      04 pd100 bagged Old setup 94 JTI Vrt 60-1 .58ar exh obd2 440 racefile 20psi/meth
      08-25-2010 06:40 PM #27
      just finishing up on getting the last few things for my setup. ive got a mk3 gti (4bolt 2.0) swapped over to a vr. my cluster reads something like 240 000km, although im not sure if the engine has more. gotta love buying swap cars. going to be running 10-1 comp on that engine starting at .5bar (sm green tail wg spring) to4 60-1 turbo .63 exhaust a/r, think .60 a/r comp side.

      ill let you know how it goes. I have a feeling it's gonna bend some valves when its boosting as im betting the timing chain guides are going to be looking less than pretty. no worries theres another engine on the side. Also gonna screw up the tranny as its pretty SH itty right now running na.

      From what ive been hearing, there are more than youd amagine running high milage vr's.
      ring blow by isnt a big issue with the high milage engines, just run more boost. its your timing chains that are gonna f you at 200000 plus km.

      run it, blow it up. live learn hahaha

      Minimal... none piston or head related. Have a small leak from the oil cooler area which I believe to be the only source of oil consumption.

      Dont try to pass 550-600whp on more than 130k+ miles... I had forged pistons but one of my rods bent with that power.

      Stock motor and tranny (no diff), 8.5:1 headspacer, T4 60-1 and c2 42lb.
      Daily driven at 21 psi, boosted at 220,000km's and currently at 242,000kms.
      minimal to zero oil consumption between oil changes

      gotta love a solid, reliable 400whp.

      Redline 10W-30.

      Think I've got 124k on it, but I did rebuild it at around 110k due to oil burning. Love this motor. 7200 rpm shifts, 20psi boost, burns no oil, no issues, and I drive it home from the track EVERY time

      I would not be too worried about it. Ensure you have clean/fresh oil as the turbo internals seem to be unforgiving (ie oil changes and be more meticulous than you would be if you did not have the turbo - no debris, degrading oil lines, torn up oil covers, etc). Inspect your feed and return lines often and check for shaft play, allow adequate oil circulation/cool down time prior to shutting off the car, etc.

      My Mk3 is daily driven ~80 miles and I do not have turbo related problems. The car is driven HARD. The Garrett products have held up for 4yrs and counting (Gt35, T3/T4), Precision has been on it for a little over 8 months with no problems either. I've also experimented with "cheap" turbos on this particular car and again no real issues with seals etc.

      "Cheap turbos"? Ebay ? I've thought about buying one just to have on hand. As a backup.
