    Thread: How to build a relatively inexpensive, reliable, 'powerful' 2.0 8v.

    1. 10-03-2012 11:03 PM #876
      276.

      142 with the 288.

      On stock valves.

      Oh, what I could have done with a BVH and MS&S.

      Might happen, but not to the scale you're probably hoping for. My daughter will be driving soon, and the plans are her buying an 8v Jetta. Simply for the fact that I know so much about these cars and can fix just about everything cuffed, blind folded, and in a coma.

      Quintin, the USRT LRIM doesn't come with a new throttle cable, does it?

      Yep. At 30+ mpg average, a tank of 87oct should last her a couple weeks. Wanna go OBDI for two reasons, the German head, and I can go Megasquirt.

      YOu guys give some great info....

      I was going to go TT268 with the "Big Valve" and HD Springs upgrade and porting/polishing and all that...Head has been stripped, cleaned/blasted and flowed/pressure tested now ready for the grind ....I am certainly going with the TT276 +4* and maybe a snail down the road just so I can say I'VE DONE IT on an 8V .....

      Question tho...C2 or TT chip?? I hear many say good and probably just as many saying bad about C2... I wanted to do M.S. eventually but its an OBDII head and I am probably going to DD this car then build a VRT I've had in my dreams a time or 2...

      Thanks for the encouragement..you gentlemen are ALL doing GREAT things in the DUB WORLD !!!!

      C2 is fine, there aren't many problems with them anymore. You'll make more power with C2 than you would with TT, probably, since C2's tunes are the most recent.

      I think if it was marketed more as "intake manifold conversion KIT" it would be far more appetizing for the $700 (plus shipping price)...

      honestly I would have no issue spending the $700 if it came with everything to do the swap, I'll even buy the new IM gasket! but I use my car everyday (pizza delivery ~ no joke!) and I need to do work on my car on my one day off... and be back on the road with no issues.

      and Lets be honest those 7 bills are a good amount of cash.

      Anyone have any real dyno's that compare a car with a stock airbox compared to a intake like a Neuspeed P-FLO or a Eurosport coolflo?

      I have. Problem is, every aftermarket company is going to say their intake increases HP. According to TT, the stock airbox is better, but I don't think this is a 2.0 dyno..


      In my 94, I have a Neuspeed top airbox set up to my SRI, very easy to make. Everything looks factory in the 94, I love the OEM+ look. Thinking of getting my SRI wrinklecoated black.
