    Thread: SHOW ME your custom VRT set-ups

    Hybrid View

    1. 08-15-2006 03:02 PM #1
      please if you have the time, show me some custom VRT options for the 12V, please list all parts included in the set-up. And also please explain your overall experience as what kind of WHP you have gained.
      Im looking to make around 350 WHP with my 12V VR6

      Ditto on that, 350 would be ideal. Seen a sweet setup by a guy who went to C2, but he's going nuts with the HP.

      forced induction forum FTW.

      My parts list and pics are listed in my sig. I've since stepped up to 630cc injectors and Snow Performance Water/Alcohol Injection. I'm currently only running distilled water and it has helped control the engine from knocking. I usually run anywhere between 12 psi - 20 psi on the street but have pushed 27 psi (by accident)
      I would like to get the car back on the dyno and see what numbers can be produced with the WAI setup.

      Check my archived post in FI forum

    7. 08-15-2006 10:09 PM #7
      I guess I'll whore it out first (I have ever since I went FI )
      The rundown:
      Garrett T04E 60-1 .70/.58 water-cooled housing
      ATP exhaust manifold
      C2 Stg II software w/ 4" MAF housing
      42lb (440cc) Bosch injectors
      MSD 8224 Coilpacks and 8.5mm wires
      EIP 9:1 headgasket spacer
      C2 Quickflow intake manifold
      Turbosmart Sleeper Series BOV
      TiAL 38mm Wastegate
      SPEC Stg 3 6 puck clutch
      Peloquin LSD
      3" ATP Downpipe
      3" turbo back w/out cat
      Dr Gas oval pipe tip
      Walrbo 255lph inline fuel pump
      Treadstone Bar & Plate intercooler
      ARP Head Studs and rod bolts
      VDO boost gauge and 42DD A-piller pod
      Cost was rougly $8,000 and some change for everything.
      It put down 367whp/370tq @ 18psi on a ridiculously hot day here in AR where, I'm sure, the ECU was pulling all the timing it could and it turns out I had a small boost leak on a charge pipe, too (didn't find out until the next day when it blew off, lol)



      Old nasty downpipe





      My next step after some VF engine mounts is the Snow Performance water/methanol injection to get the timing pull back to 0*. I've been running it on 15psi every day but I barely ever get into above 5psi. It's just balls-ridiculous how fast 15psi is on the street. A 4th gear pull on the highway is much tamer than a 2nd gear pull on the streets but the power is consistent all the way to redline. I'm currently looking for a large turbine housing because the .58 spools way too fast and I wanna save the tranny until I can put some cryo'd gears in sometime next year.

      wow that just seems like ALOT of wasted money
      I guess I have just lost my love for VW. After owning an Evo now for about 8 months I just ain't looked back.

      Like this:
      VR6 Coil Pack Alternative
      and to the Evo owner: I'm sure my car is over 400whp now (we'll find out on the 10th : crosses fingers : ) and for maybe another $400 (bigger downpipe and water/meth). Look at it this way...you paid $30k for 300hp to start with; I paid less than that for 400whp when my car came stock w/ 164whp. I'm sure it's no small feat for an Evo to push 400hp, though, I just wouldn't want to be looking over the cylinders when it does
      Granted, someone dumping $8k in an Evo is going to get some sweet results [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] I love those cars, I test drove an Evo VIII when they first came out and wanted one soooo bad but just couldn't afford the entry price.

      south bend clutch will cryo your entire gearset for 40 bucks...

      mk1 > mk2 > mk3 > (mk4 < mk5 < mk6) ... do we see a trend here?

    24. 08-17-2006 08:01 PM #25
      Here is my wip..
      Garrett GT3540R .82 A/R
      Kinetic Turbo Manifold
      20 Squared Tuning 3" downpipe
      3" Cat back to TT dual borla system. (soon to be updated to full 3" back)
      Custom wastegate reroute
      30# injectors, C2 30# software.
      Schimmel SRI
      7.5PSI non-intercooled. (Intercooler awaits in my living room.)
      Runs like a raped ape, very stable too.. Looking forward to higher boost pressures. I'm guestimating 220-230hp to the wheels right now, it's how the VR6 should have felt in stock form.
      Yes, I'm running a Kinetic manifold with a 4" intake and I still have my A/C system in the car. It's tight.. literally.
