    Thread: Well the quest has begun!!! Fastest VR6 on nitrous

    1. 02-04-2007 08:47 PM #106
      yea i wish there was someone that was around the area that has experience with it, i mean i guess just a good mechanic might be able to help? idk, but if you think of someone that would be down to help let me know, well we should definitely tear up MIR when you get back from school. I get my liscense back the day before the track opens so i HAVE to have my **** ready. i want to school my boy with his evo that went 12.4. I think the reason evo's are even going those times is there 2 step launching that you get when you chip them. on the highway i think i would school him.

      the first setup was owned by Jim. I doubt hes on here anymore, that goes years back.

      his setup was very nice, but also simple to do. look at the lines and youll figure it out. very simple, just the bends right at the manifold make it look serious.

      youll need a line bending tool and a line flare tool. both available from NX or NOS.

      get those, and its sooo simple

      You know, I've seen Jim's direct port engine bay/setup picture many, many times, but I've never noticed how damn close the bends are to the rad support/cover!

      I wonder if he had problems with the lines hitting the metal there! Our engines have some considerable movement when revving, etc.

      I would be careful about how much room you allow around your lines. I know someone had troubles closing the hood, because he kept them too high up the runners.

      I can imagine tapping the runners to receive the nozzles would be a touchy job as well! Personally I would have a machine shop tap the lines in for me to be sure it is well done. But then again I don't have an abundance of machining/tapping experience.


    11. 02-05-2007 03:37 PM #116
      yea i might ask how much it would be to do that for me, theres a great shop that does alot of nitrous installs, ill get a quote.

      im unjsure as to what nozzle jim used, but the piranha nozzles are much smaller than the shark nozzles. if i go direct port, thats what i will be using. shouldnt have a clearance issue then.

      yea that should be a solid car.

    15. 02-06-2007 11:24 AM #120
      so my boy is officaily going with an even bigger setup than ill have on his mk2 vr6, more details to come!

    16. 02-06-2007 03:01 PM #121
      this thread needs less posting and more spraying.

      seriously though if anyone needs help with their DP setup (flowing jets, tapping manifold, bending/flaring lines) or whatever hit me up, the wrenches are for hire.


    17. 02-06-2007 03:44 PM #122
      i was waiting for you to get in here lol!! would you drive down to northern va, about 2.5 hours from pennsylvania if thats where you at, and do me and my boys setup in a few weeks? $100 bucks for each setup

      car is looking good dude. im at a stand still for now. ive been pricing out my direct port parts, and debating on what to do. right now i can setup the single nozzle and have some fun and wait till i get funds together for direct port.

      its about 8* right now, and we expect 12" of snow, and the garage doesnt have heat so im also at a stand still with my motor. sucks. wish we had warmer weather so i can get this thing done.

      just came across your post, good luck, it should be easily attainable, i ran 12.6 on stock weight with 75 shot, cams, other motor work and drag radials....with a very crappy 60'.good luck

    25. 02-15-2007 02:34 PM #130
      word thanks for the good thoughts, nice time for what you had!

      yea, i just read the complete 1st post, high 11's should be no problems with the slicks, like i said my 60's were crap and i was only spraying 75 wet shot with full interior, but my cams were more aggressive and i had more motor work but looks like your compensating for the motor work, what kind of software you running....i had a dimsport cam profile for use with nitrous when i had the gas on my car.....very worthy investment

      nice, i know a guy on the tex has one available, but from speaking to some people about it, all it does is add extra fuel, and not change timing. i hear this and i hear that, i need a solid answer. is it in your car yet? do you own a vag com? if so, mind running a log on timing?

      i dotn have a vagcom yet, but i do believe it gets 4 degrees retarted timing, and more fuel, but its not in yet ive been getting the roof painted so i dont have the car ready for the nitrous to go back in.

      And btw i schooled a built b16 civic hb in my all motor vr6. By about 6 cars haha, damn no torque


    32. 02-23-2007 05:38 PM #137
      I did some resarch come to find out i saw a guy that ran a 12.1 @105 on a 75 shot direct port kit, I was curious why the low mph, and btw he was on street tires. I ran a 75 single fogger and only sprayed for 2nd and 3rd gear this past season and went a slow time but trapped at 107??? so if i can get the lanuch down i should be good to go for the 11's

    33. 02-23-2007 05:40 PM #138
      i need everyone who ever had nitrous vr6 to chime in, im also getting confused because i dont ever hear about racing with vr6's, so lets try to get some of our races in so we get some ideas for what vw's can do!

      my setup is all done, pics will be on in a few min!


    34. 02-23-2007 05:50 PM #139

      And a stuuna pic LOL
