    New Garrett Turbos for MQB

    The G25-660 is the big offering. It's just poor engineering. Too much wheel, not enough housing. EQT ran into the same issue testing their first prototype of the next gen turbo...so they revised the design. Garrett either didn't bother to test or didn't care that the turbo is choking itself...

    G25-660, the bigger of the two current offerings.

    The G25 is surging above 5k rpm. Real surge in the top end, not a little spool flutter. I also think you're going to be very disappointed if you think the baby Garrett is going to hold 29psi to redline. The big one only holds 30 before exceeding the rpm limits and voiding the warranty.

    RIP this turbo. Talk about surge, yikes. Garrett seemed to just stuff big wheels into small housings without actually verifying it would work. 😬

    New Garrett Turbos for MQB

    First dyno test of the big one shows it's a wet noodle. Doesn't make over 30psi without excessive shaft speed. I don't like to judge spool on a dyno but that looked like shit too. I'll reserve final judgement until there are more results but this thing looks like a major fail. People will buy...

    EQT tuning is Trash!

    Correct me if i'm wrong (i'm not rereading this bullshit) but that was in response to someone else who asked about a live tune, not the OP.

    EQT tuning is Trash!

    You've certainly got the monopoly on looking silly. Ed offers to live tune your car free and you fly off the handle because he didn't quote your post, but he PM'd you to work out the details. 🤡

    CHINESE DOWNPIPE

    No, unless you have a clogged cat it's unrelated. 115C is normal btw, especially with a little spirited driving or AC use.

    APR Stage 3 TCU

    I'm in love with this 1980 Malibu that's for sale locally, but I want to buy it as a roller and he doesn't want to sell it that way. The old school blown (carbed) SBC/T5 combo has no appeal to me. I've always wanted to do a big block. I think it's cool as hell to make 1000+ on pump gas lol.

    APR Stage 3 TCU

    agree. i don't know. I'm going to try to wait awhile but I have the itch already lol. I'm thinking LSx, Auto, RWD, all the boost. Maybe in an F-body, they're now old enough that a clean one is rare/cool. I keep thinking about a 5.0/A10 2018+ mustang too. I'm all over the place. Maybe i'll do a...

    APR Stage 3 TCU

    I was installing the clutch packs tonight so i actually started looking at things...the drive plate has 20 teeth that have been sheared off and are somewhere in the transmission (or have been turned to glitter). I missed it initially because it was all broken symmetrically. There is an inner set...

    Best Catch Can, prevent dirty intake

    Ordered the stuff to measure crankcase pressure, will report back in a couple weeks

    Best Catch Can, prevent dirty intake

    Yeah the upgraded Audi one. I need to figure out a little setup to measure crankcase pressure. A guy on FB claimed he saw a reduction when switching from an aftermarket setup to the stock setup, I'd like to do my own test.
