I took the supercharger kit off my red R32 and found oil in the air intake and piping. What can cause this and can it affect performance? Has anybody relocated the pcv on the vf kits?
Ok details...The VF kit is vented into the intake, the intake is kinda small so its creates a vacuum at high RPM's sucking the gunk and oil vapor out of the head onto your MAF and into your boost tubes/engine etc. This oil now mixes with your fuel/air mixture makeing your R32 into a weed eater burning all that oil.
The fix is to NOT vent into the intake tube...
Vortech vents their kits straight into the bottom of the airfilter, the bottom of the air filter has negligible vacuum even at high RPM's. So the small amount of vapors coming out of the PCV vent hole still get sucked into the intake system but its done properly without mess or smell...
Its just that simple

One day i will be on here.
2000 Pontiac Trans Am for sale: http://ls1tech.com/forums/vehicle-cl...s-am-auto.html
It is AMAZING. I still am having some problems with the UM tune but that should be worked out when I head back to PA...It does not help having crappy 91 on post when the tune is for 93 either. I will put it on the rollers when I have everything straightened out. I will do a couple runs in its current state, and then throw on a different pulley and run it again.
I DIDNT DO ANYTHING TO THE CAR UNTIL THIS WEEK IT'S AT TYROLSPORT AS WE SPEAK THEY ARE CHANGING THE KIT UP FOR ME ALITTLE ITS GOING BACK TO AN OEM MAF SENSOR, 630CC INJECTORS, TECHTONICS 264/260 CAMS, SMALLER PULLEY AND AN UNITED MOTORSPORTS CUSTOM FLASH WITH LAUNCH CONTROL AND NO LIFT SHIFT ALSO THEY SAY I WILL FEEL A BIG DIFFERENCE BEFORE THESE UPGRADES THE CAR ONLY MADE 265AWHP

Hi Bill and all the SC'd Guys. Thought I'd post something here.
I was one of the first guys that got a stage 4 supercharger installed. It came with a Vortech V9 blower that lasted me for about 1K miles. All 20 stage 3 & 4's had the V9 replaced with the V2 which is a bigger blower and is able to handle the power of this kit.
I 've had it in for 27K miles now and have never touched it except to replace the belt at 15K. It runs great. Starts up everytime and produces some nice HP. Always puts a smile on my face.
A few pics.
Hey guys, I am really inspired by what you have done with the R. When I go FI, this is the route I would like to take as well. The difficulty I am having is there isn't any such kits available for sale and guess one needs to assemble the necessary parts. Any advice and pointer how I can start this journey?? Appreciate your help.
Here is your kit if your ready= http://www.hpamotorsport.com/typhoon.htm
Hey Pat, I didnt remember you was one of the Stage 4 pioneers? Can you tell me/us a few bits of the story for historical reasons? I knew chef Jay was one of the oldies but not you lol. Your dyno is really good, I would love to know the AFR's for the giac tune. Anyway great to see your post.
I was in line to get the kit when it was being developed. Here's my story.
1st mods were a chip that I had done at AWE (GIAC), a intake, EIP exhaust. Nice power over stock. Still looking for more power I got some Techtonic 260/264 cams. Better power. Car ran great. Loved it.
I started going to some GTG's in PA at Scott's (Race) in 2006. Showing up were 2 EIP turbo cars (Kent and Rob) and 1 with a stage 2 SC. The FI cars were the ones that everybody were drawn to.
EIP and VF were the only ones that were making FI for our cars. HPA would be coming out with a kit soon but only rich people could afford it.
After driving down to EIP and riding in their Stage 2 turbo car I decided to go with a stage 2 SC.
I was told by VF that I would have to remove the cams cause they wouldn't work with the software that came with the stage 2 kit. Something that I did not want to do. But I was told that they were developing a stage 4 kit that needed cams. It would be out in 3 months. So I put my name on the list and had it mailed to AWE who installed it.
I drove it very carefully for the 1st 1K as I was told to do. After that I started opening it up and about 3 weeks later while pushing it to 6000 rpm's it sounded like glass braking in the charger. Thing blew up. Bearings, I guess.
I cut the belt that went to the blower and drove around like that for months while VF decided what to do with all the blown chargers. It was decided that they would replace about 20 of them free of charge. This was the period of a guy named (SMASH) was causing a big fuss about the whole thing and ended up getting banned from Vortex.
At this time we were offered a great deal if we switched to the Turbo that VF was developing but I decided to stay SC'ed. Some did switch and were happy with the decision.
This all cost VF so much money that they decided to stop production on the stage 3&4 kits and just stay with the stage 1 & 2 which are still available today.
As I said before, I am happy with my Kit and it has been running very good for 27K.
That's about it for now.
HGP-T 450PS, Unibrace, 225/40/18 AD08s, OZ Ultraleggera, Light BBK F&R, Recaro Interior, .:R extras, MFD Navi, Phatbox, JCaps, Neuspeed, PSS9s, H2Sport Stage 3, DLI-Teknik, GC links, bHPP, etc...
Thats not a small question... Most any Vortech s/c will fit as long as its Counter Clockwise with a straight discharge CCW. But all the other stuff is not so easy, you will need a drive system, boost delivery system, charge cooling system, fueling system, things will need relocated, etc... Its not easy to say the least. The HPA pictures do show most of the stuff for a stage 2 system, to go bigger you would need a aux drive system for the blower.
JMH Should get a good laugh, but DONT BE ME. Dont try and peice together a kit. Just spend the money on the Typhoon 2 and if anything, attempt to improve upon it later on with the larger blower.
Reason i say this is its costing me just as much peicing my setup together than the Typhoon IxH by a few grand, all said and done. Im sure if i had planned it correctly t he first time i could of saved about 2000 but thats ok.
I also attempted to rebuild the rest of the car at the same time which has also shifted some stuff to the right.
HPA doesnt make a bracket that supports anything but the Vortech trims of the V9 Blower. So ull be on ur own in that endevour.
hey hows it going!
names Cameron, I'm from Olympia Washington. I'm 22
i just bought my supercharged r32 a few months ago with a stage 1 vf kit . car drives amazing and pulls hard. just for safe precaution the first week of having the car i tore the hole supercharger kit completely apart and cleaned the hole thing out and made sure everything was in good condition.
everything looked great other then the guy put a little bigger pulley on it that happened to be one rib more then the belt. kind of bothered me at first seeing as how its hard to tell if the belts straight but i plan in changing it to make 10lbs anyways so its fine for now i guess. It works
cars current mods:
-vf stage 1 currently running 7lbs
- devils own meth injection
- shaved front bumper and hatch
- fully resprayed paint with bmw Sparkling Graphite roof, grille, wheels, engine cover and mirrors
- Bilstein Pss9 Coilovers
- VF engineering motor mounts
- HPA short shifter
- there's a hole butch of little things done to. that's the main stuff
still has all stock exhaust system witch also bugs me but I'm not made of money though so it will do for now also. also for a tune it has a vf giac map.
still planning on upgrading to stage 2 or maybe 3 and getting a good UM tune
would like to make 350-400hp daily drivin if possible.
any advice on anything i should do???? still really new to the SC club haha
heres a few pics on the R:

Please introduce yourself, name/where you live/etc.....
I will add you to the list on page 1....
As for mods let me think?
Bill aka vwgeorge2
I've got a RS R32 with a stage 2 VF kit, 2.5' APR exhaust, extreme dimensions boser hood, euro hid reps w/angel eyes and electronic leveling, alpine ina-w900 in-dash w/sat radio, alpine mrp-m1000 amp powering a 12' alpine type-x, euro front bumper(due to a rabbit jumping in front of me and destroying the stock one)
but, my names Justin, I'm 23, I'm active duty navy, going on 4.5 years, 2 deployments, I'm on the USS John C. Stennis over in the Persian gulf(middle east). courtesy of these deployments i just recently paid the last chunk of the R32s loan off and she now officially belongs to me.
My first vw was a 1997 golf trek, then a 2000 golf gti vr6, and now my R32.
I've owned it since September 2010, i cant remember who did the vf install but it still performs flawlessly.
Under the hood, I clean it weekly or as often as my work schedule allows.
Below is a rolling shot, its from when i had the Boser hood installed.
after i installed the carbon fiber boser, regular hood pins
as it sits now with aero catch hood pins.
i know a lot of people will hate on the cf look, i don't mind it for now, there's a small chance i may get it painted to match still.
I've got a list of things i "want" to do to the car, but $$ will be an issue as i will be going navy reserves back home so i can go to college.
-fix the awd(haldex wont communicate in vag-com)
-get seats re-upholstered(side bolsters/centers are pretty beat up)
-alpine component speakers
-fiberglass sub enclosure
-the list will never end...
Well, thanks for reading/viewing my post, i'm out, time to go party in the sandbox and enjoy the few days on land i get before we return to sea.
Words can not describe how much I miss being able to just see the R32, let alone drive it.
I REALLY like the way ur car looked with the BOSER! Awesome.
