of one by one. well talk with everyone later, hope the heat does not rob us of to much HP this summer.

      Compared to last summer without the intercooler. It's night and day between the two. My car feels like it doesn't even care about the heat.

      When I'm driving around I usually see 45-50ºC intake temps, ~120º F, I cant imagine what they were without the intercooler.

      Hey John, I saw you updated the site about the Stage three. Is there any way for us to see pictures of what you did to the Diverter and the "stand-off."

      Yes, I will try to get some new pics up by the end of the week.
      And if the IC tubes make it back from the powder coat house at about this same time we will officially release.

      If your systems are working correctly, such as the knock sensor. Your car should kick out some timing before any real danger to the engine. My car also very so slightly knocks at heavy hot driving loads. Normally aspirated cars can also do this. If it is very light or barely noticeable you might be ok. Hard to say.... what boost and or stage are you running? Are you running the billet maf housing or the VR unit? 91 octane is safe if your car is doing the right things and you are running one of our packages as it is was tested.

      I am currently running outdated software and the stock 2.0L MAF Housing. These are all to be updated soon. My wife's car knocks all the time when it's hot and we've put 130k miles on it but I've never heard my car knock before so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going to hurt anything.
      Thanks for the info.

      Well John I'm not sure what kind of love you're looking for here, but I can speak for myself when I say I have not had any real issues with the set up since I installed it, I love the set up and i'm currently builing that 16v for the use of this charger set up. My car starts every day and gets me to my destination and back home each time, except of coures the time my entire rim came off the car going down I 5 but that had nothign to do with the set up. I've taken the charger out of my mk3 stored it for a bit installed it in a mk2 and still runs like the day I first bought it, It does run rich from time to time, but that is known to happen. Over all, I would still recommend this set up to anyone who is wanting to use FI on thier 2.0

      There is a feature on John Betz and the stage 3 test car.
      Congrats John!

      My car is the stripped down version with no power windows or anything fancy. I do have XM radio a boost gage and afr gage with the BBM billet shift knob.
      I did provide them with my dyno plot, it is the 225 whp chart at about 16 psi, sea-level run. There is a dyno plot on our site under the Stage III power upgrade package.
      Oh, the first Stage III kits are getting rounded up for shipment.
      This kit has a pretty long list of parts... I was surprised when putting together the bom / pick list.
      Thanks again guys

      Well John......
      The editor of Eurotuner ia a jack ass for not including that.......
      To exclude that important piece of print is a terrible discredit to you and your company......They print the pros and cons of each setup but not they dyno plot...
      That's the problem with them...to much fluff and Skanks posing like it's hot import nights......
      Kill the Editor.....
      Dave
      PS while I'm an a magazine hatin rant......
      Lets not forget the folks that send in pics of there cars for readers rides.............
      Get a life.......If a car mag wanted your car for a feature they would contact you........and if your car is tucked away and you don't drive it any place or show or race it......your gay....
      A car you don't drive is like buying an ice cream cone and not eating it because it's to nice......
      Or having a girl you don't have secks with because she is to beautiful........
      Either way....just stupid

      Hey John, What's the length of the serp belt for the kit with No A/C and the 63mm pulley?? I thought it was posted somewhere but I cant find it in the 60 pages, lol
      Found it, 6PK1360 Conti

      when you install that can you take pictures and post them,I am interested to see the route of the belt and how it sits with out having a A/C compressor in place. When I get around to fixing up my 16v I am not goin to run PS,A/C on the car, this will make the belt length interesting with the set up. I want all the ponies I can get out of this motor.
