      Thanks, that's excellent. One more question... the restrictor... how can I be sure I have the correct one for my specific turbo (50 trim)? Can u post a pic?

      If it threads into your turbo, then it's the right one. There are 2 thread pitches, one is metric and it only threads into GT turbos, the other is NPT, and it fits T series.

      I've got the head off, making nice progress in my spare time. Some more 50trim questions:

      What do I do with the factory EGT probe that threads into the turbo?

      What do I do with the factory turbo water lines? Could I cap the feed line and plug the port in the block?

      Here's a pic, the EGT probe threads in just below the wastegate actuator arm

      Here are some updates, hope someone will benefit from the notes I will be putting up.

      So I decided to tap the manifold for the EGT sensor, actually also have an aftermarket EGT gauge so I will tap it in 2 spots.

      50trim has no water lines, so I am looking for a bolt to block off the coolant port in the block. I will then cap off the coolant line that would have supplied the stock turbo with coolant when the after-run pump kicks on. This way I can still circulate coolant through everything else when the pump kicks on, and if I ever go bigger turbo that is water cooled I can just make a line real quick.

      Uni received my ECM on Thursday and I got it back in my hands in southwest lower Michigan on Tuesday.

      Just want to know what others have done to get the line to the bottom port on the wastegate, where did the tap into? On the L shaped charge pipe, there is a small nub sticking out... can I put a vac line on the small nub and run that to my wastegate?

      In the hardware box there should be a banjo bolt/barb that threads into the back of the block and recircs to the passenger side near the coolant bottle.

      The side port on the wastegate is used for MBC, and the top port for the EBC, leave the top port empty if you're using the MBC.

      right, use the side port... but where does the source come from?

      Any boost source like the intake manifold would be good.

      so maybe instead of using the charge pipe nub to go to the n75, delete it and run straight from the charge pipe to the WG?

      You should be able to do that, just make sure it's a nice clean source, not a billion things T'd off of it


    11. 07-16-2009 05:22 PM #222
      Wouldn't the charge pipe be an inacurate source for the WG to measure boost because it's before the throttle body? Your N75 has to read the pressure from the charge pipe then it bleeds off pressure to the WG as it see's fit. If you are using your N75 in your software configuration wouldn't you want that t connect to the middle WG port?

      If you were using just the WG spring to control boost then you would connect it to a port off the intake manifold, correct? Since this is after the throttle body and a source of - & + pressure.

      This is how I've setup non-vw/audi setups in the past...

      I dont know... only ever had internal gates on my cars

      hopefully someone can offer up an accurate solution and help me weed out what is false

      If you could do it, I would run it off manifold pressure, but there are a lot of internal wg turbos that take a pressure source off the turbos comp housing. It wouldn't be that hard to run it off the intake manifold for a nice clean source though.

      When you buy one for me. I take a 3071k kit with a .64 AR 630 Uni Mafless tune and a SEM manifold. Add in some IE, Scat or other rods and i'm good to go!

      Since there are a number of different combinations of turbo's, tunes, injectors etc. you need to specify which combination you'd like to see dyno numbers from.

      I don't see what the real difference between this and a 1.8T 50trim kit is for a Golf, aside from some different intercooler and downpipe work. The 50trim kits on a golf make anywhere between 320whp - 370whp.

      If you want to find out what they make buy a kit with a GT3076R, build your motor and make 500HP. People that buy these kits don't always live on vortex to answer questions or IMs.

      ah, but you the seller would know these people and get their dyno plots from them to post for us who DO visit this site to check out

      And joe, remember you won't need the SEM intake mani w/ just a 3071. so you have less to save up for and you can get this much quicker!!! i totally would buy if for you, but w/ Audi cutting back on production numbers..........i ain't even buying race gas to play around w/ on the 2871 set up

      With the wife working a 60% of full time and my pay going down 17% on January 1 - along with a 18% increase in health care contributions I might not be buying much of anything after Jan 1

      UGH - but I can still dream

      It's in process. Unfortunately it takes time to get the articles up. I have one that should go up this week (stuff was bought back in February!) - but sometimes it takes a bit longer. The FMIC article is second in line after that as the one before it's been completed for quite some time now.

      As for my impressions on the FMIC - i'm extremely pleased with it - boost is up at least 2psi at peak and hold. It looks great and no heat issues at the track

      My only suggestion would be to allow for the intake and charge pipe to be located like stock so you can retain the strut tower bar and a somewhat stock look. I need to be able to at least have a chance at passing the visual for smog here in CA <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">

      If you can't pass visual inspection it's because you aren't going to the ghetto. I always pass visual in the ghetto and I live in California. San Jose area.

      Very interested!!!!!

      I think my most important request would be:
      If there was a way to have this kit work with the stock downpipe mounting location...
      OR
      If you include a 3" downpipe in the kit.

      Just because like most I already own a downpipe that was expensive IMO and I know it would be difficult to get a custom piece made that would fit just right like the 42DD fits.
