    Thread: vrt millage

    1. 03-12-2012 09:58 PM #26
      i was aiming for around 350whp.. i just don't know how much i want to tear into it. i've read that is you have good compression to not mess with the bottom end.

      Agree with most of the previous posts. You don't "need" them. I've run up to 20 psi without them and not had any issues. If you foresee yourself increasing the boost beyond 20 psi it might be worth the investment but given the HP goals you have defined they are completely unnecessary.

      There is also a high milage VRT thread out there (too lazy to search now for you) but give that a read through also.

      Good thread mentioned above. There are a few with ~180k on the clock.

      Here is the thread.

      When you search Google, type in Vwvotex. First link select more results from Vwvortex. Delete the second Vwvortex in the search bar and type in what you want. Will only search for results from this site.

      Or put site:vwvortex.com in the search bar put a space at the end and type what your looking for.

      found it.. lots of people running stock motors at 130,000k+ with boost. and a lot of daily driven vrt's too.

      makes you relize how strong these motors can be if they are taken care of..
