      A tip for anyone running motor mount spacers (BFI/custom 17mm height)...you have to remove the rear spacer, lower the motor back down to fit the new belt around the crank pulley. The gap between the frame rail is minimal and not big enough to fit a new belt through. These can also cause fitment problems of your intake/filter setup off the charger inlet. I couldn't strap my filter straight to the side (AMS tune) because it hit the top of the inner fender.

      How good is the base tune from Lugtronic for there standalone ECU? I am so sick of the very very old C2 OBD1 chip.

      The lugtronic base tune is really good. I was amazed at how close it was out of the box. Lugtronic or any stand alone gives you some good options for playing around with chargers. I actually run a very small pulley that would be way too much boost for my engine and I use lug to set my rev limiter down to 5600 thus keeping the boost at the level I want. Later when I install a spacer I will raise the limit.

      Tips on the best way to cut a rib off a Gatorback belt? I was going to try a utility knife with a fresh razor blade...any recommendations?

      Other than that, this thing is blast to drive! I have the old AMS tune/kit and the simplicity/power of it is amazing - even at elevation here in Denver. You can really feel it pull hard with the 268 cams at 5k+. This is the way VR's should have come from the factory, the GTI is such a blast to drive now. The V1 is kinda loud if the hood is open and you're standing right in front of it...but it really isn't bad when in the cabin IMO. Anyway, here's my obligatory first start video of the setup (temporary and ugly for now). Here's a link to my project thread for anyone interested: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...ean-Ginster-DD

      I'll be updating my thread with a ton of progress photos. If anyone has any requests on how things are setup let me know, I probably have a picture of it!
      Belt slip is very common especially on a v1 blower, if you dont already have a dual idler setup look into it, very simple to make and a night and day difference, im seeing 15psi on a 2.6 pulley and a v1

      At some point I'm looking at improvements that will include c2 software, smaller pulley & injectors. I understand C2 is written for 4-inch MAF. Anyone know if C2 would work all right with the the Pro-M? Thanks.
      Anyone know how the Pro-M MAF performs? Do most people with the VF kits extend their intake to get more uniform flow across the MAF? I've been told this is something needed to prevent MAF issues and burning up MAF's.

      On another note, I understand superchargerebuild will convert V9 F-trim to G-trim for about $300 to improve air flow capacity from 750 cfm to 825 cfm. I have also seen references to a V-9 H-trim but can't find any specs on the H-trim at Vortech site. Any info on the H-trim and whether an F-trim can be machined to either G or H trims?

      Thanks.

      It's not when I'm getting into boost at all. It starts at 3k rpm and when coming back down to idle. It only happens when the belt/engine warms up too so I'm thinking it's the belt itself.

      I cut a rib off my new gatorback yesterday so I will be throwing that on this weekend and will report back to see if that fixes it. Tip for cutting a rib off...make sure you have a new/sharp blade! I went through both sides of a new blade for the whole belt - it was dulling quite a bit going through that beefy belt.

      Since there can never be enough useful information, I'll post up a couple reference photos here of my install I was just going through.

      Oil return line bung location:



      The way it's routed up to the charger - straight AN off pan (could run a 45* too) to a 90* AN on the charger:



      Oil feed/return lines on charger:

      I should've tapped my pan on the rear. Now if I ever go turbo I'll have to use another pan or find a plug for mine. Thank goodness we don't have to worry about that happening.

      I just completed the install of my water/meth injection system. Not sure what nozzle size I should be using as I just got the kit for free and installed it as is. Works ridiculously well. Got it adjusted to kick on right at 5 psi, and man what a difference it makes in the SC heat.

      You may run into issues with the pan tapped like that, the return may be under the level of oil in the pan not allowing constant draining . Also the line should always be at a downward angle so the straight fitting off the pan is a no no also

      Taking the plunge with Lugtronic and put a down payment on the OBD1 standalone unit. Looking forward to ditching the MAF and running a true blow off valve.
      This year hope to move to a cogged pulley and rebuilt V1 with billet impeller.
