      12.5:1 is too lean, especially with pump gas. I wouldn't push the a/f over 11.8:1.

      Right around 300 wtq is when the stock pistons tend to start going south-- avoid big torque spikes down low and you will have better luck keeping everything together. Be conservative with your timing and run some good fuel at the track.

      "Cheap" is not a word most of these guys worry with. If you are planning to run a "cheap" kit, then go with a bolt-on kit from Ebay. Keep the boost low and don't ask for a whole lot more than what you get after install and software. The 2.0L is a solid motor and can be pushed a LONG ways! But you have to spend money on the correct hardware and software to get to the level most of these cars are.

      You can buy a decent base kit for $600ish and bolt that on, get software from C2 or whoever for $300 or so and just roll with that. You'll be seeing probably 150-170hp and have a pretty decent little car. But there is a LOT more to get out of this engine, but you have to invest the time and money in a solid build to get it reliably.
      -J. Hines

      I'm sure some of these guys can make first-hand impressions from their kits. I'm just finishing my N/A build on my ABA and won't be turboing it until I swap it from my GTI to my Caddy.

      When speaking of forced induction, 12.5 is too lean, when speaking in n/a terms, 12.5 is rich.

      Went from this


      To this

      Supertech valve springs (ti), 276 cam, and copper headspacer. Needs a new dyno now.

      i think im going to be picking up the 276 cam and tt springs here soon. j


      then it will be lugtronics, and hoping next year to be tubliar exhaust mani, diffrent turbo and ie rods and je pistons. im going to try and get my gti into the high 9s low 10s.

      also i drove the gti all this week to and from my new job, a little over 250 miles and filled it up today with 8.5gallons of gas which equals out to just under 30mpg.

      -RV hydro head
      -homemade turbo manifold
      -Corrado intake manifold (had the ISV port I needed)
      -homemade 16v-to-OBD1 TB adapter
      -358cc injectors (some sort of Saab IIRC)
      -14b DSM turbo (clocked, w/aftermarket Garrett internal gate)
      -4 speed 020 (long ratio)
      -OBD1 engine management, tuned by me (see sig )
      -stock MAF
      -Stock "T2" intercooler from a 90s Turbo Dodge
      -2.5" downpipe, open wastegate dump, 2.25" exhaust for now.

      No idea what power it makes, I have no dyno time booked for a while .


      The IC piping looks odd because it's a hodge-podge of stuff I found at the scrappers.

      Been lurking this thread for a while. And now it has me ditching my supercharge plans for my 2.0L.

      I have a 2000 AEG 2.0L with the following:
      - ABD CAI w/ K&N cone
      - Tectonic Tuning 260/268 sport cam shaft
      - Sachs VR6 Clutch
      - 22lb flywheel
      - Unitronic Stage 1+ software

      I'm not looking to make BIG power, but something in the 170-190 WHP range would be great.

      Last time I dyno'd I had a bad cat that needed to be replaced and put down 108HP/118TQ.

      I saw the top-mount inner-coolers in the pics and has me intrigued. My main question is about heat-wash.

      Any suggestions about what I should look at doing to get those numbers?

      Motor is sitting with 155K+ on the clock.

      Just waiting on a few pieces of stainless to finish up the dv piping and lower pipe.

      No more tiny IC in the front like this picture.




      Ill get some nice pictures of the bay when I finish it.

      I can finally post in this thread.

      1995 ABA, about 100k miles, stock compression
      Garrett TB2522 turbo from a 89 Sunbird Turbo (clocked)
      Ebay T25 cast manifold
      C2 42# software with Bosch greens and VR6 MAF
      Ebay FMIC
      1.8t DV
      AN oil lines
      Turbosmart MBC
      2.5" Aluminum piping
      2.5" mild steel DP
      2.25" Eurosport exhaust
      Short ratio AWY 020 transmission




      Running only 5 psi right now (MBC bypassed, running on wastegate actuator only) as I'm having problems with the MBC. Full boost by 2800-3000 RPM. No idea what kind of power it makes, but its lots of fun
      Next season plans: Clutch, diff bolt kit, 10 psi and a trip to the dyno.

      Everything looks great ^^^ the swap, the turbo setup and the car

      Nice numbers Filthydubber and also a nice powerband , that thing must be a pleasure to drive. When do you see full boost?

      Full boost (19psi) before installing my LRI was about 35-3600 and now is about 3300.

      good strong power band one thing i LOVED about my big16G. that'll do a good 325whp if u up the boost. Ever thought of water/meth?

      Yes I have Quintin, but I'm only going to do it if I get it properly tuned for it. IE going to standalone, which would mean I would have to go to a 1995 or older chassis to pass CT emissions.....

      So for now Im just going to have Jeff Atwood write me a 630cc 4bar file and run more fuel until I swap chassis.

      this is prolly a dumb question, but if i do water/meth setup I don't need an intercooler right? I plan on boosting 12psi or so...

      if you're gonna have Jeff WRITE you a 630cc file then have him add a few degrees of timing to it as well. Jeff doesnt just say "oh here's a generic file"...

      Well technically he will be using my car to make his me5 2.0t 630 software, so it will probably be a generic type file. After he writes that, maybe he will throw in a water meth tune for me.
