the tank is std and fuel lines just modified a evo 7 walbro 255lph in tank pump and all seems in order ,as far as drive train ( drive shafts and stuff ) just std ,but over hauled and all seems to be fine ,a friend of mine is running 360hp in his rallye and has no issues in the last 18mnths !!!! proof enough for me ..
mapping !!! just been put on short time and gotta leave it alone for a little while ,450quid is what i am looking at to map it so maybe a couple of months
mapped at last ………awsome …
well it went to pj motorsport of wolverhampton fri ( courtesy of my sponsor matt of dubunit ) after a few teething issues she got mapped up :huh:
she pushed out over 400 but due to intercooler instability temp issues and boost pipe restriction ( causing excessive turbulance and air temp increase at 26psi ) pj decided for safe play and engine protection 380bhp will do for now …need to up size the boost pipes to 2.5″inch(current 2″ )and need a better core in the intercooler mine is old and insufficient to maintain the intake temp required to push the boost on !!!( gutted )
the car is relentless in its power delivery and puts it on the floor effortlessly ( love the syncro )due back on the dyna pak tues for some more detailed fettling ….
again thanks to matt (dubunit) and all the people who have helped along the way
awesome o/ You must be pleased as punch!
yes mate very happy …..just some fettling to do now …jus bought some 312mm audi tt brakes ..so the rotas and g60 set up for sale now !!!
well been back today to pj motosport …the low end fueling much better now pulls clean like a n/a then the whoosh put a grin on my face and tightens the butt lace !!!! :blink:
think i have a issue with fuel surge now though ,as when she boosts hard and i have less than a 1/4 of a tank the power backs off then comes back in like a tonne of the proverbial….swirl pot !! or baffel the tank ????
but fair play to pj motorsport they have said “bring it over and we will do all we can “top team over there very clued up and very thourough …they deffo put the priority on making engine last rather than push it til it breaks ….and will explain what is going on all the way through …. proper petrol heads…
a baffled tank would be no bad thing by the sounds of it. I didnt know you could get fuel swirl pots- ive only come across cooling swirl pots
think i am gonna use the stuff my mate has got in his rotax cart …its a composite foam thats fuel resistant you place it around ya pump to make a wall to prevent the fuel from rushing away !!!simple its about 30quid a block and ya just cut it to shape and pack it in tight ..
will keep ya posted
2wd or 4wd you decide ….?
used the car stats calculator to play wih some figures ….
mk2 golf 2wd with a 20vt garrett gt30r gives ya
Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 375 Weight without Driver (KG) : 1100 Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 346.38 0 – 60 (Secs) : 4.24 0 – 100 (Secs) : 9.166 0 – 100 (Secs) : 4.92 Quarter Mile (Secs) : 12.46 Terminal Speed (MPH) : 116.66 Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 12.26 Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 118.82
or do you do this mk2 g60 syncro 20vt gt30r ( 4wd )
Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 350 Weight without Driver (KG) : 1150 Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 309.23 0 – 60 (Secs) : 3.51 0 – 100 (Secs) : 9.196 0 – 100 (Secs) : 5.68 Quarter Mile (Secs) : 12.16 Terminal Speed (MPH) : 115.00 Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 11.76 Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 118.97
same bhp as 2wd but with 4wd !!!!!!!!!!!!
Power at Flywheel (BHP) : 375 Weight without Driver (KG) : 1150 Power to Weight Ratio (BHP Per Ton) : 331.32 0 – 60 (Secs) : 3.35 0 – 100 (Secs) : 8.706 0 – 100 (Secs) : 5.35 Quarter Mile (Secs) : 11.97 Terminal Speed (MPH) : 117.33 Drag Strip Quarter Mile (Secs) : 11.57 Drag Strip Terminal Speed (MPH) : 121.41
just some comparison figures
4WD with all that power the weight is not an issue, so use the 4wd for better power transfer and better handling and best of all more fun!
350 bhp trough frount wheels of a mk2, lack of traction will piss you off rarely get to use the power
4×4 will give a lot of good fun. FWD will scare the **** out of you, all that power without control is a bad idea.
Would I be correct in thinking that the above performance figures were obtained under optimum conditions?
But given the average greasy & sometimes wet & slippy road conditions that most of us have to contend with,
its no contest, it has to be 4WD [8D]
sorry – I logged in and thought I was on the gti international/pvw forums for a moment… people going on about 350bhp through the front wheels etc
Isn’t this argument settled every time a syncro meets a gti?
