    Thread: The Thread Build (BuildUp:)

      Here is a VAGCOM printout I did a couple years back when I had my old custom TT chip installed. You can see my timing never went as high as yours.

      Looks like you needed an upgrade. Keep in mind I'm running the stg 2. Idk if the timing is different or not. It should be due to the lower dynamic compression a hotter cam would create. Timing is pretty much the only way to increase HP without changing anything physical on an engine. Assuming the mixture is ideal (we know its not) stock. If the chip does make more power than any other, I would not be at all supprised if it had the highest timing.
      What are people running with stand alone?
      I see you had a little knock in 3rd. what were your engine specs and octane during that run, just out of curiosity.

      My engine was full-out done. Its the set-up I pulled 135whp with. The knock in third was from a faulty #3 plug wire.

      Ah, OK. So you could have probably benefited from a little more timing. I just scanned my car and I had a Bank 1 rich p0172... What the heck do I do about that? I guess its time to replace that O2 sensor.

      Here is the timing map for 89 non E10 gas run. you can see I did have a little KR on 2 and 4. It is far from consistent though and my total timing is still up there. My next log will be with 87 E10 fuel. At this point the only time I'm going to run premium is at the track.
      What do you guys think?

      Hey man, if you need any 2.0 stuff let me know. I live about 15mins from womelsdorf. I got alot of "goods". A few short runners I built,some cams laying around. I got a few obd1 heads 1 or 2 P&P Obd2 heads with TT valvetrain. Just trying to get rid of some of this stuff locally.

      Finally Back! The next phase of the build is underway: The Engine and Trans!
      I finally got the engine and trans tore out of the parts car last week. This week I dropped the trans off at APTuning in Lebanon for a rebuild. They only wanted $300 labor to do it so I figured it would be worth it.
      Got the engine all tore down except for the distributor. How do you get that darn thing out of the block by the way?
      I ordered a TT 276* and when that comes in I will check bearing clearances and if the head is good I will start porting it and take the block to APTuning to have the machine work done.

      Check out the sweet condition of the pressure plate
      Tonight will be a little measuring to make sure my crank is still good. Bearings looked fine so I don't think I will have any problems.
      What kind of paint should I put on this thing?
      BTW those wheels and tires are for sale if anyone has a real vehicle

      LOL, Yeah I knew I would get some crazy responses from that. What "kind" of paint, not what color. Its going all black BTW. Should i just go with spray bomb stuff or should i use automotive epoxy primer and the factory body color black?

      Got the distributor our, just needed a hammer. It's all broken down and ready for a trip to the machine shop. Only 1 main bearing was down to the copper.

      CC'ed the chambers. Got around 33cc's. Does that sound right? Does anyone know any chamber size to comp ratio stuff figures? I've heard people say that these engines are anywhere from 9:1 to 10.7:1 comp ratio stock, what is it?? Of course the search is disabled while they rebuild.

      Got the trans back from the shop Thursday. IDK if it works yet. I can't spin the axles in opposite directions like I assumed I should be able to. Is this normal? Sometime I'll put a shift lever on it and try to run it through the gears.

      Does anyone have a good source to get fittings to install an oil pressure gauge?

      I think it has about 176k on it. I was surprised at how clean the intake ports were.

      So both heads I have are cracked in #1 chamber between the valve seats... I thought I read of people using the heads like this without problems. One of the heads i bought on a running engine and it ran strong. The concern I have is that i will be putting bigger valve seats in and I don't know if the head will hold up to the machining process. I don't want to have any problems with this thing when i put it back in the car. Should I just look for another head?

      The valve kit I'm going to be using.

      Got my block back from my buddy who glass beaded it for me. Next it's off to the machine shop with the stuff. I'll try to post a pic of the block. A problem I noticed is that the sealing surface where the water pump bolts to the block is corroded where the o-ring sat. Hopefully some good RTV will hold it. It's pretty bad. Any suggestions on a fix?

      Light Weight Lifters
      Mildly Ported, Port Matched and Polished Runners and Chambers

      Will it make 140whp?

      Maybe/maybe not. Hard to say with a stock manifold. You will have retarded low end torque (below 4500rpms).

      Block crank and rods off to APTuning! Going with JE pistons. Gotta schedule some dyno time to get a before reading.

      I was working on port matching the exhaust and tried to set the header on the head and line up the holes.... Once I lined up one port the closest one was 1/8" off I hate crappy junk. But, I also hate spending $300 for some tubing. So I'm planning on using lots of heat and maybe having the flanges machined flat once i get them all lined up.

      Stupid OBX!!!
