Crazy, sometimes, but I just like going fast.Fucking Drew. You crazy bastard.
A local guy here is going to be running the same turbo. It's the most insane build. He has a Syvecs and will be running nitrous.
Curious about why he went with the 1mm oversized exhaust valves and which fmic did he get? Because I'm looking for a fmic that can handle the power.I don't have ig either but I guess it allowed me to?
2016 Golf R
Whwn I asked about the build:
Pretty good, should be finished the first stage this week, that is upgraded clutches, limited slip differential, pistons connecting rods valves and ported head with 1 mm oversized exhaust valves Then it goes to GT Customs for the Garrett g30-900, oil cooler, front mount intercooler, nitrous and Syvecs. Should be done in just over a month which is right on schedule.
Good find with A2B.https://a2bmotorsport.net/collectio...ts/a2b-motorsport-front-mount-intercooler-kit
Also jakes got an option to with a big boy IC too.
Good find with A2B.
Jake, as in GTI Jake? If so, I've been talking to him and he hasn't gotten a chance to work on developing a big boy IC because he still needs a loaner car for development.
I guess I fall into that 1% of the 1%? You know if I could lend you my car, I would but until I get a second car for daily driving, I have to DD mine.Same with the FMIC & 4” downpipe, I’m not going to spend any time on it unless someone’s buying one (thee one used for development).
Of all the Mk7s out there maybe 10% are modded & of those maybe 1% are buying American made parts (cost a lot more than Chinese made). Of those 1% there’s very few looking to make more than the 550whp rated V2 I offer already, so I can’t just spend thousands hoping that maybe someday someone will buy it.
I came here hoping to see dyno numbers, but I totally get that projects get delayed.
The Skyline in my shop now is planned to be a one month zero to hero project. GTX3076R, Billet intake, FMIC, TBE, stand-alone ecu, full fuel system, timing/WP, clutch, the list goes on and on. Just the logistics of getting 10k worth of parts & materials sourced is a several hour a day job for that entire month let alone the actual labor itself (which I’m not doing all of, most of it the owner & our friends are doing since we’re all mechanics).
Moral of the story is nobody’s waiting on Jake from State Farm, I’m waiting on everyone else (Golf R owners I’m looking at you lol). We first spoke about the R33 project January 17th and it’s already a quarter of the way done.
