      Just to add, my software is based on the R32 turbo software, C2 has available. This is due to the R head and fuel rail. This software is loaded on a 2.8l 24valve ecu. The ecu is set to match the 80mm TB, TT 264/260 cams, 2.9l bottom end, 8:5:1 JE pistons, 550cc injector, with 8200rpm redline.
      I plan on saying in touch with Chris, and maybe improving on the tune in the future.

      Oh, me too!!! Gt3582r T4 at 8000rpm must sound like a jet engine. I can't wait to break her in. I am hoping for DD reliability with the power levels of most high-end p-cars. Gonna try to suprise a few folks in August, but for now we still got a bunch of work left.

      I know some folks look at this build and wonder why i would not choose some standalone (i.e. Lugtronics); however for me and this chasis, i need to be able to pass NJ state inspections/emissions without issue. I look forward to trying to max out the OEM maf, ecu, etc. Before switching the block to an S4 chasis in a couple years, i would like to upgrade to the Pro-maf set-up with 980cc injectors or something equally sadistic. In the future, i also want to purchase a billet wheel'd GT 40/42 that fits within the T4 frame already in place. That is down-the-road dreams. For now, we can concentrate on what this GT35 can do.
      Thanks for the kind words and comments. Keep 'em coming.
      More to come!?!

      So....took the VF mounts apart to clean up the hardware and found the inner bushings to be toasted.



      So who knows how much replacement bushings for the VF engine and transmission mounts cost? Anyone know a supplier i can contact to grab these before next weekend?
      I have brand new 034 motorsports Track Density mounts that i am choosing not to use(other than the dogbone mount) after reading through the "034 mounts" thread.
      Please help

      Yup...just got off the phone with them replacement bushings for both engine and trans mounts are only $40 + shipping. I think that is cheaper than replacing the VF dogbone mount-which doesnt last more than 15k miles. Wish i had the $$ for the DLI-Technique mounts, but refreshed VF should do the job.

      Is only 15k miles your experience? I thought others had gotten good life out of them (but still, like the engine mounts, needed replacement at some point) ?

      I only got 15k out of the VF dogbone mounts bushings. At just over 15,000 miles after swapping the 24valve + O2M i got some harsh front-back banging and movement from dogbone mount. All hardware was in perfect working order but the furthest poly bushing was destroyed and the middle poly was badly mangled, with not much life left at all. I contacted VF back then, and was able to purchase the replacement dogbone bushings for $50 + or -. When we removed the stock block for this build, at 30-35k miles, the dogbone bushings were toast once again. The engine and trans mounts appeared just fine, but once taken apart, you can see the damage in the pic above. I truly loved the ride with the VF mounts, and will be using them now--refreshed--on this turbo monster.
      Let me add that VF was/is great to deal with, and was happy to get me new bushings with minimal cost/hassle.

      I have read good things about the DLI mounts. I would love to try them down the road. I now know where mileage plays a factor on wear with the VF mounts, as well as what areas to check for splits, cracks, and deformation. We will see how turbo tourque effects what i have seen from the stock mileage i have done. If DLI was stateside and a little cheaper, i would love to grab a set. I am gonna try the 034 track density dogbone mount, and try to sell the 034 engine and trans mount. Thanks for posting up. Stay tuned for more work.
      Tommorrow we will be looking to drill the back side of my powdercoated block to tap for coolant to my turbo. Anyone have experience in tapping a VR block on the backside, to the lower right of the turbo? The other turbo coolant port will be plumbed from the "crack pipe", around the block and trans in braided stainless.
      I will post pictures of the area we will tap tommorrow.

      About time! Ha ha.

      Looks awesome man. When do you think the interior will be buttoned up and the car ready for a wash? Do you plan on keeping a full stock interior?

      The interior is actually pretty close to being buttoned up. All seats are in, my harness set-up is installed, all door panels and Focal speakers have been installed. The headunit can be plugged in and and operational in minutes. The amp will be mounted in the trunk in the stock monsoon location. There is some final wiring that needs to be completed in the interior, but that can all happen after the motor is in its new home. The battery needs to be final mounted in the trunk so we can finalize the electrical system. I swore I would not wash the car until after we break in the motor. I am thinking I will even leave my rusty winter steelies on for break-in; although the "rusty-hood" crowd would love to see the jetta in its current form with my 17 inch BBS RS on there. We will see what comes of it.
      The big pieces of the puzzle will be mounting the intercooler to the frame rail somehow. Everything else will come together around that. I also have to figure out where the "Godzilla" DV is gonna go. It is a biiiig boy. I will use the nice camera again this coming weekend to show how we use the "engine-swapping" tree.

      Motor and trans are out of the shed and mated together. All turbo lines are installed and tight. Tommorrow the chasis meets its drivetrain, and the real fun starts. More to come...

      Read the thread, Boss. It is an R32/Toureg head that has a port & polish, 5 angle valve job on stock valves, titanium retainers with dual valve springs from 034, and TT 264/260 cams. This motor will rev to 8200rpm and we are expecting to make power up there.

      Dogbone mount is not installed. Motor should sit a bit more upright once the third mount is in. Downpipe fits perfectly. I need to get hardware to mount up that wastegate flange to downpipe recirc. Now for all the hard parts. Gotta fit 4' turbo inlet plus the the intercooler. I have better pics of the bay to post up later.

      Where do we go from here...
      Tommorrow, we start looking to power the car up with the battery in the trunk. I also have my v banded cat and ss overaxle 3" to a flowmaster. The difficult part will be fabing up brackets to mount the intercooler and fabbing a 4" inlet all fitting on the driver side. That should be fun.

      Yea, that is the engine swapping tree. We have used that tree so many times that it has a pulley strap permanently grown into the trunk. Add the chain pulley system and it makes doing man-work a little easier. We bolt the trans to the block, suspend it from the tree, and actually push the car into its new drivetrain.
      Today, we helicoil'd the trans mount bracket and successfully bled the clutch/slave system. I have a working clutch pedal. Tommorrow we should have all three engine mounts in. I went with VF engine and trans mounts, with a 034 track density dogbone mount. We will also start hanging the stainless exhaust components. C2 supplied the 3" mandrel bent over-axle piece. I have a high flow mettalic substrate cat with v bands, and i will have a post-cat o2 sensor. We will try to work from the bottom up during the next few weekends. Hoping to have her running by mid-August. Can't wait to start hanging the remaining AN/coolant hoses and finish off that engine bay.

      Can some of the C2 and Uni Turbo guys post up about their Post-cat O2 sensor please. Is it operational? What is its function if SAI/EVAP is removed from software? I did not ask for it to be removed on my software. I have a cat with o2 bung--do I run the secondary O2?
      Primary O2 is in downpipe, with second bung for my wideband gauge. So far, everything fits great. We spent the weekend helicoiling the transmission bracket, and did not get a ton done. Need to pick up the pace a bit in the next few weeks.

      What is the function of the secondary(post-cat) o2 sensor in stock programing? How does some of the turbo software (c2 R32 turbo file) change or affect the function of the rear o2?
      Thanks in advance!!

      Pretty sure THE ONLY function of the 2nd O2 is to check on the difference the CAT makes. Basically it's there to make sure the CAT is still doing it's job. Everything else reads off the primary.

      Oh, you're in NJ. Are you running a cat? If not, get something that looks like one. Put the O2 sensor where it needs to be since you need it for inspection. If you get a CEL because of the high flow cat, you can always get that programmed out, but still have the sensor in place for visual inspection.

      Oh, you're in NJ. Are you running a cat? If not, get something that looks like one. Put the O2 sensor where it needs to be since you need it for inspection. If you get a CEL because of the high flow cat, you can always get that programmed out, but still have the sensor in place for visual inspection.


      This is true, and most 24vT files ignore the second O2 sensor, but just leave it there and plugged in to pass the visuals. It will not be doing anything functional though. Make sense?

      Getting there.....as much work we get done, it just shows how much is actually left to complete. Neither me or the car will be anywhere near ready for H2o...trips like that cut into work time on getting the car on the road.

      I am having alot of issues with with the C2 over-axle stainless piece i have, so the thought at the moment is have it trailered to a local shop that welds stainless to have everything finished up. Currently, all O2 sensors and catalytic converter is installed. The cat has v bands on both sides, and I have a single v band flange on the shelf just for this purpose. 3 inch exhaust will be emissions compliant for NJ, and hopefully will not keep me from making decent numbers.

      Looks good, but there is so much silicone. Are you going to build a pipe from the turbo to the AWIC?
