      Turbo Hatch
      10-24-2014 02:08 PM #1
      I don't recall making a thread about this car in the Forced Induction forum. I've owned this car since 2011, and it has had the GTX35R setup on it since May of 2013; about 20k miles and counting. It has 159k on it, and I drive it anywhere between 200 and 400 miles a week. It made 384whp/316wtq @ 19.5 psi of boost.

      Turbo components were supplied by www.atpturbo.com.

      Fabrication of the manifolds, charge pipes, down pipe, etc. was done by Ed @ www.fferacing.com. Also bought the clutch, LSD, and Tial housing for the turbo through FFE.

      Current setup:

      2006 GTI 2.0T

      Turbo Kit:
      GTX3582R w/ Tial .63 a/r V-Band turbine housing
      FFE Tubular bottom mount exhaust manifold
      FFE custom intake manifold utilizing a back plate that I designed and machined with integrated velocity stacks
      FFE aluminum throttle body pipe, charge pipes, downpipe and dump tube
      FFE 4" diameter intake
      Tial MVS 38mm wastegate
      Tial Q BOV
      Garrett 600hp intercooler
      Hallman MBC
      GHL 3" exhaust

      Engine:
      Stock, at the moment
      VF engine mounts
      HPA subframe insert

      Fueling:
      Autotech HPFP internals
      RS4 injectors
      Custom stainless steel protective cover for the N276 valve, designed and made by me.

      The car is currently running a .doTuning tune.

      Clutch/Transmission:
      Clutchmasters FX725 twin disk
      Peloquin LSD
      Dieselgeek Sigma 6 shifter
      TWM Performance weighted shift knob

      Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Tires:
      18" BBS CH
      225/40/18 Hankook S1 Noble tires
      H&R Ultra-low coilovers
      Brembo slotted and coated rotors, front and rear
      Hawk HPS pads, front and rear

      Thank you!

      Dailying the FX725 is not that bad, now that I am used to it. (This is my first twin disc clutch) It does get a little frustrating in traffic and on large hills when there is stop and go traffic, but other than that, I enjoy it.

      Most likely because he was sick of dealing with clutch bull****.

      What kind of issues? the 725 is good for like 650ft-lb tq (or more) isn't it? It's a nice clean build, I'm not knocking it - just asking a question.
