      The intercooler plumbig took a little guess work, but the hardest part was the damn oil pan. stripped 2 little bolts and it slowed up the install. I removed alot of crap in my engine bay for cleaning and it made mocking up the IC pipes alot easier.

      I see. Your car is now running?
      We are so lucky to have tools driven by air pressure. So the oilpan change was like 10 minutes But the 3" DP is damn tight Like proper tight DP was put on AFTER the Turbo/manni..

      haha yea , I will try to get them up Saturday. did you use a gasket in between the turbo/downpipe? I did not, and, dont know if I should have or what? My goal is to not blow up my trannie in the first 2 weeks of driving. i'm so used to driving a all motor car i'm going to have to learn to drive different. What spring are you using? i'm running the 9 pound for now. ~John

      No gasket between turbo/downpipe. Spring is 6 psi, but I have a Kinetic manual boost conroler to fit. My tranny? I have a Peloquin and BFI stage 1 mounts all around. Should be ok .... For a while
      Try to use the tranny carefully. A friend off mine just blow his 8000 USD tranny on his VR5 Turbo WITH AP gearset and Peloquin diff. The diff is ok, but the AP kit is not useable.

      at 20psi with 42lb injectors you shuold be at 400whp or more. I've seen someone make 438whp at 20.5psi with the same fueling as you. Looking good.

      Yeah I hear ya, I have a stock trannie with over 100K of hard all motor miles on it. I'm not expecting it too last too long before it needs a rebuild. I have a spare trannie, but, I kind of want to put the o2m gears in there. Still trying to make up my mind about which route to go. I heard about the problems with the AP gears. sounds like a bummer, seems alot of people are out alot of $$$$. Hopefully APT will do something to help their customers out.

      To dyno the car, 20 PSI should be ok. But 15 PSI is what im gonna drive with.

      ok,question. How do I connect the oilfeeding into the turbo?
      This is what came in my kit, is it the 90 degree bend that I should screw into the turbo? Or do I miss a part?

      I do not see the peice you need there? I was missing mine tow! its one of two fitting holding me up (the other I broke) its larger than the two silver ones which are too small ( i'm sure you figured this out) i'm going to try to make time to go get one in the next day or two ...so If i get a part number I will get it to you. PS-which oil sensor did you tap into for the oil send~Turbo line?

      OK Then....
      First start today. And the car fired RIGHT up, NO ISSUES! No nothing!
      The VW tech told me that he has never seen anything like it. It idles and drives like stock.
      It was a wet road, and on 3rd gear i lost traction. I ran the stock spring in the Tial.. Red I guess 6 psi. With the ZR2 charger I had problems getting the car to LOOSE traction in first gear.
      This is a very big day for me, and all thanx to YOU VWVortex guys and of course Chris and Jeff at C2. MAF is working also.
      Im I one of the first in Europe to have a ECU swap like this?
      Very first ignition:

      Thanx. The idle is so smooth, and with a US ECU and all. I guess the diffrence is not that much. But I know Jeff has put some time and effort on it. Well, I have the big smile on my face because off him.
      And Alexi: 0.024 gap, no missfire, no nothing. I was awaiting some issues of some kind. But no. Nothing. Car runs like stock.
      2x6pack of to you all
      Here a pic from a Kinetic stage 3 with a 60/1 Garrett Turbo:

      Car is up and running, with complete 3" exhaust. 1 long muffler under the car and a muffler in the back with C2 OAP. Its loud as a f... !
      The C2 OAP fitts great, you just need to take your time and do it right.
      The ECU needed 4-6 start ups to "settle" The Idle was a little up and down. But after 1 our driving is all good.
      Car drives like a dream.
      Im boosting only 6 psi now. Im not gonna do anything before I get the widebang hooked up tommorow.
      Some pics today. Been raining the hole day:
