      It wouldn't be a bad idea, next time you're under the car, to adjust the preload on the actuator rod.

      It only takes a few minutes and is worth the effort. Just unclip whatever is holding the rod to the flapper on the turbine side(circlip, pin, etc.), and turn the rod end (the thing with the hole that went over what you just clipped off) a few turns tighter so that when you put it back on the wastegate flapper, you have to kind of pull on it a little to get it over the nipple. That will add a little extra pressure to the wastegate itself and stop it from possibly slipping open under boost.

      Not sure where yours is in relation to the firewall but you might not even have to get under the car to do it.

      DO NOT DO THIS

      Every turbo is calibrated before it leaves APR. If you make adjustments, the calibration will be off.

      We used C16 on a custom FSI stage 4 build in Israel and put down 513 HP to the wheels on a GT2871R. If I recall correctly the turbo was basically wide open and even at super high boost levels, we were able to advance timing to mean best spark, meaning more timing wouldn't increase power.
      why not just tune if for shell urt advanced? Isn't it supposed to be basically the same or better performance than c16 with none of the headaches that go with running leaded?

      Not really sure how adding preload to the wastegate actuator rod will mess up any calibration. Unless it's some fancy electric wastegate that doesn't use a spring and a diaphragm. All that does is help prevent the wastegate from opening before it's supposed to

      Never heard of more preload ruining a motor before, it's actually been the fix for a lot of people having boost creep issues.

      MED17 is very picky about wastegate settings and predicted airflow. There are even maps in the ECU for modeled airflow over the turbine and through the wasteage. Bottom line, don't mess with it. We calibrate and clock each turbo before it leaves APR.

      So you tune for a leaky wastegate?

      No. We tune with a calibrated wastegate that opens a specified distance when a specified amount of pressure is applied to the wastegate actuator.

      Update. Massive part out. Everything will be for sale. But nothing gets sold until I get the first 2 things gone. Looking to swap engine's with someone who wants upgraded connecting rods(cbfa only). My motor has under 8000 miles would like yours to have 20,000 or less. Your motor plus $900 gets you mine.

      Next is the trans. Same thing with the mileage as above. 6MT with peloquin diff installed for yours plus $800.

      Prices for everything else will follow after I get commitment for these 2 items. Also must be fairly local to NYC.

      I have a few reasons. Mine is just really feeling it out right now. Probably won't let it go though. Wife wants a new touareg but we may get something cheaper and keep the gti as well. Don't know yet. Mind an completely change tomorrow.

      thanks. how do you like the like the radials? do they hook well, get any spin, wheel hop? just trying to get a feeler..not sure if i'm going slicks or radials..

      anyways, car looks on point.

      Thanks. Still get some spin. Haven't had any hop with them. Best I got so far with them is a 2.0 60'. If I keep the car I will most likely sell that set and get full slicks. Only problem is if I remember correctly they only make 15" slicks that fit our cars so would have to get the 2.5 caliper carriers and rotors to fit a 15" wheel.

      That's not bad. You're right on that...for 15" slicks we'd have to downsize the rotors and get new caliper brackets, which i really don't feel like doing..

      here is our other option, and this is probably what i'm going to do. i'm just waiting on getting my car back and i'll be placing an order for these.. M&H now makes a 17" slick for sport compact cars..they don't have as much sidewall as a 15" would obviously, but I still think it beats a 17" radial..

      little stretch? or would i be better off with 9's? if so what tire size could i get away with on each?

      absolutely will not fit a 9.5 under the fronts without a decent amount of stretch/poke. even the back, you're going to need a 215, maybe even get a 225 under there with some camber to go along with it.

      you may be able to get away with 9's all around, depends on offset, with a slight stretch. but i'm far from a fitment guru.

      I prefer the M&H's over my Hoosiers, and as stated in another thread, I'll be running them after a few more passes with the Hoosiers.
      Much better tire for 17" wheels. We have them on one of our customers MK6.

      Ingot a big apr box too. Full of Motul break-in oil and specific. Their prices are really good.
      Had to put it on hold until next weekend. Have to get all the gaskets and washers for oil and coolant lines.

      Did you happen to have launch control on your MkV DSG and did you record that 12.3 using it?

      I have to check for videos. My wife use to race that car and She used launch control at the highest stock setting (didn't have the DSG tune). She also let off the throttle a hair in first to help the tires stop spinning.

      Car is pretty much put back together, just have to button up the intake and fill with coolant and oil.. Miserable doing it while hungover today, no motivation. Will finish tomorrow morning..
