Was surfing through Vortex's engine boards this morning and found this stuff here. Some crazy stuff goes down if you aren't paying attention. Car he has this time is only 2200 lbs and doesnt get boost until about 5000 rpms. :???: Enjoy.

put this in your pipe and smoke it

29-30 psi (per the Haltech MAP), 28 degrees advance, 3" turbo back, about 112 octane(mix of 105 and 118) Precision SC44(60 trim T04E with a stage 3 T3 hotside, .63 a/r) Stock AEB bottom end, Schrick cams, 5 angle valve job in an otherwise stock head(no porting) I typicalkly rev the car to 7600, but my friend was driving the car while I was on the lap top, and he got out a little early on this pass. It was about 90 degrees and 90% humidity.

Not at all in love with this turbo. It works, but there are way better things out there. The lag isn't so bad as it helps the car to get traction, but I could live with a little more wheel spin. Car straight moves making this power. Nuts fast. The last time I took it to the track, on slicks, it was only making around 330 wheel, and trapped 122. Should be hitting Ennis Friday night...

Made 419 on the GIAC Mustang Dyno, on 100 octane. But it was a much cooler day, and way less humidity. On 118, could have been up near 430, but we will never know for sure.

I still have more tuning to do, and will probably find some more power with the current setup. The the new turbo will go on. Leaning to the GT35 at this point... should be anough to blow this thing up... =)

Yea, I followed his progress back on his MKIV and now on his A2 GTI. Very stout car no doubt.

True, but he used nitrous on the old motor/car/setup. He is just sticking to boost right now.

Agreed, we all know about the Mk4, but some didnt know about his A2 that he has now. Pretty cool little rig. I wouldnt mind it. Remember, he's doing all of this on an AEB block and stock internals. 30psi, we here would only push 25 max in most cases.
The reason for that is because AEB blocks are the strongest 1.8t made.....they were just put in the wrong position on our cars.....work great when you rotate them just like GTI/Jetta engines.

You should see the difference between the intake ports of AEB and others....much bigger. Many MK4 people are putting AEB heads on these things.....

I would have to say that its true based on my AEB.....runs like a champ.

I have heard of the same thing. Ive read a few things as well that people would take an AEB head and swap them out on their Mk4's mainly because they flow better with a new head and manifold. I wouldnt mind seeing the gains of, saw... an ATW engine with an AEB head and AEB manifold. You may have close to say... 200 hp at the crank? Maybe 190? Im really not sure.

As for N20, yeah he isnt using any on this motor. He also said that on the old one, what blew the motor was the torque. He figured about 450 ft lbs on the internals at the time of him blowing it up. Right now, even with all of the boost and hp, he is only getting about 350 or something, which is much more managable. I read through the whole thread and was pretty impressed at his knowledge of the engine and the stuf he's using to accomplish this power.

Yea, I am pretty sure he still has his built motor sitting on standby. I know he had one ready when he blew the stock motor in his MKIV, but he got out of the scene after that and I don't believe he ever used that built motor.

I remember 4/5 years ago when all those VR6 guys were talking so much shit about the 1.8T. Arguements galore over on 'tex. Now they can't get enough of the turbo.

That's it. Now I have to hunt him down and run him. Can't beat my chipped 1.8T :roll:

Go to a dealer and ask then if you can look at a intake gasket of AEB and then any GTI engine....you will see. The opening on the AEB is sooo much bigger.
