the mk3 rejected that 5th cylinder
man im moving to canada lol!
a dream of mine is an AWD mk3 400ish HP
youve paved the way and made life easier. everyonce in a while i get the crazy mood and start cutting welding shiz that dont go there just like this. this tops the cake. saving several pics for future reference of rear subframe etc if you dont mind...
$$ is the only issue. to be able to think i need and just go buy, not wait to pool it up .. but im very happy for you man.
shiz looks so much fun to drive. i would just sit there and be power sliding in and out of corners all day, tank of fuel after another lol
you can really see the even power curve now with the new wastegate vs before. on the last or first graphs.
i had figured it was boost creep but you got around to it.
you dont think a 50mm would've been suff.. or just got a 60mm cus its better suited..
went to napierville today and went email@example.com on 17" street tires
Is it okay if I ask how much you estimate you've invested in this project?
a little math can show a pretty close aproximation of the power needed to the ground to attain 146.5mph according to the cars total weight with driver.
wheel hp= (mph/234)^3 x total weight of the car
so (146.5mph/234) exponent 3 x 2850lbs = 699.4 whp
so to answer your questions about 700whp and yes stock 02M gears
ok, that helps me to understand the 10.1 @ 146MPH, I see, with the 700WHP it will get you there, when I saw your last Dyno numbers posted showing 599 awhp and 500 awtq @25psi then you posted back that you ran the 10.1 @ 146MPH, I was like what I'm surprised your stock gears 02M tranny is holding around 600WTQ love your build, beautiful work

when i did my first run that day i ran 145.6mph i reacted just like you ! You see a few weeks before, just after the dyno i ran 139.8mph wich was confirming the 599whp. than i made minor changes to the car and went back to the strip and ran in 146mph at the same 25psi i was running before.
wow sir what a build. wish i could do those things with my cabrio.
hoping one day to make it v5 itb or supercharged. fighting with a 1.8 auq currently
v5 for the sound, 3.0tdi because racecar, 1.8t because boost, droptop = priceless and everything else Mastercard
Is this car still up and running? Very impressive by the way.
