135WHP on the dyno. The fastback put down much bigger numbers, though, at 450WHP.
1987 GTI 16v, no build thread.
Post the sheet. I want to compare it to my 135 run.
90mm HG (+5 compression)
Gotcha, so about 11:1 five or take
Actually drove mine last night. I forgot how much fun it is
Hoping to hit the dyno soon, got to take care of the cel first ( maf issues). 130-135whp and I'll be happy with it.
I have been meaning to make a few little updates, but I have been busy working on a good friends' 95 Golf Sport 2.0 8v. He's new to the VW scene, he has been a "Honda-boy" since High school and that he hated VW's just because they are VW's. ..
Unfortunately, it was subjected to a ton of abuse by the PO!
It had a 3aRacing fart-can on the end of a 2" crush bent exhaust, a dented cone filter stuck on the end of the MAF, a "short shifter" (which was a cut shift selector rod) and PURPLE tints.
I spent the day removing all these horrible modifications with him, and we put on a TT 2.5" catback with a flowmaster muffler, a 42DD testpipe, a Eurosport cool-flow intake, my old Autotech 270* cam, and soldered in my old GIAC cam chip. We put on a SS 60/40 cupkit, as well as removing the tint. We put on a CL lip, too, and some GTI smoked tails. (All of these parts were sitting around my shop.. I have a shed full of VW parts ) Unfortunately, it's riding on OEM flyers for a little bit. He says it's much better than any Honda he has driven except for his old GS-R.
You ever get that feeling that you took someone over from the land of ignorance and idiocy and put them in a "real car" and educate them? It's such a great feeling.
hey guys I have a question about my car I have a 1996 golf and it had a intake, exhaust, and a chip. I added a 260 TT cam. Should I bother getting a new chip? like a bfi one? help is appreciated!
Surf Green love <3
Cars: MK3 Surf Green Golf Sport VR6, MK3 Teal GTI 20v
a matchin chip for you cam is always the best route if you have the money do it mr. hurt.. what else u got layinaround lol
Wondered this, I've got a Neuspeed supercharger on the car with a 2.25 Magnaflow cat-back.
Was planning on getting a high flow cat and headers. But do you think the headers will do much with this setup or just stick with the factory manifold and downpipe?
For the money you would spend on those, you can get an ecu/MAF tune upgrade from C2 and get more power. The tune used by Neuspeed runs on the lean side. The c2 tune uses a better tune with upgraded maf and injectors to get more power out of your charger. Couple that with a bigger cam, and you are lookin at 10-15 more whp easy.
What is the vacuum thing below my head? That when I remove the plug it almost kills the motor. And also on hard acceleration it kinda dies a little then goes
Because I have my mk4 intake top/bottom and fuel rails. And if I have to have it I can't donmy conversion
Well, guys, I did it again.. I bought a bone stock 2.0 Golf Sport. I couldn't pass it up! It was only 300 bucks. Has a blown engine but good sport plaid seats, interior. Some dings on the exterior, not too much rust. I may end up putting a low-mile 8v in it to replace the blown ABA in it. I may end up slapping on my old BBM lysolm kit.. Dang it. Money pit, money pit, money pit! Did I mention it's Surf Green?
Here's a few pictures from the seller:
A few dings here and there..

Love the seats
I already have a motor/trans lined up to go into the GTI.. It's just a plain OBD1 engine and 020 trans. I, well, spent some money on TT's website today.. I gave all my Golf parts to my friend for his..
Had to buy new stuff.

So Im confused....
Is this a How-to/DIY, or is this now your personal build thread / blog?
