      looks pretty lean, what plugs are you running and what are they gapped to?

      I am about to mount a fmic on my vr6 corrado with a vf v-9 kit. Am I able to loosen the big vband clamp on the charger housing and rotate it so the outlet on the charger will face foreward? Or is there more to it than that?

      those plugs are from the previous owner. I think they were around .26 and were the ngk bkr7e. Replaced the with the same gapped to .24

      So I think I figured out my car's issue. Pretty sure it's the wiring to the MAF. was coming back from London to and my filter fell off and I ran it over. One more thing to add to my horrible day.

      So last night I went out and raced a supercharged v6 tiburon and lost. We did a 30 roll and a 60 roll and he won by like 2 car lengths. But then we did a 20 roll and I won.... I can't be losing to a tiburon.
      But on the bright side, I should have my water/meth setup working monday.

      Can anyone share some insight?

      Car kinda had a wonky idle. Sometimes it's high. Sometimes it bounces. My biggest issue is while driving normal and "feathering" the gas to maintain speed it's a little bit unresponsive for like an 1/8th throttle.

      V1 charger
      36# tune from c2
      6puck sprung clutch(not sure if that's even relevant)
      Stock Audi a4 diverter valve

      I leave for sowo(13.5hr drive) would like to work this out

      Only thing that might change this also is the vacuum line on the throttle body is plugged. Not sure if that matters at all.

      what boost are you running?

      you can calc the CC´s of the injectors 1:1 in horsepower.
      so 440cc @ 4bar will be ok for nearly 440hp

      its a stage 3 kit vfe says it will do 300 whp @ 10psi, so 300cc injectors? seems small, i will be running 4bar

      300whp?
      Not to be a negative nancy or anything, but I find that extremely unlikely from a vfe kit (or any standard V9 kit).
      Many here will agree that VFE is pretty shady when it comes to VWs, and they like to stretch their advertising a fair bit.

      300hp at the crank perhaps. After drivetrain loss, it'd be about 260-70whp.

      edit: their own graph for stage2

      looks like 250whp & 230lb-ft, compared to their advertised 280hp 250lb-ft for stage2

      add maybe 10whp per psi (their stage3 is 2psi more)
