Good morning dubbers,
I'm new to the vw world of tuning and I'm in the process of getting my mk5 rabbit tuned. Have done the unitronic stage 1 + but I want more but... I don't want to spend the cash on a turbo kit. I've done too many. Wanted to try something different. The sauce.
Let me know who has used it on the 2.5 and feel free to share other knowledge about these motors. Or anything about the mk5.
PRO - Blows up Engines
PRO - Makes cool flames
PRO - Allows you to run away from your car screaming NOS as it explodes
CONS - Illegal
CONS - Illegal
seems like alot of people on here speculating about what nos does..
i ran NOS for years (many years ago), never blew up anything, had lots of fun
its like any other FI setup, you do it wrong and there will be repercussions, do it right and it will be lots of fun

CONS , its not a constant power adder , not legal for street use
pro, super cheep, driveway install, contrary to all the "experts " that have posted it does no damage to your engine , in fact it will clean most of the carbon off your internals
that being said there are a few things to consider
1: fuel and timing s a huge factor , run only shell 91 , and you will need a ignition controller to retard the timing 2 degrees for every 50hp of expected gain
in all bottle fed cases i recommend TWO (2) points of activation one being arming switch and nothing other than full throttle activation .
all those engines you see blowing up are from nitrous pooling aka puddles .
anywho .. i say buy a zex kit they have by far the best components on the market
but at the end of the day they all get the job done
i will conclude that if done with care and proper research MOST stock engines will handle a 100hp shot all day long after that running lean becomes a major issue , like any other power adder there are stages, all requiring supporting mods. know the engines limits and stay beneath them
after that .. go have fun
