      Hi Clay,

      I apologize if this is a stupid question that has been hashed out before, but I can't find it exactly, so here goes.

      Would it be possible/acceptable to run 15 lbs of boost or so with a meth injection setup rather than a front mount intercooler? I ask because the car in question is pretty much a track day only car, and I have had really nice results by putting the front end on a diet by moving the battery to the back, removing the AC, etc. I would rather not put the weight back on or clutter the engine compartment with a FMIC. Further, some of the rallyX events (and WVa roads we run) wreck ravoc on the lower front end.

      Before I get slammed by others, I know that the Golf in not the best track day car or rallyX car, but the car is plenty fun and is cheap enough (we bought it new in 99) that if/when it is totaled by my crappy driving, I won't be upset. Just want more power!

      Thanks for your help,
      Tim

      PS - if it matters, the bottom end is stock and the head is fresh with a decent port job and a 276 TT cam (which I could change). I don't mind adding a head spacer.

      You could try running the stage 1 with water meth, but we haven't tested it with meth. If you were going to do it I would start the boost low and increase it accordingly.

      I know I asked earlier about a turbo kit for CIS but Im looking at going to megasquirt how would I do a stage 2 with that? Would I need new internals? Im at 10.5:1 compression right now would a head spacer be sufice to drop my compression. I have an OBD1 aba block so i know I have the forged internals.

      I'm not sure what car you have, but our stage 2 and 3 kits are fine with stock internals.

      injectors come with the kit, you dont need pistons because our kit uses a head spacer to drop the compression and thats included. You probably want to get a new clutch eventually.

      Digi intake and fuel rail....the megasquirt...not sure if the turbo will clear the intake manifold...the innercooler kit wont work at all...wou will need to fab up your own..the downpipe will work as will the wastegate stuff..you need more research..also the head spacer will work and get 550 injectors and shoot for 20+psi boost..but this has little to do with the kit at this point

      i have a 98 2.0l golf. for stage 3 is it a direct bolt up system. after set up everything should be safe right like nothing should blow or fail. what would you recommend upgrading after this.

      Yes, it is, the only thing you should get is a clutch aside from the kit
