I ran it that way for ~ 40,000 miles. Just cuts a little power in the summer temps. Nothing terrible, just an irritation.J_brill said:Is it okay to run the factory side mount intercooler with a k04? That would really help my budget!
All u need is the turbo, ecu, 5 bar FPR and the misc. items. No need for injectors. If you're ever down in OC and want to test drive one let me know?J_brill said:That's good to know. So all you really need is the turbo, ecu, and injectors (+ obvious stuff like intake, dv, and exhaust)?
Ditto on MB 032. All it would take is a small boost leak anywhere to go even richer, then at WOT you get fuel cut back. Just because you're reading decent boost at the manifold doesn't mean you don't have a leak somewhere. I'd have to check to be sure, but I think my pressure right now is around 52 and that's with the slightly larger maf housing which will lean it up slightly. Check trims and see what they show.dpinell said:don't have to "log" block 032. Just see what values are in there right now. be concerned about the 2nd value. if it's in the negative then the car is running rich. You can then fiddle with your fuel pressure to get it closer to 0.
Block 020 isn't that bad. It has some high CF at some points. But relatively in the 6's and below. Also log block 003 to get a look at that total timing BTDC.
Thanks! It's winter here now and I'm back to 6's, seem to work the best. Maybe I'll try the IX 7's now or just try the 8's next year when I'd normally switch back to 7's. At $7-8 a pop, the experimentation is a little more expensive.Pat, try out some NGK BKR8E-IX. I'm able to boost a little more than normal. I don't have any data but u can tell a small dfference. They're a range lower than the copper plugs that u use. Also, these are copper plugs too its just that the tip is iridium. No need to regap. They already come gaped at .28
Yeah, it is. I was able to get them for $6.70 ea. Try a local shop or order them online. They'll last you longer...about 15K miles.Thanks!

ONE8T, I just saw this post...nice job!Those two runs were done with GIAC bqk05 program with 3.75 degrees of additional timing advance across the board. Run 1 on the graph (actually the 3rd run) was 200whp/222wtq and was done with the extra timing backed off. Results are very similar to the Rusty email dyno.
3 bar Bosch boost sensor..Mods at time of e-mail dyno:
AUG engine code, K04 turbocharger
GIAC programming - chk01a file (K04 program for 2001.5 Audi A4)
Custom MAF housing (designed & made by yours truly)
380cc injectors - Siemens DEKA with 3 bar FPR
GFB plumbback diverter valve
NewSouthPerformance intake manifold gasket
NGK BKR7E copper plugs, .028 gap in summer
3 bar Bosch boost sensor (eliminates overboost codes, throttle cut & limp)
"H" N75 valve
ECS Tuning lightweight/underdriven crank pulley
ITG Air Filter
Techtonics 2.5" exhaust with Borla muffler & straight tip
