      Needs to shift pretty early, because the A/R 63 on the T04S is not willing to play past 5000 rpm from third...

      hey I like the vid sounds good. You can really hear that gear whine. Very cool.


      what are your latest dyno numbers? I have a appointment set-up for monday the 28th. pretty much your set-up. but I'm adding WAI and plan to give 22psi a try.

      UPS called me today, and had a delivery for me.
      And all I can say is, if this stuff fits, everything will fit
      140 gold nuts and 2.5" OZ lips.. Twice the size from front. They are ABIT to much I guess. My car was painted last april, and I wided out so I can fit some wider wheels... But I think I went abit wide

      Sorry, you may have already said this but who's 3" downpipe did you use for the t4 60-1? I was told the Kinetic kit silicone, downpipe, and manifold weren't made for a T4 exhaust housing turbo.

      you can use a kinetic mani with a t4 turbo. as for the DP i guess anything could be welded onto it so it fits.

      The T4 GT35R will bolt on a Kinetic manifold. And yes, I will use a 3" Kinetic DP with welded on V-Band.

      Maybe I will hit the Rotomaster

      Nice project Was considering the SQS and now I'm sold, despite HotSkillet's pictures!

      Can I ask where you got the part arrowed? That is precisely what I need!

      Thanks


    12. 04-30-2008 09:12 PM #152
      that piece comes with the kinetic stage III ( I call it the dump flex pipe) so give them a call. You might be able to get something a little better. Mine has developed a small leak after about 15K on the kit.

      Thanks for the info. It looks better than my DIY attempt at a dump tube but I'm not sure they'll be willing to split one from a kit! Plus I'm in the UK, so sending a $20 part will end up costing $60 by the time it gets here! :-(

      Uh... no your wrong...again. I've used both. SQS were way worse than the ones in the picture.

      So right now, im abit down.. In the inner room, down in the basement

      My mechanic was laughing when I came, with the car on top of a truck.

      He said it was the gearbox

      I was driving around like always. 1-3 gear straight out, and this time only 10 psi. Was gonna put it back to second gear, but the gearstick was not going into any gears. No way! So I stopped the car, to check the cable connection. Tighten the 13mm that I saw down there, and it was going into gears again. But not like it used to.
      Ok, before this happend, at idle it was ratteling alittle bit as usual. But when i pusched the clutch in, the rattle was gone.

      But now the rattle sound did not go away immediately. Took around 2 seconds, and I could hear something was spinning around then it stopped.

      Anyway. Drove home, and thought I needed my mechanic to adjust the cables to the 02A the next day.

      On my way to work, the gearbox was acting like normal. It was alittle hard somethimes to get it into gear. But in the city, I mostly use 1-3 gear. So I went up a pretty big hill.. Got into 4th gear. Then when I was trying to get it back to third, it was no way. It dindt wanna go at all. After some gentle tryings i got into third gear. I was hitting the pedal, and now the clutch was starting to slip. After this it was no way to get it into 1-5. But reverse was ok. When I got it into reverse, and let the clutch go, I could hear a really bad "rattling" sound again. Got it on to a truck and went to the garage. My mechanic was standing there with his Lucky strike in his mouth and smilling at me
      It made my mood be alittle better. But when I showed him that it got the car into reverse, and the clutch was acting like it should the horrible "Rattling" sound came again.

      He said, this is your gearbox

      I had something similar happen.

      Once with a vw: was the clutch fork.

      Once with a talon: was the ring gear on the flywheel

      and a last time was the trans on the talon

      I had the same thing happen and it caused me to ruin 3rd gear. The clutch fork had bent over 30 degrees. I run one of these now.

      Sorry, no updates. Got vacation, and I wanted to spend money on that. So my VRT needs to stand still, until I get the money to fix it.
      Im really starting to get abit tired off it all.
      I mean, Ive never had a really "good/nice" car before.
      I mean my income is around 88000USD a year, but still, this car sucks so much money. And with the price's we have over here, I cant afford to have 2 ok cars.

      Ive been thinking off a Audi RS2 or a BMW 330XD Wagon.
      Audi from 94-95 model, and BMW 2000-2003.
      Both are around 50000,- USD..
      So a car is expensive over here

      Owning a VRT is a love/hate relationship...

      Either swap an o2m into it or drop the cash for a Quafie Dog set, anything less will succumb to the torque monster you have.

      Also a monster turbo that brings the torque on late and gradual will help you save the drive train.

      Im on my 3rd build and been been burned 3 times now, but in the end I always come back and looking for more power.. Gotta pay to play.

      Good luck

      I got the car home yesterday. Havent done anything to it yet, but we towed the car home. Car was at idle the hole journey.
      Thing was like this:
      Car was in neutral, and the clutch pedal was out. It rattles like crazy. Car in front off me started to move, and the rope to my car stretched and we where on our way. 20-30 km/t and I saw the RPM was bounching up and down. Like the clutch was not working, or trying to hook up to something... So I needed to sit in the car as long as I could, with the clutch pedal in hehe..
      And the Sachs Race Enginnering clutch kit have alot stiffer pedal than OEM

      Anyway, I really hope its only the clutch and not my SQS.
      Sent a email to SQS, and he was pretty sure it was the clutch.
      We will see, when I get the money to open this thing up.

      Been wondering on a Spec stage 3+ clutch.
      Any suggestions?

      And what happens if I buy a lighter flywheel in some "clutch package"?
      Does the C2 software allow this?

      Buy a Southbend clutch, keep OE flywheel and upgrade clutch fork.

      Southbend has my vote. I've had their stage 3 clutch in my car for about a year now and it's doing awesome. Much more grabbing power than OEM and still has the same pedal feel.
