      Hey Bill, if you want to get some bigger injectors, I'd be more than willing to go halves on a set of 8 with you. Depending on how and where you buy it might be a good option. I getin touch with (somebody) and I can get some custom made from Venom, but no telling how much they will cost. Let me know if you want to get in on something like this.

      Make your own.... there are many sites online that show you how...this is one of them ~~> http://snstuning.com/fpr.htm
      Basically, hook it up to a guage, and squeeze it in a vice till it gets to the reading you want.....
      Go for it!!!
      Thanks. I'll consider it. Neuspeed has a rising rate fpr that they are sending me some information on.

      Is everyone who has the smaller puley (2.6" or less) using water injection? I just want to make sure when I get the 2.6" pulley that I am not going to run into any problems. I can not afford water.
      It seems from reading the posts as long as I use 93 octane (which I already do) that there shouldn't be a problem.

      I ran with the 2.6 pulley all spring without water, but we have 93 octane here on the east coast.

      BTW, I know I should be saying this but yesterday I got bitten by an uggly a$$ chick with a 1.8T
      That's it, I'm tired of all this crab. Pulley is gonna be in before I tought... and for what I've been reading I guess there's really no need to get an adjustable FPR since the 4 bar should do the job, right?

      4 bar seems to have been more than sufficient for me. Do you have access to a vag-com. If so, read engine group 032, second block and see if it's a high negative number (the range is -25% to +25%). Mine was around -14% with the 4 bar and now around -2% with the 3 bar. Negative means rich.

      I don't think its to much of a problem. My car seems fine in the heat, you can feel the timing being pulled in higher rpms like 5k when its really hot. Hot days like today I just take it easy for the most part, just to be safe. I still open it up just not every chance I get

      Can you actually see puffs of black smoke behind you? When my MAF went south the car ran a bit rich. Also, when I used 10w30 oil, I would get a good amount of oil spots on my rear bumper.

      I'm getting about 2 mpg more with the 3 bar fpr. That's good.
      I'm ordering Neuspeed RRFPR to give that a try. I still start to lean out around 9 or 10 psi, and while I don't normally drive in that range, when I do, I don't want to worry about what the a/f gauge is doing.

      For those of us who don't know, can you explain the difference in function between the rising rate fuel pressure regulater and the normal 4 or 3 bar ones.

      The rising rate fpr (rrfpr) piggybacks the stock fpr. It starts off as a normal 3 bar fpr as you go to zero vacuum. As boost rises, the fuel pressure rises linearly until it reaches the maximum pressure of the fuel pump. Neuspeed measured 83 psi (5.7 bar) maximum at 7 psi of boost.
      As a matter of fact, Neuspeed put their rrfpr on their test car after they had head work done. The increase in flow caused it to run lean.

      I have been keeping up with this thread since I am very interested in th N/S S/C. The only problem is that they don't have one for the Throttle-by-Wire cars yet, does anyone know when they will be out or know a number I could call. I have written several emails but have yet to hear from NS.
      Also is it suggested just to order the high alt. version with the 2.6" pully right away?

      Hmm , didn't Eurotuner install nos on a NS sc'd car?? I didnt catch that issue, did anyone else?

      The DBW has been hung up in C.A.R.B approval. Apparently there is a new test that's been added the checks for emissions when the A/C is on. The GM lab that Neuspeed uses is shutting down and not taking any more orders for testing. The BMW plant (Chatsworth?) isn't certified yet. So they have to find a lab to test the car. From what I know, it's ready to go except for C.A.R.B. and being in Cali, they can't sell something that isn't approved.
      Living in VA, you would be fine with the 2.6 and that's what I'd recommend.

      I've got around 40,000 miles on the charger already. I'm getting a service kit from Magnuson that allows me to do preventive maintenance on the charger. It includes new oil and a new gear coupler, plus liquid gasket sealant. I'll take a picture of everything when I get it.
      While the oil should last 100,000 miles, they suggest checking it aroud 40,000 to make sure everything is ok. It should be clear and honey colored.
      To replace the coupler (its a piece that connects the pulley shaft to the gears that drive the rotors), you have to remove the nose unit. You might as well replace the oil instead of collecting it and reusing. The kit is only $25, so it's worth it.
      I know not many people have put that many miles on their charger, but I thought I'd share this with you for future reference.

      JR,
      I want to thank you for all the work you do on the charger and more so how you keep us all informed. I appreciate all the work you do on your car as it is something I would love to do to mine. I currently have the stock charger and have been reading with great interest all the pulley and water injection combinations. Thanks for keeping us all in the loop. You are doing a great service.

      UKGTI,
      You're quite welcome. I'm enthusiastic about the charger because I think it's a great product. I remember when I just got my car and all people taked about were chips and cams. I did both and was unimpressed. When the charger came along, it was the first true off-the-shelf bolt-on that made a difference. Since I was an early adopter, I tend to discover things sooner and am happy to share them with people.

      While i was at a friend's place today we hooked the vag-com up real quick to check my DTC's. Here's what I got:
      17663 Engine Coolant Temp - short to ground
      35-10 intermittent
      16518 0S2 B1 S1 No activity
      35-10 intermittent
      I have never cleared the codes in this car and this is all I have [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      The top fault is a result of a bad coolant temp sensor which I replaced 2 months ago. So, I don't think its recent. #2 - which oxygen sensor is that? Is it the one which was recalled? I need to talk to some friends and see if they can hook me up with the recall.

      Unfortunately, there is no date stamp on the DTCs, so they could have happened at any time. I don't know what could have caused the second code, but I would just clear them and not worry about it.
      The code pertains to the o2 sensor pre-cat. Bank 1, Sensor 1.
