    Just curious, what kind of times are you guys getting with k03 setups? I am going to head to the track in the spring once I get my Limited slip diff and new tires on and see if I can't beat my previous best of a 14.6008 @92 mph.

    Welp, I finally got the old girl chipped, and man what a difference. I've been in many chipped cars, but it's always different when it's your own. Picked it up from a new local shop called BVA Motorsports, and they were great guys. They made a special trip in on Saturday to chip me since I...

    We are having 1st annual VW racing. I may take my car down the track if given the option. 1. What the best way to leave from a stop for these cars. This is my first turbocharged car. 2. Does anybody have a time they have run in an unmodified Tip car.

    You're probably better off buying an old Supra or RX7 or a newer STI an working on that. I mean a stock B5.5 1.8T Tip does 1/4 mile in 15.92 seconds @ 88.4MPH(manual a little faster) and pouring thousands into it will only improve it a little bit. For all the money people are spending on these...

    Ok i had a 1/8 inch tube connected to my boost gauge and it worked fine until the connections never really stayed put so i put a 1/4 inch on and now the gauge is slow to respond, compared to the 1/8 and i was curious if that affects how much pressure is actually being put into the engine, or is...
