      so as it turns out, not so bad.... the press in retaining clip that holds the 5th gear fork on, went away so 5th tried to go too. making it super hard to get between gears. so took the opportunity yanked that stumpy 16v 5th, took the 5th out of my old mk3 trany. now it shifts smooth and i have a taller 5th. all is well

      cool. so the old 020 is not that bad after all as many people complain about it.

      Bump.
      Awesome numbers, absolutely awesome. I love how it pulls right to 8k, soooo sick. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Did you ever get the bigger injectors and re-tune?

      hmm, coming to this forum via the scirocco forum, what size pistons are those? is it 2.0 or bigger? also, i love the redline you've managed to come up with--how is it to drive? that is what is gravely lacking in this thread--i want to hear just what it feels like to rev this thing to 8000. and if this is a 2.0, how did you get over 200hp? is it mostly the ITB's? cams? porting? i realize it's all of the above but what is the biggest kick in the ass?
      thumbs up from the 16v scirocco crowd though. i keep bitching about building an engine like this on the scirocco forum and everyone's always saying go for torque. so how do you like a high HP and medium torque engine? i love revs & i'm not trying to fault you in any way so forgive me if it sounds that way--just want to hear all the specifics of an engine like this.

      Just read though your thread, mate. Very impressive.
      I'm building pretty much the same thing only with a 1.8 KR and on 45 DCOE's. Nice to see some big numbers.. Gives me hope!
      My thread is here: http://www.vwwatercooled.org.a....html If you are interested.

      Any updates?

    21. 05-28-2012 12:29 PM #221
      no updates. not much has changed. messed around with the exhaust a bit. did a tt 2 1/2 for a while and it was far to loud. am now running the tt 2 1/2 with a super sprint rear muff. i have not yet gotten larger injectors. i did have a long talk with the guys at usrt about it and they seem to think that i should be ok with the injectors that i have if i up the pressure from 3.5 to 4 bar.
      i am toying with the idea of switching to some dth itb's ether the badger5's or twm's just to clean things up a bit. if i end up keeping the gsxr's i will retune for the 4 bar later this summer.
