      maybe its the high flow exhaust manifold and/or intake manifold that helped. timing isnt set very aggressive at all until the water/meth goes in

      My car is in the workshop at the moment being built.
      Hope to get it on the road in about two to three weeks.
      It is a VW Polo GTI 2006.
      Installing:

      Bought a crate AGU motor with AEB head
      IE 2.0l stroker kit
      F23
      3"maf with phatty TIP
      DNA custom software
      Bosch EV14 550cc Injectors
      Bosch 044 Fuel Pump
      Relentless V3 ceramic coated manifold.
      Phenolic Intake Manifold Spacer
      Standard intake manifold for now
      THS dual pass intercooler
      Forge dv008 diverter
      Wavetrac LSD
      42 draft designs stealth catch can
      Custom 3in turbo back exhaust
      Ebay 3in Carbon CAI

      Maybe Doug can help out with some Martindales at a later stage.

      Polo's only weigh 1190 kg, about 2600lbs so it should be fun


      A couple of older pics. More once build is done.

      Just curious, if there is anyone out there running a high flow fuel pump with the base uni ft (F4/F21) tune, and if there are any benefits over keeping the oem fuel pump. Currently I am undecided on whether i'm going to upgrade the stock block, so just trying to squeeze all I can out of it...within the limits of the stock block of course... basically looking for power gains in the higher rpms...

      No benefit unless your current fuel pump is inadequate. Log some full throttle pulls and monitor injector duty cycle and Lambda.

      Plus if you are running the stock pump and have a high milage car it wouldnt be a bad idea to get a genesis intake pump from USRT. I was having fueling problems with my stock pump at 90k...USRT pump took care of that...keep an eye on those logs...

      A mid-range pump upgrade, the USRT in-tank unit pairs nicely to any F21T build. It is capable of supporting 300bhp, even at an elevated 4bar fuel rail pressure. Plus it is a simple replacement for the pump hardware in your Mk4 car.

      Thanks for the feedback guys, it looks like i will be giving this additional consideration as i hadnt even thought about the wear my stock unit has on it (+108k and counting)

      It seems like most people run MBC and bypass the N75 mechanically. Why? My setup used the N75, no MBC, No surging, no spiking, worked like OEM.
      lol, Nope.

      Its all in the tune and also the wastegate actuators are having some issue/not being set properly. Its sorta hit or mis. Gonzo was able to tun my car without the MBC where I needed it with the Unitronic tune.

      First thing my tuner did was check WG pressure via no n75 lol What issues are going on with them?
