      Why not remove the fender and mount it under? Or inside the fender liner? Seems like it would fit...

      Why not right on the passenger shock tower, since your return line is right there?

      I'm sure this pump location will be controversial. I'll get more photos when I'm back home.

      6an from filter/stock return to surge tank.
      10an to pump
      6an pump to rail
      6an rail to regulator and back into surge tank

      Still need to setup a hobb's switch for the high pressure setting of the fuel pump. I'm up state NY for the weekend but this thing is a few little things and a bunch of nights of tuning away from H2o. All major work done. I'm really excited--

      This mounting location should be controversial, and as a friend I don't approve of it! It almost feels like you're trying to pull a reverse Ford Pinto reenactment, or go back to your former Village Idiot days. With your know-how, I'm sure you can find of a better location for it, especially when it's something you're designing from scratch and don't have any rule restriction dictating the pump location.

      Pump and lines need to be within the crash protection zone but outside passenger compartment unless a fire system is installed in the car.

      Doug, did you try running it up over the cowl or relocating the batter so you have room on the passenger side for the surge tank?

      Thirded Doug....unless you are going to encase that in a reinforced tiatanium with some unobtanium supports...

      No joke. I'd be scared. Not trying to be a jerk or anything like that....but as a friend.

      Doug has an early AMU 225 quattro, his car is even an earlier production than my 01 narrowband since his car came with none of the traction control shenanigans that became standard later on.

      So how far would my 2002 TT Quattro 225 AMU be from qetting the amount of hp he has using the same setup without the AEB heads? I really want some but doubt I will be able to afford one. How much do they run?

      Agreed. Sometimes I think about what I could get selling everything I've collected and stashed, but it wouldn't reach near what I've spent.

      AEB heads can range between 200-500 depending on seller/condition/what they come with.

      One thing to remember is these heads all are from 1998/1999. If they don't have high milage on them they have time working against them. You'll need a machine shop to disassemble the head and replace worn parts. Seats will need to be replaced or cut and valve guides will need to be replaced too. Once in there it would be stupid not to do a valve train upgrade. The whole process can cost you a couple grand in parts and labor.

      The worst is adding it all up. Adding in current value of a stock car and then thinking about the 911 turbo you could have owned that would probably out preform the TT in every way and be more reliable too.

      Which is why I look at a silly man in the mirror everyday. Love the 911, but I also love my TT now..


      Please keep pushing the envelope so that all of my modifications turn out cheaper in the end. Your car is great

      THIS X 10000000. I've been so swamped at work that I haven't wrenched on either project in over a year. The plan is taking way longer than expected, but I've slowly started making progress again.

      I've already hit it with a 1.8T, just not in a TT. The more time you have, the less money it takes.

      No, you don't HAVE to have it, but it'll make it easier by a few psi of boost. There is no flat answer of "it adds xx HP." It depends on intake manifold, throttle size, piping size, pressure drop to the entire boost path, intake valve size, port work, boost level, fuel type, etc that determine how much it'll help. Air flow is air flow. Any reduction in turbulence or pressure drop will result in more efficiency from your turbo and more air in the cylinders. Larger, more smoothly flowing ports will do just that, up to a point of too big and you lose velocity.

      Pretty sure a 911 Turbo with a chip & straight exhaust (very easy on that car) would put down about or more than 450/500whp....

      Maestro is only like 1800 for 996 Turbo's I am watching the market very closely for the right 2002 996 X-50.

      Just want to avoid one with the ceramic brakes and that has had the coolant system fix already done.

      Front rotors & pads are 15k+ for Ceramics. The coolant system runs about 7-10k.

      IE seems to have the best head testing/cleaning process, they get into the oil passages, sodablast, and generally go above and beyond hot tanking, valve job, assembly, etc. If you know someone as intensive, use them, but IE is a major sponsor/tech of our forum
