    Thread: SHOW ME your custom VRT set-ups

    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


    2. 08-15-2006 04:27 PM #2
      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.

      Check my archived post in FI forum

      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.

      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.

    14. 08-17-2006 08:01 PM #15
      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.

      fyi i made 220 whp at 4.5 psi, unintercooled, stock exhaust on a t3/4, so i bet you're making a lot more than that on that turbo

      So all you guys running the C2 software have to route the bov back in ????
      Thanks

      That is correct. You still hear it though.

      If you release metered air on a Maf equipped car its always going to do weird stuff, C2 sofware or anything else.

      Not worried about the sound but thanks

    29. 09-27-2006 01:37 PM #30
      like he said the unmetered air that is let out will cause the car to have "Rich" spikes.

      I know the purpose but didn't know if C2 required it.

      The C2 still runs ok with an open BOV, as long as you unplug the upper O2. Doesn't necessarily purr like a kitten, but is tolerable. Re-routable is definitely the best option.
