      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:

      The wideband said that I had a AFR around 10.5-11-.5 under 10 psi. Full boost at 3200 rpm.
      So I have bought a new fpr. 3 bar. Then we will see how it runs.
      Reason why it is a 4 bar there now is because my old Z-Charger want it>)
      Anyhow, Ive driven 2 full tanks off fuel in 2 days.
      And shifting from 2nd - 3rd and 3rd-4rd gear its like the ignition turn off for a sec. It hasitates... Like it doesnt get any fuel. The wideband said around 10 on the AFR.
      Maybe it gets TO much fuel? Strange it does not happen from 1st-2'nd gear?
      But other than that, it has driven like a dream.

      yea mine does the same thing. i', just going to chalk it up to chip tuning. it is really annoying though. I gotta figure something out thoug because I cruise with two other vrt (both FMU style fueling) and they run much better than my c2 set-up at the moment. I'm working on figuring it out.

      standalone? j/k hopefully it can be resolved with more plug gap experimenting. however after doing some research it looks like a pretty common issue with our software. If you read the kinetic thread (the big one) you hear many people speaking about the same problem. I think i'm going to try some new plugs sometime soon. Just dont have the time to mess with it all the time.

      I use 0.024 plug gap right now. I think it can be two things.
      Either it is the MAF that gets to much air BACK in the system when the Bosch valve lets the air back. Or it gets to much fuel..

      I had some hesitation issues before. Reason why, was because off the 4 bar fpr that was in. I knew about it, and got it changed today.
      The Bosch 044 pump is in "ITS CRAZY LOUD".
      Running 18 psi now, and its running abit rich. Around 11 in AFR.
      But its ALOT quicker and better to drive,l just by changing from 4-3 bar FPR.
      Thanx C2 Motorsports and this forum for making my car what it is today.

      Thanx for the answer.

      Strange thing now, is that when I hit 4000rpm on third, forth and fifth gear the car looses power and does not pull as hard as it should.
      First and second is perfectly fine...
      I havent pressure tested anything, so I might have a vacum leak somewhere. Right now I have the 6psi Tial spring, and are running 15 psi with the Kinetic MBC.. Maybe that is my issue?
      FPR is a brand new 3 bar.
      I have a new blue 15psi spring on my desk, that I havent installed yet.

      Anyone?

      New clutch kit and a 15 PSI spring is on my desk. Incase the Sachs sport clutch that I have now, decide to retire..
      Sachs Race Engineering pressure plate with organic disk.
      Sachs say the disk takes 420 lbs/ft



      Re gapped my plugs from 0.24 to 0.22 today. Seemed to work alot better. But on second gear, all the boost comes on like a bottle off ketchup

      Ive had some trouble in third gear and up. Like there is not much power left from 4000 - 5000 rpm's
      After regap, it seems to be better. But not like I was expecting it to be. I see no reason to push the engine over 5500 - 6000 rpm. No power to gain over there.

      And so you guys know im using 2 year old red ABD 8.5mm plug wires...
      Can it be them, that are wrong? I did an inspection/cleaning on them 2 weeks ago, and didnt find any damage I could see with the eye.
      They dont fit "to fat" where the OEM wires are. Maybe I have something going on there then.. ?

      Is it running rich where the power loss happens?

      No dyno yet. Ive had some troubles after 4500 - 5000 rpm from 4th - 5th gear. Seems like the engine is loosing power.. I guess its a typical boost leak. So I need to take a pressure test.
      Right now, Ive been driving for three weeks with 17.5 psi, and its great. No issue's. Vag Com had no faults.
      Pretty cool, when Vag Com found my engine. It said: AAA VR6 Turbo C2 Motorsports

      good to hear things are going well. Let me know how you like the new clutch after you get a chance to get some miles on it. i wonder if you are just pulling timing in the higher gears because of the size of the turbo and it reading the high IAT. If you can do some logs of you IAT in 4th and 5th and I will do the same except i'm only running 1 bar of boost. I'm putting togeather a post right now thats comparing the IAT with stock manifold compared to my custom SRI that I will be installing shortly.

      Well, if C2 could set some time off to help you out, you are not far away from beeing where im right now.
      We have the same car, so everything should be bolt on. The C2 ECU/Software is amazing. Several Japan and Audi tuners are amazed by how good driveability and "stock" feeling that I have.

      Just keep on call/Email C2 and I know the company will help you out.
      They have been awesome to me

      Just got 2 euro ecu's back from C2. One obd1 30#, and one obd2 42#
      Both cars runs perfect. No issue's, No nothing. Just like stock

      So euro ecu's are no longer a issue. Its working very well

      Vag com logg along with wideband check yesterday.
      AFR=11-12.5 @full boost. 20PSI. No wheelspin on third gear........ ?
      Car runs very well, and no issues. Blew a intercooler hose under the car, but that is what can happend
      Just a satisfaid customer @ 20psi
      Thanx C2 for support.

      "AFR=11-12.5 @full boost. 20PSI. No wheelspin on third gear........ ?"

      My friend has a C2 VRT corrado OBD2, runs about 12psi of boost and he gets no traction in the third gear, he can spin'em going 70m/h

      And I asume he have a LSD diff?
      My car are pulling really hard, and are driving perfect. But I can forget about third gear spinning. Even at 21 psi I had traction.
